PERTH, AUSTRALIA / ACCESSWIRE / June 3, 2021 / Tempus Resources Ltd (“Tempus” or the “Company“) (ASX:TMR)(TSX.V:TMRR) is pleased to announce that a regional airborne magnetic survey has been completed over the entire Elizabeth Gold Project area in Southern BC, Canada.
Tempus President & CEO, Jason Bahnsen, commented “We anticipate that the magnetic survey will generate additional targets over the 115 square kilometre project area as part of our regional exploration programme. In addition, drilling is about to commence on the South West vein with teams and equipment being mobilised to Elizabeth site this week.”
Tempus has completed a high-resolution aeromagnetic and radiometric survey over the entire 115 square km Elizabeth claim area as was previously discussed in an announcement dated April 12, 2021 (Blackdome-Elizabeth Project Update and Exploration Plan 2021).
Precision Geophysics was contracted and completed 97 lines for a total of 735 line-kilometres. Flight lines are oriented east-west with north-south tie lines and spaced 200 metres across the entire Elizabeth property (Figure 2). 100 metre line-spacing was flown over the known Elizabeth zone and eastern extension where the 2019 soils survey returned very encouraging anomalies in gold, and associated epithermal style elements (Silver, Arsenic, Antimony, Bismuth, and Mercury) (Announcement released January 8th, 2020).
The aeromagnetic survey will help in defining the granite type intrusion which is host to the high-grade quartz-gold epithermal veins. 2020 diamond drill in to the SW Vein at Elizabeth returned;
- EZ-20-06: 5.0m at 61.3g/t gold from 116.5m, including 1.5m at 186.0g/t gold from 118.0m
- EZ-20-10: 3.2m at 28.1g/t gold from 184.0m, including 0.5m at 178.0g/t gold from 184.5m
The aeromagnetic survey will also assist in identifying additional granitic intrusions, within the ultramafic country rocks of the Shulaps Mountain Range. The magnetic contrast between these two rock types is expected to provide additional exploration targets in the larger 115km2 Elizabeth Property.
Tempus technical staff will review data from the survey when it has been finalised by Precision Geophysics and assess regional exploration targets at that time.
