VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / February 15, 2022 / CMC Metals Ltd. (TSXV:CMB) (Frankfurt:ZM5P) (OTC PINK:CMCXF) (“CMC” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that ground magnetometer surveys have commenced on its Newfoundland properties in the Gander Zone. McKeown Exploration Services Ltd. of St. John’s Newfoundland have been contracted to conduct approximately 210-line kilometers of ground magnetometer surveys on the Bridal Veil Property (approximately 155-line kilometers); Terra Nova (approximately 35-line kilometers) and Rodney Pond (approximately 20-line kilometers). Data will be collected over the next four weeks and then interpreted by Dr. Chris Hale and John Gilliatt of Intelligent Exploration Services. Dr Hale is on the advisory board of CMC Metals Ltd. and is responsible for the design and interpretation of all geophysical surveys completed by the Company.
Ground magnetic surveys can help provide detection of mineralization associated with large- and local-scale structures (faults, dykes, shear zone etc,). The survey data can provide information about variations in the near surface geology as well as at depth. Ground magnetic surveys are also used to identify demagnetised zones which are an indicator of areas that have been subjected to hydrothermal activity. The heat of hydrothermal activity and fluid movements often demagnetizes rocks. Another benefit of these surveys is that they can cover a lot of area in a relatively inexpensive manner.
Mr. John Bossio, Chairman noted, “Newfoundland is one of the best jurisdictions to be working in. The provincial regulators are easy to work with, permitting timelines are some of the best in Canada and the world, and the Newfoundland Geological Survey is very supportive of exploration efforts.”
Mr. Kevin Brewer, President and CEO notes, “We continue to conduct early-stage exploration efforts on our Newfoundland properties. The properties have high grade copper-silver-lead occurrences in outcrops and these ground magnetometer surveys will result in enhancing our understanding of the mineralizing system(s) and determining the merit of conducting advanced exploration efforts on each of the properties. On Bridal Veil we also completed preliminary soil geochemical surveys and are continuing to wait for results from the assay lab.”
