Murchison Minerals Ltd has identified a fourth drill target after completing a surface time domain electromagnetic survey (TDEM) over the TOM2 anomaly (TOM2) located on the Brabant-McKenzie project in Saskatchewan, Canada last month.
Results of the surface TDEM survey on the TOM2 have defined the presence of a highly conductive shallow body coincident with magnetic high amplitudes similar to the Brabant-McKenzie deposit. The conductivity of the TOM2 is equal to or greater than both Brabant-McKenzie and the Anomaly D target and measures approximately 400 metres by 235 metres with a shallow dip of about 23° to the west.
Kent Pearson, CEO, commented: “In addition to Brabant-McKenzie, as well as Anomaly C and D, TOM2 now represents the fourth drill target we have defined on the Brabant-McKenzie project in the past year, and we expect to test this target during the winter 2018 drilling campaign. To date we have identified a series of significant drill and priority geophysical targets over 7.7 kilometres of the favourable geological horizon on the property. Specifically, the combination of the Brabant-McKenzie, Anomaly C, Anomaly D and TOM2 drill targets as well as Priority 3 and the TOM Trend continues to demonstrate the prospectivity of this geological trend. We will be further defining the TOM trend and Priority 3 geophysical anomalies with the goal of drill testing them. Additionally, we will continue conducting additional ground geophysics programmes on historic airborne geophysics within the trend of the favourable geological horizon. We expect to commence these programmes during the 2018 drill programme.”
TOM2 is located approximately 7.7 km south-southwest of the deposit and is readily accessible from Highway 102. TOM2 appears to be part of a series of identified geophysical anomalies, including TOM6, TOM7 and the Ryan Gossan (the TOM trend) that currently trends north over a strike of approximately 3 km.
