Reconnaissance Ground Work
The recce crew has now completed their 3 week field program on the Justin-VF properties. The last week was spent infill mapping, prospecting, and soil sampling on the Justin property. A total of 52 rock samples, 345 soil samples, were collected over 7 field days. Emphasis has been placed on compiling the final POW Zone detailed geology map. The overall understanding of the geology on the Justin property has been greatly improved by this exercise, and will be a key component in guiding future exploration.
Aurora Geosciences arrived in camp on Tuesday July 31st to complete 28.5 line kilometres of survey on the Justin property to infill the area in between the existing Justin and VF magnetic surveys. A post-field report summarizing the ground magnetic survey will be received by the Company within 14 days.
