Cartier Iron Corporation (CSE:CFE) (“Cartier Iron” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the results of its Controlled Source Audio Magneto-Telluric (“CSAMT”) in the Central Anomaly – Big Easy Showing Area on its 100% owned Big Easy Gold-Silver Project near Clarenville in eastern Newfoundland.
Cartier Iron Corporation (CSE:CFE) (“Cartier Iron” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has commenced the planned 10,000m diamond drill program at the Big Easy low sulphidation gold-silver project near Clarenville, Newfoundland. Drilling will initially focus on the Central Anomaly where previous drilling (see press release June 8, 2021) confirmed an extensive zone of silicification up to 200m wide with epithermal gold-silver mineralization. This additional drilling will more fully explore this very prospective zone which extends for at least 600m along strike. Table 1 lists initial planned drill holes and Figure 1 shows the location of the chargeability anomaly with planned drill holes. Drilling is also planned to test the chargeability/resistivity anomalies identified on the Sleigh Pond grid in the southern part of the property as outlined in the press release of June 8, 2021, and as shown in Figure 1. The Sleigh Pond program will likely take place in winter 2022. The drilling program is being managed by Mercator Geological Services with drilling being carried out by Logan Drilling Group.
Cartier Iron Corporation (CSE: CFE) (“Cartier Iron”), is pleased to announce that it is proceeding with a non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement”) of up to 2,500,000 flow-through shares of Cartier Iron at a price of $0.14 per share (“F-T Shares”) for proceeds of up to $350,000. Each F-T Share will be issued on a “flow-through” basis under the Income Tax Act (Canada). Insiders of Cartier Iron may participate in the Private Placement.
- 2,000m diamond drilling program planned to start in mid-January 2021 to test Central Anomaly and new IP targets.
- Two major magnetic trends outlined, West and East Trends, 19km and 20km long, respectively, each with a number of elongated magnetic highs that likely reflect intrusive rocks not previously recognized in this area.
TORONTO, Dec. 02, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Cartier Iron Corporation (CSE: CFE) (“Cartier Iron”), is pleased to report on results of geophysical surveys completed during October, 2020, at its Big Easy Gold project located on the Burin Peninsula in eastern Newfoundland. A helicopter-borne magnetic survey was flown for New Sense Geophysics Ltd. of Markham, Ontario by Newfoundland Helicopters over the southern half of the property to provide high-resolution magnetic coverage over the complete Big Easy property. The northern half of the property was flown by previous operators and is available in the NL Department of Natural Resources assessment files. The program also included induced polarization/resistivity (IP/Res) surveys on a grid located 2.5km south of the ET showing. This program was designed to follow-up the 20km long target zone for epithermal gold-silver mineralization outlined by the summer 2020 program of geological mapping, soil sampling and prospecting (see press release September 29, 2020) to outline potential drill targets.
Cartier Iron Corporation (CSE: CFE) (“Cartier Iron”), is pleased to report on results of a geological mapping, soil sampling and prospecting program completed during July, 2020, at its Big Easy Gold project (see press release July 8, 2020), located on the Burin Peninsula in eastern Newfoundland. The program focused on follow-up of major target areas outlined by magnetic and induced polarization/resistivity (IP/Res) surveys as well as exploration of the potential southern extension of these chargeability zones which have had only limited previous work.
Cartier Iron Corporation (CSE: CFE) (“Cartier Iron”) is pleased to announce that it has completed a previously announced non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement”) of 2,000,000 flow-through units of Cartier Iron at a price of $0.10 per unit (“F-T Units”) for proceeds of $200,000 and 5,000,000 non-flow-through units of Cartier Iron at a price of $0.08 per unit (“Units”) for additional proceeds of $400,000.
Cartier Iron Corporation (CSE: CFE) (“Cartier Iron” or the “Company”), is pleased to announce that the Company has retained New Valley Drilling to complete up to 2,000 metres of diamond drilling to test major targets on its Big Easy Gold property, located approximately 20 km northwest of the town of Clarenville, about 200km northwest of St. John’s, Newfoundland (Figure 1). Big Easy hosts an extensive, but little explored, low sulphidation epithermal gold system that occurs on a prominent boundary between volcanic and sedimentary rocks in the Neoproterozoic Avalon Zone. The Induced Polarization/Resitivity (IP/Res) survey completed in winter 2018 outlined a four kilometre long chargeability anomaly extending from the Big Easy to the ET showings. This anomaly is open along strike to the north and south (see press release May 1, 2018 and Figure 2).
Cartier Iron Corporation (CSE:CFE) (“Cartier Iron”), is pleased to announce the completion of line cutting and commencement of the 56-line kilometre Induced Polarization/Resistivity Survey (“IP/Res”) at the Big Easy Property (“Big Easy”) in Newfoundland. Big Easy is located approximately 20 kilometres (km) northwest of the town of Clarenville, about 200km northwest of St. John’s. MES Geophysics of St. John’s, contractor for the IP/Res survey, has completed the detailed lines with 25m dipole spacing over the original Big Easy showing area and is progressing well on the remainder of the grid which is being covered by 50m dipole spacing. The IP/Res survey is designed to test the full 3.5 km strike length between the Big Easy and the ET showings to a depth of 200m to explore the full extent of the epithermal system. Historical diamond drill holes open to depth near the Big Easy showing offer the possibility that a downhole IP/Res survey may be used at a later date to extend the search volume even deeper.
