VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 28, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pistol Bay Mining Inc. (TSX-V:PST) (Frankfurt:OQS2) (OTC/Pink Sheet:SLTFF) (“Pistol Bay” or the “Company’) is pleased to give an update on Confederation Lake in Ontario.
Charles Desjardins, President and CEO of Pistol Bay, is pleased to inform shareholders that the company has retained Dahrouge Geological Consulting Ltd. to undertake a comprehensive review of current and historic exploration work of the Confederation Lake Project. Sustained exploration for base metals began at the Confederation Lake Project during the 1950s with over 560 drill holes completed to date, leading to the discovery of numerous VMS occurrences. A thorough review of current and historic exploration will provide for valuable guidance in expanding upon known mineralization, and testing both new and under explored targets.
This work will include:
- Compilation of historical drilling,
- Integration of current and historic drill results with the recently completed VTEM survey,
- Identify relevant geological and geophysical characteristics of the known mineralization to guide future exploration and “discovery” oriented work,
- Compilation of the drilling near known deposits (along-strike or at-depth) to assist in identifying new zones or extensions to known mineralization. This work could have potential to add tonnage of the Arrow Zone or other smaller, high-grade zones like Dixie-3, Dixie-10, Copperlode (Fredart) or Diamond-Willow, and
- Sub-contract and manage a detailed interpretation of the airborne EM. Work would be to create 3D “plate” models of the EM to integrate with the 3D drill hole data.
