In other news, Fieldex announces that it has received from the Ministère des Ressources naturelles et de la Faune (Québec) (Minister of Natural Resources and Wildlife), the Eagle Village First Nations and the Wolf Lake First Nations the permission to begin its fourth drilling campaign on its Kipawa Lac Sairs Project.
The Kipawa Lac Sairs Project is located in the Kipawa alcalin complex, 1.7 kilometres from Matamec Explorations Inc.'s Kipawa rare earth element-yttrium-zirconium deposit, located 100 kilometres northeast of North Bay, Ontario, in northwestern Québec, near the Québec-Ontario border.
The upcoming drilling program will be composed of 26 diamond drill holes totalling around 4,700 metres. The program will be a continuation of the seven-hole diamond drill campaign completed in February, 2012, where Fieldex intersected in hole LS-12-22 1.10 per cent total rare earth oxide (40 per cent heavy REO plus yttrium oxide (Y2O3)) over 19.55 metres at surface approximately 150 metres south of a subparallel 3.3-kilometre-long magnetic anomaly, oriented east to west and identified from a magnetic ground survey completed in February, 2011. No holes were historically drilled along the south vicinity of this anomaly, and a potential extension of the REE zone could be open to the east of hole LS-12-22 if the magnetic anomaly is associated with this REE zone.
Management of the Corporation is presently evaluating the financing options for its fourth drilling campaign on its Kipawa Lac Sairs Project.
Fieldex is a mineral resource company actively exploring for base and strategic group metal deposits located throughout Québec, Canada, representing an area of interest over 600 km².
