VANCOUVER, Canada / ACCESSWIRE / March 17, 2014 / Viscount Mining Corp. (TSX VENTURE: VML) ("Viscount" or "the Company"), a mineral resource development company with a portfolio of past producing silver mines and exploration properties on its wholly-owned land in Nevada, is pleased to announce that it has commissioned the development of a 3D GIS model of its flagship project in the Cherry Creek Mining District located in eastern Nevada.
Oliver GeoServices LLC of Colleyville, Texas, has been selected to generate the model with the goal to both inventory past production and to gain a more detailed understanding of the 3D geometry of the various vein systems. The model will be constructed on a digital elevation base and will include all existing land status, geology, geochemistry, geophysics and drill data sets. The model will act as a work in progress with all newly discovered historical data or sample results updated as received in order to increase the overall knowledge base of the prospect.
The Cherry Creek Mining District is located in White Pine County approximately 90km north of Ely, NV. The district has a long history of gold, silver and tungsten production from high-grade vein and replacement deposits. Of significance, the potential exists for Long Canyon-style disseminated gold mineralization on ground controlled by the Company.
"The chief utility of the 3D model is its ability to guide future drilling," states Kaare Foy, Chairman. "The Cherry Creek District is a target-rich environment that would greatly benefit from modern exploration technologies. Previous work has demonstrated the potential at the Exchequer, Star, Ticup and Motherlode vein systems. A 3D model of the district will provide immediate and tangible benefits to our development program."
Technical aspects of this news release have been reviewed and approved by Dr. Howard Lahti, a qualified person within the meaning of National Instrument 43-101.
