KINGSTON, ON, May 21 /CNW Telbec/ - Murgor Resources Inc. (MGR: TSX-V) today announced the beginning of a field exploration program at its Gullrock gold property near Red Lake, Ontario.
Preliminary work has started at Gullrock to carry-out a 40 line-kilometer Induced Polarization geophysical survey that will be followed by mechanical trenching, geological mapping and geochemical sampling during the summer of 2010. The summer program will be followed-up by diamond drilling in the fall of 2010.
The objective of this preliminary phase of exploration is to investigate a five (5) kilometer strike length of the NW-SE trending "Mine Trend" structural corridor at the Gullrock property. The "Mine Trend" structure is host to the Campbell-Red Lake, Cochenour-Willans and the MacKenzie Gold Mines, some 12 kilometers to the NW, where more than 20 million ounces of gold have been mined to date.
In January of 2010, Murgor completed a high resolution helicopter borne magnetic and EM survey at the Gullrock Gold property and was able to outline the location of the "Mine Trend" structure. The entire strike length of the Mine Trend structure remains untested at Gullrock. Several targets have already been defined at the Gullrock property on the Mine Trend structure where magnetic low anomalies coincide with zones of high chargeability, high resistivity, and gold in soils geochemical anomalies. None of these targets have ever been drill tested.
Murgor will continue to provide updates of the exploration results as they become available.
In other news: The company wishes to announce that Mr. Mackenzie I. Watson has resigned from Murgor's Board of Directors. Mr. Watson has, however been nominated to remain as an advisor to the Company. Mr. Watson has been involved with Murgor Resources for well over 20 years and Murgor is looking forward to his continued involvement with the company.
"On behalf of the Board of Directors, I wish to extend my sincere thanks to Mr. Watson for his many years of services to Murgor as a director and look forward to his continued invaluable advise in the future," said Tessier.
About the Gullrock Gold Property:
The Gullrock Property consists of eight claims located one kilometer east of Goldcorp's Red Lake property and on strike with the Campbell-Red Lake Gold Mine. The property covers 1,409 hectares of what is known as "the Mine Trend" south-east of Red Lake. The "Mine Trend" hosts the Campbell-Red Lake, Cochenour-Willans and the MacKenzie Gold Mines where more than 20 million ounces of gold have been mined to date. Reserves stand at 3.6 million gold ounces at the Campbell-Red Lake Mine (Goldcorp's annual report 2008). Despite the fact that the Gullrock property geology bears similar geology as the Campbell-Red Lake Mine setting, the property has seen very limited exploration work and its exploration potential is deemed excellent. Murgor has already identified untested coincident geophysical and gold in soil geochemical anomalies at the property.
