Gowest Gold Ltd. is pleased to announce that its recent Induced Polarization program has helped to reveal a distinct signature for the mineralization within its Bradshaw Gold Deposit, part of the Company's North Timmins Gold Project.
The Company can now use this knowledge to help identify the best new exploration targets in the immediate surrounding area as well as along untested portions of Gowest's 20-kilometre segment of the prolific Pipestone Fault structure, which hosts Bradshaw and several other mineral deposits.
IP Program & the Pipestone Structure
In March 2016, the Company completed a deep-looking, IP survey with Insight Geophysics along the Pipestone structure. This structure is nearly completely covered by sand, gravel and overburden which, until now, has left this area largely under explored. The deep IP program looks beneath the mask of overburden to map the chargeability and resistivity of the underlying rocks. Upon commissioning of the survey, the Company completed a test block over the Bradshaw deposit to identify the geophysical signature of the deposit. The deposit was traced over the entire survey block as a resistivity high, due to the increased quartz veining, and a relative chargeability high due to the increased sulphides in proximity to the gold resources at Bradshaw (see Bradshaw & Wark 1 IP Map).
In addition to the test block at Bradshaw, the Company completed an initial exploration IP grid at the Wark 1 property (see Bradshaw & Wark 1 IP Map), 5 kms southwest of Bradshaw and along the southern contact of the Pipestone structure, host of extensive gold mineralization. Again, encouraging results from this work will be most useful in preparing for systematic field exploration programs both at Wark 1 and along the entire Pipestone structure.
Greg Romain noted, "We are very pleased with the outcome of our first ever IP program on the Pipestone structure. Our Bradshaw deposit popped out and was highlighted in the survey so that we now have a defined geophysical fingerprint to guide us in our search for additional gold resources along this extensive trend of our NTGP property." Mr. Romain added, "The Company will also be providing the market with an update on Bradshaw, our continued main focus, soon."
