Discovery Ventures Inc. Commences Aerial LiDAR and Digital Photography at Willa

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Sept. 2, 2014) - Discovery Ventures Inc. (TSX VENTURE:DVN) (FRANKFURT:ODV) ("Discovery" or the "Company"), is pleased to announce that it has recently engaged Eagle Mapping Ltd. to commence an aerial LiDAR survey over the Willa Property. The survey, and accompanying digital photography will be used to create accurate maps for the roughly 12.5-sq km project area. The site is characterized by steep treed topography and is best surveyed using this technique.

LiDAR Survey

Aerial LiDAR systems provide very accurate measurements of topography and with ground-station calibration, allow for detailed 'bare-earth' topographic maps to be generated of an area. In addition to providing mapping to 1-m contouring, the survey will also provide for the processing of an accurate digital terrain model (DTM). The DTM will complement and improve the digital mine model by allowing for direct reconciliation of drill hole collars, thereby improving the accuracy of the drill dataset within the model.

Digital Photography

Digital colour aerial photography will also be captured during the flights providing orthophotos of the property with 20-cm resolution. The orthophotos can be used to identify geological hazards and other structures, and will allow for detailed design of potential access and services to the site.
