Rockland Minerals Corp. (TSXV:RL) initiated 3D geophysical modeling of the Schefferville Gold property, which will help the Company select deeper drill targets within broad areas already defined by surface prospecting.
As quoted in the press release:
The Schefferville gold property covers highly prospective Arséne–Baleine Rouge and Rusty Acres originally discovered in the mid-1980′s by Québec government geologists containing arsenopyrite-bearing Archean iron formations which are strongly metamorphosed to the granulite facies. To date, Rockland has encountered the presence of broad zones of near-surface disseminated gold mineralization with several high grade “sweet-spots” in 2010 drilling. Surface sampling in the Rusty Acres area, which has never been drilled before, returned multiple results in the 4-12 grams-per-tonne gold range, with a high grade sample of 171 g/t Au, These new, higher grade gold values found on the surface in the Rusty Acres zone indicate that the Schefferville Gold Project has potential for the discovery of significant new mineralized zones in addition to those found by drilling so far.
Rockland Minerals Corp. Director, George F. Sanders, said:
We’ve been looking forward to a more detailed analysis of the data obtained by flying the heli-mag survey at 50-metre spaced lines and staying as close to the ground as practical. This methodology actually produces better data than ground surveys due to the high magnetic susceptibilities of our target formations.
