EDMONTON, ALBERTA – Green River Gold Corp. (the “Company” or “Green River”) is pleased to announce that PKMB Consultants (“PKMB”) has completed further processing and interpretations of the airborne magnetic survey data, announced on June 1st , 2021 (the “Survey”), over the Company’s 100% owned Fontaine Lode Gold and Quesnel Nickel properties in Central British Columbia (the “Properties”). The survey has outlined distinctive magnetic features that will assist the exploration targeting in the upcoming programs.
The Survey identified magnetic high anomalies in the Slide Mountain Terrane Ultramafic Complex and distinctive fault contact boundaries, which are prospective for hydrothermal systems and mineral occurrences. The survey also identified magnetic anomalies in the Barkerville Terrane, which will be investigated by a bedrock mapping and sampling program.
Perry Little, President and CEO states, “Knowing that the Properties overlay the Eureka Fault and Keithley Thrust we were anticipating magnetic anomalies in the areas of contact. The initial interpretation of the results would suggest that we have located the anomalies we were anticipating. On the Quesnel Nickel project, approximately 4 km North West of the Fontaine Lode Gold Project, we were pleasantly surprised by the size of the magnetic anomaly discovered and we will be following up with a Time-Domain Electromagnetic (“TDEM”) survey shortly to define potential drill targets.”
Green River’s Mine Manager, Kyle Townsend, explains, “We want to take a data driven approach for our exploration programs. Now that we have completed the airborne magnetic survey and initial interpretation of the results, we have increased confidence in our proposed exploration targets. We are very excited to receive further interpretation of the data gathered so far and continue with exploration later this year. Based on interpretation of the magnetic survey data, we are looking at preforming bedrock mapping and strategic follow-up geophysical surveys in areas of interest on the Fontaine Lode Gold Property. As well, we intend to complete a TDEM survey over a significant magnetic anomaly discovered on the Quesnel Nickel Property to determine depth, azimuth, and dip of any conductive material. This will allow us to create final drillhole locations and pierce point estimates for a possible upcoming drilling program.”
The Company’s Cariboo hard rock projects, the Quesnel Nickel Project and the Fontaine Lode Gold Project, are located in Central British Columbia, approximately 50 kilometres East of the City of Quesnel. Both properties are easily accessible from the well maintained 1300 (Swift River) Forest Service Road which is currently undergoing a major realignment and upgrades. The properties are located approximately 20 kilometres along the 1300 Forest Service Road which runs directly off the paved Barkerville Highway (Highway 26).
Quesnel is home to an airport with daily flights to Vancouver and Edmonton, a Railway and Highway 97. Green River’s neighbour to the North, Osisko Development Corp. has proposed a high voltage power line to service their Cariboo Gold Project. The proposed line would run within 15 kilometres of the Quesnel Nickel Project. Quesnel and the surrounding area are home to a skilled workforce in close proximity to our projects which greatly reduces the Company’s cost of exploration. Green River’s shop and retail facility in Quesnel and full-time employees provide added efficiency in staging our exploration activities.
