MONTREAL, CANADA–(CCNMatthews – Aug. 3, 2006) – SIRIOS RESOURCES (TSX VENTURE:SOI) has been advised by its partner, Golden Tag Resources Ltd, that it had released new information on the Aquilon extension gold exploration project, James Bay, Que., a property held jointly by Golden Tag (60 per cent) and Sirios Resources Inc. (40 per cent).
A summer field program on the Aquilon Extension property in James Bay, Quebec is planned to commence on or around August 10, 2006. This prospecting work comprising reconnaissance mapping and rock and till sampling in the prime identified target areas for gold-bearing mineralization from compiled magnetic data is a follow-up to the recently completed magnetic survey (FOR MORE DETAILS, SEE news release dated June 20, 2006) and is in preparation for a planned diamond drill program which will be undertaken at the first opportunity this coming winter. To date, exploration work, based among other things on a possible comparison with the Ontario Musselwhite gold Deposit., has traced a banded iron formation horizon estimated to be 60 meters wide over an area of approximately 10 sq km. The magnetic horizon lies to the south of high grade gold quartz veining discovered a few years ago on by SIRIOS on the main Aquilon property. The magnetic trend of the iron formation can be followed for a distance of over 5.5 km.
The TSX Venture Exchange has not reviewed and does not accept responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
