Silvore Fox is currently performing ground checks on the geophysical anomalies from the VTEM survey at its Pick Lake high grade zinc property.
Silvore Fox is presently reviewing the interpretation results from the completed VTEM survey, along with all pertinent historical geological data compiled to date, and is in the process of evaluating and prioritizing a number of quality drill targets that have been identified for follow-up geophysical work and potential diamond drilling in 2012.
The first phase of Silvore Fox's 2011 work plan for Winston Lake is nearing completion with Geotech Ltd. having completed a 1,061 line kilometer helicopter borne Versatile Time-Domain Electromagnetic (VTEM) geophysical survey covering Silvore Fox’s 9,600 hectares of claims in the Winston and Pick Lake region near Schreiber in North Western Ontario.
The survey tested extensions of the favourable volcanic layers for potential new targets. Mr. Ian Chisholm, PEng, was engaged by the Corporation to be the lead consultant on this project. The 2011 work program is based on results from several months of compilation of all historically available information concerning the claim areas. “Two of the three local deposits tended to be deeply buried and the high end VTEM system was selected because of its recent reported successes at identifying more deeply buried targets,” Mr. Chisholm stated.
Interpretation of the data collected is being conducted by Mr.Chisholm and JVX Ltd. a geophysical consulting company, who are combining this new data with pertinent historical data with the goal of providing Silvore Fox with high quality drill targets. Silvore Fox will announce the survey results and provide further exploration updates on the property after completion of the interpretation process.
These claim areas being surveyed contain the zinc rich (15% Zn) Pick Lake volcanogenic massive sulphide deposit (VMS) and encompass the mining permit containing the similar grade Winston Lake and Zenmac VMS deposits mined out by the 1990’s.
