Boreal Metals has announced the commencement of field work and exploration programs at its Tynset polymetallic VMS project in Norway.
Boreal Metals (TSXV:BMX) has announced the commencement of field work and exploration programs at its Tynset polymetallic VMS project in Norway, located in the historic Røros District, Norway’s most prolific base metal district.
According to Boreal the initial focus of sampling, mapping and geophysical programs at Tynset will be in the vicinities of the historic Vingelen, Fådalsgruven and Sivilldalen mines which produced copper.
Boreal said that there is significant zinc mineralization present in all the mentioned mining areas.
As quoted in the press release:
Surface sampling will be accompanied by high resolution, ground-based magnetic geophysical surveys and geologic mapping. Tynset’s massive sulfide mineralization has a strong magnetic response due to high concentrations of pyrrhotite, a magnetic ferrous sulfide mineral associated with the polymetallic sulfide mineralization. These zones are readily mappable by magnetic surveys. Depending on results, Boreal will also consider electromagnetic surveys as follow ups to the upcoming field programs.
The goal of the programs is to further refine drill site selections, in anticipation of future drilling in 2018 or 2019, and to identify additional zones of copper and zinc mineralization in the area.
