Timmins, Ontario. Melkior Resources Inc. (“Melkior”) is pleased to announce that it is in the process of mobilizing to conduct a geological investigation on the Maseres Project in the Urban-Barry Greenstone Belt, Quebec. The Maseres Project is located about 14 km southwest of the Osisko Black Dog Deposit. The Black Dog Project has been reported by Osisko to be a gold-silver-copper discovery in a volcanic sequence coincident with magnetic and electromagnetic anomalies and disseminated to semi-massive Au-Ag-Cu bearing sulfides. The Black Dog appears to be on the same magnetic trend as Bonterra Gladiator Project. One interpretation of magnetic geophysical data suggest that this magnetic trend is folded and continues through the Great Thunders Great Dane Project and Melkiors Maseres Project. Mineralized boulders have been historically identified co-incident with this formational conductor and reported to contain 11 ppm gold and 3% copper ( NR xxxx). Melkiors initial program will consist of prospecting and sampling on the Maseres Project over the metavolcanic sequence that hosts the formational conductor, south of the Great Thunder property boundary.
Melkior continues to be active in the Hemlo Area, two additional areas of claims have been staked with recordings pending. These claim groups are contiguous to Melkiors existing holdings, more information will be released on MNDN posting of the mineral claims. Melkior has also been active evaluating prospective property in the Hemlo area, site visits have been conducted and assays are pending. Additional information on changes to Melkior assets in the Hemlo area are forthcoming. Melkiors current claim group adjoins Canadian Orebodies Inc. and is 3km west of the claims held by Golden Peak Minerals Inc. The property is located approximately 15 km northeast of the Hemlo Gold Mine currently operated by Barrick Gold Corporation.
Melkiors Carscallen Project, Timmins, Ontario currently has an exploration permit pending with the Ministry of Northern Development and Mines. The Application for the Exploration Permit has been posted to the Environmental Registry. A drill contract for 2,700 m has already been awarded for the Carscallen Project, Melkior is fully funded to complete this drilling. On MNDN permit approval, the 2017 Exploration Plan will be implemented. The 2017 Exploration Plan is available on the Melkior website (http://www.melkior.com/wp-content/uploads/MKR-2017-Exploration-Plan.pdf).
Melkior is always searching for new opportunities and is working to enhance its claim inventory in Hemlo, Urban-Barry and in Timmins with the goal of increasing shareholder value.
Jim Deluce, CEO of Melkior has expressed, “We are very excited to implement a geological program on our Maseres Project. We hope to establish gold values within the formational conductor that Melkior interprets to extend up through the Great Thunder Property and possibly through to Osiskos Black Dog Deposit. We are actively advancing our Projects and we hope that our efforts enhance our shareholders value.”
