Enforcer Gold Corp (“Enforcer” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: VEIN – FSE: N071) along with Globex Mining Enterprises Inc. (TSX: GMX) is pleased to announce it has commenced its ground Induced Polarization (“IP”) geophysical survey at the Montalembert gold project. The 45 line-km survey will cover an approximately 1.5 x 1.5 km area over the main vein occurrences (Galena Vein & No. 2 Vein) located in the southernmost portion of the property. Géophysique TMC of Val-d’Or QC has been contracted to complete the survey and provide a 3D model, vertical sections and geophysical interpretation.
IP is one of the most useful geophysical methods in mineral exploration due to its ability to detect and characterize sub-surface disseminated mineralization and quartz. The silicified and quartz-bearing shear zones at Montalembert host 1-5% disseminated pyrite and/or pyrrhotite with trace amounts of chalcopyrite, galena and free gold. With IP, high resistivity anomalies can correspond to quartz concentrations while the relatively high IP chargeability anomalies may correspond with sulphide ± gold concentrations in the quartz veins. IP can be particularly useful in mapping the extension of a conductive mineralized zone under overburden cover, making it a valuable tool to aid in drill targeting.
In March 2017, a one-kilometre test line of IP was completed over the main vein occurrences with positive results. The 45 line-km survey is expected to be completed within three weeks of commencement and ahead of the start of diamond drilling.
