Midland Exploration starts drilling programme on Jouvex project

Midland Exploration has started a drilling programme totalling more than 1,800m to test new geophysical targets identified on the Jouvex project in Canada.

Midland Exploration has started a drilling programme totalling more than 1,800m to test new geophysical targets identified on the Jouvex project in Canada.

The programme to be carried out on Jouvex comprises 268 claims, covering a total of 150km² and is slated to begin in the second week of this month.

The property covers the extension over a strike length of more than 6km of the Casa Berardi-Douay-Cameron deformation zone, which hosts the Casa Berardi mine.

“The surveys were aimed at targeting conductors and historic gold occurrences in volcanic rocks of the Orvilliers-Desmazures Group.”

Last year, Midland completed two OreVision IP surveys totalling 35km in the north-west and north-east parts of the Jouvex property.

The surveys were aimed at targeting conductors and historic gold occurrences in volcanic rocks of the Orvilliers-Desmazures Group.

On the north-east grid, the first drill hole will test at a vertical depth of 400m, the extension of a mineralised zone intersected in the historic KMA-88-71 drill hole.

This drill hole will also test a chargeability IP anomaly of moderate intensity.

Another three drill holes will test three different IP anomalies characterised by moderate to strong chargeability combined with high resistivity.

The company never drill-tested these three IP anomalies.

Jouvex is a 50/50 joint venture project with Soquem, a subsidiary of Ressources Québec.

Having participated in more than 350 exploration projects, Soquem also contributed to major discoveries of gold, diamonds, lithium and other mineral commodities.

Midland makes the discovery of new deposits of gold, platinum group elements and base metals by targeting the mineral potential of Quebec.
