Talon Metals has found a highly conductive anomaly at its Tamarack project that could represent an extension of the massive sulphide unit.
Talon Metals (TSX:TLO,OTC Pink:TLOFF) has identified a highly conductive anomaly at its Tamarack nickel-copper-cobalt project using magnetic-metric resistivity (MMR) that could represent an extension of the massive sulphide unit (MSU).
As stated in the press release:
In the 2017-2018 winter drill season, an MMR survey was completed with transmitting electrodes placed in drill holes 08TK0074 to the north and 16TK0233A to the south. These electrodes energized the SMSU and MSU units and the resulting EM field was logged by receivers in drill holes 12TK0163 to the west and 14TK0210 to the east. The recorded vectors in drill hole 12TK0163 point towards the known mineralization as the source of the field while the recorded vectors in hole 14TK0210 point towards an area beyond the extent of the known MSU mineralization in the 138 zone. The newly modeled conductor is at the same elevation as the MSU (below the 138 Zone) indicating a potential extension to the east.
Brian Bengert, Talon Geophysicist and Consultant, commented:
“MMR should increase the effectiveness of our exploration by allowing us to detect this style of massive sulphide mineralization from much greater distances than what is currently possible using conventional Downhole Electromagnetic (DHEM) methods. We will, however, continue to use conventional DHEM methods as they compliment the MMR. In our ongoing exploration, MMR will be used to detect the sulphides, while DHEM will be used to help refine and delineate the geometry of the mineralization.”
