OMX Gold commissions high definition helicopter survey of Canadian project

Published by
Global Mining Review,

QMX Gold Corporation has commenced a helicopter survey across the southern portion of its property in the Val d'Ormining camp, Quebec.

This survey will be used to identify and better define prospective structures and additional intrusive features for analysis and future drill targets.

"The magnetic survey will be the most detailed survey undertaken across the 30-kilometer strike length of the Val d'Or Formation. The survey should assist QMX in the evaluation of the relationships between the major, roughly East-West trending, steeply-dipping Manitou, Dunraine and Viscount shear zones; the regional Z-folded stratigraphy of the Val d'Or Formation and potential intrusions. Our current model suggests a strong causal relationship between bends and flexures in the major shear zones and gold mineralization in nearby competent rocks, such as intrusive bodies." stated David Rigg, Senior Vice President Exploration.

QMX Gold has commissioned Prospectair to complete this survey by means of a caesium sensor installed on a cable towed by the helicopter at an average elevation of 30 m above the ground. Cumulatively, 3 700 line-kilometers of magnetic north-south profiles will be carried out during this campaign. We expect the final results and a completed 3D model with interpretation by the end of August.
