Cartier Resources Inc. ("Cartier") announces that a new innovation in geophysics, has mapped the Pusticamica deposit on the Benoist Property situated between the Bachelor and Langlois mines. The method (OreVision-IP) captures and processes four times more data while maintaining optimal resolution up to depths several times greater than conventional IP.
Cartier conducted one test line over the deposit using parameters that were calibrated for the characteristics of the targeted mineralization. The results confirm the survey can clearly detect the deposit at depths up to 450 meters from surface.
On section 250W where Cartier conducted the test-line, previous geophysics failed to detect the deposit due to the depth of the mineralization between 150 and 450 meters. Previous surveys, below the lake bottom clays of Lake Pusticamica could investigate down to depths of 50 to 90 meters. With OreVision-IP, the mineralization Cartier is looking for can now be explored to find new deposits between 50 and 450 meters within the favorable corridor 500 meters wide by 6.3 kilometers on the property.
"Having the ability to detect mineralization to these new depths could be a game changer for the Benoist project" commented Philippe Cloutier, President and CEO, adding "since this new method offers depth of investigation unparalleled by other technologies while keeping optimal resolution from surface to depth, it could help us find more mineralization faster for a reasonable investment".
