CMC Announces Completion of Transient Electromagnetic and Magnetic Airborne Geophysical Survey on all of its Silver Properties in Yukon and BC
Vancouver, BC.: CMC Metals Ltd. (“CMC” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: CMB) is pleased to announce the completion of 671.5 line kilometers of transient electromagnetic and magnetic airborne geophysical surveying by SkyTEM Canada Inc. on all of its silver properties in Yukon and British Columbia.
The geophysical survey was completed at a 100 meter line spacing over the Silver Hart and Blue Heaven claims in Yukon and at a 200 meter line spacing over the Silverknife, Rancheria South, and Amy claims in British Columbia. This data will now be analyzed and interpreted by Dr. Chris Hale and John Gilliatt, P. Geo. of Intelligent Exploration in preparation for proposed exploration and drilling programs this summer. This begins Phase 1 of the exploration program, focusing on the Silver Hart Project where the Company also plans to complete 5,000 meters of drilling and a variety of advanced exploration efforts. Exploration efforts will focus on follow-up work on known mineralized areas, current anomalies not yet fully investigated, and the new anomalies identified by the airborne geophysical survey. The Company is also proposing to undertake Phase II of the program which will include up to an additional 5,000 meters of drilling, contingent on the success of the Phase I program and our ability to source future funding for the proposed work.
Kevin Brewer, P.Geo. President and CEO of CMC noted “CMC would like to thank Coeur Mining Inc. for providing accommodations for the helicopter crew, assisting project logistics and working together with SkyTEM to make this project happen. We are very pleased that SkyTEM completed this project on time and on budget in challenging weather conditions. The completion of this work and analysis of the data before the 2021 exploration season is a key catalyst in our plans for advancement of the Silver Hart Project. This data will help us on all five of our silver-lead-zinc projects in several ways including (i) advancing our geological knowledge by identifying the important contact between the Cassiar Batholith and metasediments which is key to localizing mineralization in the Rancheria Silver District;
(ii) indicating areas of higher conductivity that may signal silver-lead-zinc mineralization, requiring sampling or follow-up with ground surveys such as soil geochemistry or additional IP/Magnetometer/VLF-EM to pinpoint drill targets; and (iii) locating possible carbonate horizons in proximal or contact relationship with the Cassiar Batholith, that might host carbonate replacement deposits. We are really looking forward to receiving the interpretation of the data as it will serve to guide our exploration and drilling efforts this summer. It will also give us a much better perspective on the overall exploration potential of the new assets we have acquired including Blue Heaven, Rancheria South, Amy and Silverknife.”
