VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / October 26, 2020 / MGX Minerals Inc. ("MGX" or the "Company") (CSE:XMG / FKT:1MG / OTC PINK:MGXMF) has completed 75% of LiDAR mapping, accurate to 55-88mm, and magnetometer survey over a total target area of 9 square kilometers at the Heino Gold deposit, as well as East Ridge and Silver Queen occurrences. A weather window has opened for completion of the remaining portion of the heli-survey, which is expected to be completed today. The data will provide identification of surface mineralization, related structures, and existing infrastructure without interference from vegetation and will include a magnetometer survey. Data will provide a modern mapping basis for infrastructure planning and future exploration.

Recent Exploration

As announced July 24th, 2020, six 0.5kg to 1kg, samples were taken at the 2030 Portal of the Heino-Money Pit Zone at the Heino Gold Deposit during the SRK Consulting (Canada) Site Visit July 8th, 2020. Samples were shipped under direct chain of custody to ALS Canada Ltd. in Kamloops, British Columbia, crushed and pulverized, with further shipment to ALS Canada Ltd, North Vancouver, BC under custody of ALS Canada Ltd. The samples have undergone gold analysis by fire assay and gravimetric finish up to 6 ounces per tonne Au are reported. Previous silver, lead, and zinc assays from press release issued July 20 are included. Bulk Samples are of selected mineralized material and are not representative of the deposit as no mineral resource estimate at any level of confidence has been completed:
