TORONTO, Oct. 08, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Labrador Gold Corp. (TSX.V:LAB | OTCQX:NKOSF | FNR: 2N6) (“LabGold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that a CSAMT geophysical survey is currently underway at its 77km 2 Kingsway Project near Gander Newfoundland. The Kingsway project is located within the highly prospective Gander Gold Belt along strike to the northeast of Newfound Gold Corp’s gold discovery announced earlier this year.
Controlled Source Audio Magnetotellurics (CSAMT) is an electrical geophysical technique that measures resistivity in the subsurface down to depths in excess of 500 metres. The resistivity profiles can be used to target silicification associated with gold mineralization as well as deep structures such as the Appleton Fault Zone.
The CSAMT survey is being undertaken by Clearview Geophysics and consists of 20 line kilometres covering an area of complex structure and significant gold anomalies. The structure is dominated by the Appleton Fault Zone and associated splays and cross faults outlined by a recently completed structural assessment of the district. Geochemical anomalies from previous work covering the survey area include gold values from below detection (0.5ppb) to 800ppb (0.8g/t) in soil, 111ppb to 1,073 ppb (1.1g/t) in till and 7 to 60 gold grains recovered from the till samples.
“We are excited to get the CSAMT survey underway as it will aid us in effectively targeting potential gold mineralization at depth along the Appleton Fault Zone and associated structures,” said Roger Moss, President and CEO of the Company. “It will complement the property wide soil sampling and VLF-EM surveys that are expected to produce anomalies for further follow up by the upcoming initial drilling program.“
