Rockcliff Commences Third Phase VTEM Airborne Survey on its Snow Lake VMS Project, Manitoba.admin
Rockcliff Resources Inc. announce that Geotech Ltd. of Aurora, Ontario has commenced a 926 line kilometre airborne survey on the Company’s Snow Lake VMS Project located in central Manitoba. The VTEM survey will focus on additional areas not covered in the Company’s previous surveys and on areas where additional geophysical detail is warranted. Once completed, a total of 13,042 line kilometres of VTEM surveys will have been flown on the project. The project is located within the prolific Flin Flon greenstone belt, the largest Paleoproterozoic VMS district in the world.
The survey will utilize Geotech’s versatile time-domain electromagnetic (VTEM) and high sensitivity, cesium vapour magnetometer systems over the project area. The VTEM system has excellent depth penetration and high spatial resolution capabilities along with superior resistivity discrimination for detection of weaker anomalies. The survey is expected to be completed by the end of October.
The purpose of the survey is to continue to provide Rockcliff’s Snow Lake VMS Project with modern, state of the art geophysical technology that has a proven track record of mineral discovery. All anomalies identified in the survey will be prioritized based on their conductivity and proximity to juvenile arc rocks. All known VMS mines within the belt are hosted in juvenile arc rocks of the Flin Flon greenstone belt.
Rockcliff Resources Inc. is a Canadian resource exploration company focused on the Snow Lake VMS Project located in central Manitoba. The project totals in excess of 1,800 km(2) and is located within the prolific Flin Flon greenstone belt. The project presently includes five historical VMS deposits (Lon, Rail, Reed, Kof, Sylvia) and numerous additional areas with potential for VMS mineralization. Rockcliff also controls the Shihan VMS Project located in Northern Ontario.
