TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / July 13, 2020 / Murchison Minerals Ltd. ("Murchison" or the "Company") (TSXV:MUR) is pleased to announce the commencement of its summer exploration program at the Brabant Lake project located in Saskatchewan, Canada. The program will focus on prospecting newly identified airborne electromagnetic (EM) anomalies from the most recent 2020 winter VTEM geophysical survey.
Much of the newly identified conductors are in the south of the project area on the claims acquired in February 2020 and are on strike with the Brabant-McKenzie VMS Deposit. Field crews will be utilizing GDD Instrumentation Inc.'s "Beep Mat" technology to locate exposed or shallowly buried conductors on surface. This program is similar to the prospecting conducted by Murchison during the summer of 2019, which successfully located multiple new mineralized showings.
The program will also focus on prospecting multiple newly identified conductors east of the new copper-zinc-silver mineralization discovered at Main Lake at the end of the 2020 winter drilling program. This discovery is significant as it is the first substantial copper-zinc mineralization identified in drill core in the project area outside of the Brabant-McKenzie VMS Deposit. This area remains extremely prospective and the Company plans to continue advancing this new discovery.
About the Brabant Lake Project
The Brabant Lake project is located 175 kilometres northeast of La Ronge, Saskatchewan and approximately three kilometres from the community of Brabant Lake. The area is accessed year-round via provincial Highway 102 and is serviced by grid power. The project consists of one mining lease, which hosts the Brabant-McKenzie VMS deposit, and additional mineral claims totalling 565 square kilometres, which cover approximately 57 kilometres of strike length over favourable geological horizons, multiple known mineralized showings and identified geophysical conductors.
The foregoing scientific and technical disclosures have been reviewed by John Shmyr, P. Geo., and Andrew Masurat, P. Geo., qualified persons as defined by National Instrument 43-101. Mr. Shmyr and Mr. Masurat are independent consultants to Murchison and the Brabant Lake project.
