Imperial Mining Commences Detailed Geophysics, Reports on Summer Mapping over the Opawica Gold Project, Quebec

Imperial mining announces the start of detailed magnetic surveys over our Opawica Gold project. The work will aid in better characterizing the known gold-bearing structures on the property and in identifying zones of intense alteration along with the NE-striking Central Gold Zone structure. As you may recall, historical drilling from the area returned up to 6.9 g/t gold (Au) over 3.8 m and 87.7 g/t Au over 1.5 m. The Central Zone has never been drill-tested below the 125 m vertical level and is open along strike. All results from this program will be integrated into a 3D geological and geophysical model to optimize drill target identification for Winter 2020 diamond drilling.

 

I am also happy to report on geological mapping and geochemical sampling program was completed on the property this summer to better characterize known gold mineralized zones and to establish a structural model for the Central Zone. Zones of strong silica and carbonate alteration and wide NNE and NNW trending structures were encountered during this work. Grab sample values over these areas were found to be highly anomalous in gold, returning up to 550 ppb in silica-carbonate altered felsic to intermediate tuffs containing up to 1% finely disseminated pyrite.
