TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Aug. 14, 2014) - Canstar Resources (Canstar) (TSX VENTURE:ROX) is pleased to announce the commencement of a summer exploration drilling program. The program follows up a series of geophysical programs aimed at providing substantive exploration targets. Five holes have been designed to test two borehole electromagnetic (BHEM) and several induced polarization (IP) anomalies (see press release dated June 25, 2014). These targets coincide with areas where mineralization is known to occur on the property but has never been detected using modern geophysical methods. The two key areas of exploration on the property will be the Mary March Zone, which represents the discovery area on the property, and the Nancy April Zone which occurs further to the southwest.
Mary March Zone
Results from Canstar's Fall 2013 drilling program confirmed the continuity of massive sulphides at the Mary March Zone both along strike and at depth. BHEM work that followed up this drilling indicate an offhole anomaly downdip and to the east of these intersections. Two targets will be tested from these data.
Nancy April Zone
A recent IP survey over the Nancy April area was designed to follow up on 2013 drilling results which confirmed the continuity of a previously recognized mineralized stockwork zone in the Nancy April area, located 500 meters southwest of the Mary March zone. Preliminary results from the IP survey indicate this area has continuous chargeability along strike in this vicinity with concomitant lower resistivity. This is consistent with a mineralized-type anomaly and is interpreted to represent the geophysical response from a stockwork zone. Stockwork zones are important indicators of VMS systems and represent the lower root zones of these types of orebodies through which metal-bearing fluids percolate to an upper main zone. Stockworks are also important sources of copper mineralization in many VMS systems.
The highest chargeability measurements are noted to occur in areas proximal the area targeted during the Fall 2013 drilling program and exhibit a notable increase in magnitude to the southwest. These targets are currently being modeled in 3D in order to refine how and where they occur down to depths of greater than 200 meters.
