Jaxon Minerals Commences Phase I Exploration at Flin Flon-Snow Lake deposit

Jaxon Minerals has begun the phase I exploration program at its three mineral claim blocks, optioned recently, in the Flin Flon-Snow Lake deposit, in Saskatchewan and Manitoba. With the help of VTEM-Mag helicopter aerial geophysical system, Geotech of Ontario commenced a calculated 1113 line-km survey.

This survey method has a track record in the area and has discovered VMS-style geophysical patterns having high conductance and a related magnetic response.

The company will survey the claim blocks, whose grid line spacings differ from 50 to 100 m. Aerial magnetic and EM surveys are being conducted over sections of the property. Jaxon had discovered magnetic trends and anomalous conductors in the metavolcanic rocks of the Amisk Group and but never drilled the area. Survey by Geotech has the capability for deep penetration in order to find conductors at depths more than 300 m, wherein the mag-gradiometer system with two magnetic sensors offers comprehensive and precise survey information.

The claim’s sellers have identified VMS-style copper-gold-silver-zinc deposit at the surface of the two claim blocks and Jaxon has anticipated that the survey can outline and direct the drill program to depth all along the surface trends. It has helped in definition of the target on the other parts of the three properties. Independent geophysical consultant of the company, Mr Bob Lo will observe the daily survey information and offer initial analysis. The company is expecting the survey to be done in a week by facilitating the target prioritization and permitting applications.
