OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 4, 2016) - Everton Resources Inc. ("Everton" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:EVR) is pleased to report on the completed detailed helicopter-borne magnetic and Time Domain electromagnetic survey of its 100% owned Detour Lake Gold Project, Quebec (NR August 30, 2016). The detailed interpretation of the geophysical data has generated 31 high priority gold targets.
The Detour Gold Quebec project area is a highly prospective area for gold deposits, located between two mines in production, the Detour Lake mine and the Casa Berardi mine. Everton's Detour Lake Gold Project claims were acquired using Diagnos Inc.'s resource detection system (CARDS) to target the gold potential in the Detour Lake area of Quebec.
Historically the main zone of the Detour Lake gold deposit was reportedly discovered by following a 2 km long Input EM anomaly with strong magnetic coincidence. Accordingly Everton's targeting approach will be the investigation of EM conductors with strong magnetic coincidence that have not been yet drill tested. Everton's detailed helicopter-borne magnetic and Time Domain electromagnetic survey has identified 31 prospective targets with a good correlation between magnetic and conductive lineaments for follow-up.
Everton's claim group covers 74.37 square kilometres, and requires effective intelligent prioritization of prospective areas to focus exploration efforts. Everton will compile all available geological and geochemical data for the Detour Project Area prioritizing each of the prospective areas outlined. Subject to prioritization, these areas will be investigated with basic ground prospective methods, followed up by soil geochemistry. Upon the subsequent review of all data, areas will be prioritized for additional further detailed work such as ground resistivity/IP or EM techniques. The rigorous detailed geophysics will be undertaken to maximize the success of future drilling.
Andre Audet, Chairman and CEO of Everton Resources, indicates, "I am very pleased to have been able to jumpstart Everton to being a major active player in the Detour Lake area. We have achieved this through the intelligent acquisition of claims using Diagnos Inc. CARDS system and, to further advance this project to the drilling stage, we are preparing to follow up on high quality targets similar that which lead to the discovery of the Detour Mine."
