Callinex commences drilling campaign in Flin Flon mining district

Global Mining Review,

Callinex Mines Inc. has announced that it has commenced its 2018 winter drilling campaign at the Big Island and Flin Flon projects within the Flin Flon mining district of Manitoba, Canada.

The campaign is anticipated to consist of two drill holes totalling approximately 1200 m in the Flin Flon mining district to efficiently test two targets with significant potential upside.

Drilling at the Big Island project will test a high-priority borehole pulse electromagnetic (BPEM) target that spans 450 m by 675 m located down-plunge from the Tara Lake deposit, one of the highest-grade zinc-rich volcanogenic massive sulfide ore (VMS) discoveries ever made within the Flin Flon mining district. The large BPEM target at the Big Island project is highly conductive and also has a magnetic association that suggests the target is likely caused by massive sulfides.

Additionally, Callinex will test its Hook Lake target at its Flin Flon project, a target that has been identified by multiple electromagnetic surveys located near HudBay’s 777 Mine and Mill in Flin Flon. The target lies along a boundary between claims owned 100% by Callinex and claims that have been optioned.
