MONTREAL, QUEBEC, CANADA– DIOS EXPLORATION has completed four drill holes following the discovery of the Falardeau Alkaline Complex, Saguenay, Quebec by diamond drilling the Falardeau geophysical anomaly reaching 2.5-3 km by 2 km in size and located some 6 km northeast of the Niobec Niobium mine. 

DIOS EXPLORATION commissioned a detailed petrographic study of the drill core to better understand the complex geology of the several hundreds meter width of very much altered alkaline complex carbonated rocks and this detailed petrographic logging has just been completed for holes M 2.3 and M 2.5 reaching a 402 meter and 345 meter length, respectively.  This drill core has just finished being split in two and is being sent for assaying for these two holes. Detailed core logging and splitting is currently ongoing for other holes.  The carbonated rocks are very strongly altered with pervasive alteration within the matrix, which might suggest mineralization content.  Results will be published as soon as available. 

The exploration team of DIOS thought the Saint-Honore Alkaline Complex host to the Niobec mine might not be a stand alone event in the area.  DIOS discovered the Shipshaw Alkaline Complex two years ago and is studying the newly discovered Falardeau Alkaline Complex, which seems a lot more altered, a good sign for niobium and rare earth potential.
