VANCOUVER, British Columbia – May 4th, 2023 – iMetal Resources, Inc. (TSX.V: IMR) (OTCQB: IMRFF) (FRANKFURT: A7V) (“iMetal” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce completion of a Digitally Enhanced Prospecting (DEP) survey at its 220-hectare Ghost Mountain property, 42 km NE of Kirkland Lake, an lying 5 km directly west of Agnico Eagle’s Holt and Holloway Mines and within 1 km of the Porcupine-Destor Fault Zone.
Saf Dhillon, Chief Executive Officer, stated: “Ghost Mountain lies near several active gold exploration and mining operations including Agnico Eagle’s Holt and Holloway Mines Property and McEwen Mining’s Black Fox Mine. The DEP survey is the next step in our staged exploration program to bring Ghost Mountain to the drilling stage.”
Waring Minerals Inc. completed the DEP program at Ghost Mountain. UAV LiDAR was flown in order to locate outcrops on the property for the purposes of sampling and mapping. The DEP results will be combined with the 2022 AeroVision® results to guide the next stage of exploration which will include defining drill targets. A number of priority target areas were identified and sampled.
The geology of Ghost Mountain can be divided into a south and north section. The north is underlain by mafic to ultramafic intrusive rocks of the Kidd-Munro Group, while the south of the property is underlain by a mixed group of felsic to mafic metavolcanic rocks and clastic metasedimentary rocks of the Destor Porcupine Complex. Both are important regional assemblages and host numerous world-class Gold and VMS deposits.
The Company completed an AeroVision® magnetic survey in 2022. The processing and interpretation of the survey data resulted in a detailed geo-structural map, numerous high-resolution magnetic maps, two 3D magnetic susceptibility models, and a predictive targeting map which provided three solid targets for potential gold mineralization.
