Timmins, Ontario / TheNewswire / May 29, 2018 – Melkior Resources Inc. (“Melkior”) is releasing an apparent resistivity depth slice PDF package from the recently completed $275,000 (2,170-line kilometer) VTEM helicopter-borne magnetometer and EM survey on the Maseres Project. The two first maps below are provided for regional context.
Maseres Magnetic Survey overlain on Regional Magnetics.
Maseres VTEM Z dB/dt Channel 10, neighboring conductance related maps.
Maseres Resistivity Depth Imaging (RDI) Depth Slices (57.5 MB PDF file)
Geotech states, “Resistivity depth imaging (RDI) is a technique used to rapidly convert EM profile decay data into an equivalent resistivity versus depth cross-section…. RDIs provide reasonable indications of conductor relative to depth and vertical extent, as well as accurate 1D layered-earth apparent conductivity/resistivity structure across VTEM flight lines”.
The MKR_Maseres_RDI_Depth_Slices.pdf file allows the viewer to page down and sequentially view apparent resistivity depth slices of the entire Maseres Project the starting at 25m down to 700m depth. For a regional comparison the MKR_Maseres_TAU_Regional_2.pdf (above) provides a partial representation of:
MKR VTEM Z dB/dt Channel 10, Time Gate 0.055 ms (MKR_Maseres_25K_SFz10)
OSK VTEM Z dB/dt Channel 4, Time Gate 0.021 ms
BFD VTEM dB/dt Calculated Time Constant (Tau)
OBAN SKYTEM Conductance 204-234 meter depth slice
The next release (tomorrow) will present apparent resistivity cross sections, every 100 m, across the entire Maseres Project. The RDI cross sections have been packaged into a single PDF of about 327MB, functionality will depend on the readers internet speed. Interested parties are invited to follow the discussion, review the VTEM survey maps and formulate their own opinions. Additional background and regional context on the Maseres Project can be gained through a review of Maseres Project news releases.
Melkior is of the opinion the Maseres Project may be situated in one of the most prospective gold rich, Bousquet Type, VMS environments Canada has ever seen. The scale is highly unique. This robust 12 km conductive trend is linked into a very intriguing 4 km by 6 km concentric magnetic anomaly with an outer robust conductive ring anomaly. A-horizon soil analysis in 2017 over a portion of the EM trend returned up to 121 ppb Au; 59 ppm Ag; 93 ppm Cu; 78 ppm Zn; 30 ppm Pb (NR September 17, 2017). The reader is reminded that the Maseres land package is about 12 km by 20 km of contiguous sole ownership. The anomalous trends are centered within the Maseres Project.
Wade Kornik, P.Geo., has approved the information contained in this release. Mr. Kornik is the Exploration Manager of the Company and is Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.
