Eagle Plains Resources and its partners have completed the aerial geophysical survey conducted at the Kootenay area of British Columbia. The company flew 4,280 line-km over its different projects in the area.
The company conducted three individual types of surveys, including the ZTEM (electromagnetic), VTEM (electromagnetic) and an aerial gravity system. These surveys were mainly funded by third parties under different option contracts. Fugro Consultants and Geotech Airborne Geophysical Surveys were engaged to perform the surveys, completed in the fall of 2011. Condor Consulting of Colorado will conduct further geophysical work that includes processing, analytical and improved interpretive analysis.
Eagle Plains and its partners are performing an aerial geophysical survey and systematic exploration programs at the Belt-Purcell Supergroup rocks. The region has the Sullivan deposit, which produced ore of around 150,000,000 t including 8,000,000 t lead, 300,000,000 oz silver and 8,000,000 t zinc.
The company has intersected 8.13 g/t gold, 5.91% lead/zinc, 86.6 g/t silver over 7.1 m, 1.9 g/t gold, 21.5 g/t silver over 56.5 m, 12.8 g/t gold, 9.24% lead/zinc, 122.5 g/t silver over 2.0 m in the hole IR10-010.
Eagle Plains along with its partners will examine the geophysical information continually. It will incorporate the data with other information obtained in the region to help the upcoming exploration work.
