OceanaGold Starts CSAMT Comprehensive Geophysical Survey

American Pacific Mining Corp. takes great pleasure in announcing that OceanaGold US Holdings—joint venture collaborator at the Tuscarora Gold Project—has started a comprehensive geophysical survey called Controlled Source Audio-frequency Magnetotellurics (CSAMT).

The survey will be carried out by Zonge International, a famous geophysical services company based in Reno, Nevada USA.

This non-intrusive, low-impact CSAMT survey will highlight key target exploration zones, showing the electrically resistive and conductive areas throughout the entire Tuscarora project area. Layering this information with previously collected data will be essential in the design of the fast-approaching drill campaign that OceanaGold will conduct this summer.

CSAMT raw data will be processed and deciphered, and the results are expected to be out in early July.

The gravity survey that started in May has also been finished and data interpretation is underway.
