STELMINE INITIATES A LARGE EXPLORATION PROGRAM (PHASE 1) AT THE MERCATOR PROPERTY
Stelmine Canada Ltd. has started its largest exploration program to date on the 100-per-cent-owned Mercator property located in northeastern Quebec.
The exploration program has already started and will be completed by mid-October. This first exploration phase has several objectives conductive to a second stage entirely devoted to drilling.
In detail, phase 1 of the program will include:
A definition induced polarity (IP)/resistivity survey on the 2.5-kilometre-by-500-metre gold-bearing Meridian zone to constrain the location of gold targets to drill. A complementary survey aimed at extending the areas of gold discoveries will be completed on the northern extension of the Meridian zone (T-Rex zone) where an important fold is suspected to deform iron formations.
Systematic/detailed geological and structural mapping of the Meridian zone to interpret the mineralized zones and characterize the nature of lithologies. Grab rock and channel sampling in the gold-prospective T-Rex zone north of Meridian.
Intensive exploration and grab rock/channel sampling of the 21 km long southwestern extension of the Meridian zone where preliminary prospecting identified gold- and arsenic-bearing iron formations.
Following a successful till survey campaign (C-Horizon) that identified new gold targets outside the Meridian zone, the company will carry out high-resolution soil surveys (100 by 200 m spacing) in the northern T-Rex zone and southwestern extension of the Meridian zone. Medium-resolution soil surveys (200 by 400 m spacing) on the northern and southwestern areas of the Mercator property will follow.
A particular attention will be given to the identification the lithium potential of granitic pegmatites and granites while exploring the property.
