Alto Ventures Ltd. is pleased to announce the commencement of a high-resolution airborne magnetometer survey to be flown over its GEFA claims located adjacent to the North Arrow Minerals Pikoo diamond discovery in north central Saskatchewan.
The survey will be flown at a 50m line spacing consisting of 3,370 line kilometers with completion in the next four to six weeks.
In September, 2014, Alto collected 325 till samples from the GEFA and Fisher diamond claims. All of the samples are being processed at the Saskatchewan Research Council in Saskatoon. Approximately three quarters of the samples have been visually processed for Kimberlite Indicator Minerals ("KIM"s) and once all samples are processed, selected grains will be forwarded for microprobe analyses. Complete results are expected in February, 2015.
Alto plans to use the aeromagnetic data in combination with the KIM results to design a 2015 sampling program to better define KIM trains and select drill targets.
