Satori receives drilling permit for Tartan Lake Gold Mine Project

Global Mining Review,

Satori Resources Inc. has secured the permits required for it to commence drilling at its wholly-owned Tartan Lake Gold Mine Project near Flin Flon, Manitoba.

Preparatory work on the access road has commenced, drilling tenders are out for quote, and technical staff is being engaged to supervise a 3200 m diamond drill program targeting the down plunge continuation of the main zone vein system.

Satori plans to apply a modern, systematic approach to exploration at the Tartan Lake Gold Mine Project. In 2020, the company collected and reviewed the geophysical data from the 1980s in order to isolate geophysical signatures coincident with known mineralisation. Processing of the historic data with contemporary techniques has generated new drilling targets which show potential for additional high-grade mineralisation across numerous shear zones that transect the property. Therefore, 500 m of diamond drilling is also planned to test targets within 1000 m of the historic mine site.

It has been approximately 23 years since the past producing Tartan Lake Gold Mine Project has seen a significant drill program. Over 50 linear km of shear zones have been mapped throughout the claim package, but the majority of historical exploration focused on 3 - 5 km of shear zones in the immediate area of the former producing Tartan Lake mine.

The company believes that in addition to the potential to increase the mineral resource proximal to the former producing mine, there are excellent opportunities for additional discoveries given the unexplored extent of the shear zones that host the known mineralisation.
