Entourage Metals Ltd. (TSXV:EMT) announced that the Phase 1 diamond drill program has began at its Rous Lake gold property in the Hemlo Region of NW Ontario.
As quoted in the press release:
This first phase of drilling will be a minimum of 2,000 meters based on geological, geophysical, and geochemical targets. Rous Lake is the third target in the Hemlo region being drill tested by Entourage in 2011.
To define drill targets on this property where glacial overburden extends to depths of up to 100m, Entourage has completed Gravimetric and Soil Gas Hydrocarbon (SGH) Surveys. These surveys collected a total of 467 gravity stations, and 650 SGH samples over a series of traverses covering a strike length of 5 km over the western extension of the deformation zone which hosts Barrick’s Hemlo gold deposit.
The interpretation of the gravity results in conjunction with the government airborne magnetics has identified various density contrasts that possibly represent permissive structural breaks that might host gold mineralization. Along these structural breaks excellent SGH anomalies have been identified. This data coupled with previous work in the area has enabled Entourage to prioritize several drill targets.
