MONTRAL, QUEBEC–(Marketwired – April 30, 2014) – SIRIOS RESOURCES INC. (TSX VENTURE:SOI) announces the beginning of the diamond drilling campaign on the Cheechoo gold property adjacent to the Éléonore gold mine property of Goldcorp in James Bay, Quebec. Two drill holes will be executed at first followed by a temporary halt during the thaw. Once the conditions of access to land are re-established, the drilling program will restart along with the detailed prospecting and systematic rock sampling.

Recall that six drill holes completed on Cheechoo had previously localized a low-grade gold envelope with a minimum area of 250 X 525 metres and to a depth of 200 metres vertically (press release January 13, 2014). This envelope remains open at depth and in all directions except the south-east end.

The Cheechoo gold project is situated at less than 10 km from the Éléonore gold mine of the producer Goldcorp which the beginning of the production is planned at the end of 2014. This world-class deposit contains 4.03 million ounces of proven and probable gold mineral reserves and 4.10 million ounces of inferred gold mineral resources (Source: Goldcorp’s press release, March 28, 2014). Sirios concluded in 2012 an agreement with Golden Valley Mines Ltd involving the Cheechoo property that, upon completion of certain obligations and counterparties, will increase its interest to 100% (Press release December 9, 2013). Sirios is the operator of the project.
