TORONTO, Dec. 2 /CNW/ - Rockcliff Resources Inc. ("Rockcliff ") (RCR: TSXV) is pleased to announce that Geotech Ltd. ("Geotech") of Aurora, Ontario has completed a helicopter-borne, ZTEM survey totalling 2619 line kilometres on its Snow Lake VMS/Gold Project located in central Manitoba. The survey was completed on properties (Squall and Tramping) located approximately 6 km north and south of HudBay's deeply buried Lalor Deposit (discovered in 2007) where recent deep drilling intersected a new gold/copper zone grading 34.5 m of 5.33% copper and 13.35 g/t gold. The survey also covered four of Rockcliff's near surface copper-rich deposits (Lon, Reed, Kof and Sylvia) and additional areas with base and precious metal potential. Rockcliff's project covers 550 km(2) of favourable juvenile arc assemblage rocks which same rock assemblages are known to host all of the known VMS mines in the Flin Flon and Snow Lake camps.
Preliminary examination of the raw geophysical ZTEM data on all properties is in progress. Initial results from the Squall and Tramping properties have identified prospective areas where ZTEM anomalies are associated with the favourable juvenile arc rock package. Geophysical data from the remaining properties are currently being processed. All anomalies will be prioritized based on their conductivity, resistivity, size and proximity to juvenile rocks. Once completed, Rockcliff will report the results and identify the high priority anomalies to drill test.
The ZTEM survey has the capability of locating conductive bodies down to depths of over a kilometre. The purpose of the survey was to integrate Rockcliff's existing VTEM database (13,000 line km) on the project with Geotech's state of the art ZTEM geophysical technology. The combined surveys allow for complete geophysical coverage and locate conductors buried from near surface to depths in excess of a kilometre. The survey utilized Geotech's ZTEM or Z-Axis Tipper Electromagnetic system, an innovative airborne EM system which uses the natural or passive fields of the Earth as the source of transmitted energy. Key features of the technology include:
- Superior Exploration Depth - Over 1500 metres in the Athabasca Basin.
- Low Frequency for penetration through conductive cover.
- High Spatial Resolution - 8 to 10 metres.
- Excellent resistivity discrimination and detection of weak anomalies
due to the nature of the natural EM fields.
- Measures the in-phase component - critical for the exploration of
- A highly sensitive magnetometer for mapping geological structure and
