Versatile Time-Domain Electromagnetic (VTEM™ Plus) geophysical system will explore mineral potential over 944 line-kms beginning in February.
MLK Gold Ltd. ( CSE: MLK ) ( or the " Company "), a growth-oriented gold exploration company headquartered in Windsor, Nova Scotia is pleased to announce that it will conduct a Versatile Time-Domain Electromagnetic (VTEM™ Plus) geophysical survey on its flagship Caledonia Brook gold property with the work set to begin in February. Located in the south-west region of Grand Falls Windsor Newfoundland the Caledonia Brook property is situated west of New Found Gold Corporation's high-grade gold discovery and shares geological similarities to Marathon Gold's (4 million ounces) Valentine and Victoria Lake Grand Falls Shear Zone System.
Based in Aurora, Ontario , Geotech Ltd. specializes in airborne geophysical survey mapping, data processing and data interpretation. Their industry leading VTEM™ Plus technology has a radar altimeter accuracy of approximately 1 meter and unparalleled depth of penetration and high-resolution imaging which allows for better characterization of mineral and rock density. The contract with MLK Gold will cover 944 line-kms across the Caledonia Brook gold property which consists of 284 claims covering 7,100 hectares.
Through recent compilation, structural interpretation, and exploration at the Caledonia Brook gold property, the Company has named 10 target zones and will use the survey data to identify new zones on the shear zones and analyze initial field data showing visible gold in narrow quartz veins assaying 2.85 g/t Au. Further, the Intrusive Related Gold System (IRGS) crossing Central Newfoundland is host to dominantly mesothermal lode gold deposits. The Caledonia Brook mineralization is hosted in quartz monzonite and gabbro/diorite of the Crippleback Lake Pluton, yielding a U/Pb zircon age of 565+4/-3Ma identical to Marathon Gold's Valentine Lake plutonic suite.
MLK President & CEO, Paul Smith , stated: " The Caledonia and Crippleback Shear Zones show highly altered rocks, implying large fluid systems for gold emplacement and deposition. With gold discoveries in the area along the same shear zone system as Caledonia and Crippleback, we believe the VTEM™ Plus geological survey, once integrated with earlier geological data, is a critical step in providing the essential geophysical data we need to expand our 2022 exploration program. Recent surveys flown with VTEM™ Plus have produced superior results over the same test areas using electromagnetic (EM) surveys, so we are eager to begin the program and see what our investment yields. The MLK geology team is excited about this next step."
Results from earlier completed glacial till sampling survey are still pending but expected soon.
