Xander Resources 2022 Recap & Exploration Plan Update

2022-07-27 04:22:17

Vancouver, British Columbia – TheNewswire – July 27, 2022 – Xander Resources Inc. (“Xander” or the “Company”) (TSXV:XND) (OTC:XNDRF) (FSX:1XI) is pleased to provide a recap of 2022 to-date and lay out its exploration plans for the remainder of 2022 including its maiden drill program for its Timmins Nickel Project located near Timmins, Ontario.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Closing of oversubscribed non-brokered private placement for the aggregate proceeds of $2,683,263.87  

  • Completion of several exploration milestones at the Timmins Nickel Project as the Company moves towards a minimum 2,500 metre drilling program 

  • Completion of a fixed wing gradient Mag-VLF survey that will be used to develop drilling targets at the Senneville Gold Project 

Deepak Varshney, Xander CEO, said, “So far in 2022 it has been a year of steady progress for Xander despite the challenges of the rapidly changing geo-economic climate and the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic. In late 2021 we completed an accelerated buyout of our Sennevillle properties in Quebec and acquired the Timmins Nickel Project. The closing of our oversubscribed private placement has put us in a position where a well funded treasury now lets us focus on exploration and we look forward to drilling these two excellent projects in the coming months.”

Timmins Nickel Project

The Company has completed multiple site visits, obtained permits, acquired relevant historic data from third parties, and begun a 3D Magnetic Inversion Study (the “Study”) using historical VTEM data as it moves towards its upcoming drill program.

The Company has also retained EarthEx Geophysical Solutions Inc. to fly a UAV‑borne magnetic survey over specific targets. The superior spatial precision of the UAV-acquired data will assist in diamond drill targeting by providing a higher resolution assessment of the depth to source, dip of the body and the overall shape and size of the bodies. The UAV-assisted magnetic survey is being flown at 50 m line-spacing with 500 metre tie-lines. A total of 145 line-km will be flown.

Drilling will be completed following integration of the UAV-survey data into a refined final inversion model. A minimum of 2,500 metres is anticipated to be drilled over two (2) months, with the finalized drill hole list and plan completed in September following the completion of inversion works.

Senneville Gold Project

The Company has completed a 1,150 line-kilometre, fixed-wing, high-resolution aeromagnetic gradiometer and digital VLF-EM survey using Terraquest Ltd.’s Matrix Digital VLF-EM frequency system. The results of the survey will be used to map new and refine known geological structures (faults and shear zones) that, together with historical data, will be used by the Company for ground truthing and follow-up exploration with the ultimate goal of developing high-value targets for drilling.
