MONTRÉAL, July 12, 2018 /CNW/ - Canadian Metals Inc. (The "Corporation") (CSE: CME) is pleased to announce it has discovered gold and other metals at its TV Tower property in New Brunswick. The property was recently optioned by Canadian Metals and is located 14 km south of the Trevali Caribou mines. The property is adjacent to the Caribou Wind Farm making Canadian Metal's exploration site easily accessible by paved highway and gravel road. Gold & polymetallic findings from initial hole TV-18-01, along with Channel sampling produced the following results:
Channel Sampling and Initial Drilling Highlights:
Rock Saw Channel Samples
+ 0.61 g/t Au, 0.40% Cu, 0.31% Zn, 0.03% Co in Channel B sample #3&4 over 2m
Including 1.01 g/t Au, 0.45% Cu, 0.17% Zn, 0.03% Co in Channel B sample #3 over 1m
+ 0.15 g/t Au, 0.40% Cu, 0,38% Zn, 0.01% Co in Channel A sample #3 & 4 over 2m
+ 0.13 g/t Au, 0.23% Cu, 0.03% Zn, in Channel D sample #2, 3 & 4 over 3m
+ Gold grade up to 1.01 g/t over 1 m
+ Copper grade up to 0.45% over 1m
+ Zinc grade up to 0.45% over 1m
+ Cobalt grade up to 0.03% over 1m
Diamond Drill Hole TV-18-01
+ 14.1m @ 0.12 g/t Au, 0.21% Cu, 0.20% Zn, 0.006% Co from 5.5m to 19.6m
Including 4.6 m @ 0.26 g/t Au, 0.40% Cu, 0.15% Zn, 0.01% Co from 15m to 19.6m
+ 2 m @ 0.53 g/t Au, 0.23% Cu, 0.09% Zn, 0.01% Co from 54m to 56m
+ Gold grade up to 0.54 g/t over 1 m
+ Copper grade up to 0.74% over 0.5m
+ Zinc grade up to 0.54% over 0.5m
+ Cobalt grade up to 0.02% over 1m
Note: Average assays values are Length x Density weighted, core length is estimated to be 75% of true thickness.
The company has completed 14 relatively shallow diamond drill holes and drilling is currently suspended to allow for analysis and interpretation. Initial drilling length of 744 meters has been completed and the drill rig remains in place on TV-18-14. Table 1. below provides coordinates and initial drill hole characteristics.
Holes are currently logged and sampled by C. Bisaillon P.Eng who is responsible for the preparation of this press release. Upon completion of drill hole TV-18-01, priority has been given to hole TV-18-14. In addition to near surface sulfide mineralization, this vertical hole drilled south of the trench and further uphill intersected significant sulfide mineralization over significant lengths at varying depths. NQ half core samples have been forwarded to AGAT laboratory in Mississauga. The attached core pictures confirm mineralization to a depth of 145 meters with drilling intersecting massive, semi-massive, quartz vein and disseminated sulfides. Sulfide mineralization is open in all directions.
The attached images provide property location (Figure 7) , drill holes and trenches locations (Figure 8) along with images of channel samples (Figure 6), core pictures (Figure 1 to 5).
Immediately following the discovery of gold and other mineralization at TV Tower the company has engaged Prospectair Geosurveys Inc. of Gatineau to conduct a helicopter-borne high-resolution magnetic and time-domain electromagnetic survey on its TV Tower, Mountain Brook and Brunswick Black Shale properties.
Stephane Leblanc, Chief Executive Officer Comments:
"Initial results from drilling, channel sampling and other exploration activities have been very encouraging. We look forward to utilizing these results to build a better understanding of the geology and we are committed to further advancing exploration work on our TV Tower property. The MAG-TDEM airborne survey should establish key priority targets, which should allow the corporation to advance this project rapidly. The discovery of a volcanic massive sulphide (VMS) located at the Iceberg Tip zone near surface are extremely conductive and their location, thickness and geometry could be identified using such surveying technology. Moreover, the presence of other massive sulfide zones in TV-18-14 to the South may suggest continuity of the Iceberg tip zone in that direction"
The regional magnetic survey has assisted in the new finding. The company is looking forward to receiving the survey report of this MAG-TDEM prior to commencing additional drilling.
Quality Control / Quality Assurance (QA/QC)
The samples were analyzed by the independent laboratory AGAT in Mississauga Ontario. The channel and half core samples are dried, weighted and are crushed to have d80 passing 2mm and afterward riffle split to have 250 grams which is pulverized to have a pulp d80 of 75 microns and pulp is taken in Sodium Peroxide Fusion ICP-OES/ICP-MS Finish for the metals and the gold by done by Fire assay with ICP. Specific Gravity by Pycnometer is done on every sample at AGAT at this stage. The standards and blanks inserted by GoldMinds as well as internal AGAT quality control are in line with expected results and allow public disclosure of the results.
About TV Tower
The TV Tower property is composed of a total of 53 claim units covering approximately 1,157 hectares. The TV Tower property hosts potential Zn-Cu-Au massive sulphide lens. A new target for mineral exploration, located only 14 km south of the Trevali Caribou mines. The geological unit comprises dacitic to rhyolitic quartz-feldspar crystal tuff, dark grey iron formation and massive sulphides of the Tetagouche group.
The core is NQ in size. The drilling crew boxes the core and Canadian Metals employees transport it to the core shack. In the core shack the core is geologically logged with sample lengths indicated. When the sample lengths are determined the core is split using an impact splitter with one half of the core being bagged and tagged for assay. The other half is returned to the core trays for storage.
