The Company completes a magnetic survey to further characterize the porphyry-style geothermal alteration system within the New Enterprise Project
RENO, NV / ACCESSWIRE / November 17, 2020 / Pershing Resources Company, Inc., (OTC PINK:PSGR), a precious and base metals exploration and development company, today announced the completion of the field portion of a high-resolution, tri-axial aeromagnetic helicopter mounted airborne survey over the New Enterprise Project and surrounding area. It is anticipated that the interpretation of the results will further characterize the relatively large porphyry-style geothermal alteration system recently outlined by a hyperspectral survey in association with known copper (Cu), gold (Au) and molybdenum (Mo) mineral occurrences, (see Pershing Resources press release dated March 19, 2020, https://www.pershingpm.com/news-media/press-releases?year=2020).
The field portion of the aeromagnetic heliborne survey was performed by Scott Hogg & Associates Ltd. of Toronto, Canada. Southwest Heli-Services, (http://www.southwesthelicopters.com/), of Mesa, Arizona was engaged to provide the aircraft and piloting required to execute the aeromagnetic heliborne survey.
The survey included approximately 1,400 line kilometers at 300 meters spaced reconnaissance level flight-line coverage over the project area and, in selected areas, 75 and 150 meter spaced flight lines to provide detail coverage over predetermined areas of interest. The acquired geophysical dataset will be processed and modelled using state-of-the-art, proprietary software technology to determine whether the magnetic data supports and further assists in the characterization of the target porphyry-style geothermal alteration system. If a correlation is identified, follow-up field mapping and sampling will be completed to determine the relationship of the identified magnetic features to known bedrock occurrences of Cu, Au, and Mo mineralization. It is anticipated that the magnetic survey results will help characterize both the lithocap targets (mineral occurrences within the lithological cap to the suspected porphyry) as well as any other near surface porphyry targets within the New Enterprise Project.
Completion of the aeromagnetic survey followed strict state, federal and international border crossing COVID-19 social distancing precautions including, without limitation, self-isolation and quarantine requirements. SH&A field personnel have returned home and are currently in a 14 quarantine as required by Canadian federal guidance.
