InvestmentPitch Media Video Discusses Tres-Or Resources' New Drill Program started on its 100% Owned Guigues Kimberlite Pipe in Southwestern Quebec - Video Available on Investmentpitch.com
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - December 10, 2019) - Tres-Or Resources (TSXV: TRS) (OTC PINK: TRSFF) has started drilling its 100% owned Guigues Kimberlite pipe in southwestern Quebec, a high-priority diamond exploration target. The Guigues kimberlite pipe, located 10 kilometers from Notre-Dame-du-Nord in southwestern Quebec, has substantial size of 5 to 7 hectares, excellent local infrastructure, and most importantly highly encouraging diamond indicator mineral chemistry which has never been tested by modern microdiamond methods

The Guigues Kimberlite, discovered by De Beers in 1983, was the first kimberlite pipe discovered in eastern Canada. De Beers, working at the time under the name Monopros, drilled two holes, and held the claims until 1989, when they expired. As Guigues lacked G10 garnet chemistry it was not further pursued by De Beers.
In 1987 De Beers discovered the Victor Kimberlite, which like Guigues, also lacked G10 garnets and was not prioritized by De Beers, which moved its Canadian focus to the North West Territories after Dr. Charles Fipke's famous discovery of diamonds near Lac de Gras in 1992. In the late 1990's, De Beers refocused on Victor after better recognizing the importance of eclogite as a potential mantle source for diamonds and utilizing more reliable microdiamond testing methods convinced De Beers they had a significant diamond mine at Victor. By this time, De Beers had lost the Guigues claims, which were controlled by Tres-Or Resources.
The dominance of lherzolite garnets found as inclusions in Victor diamonds, along with a lesser proportion of eclogite garnet inclusions, is unique among diamond mines around the world, and as Thomas Stachel, the University of Alberta researcher who made this discovery points out, may lead to a new model for diamond targets. The Guigues Kimberlite diamond potential, like that of the Victor Diamond Mine, within the same geological trend, is based on high- priority potential source of diamonds from mantle eclogite and lherzolite rocks, instead of the standard harzburgite (G10) sources.
Laura Lee Duffett, President & CEO, recently stated: "We're not looking for kimberlite, we're not looking for chemistry - we already know what we have. The are now the more advanced tests to quantify and evaluate what we have at Gig."
Tres-Or previously completed reverse circulation drill holes to the top of the kimberlite recovering indicator minerals, including numerous distinctive and high-priority eclogite garnets, a single chromite and several chrome diopsides. The abundance of eclogite and lherzolite indicators associated with diamond makes Guigues a high-priority unconventional diamond target, just like Victor.
Tres-Or plans to drill 5 drill holes, test all parts of the Guigues Kimberlite pipe, and recover core samples suitable for modern microdiamond testing. Budgeted at $679,000, the program will also test at least 2 more targets with 150 meter holes.
The company also has exposure to certain gold projects in the Abitibi region of Quebec that have been optioned to Kiboko Exploration Inc.
