KINGSTON, ON / ACCESSWIRE / January 23, 2020 / Delta Resources Limited ("Delta") (TSXV:DLTA) is pleased to announce that it has contracted the services of Geotech Airborne Geophysical Surveys to carry out a 581 line-kilometre Helicopter Borne VTEM survey over part of its Delta-2 property in the Chibougamau area of Quebec.
The survey is expected to start during the fourth week of January 2020 and is designed to cover a stratigraphic horizon known to be favourable for the occurrence of Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide (VMS) deposits. Approximately 17 kilometres of this horizon is covered by the Delta-2 Property. In the fall of 2019, the Delta Exploration team outlined a significant area (200m x 400m) of garnet-chlorite alteration in the footwall of the favourable contact; alteration commonly seen in the feeder zones below many VMS deposits.
The objective of the geophysical survey is to outline any conductors that represent masses of sulphides. Anomalies outlined with this survey are expected to be followed up in the field starting in the spring of 2020.
Significant deposits and occurrences of VMS origin are located in this region, including the past producing LeMoine mine (757 585 t @ 9.52% Zn, 4.18% Cu, 4.56 g/t Au and 82.26 g/t Ag) located 1.7 kilometres north of the property boundary and the Delinel and Guillaume-Cartier prospects located approximately 1.5 kilometres southeast of the property boundary.
