Delta Resources Outlines New Conductors on Potential VMS Horizon at Delta-2 Property; Chibougamau, Quebec:
- VTEM results suggests high potential for gold rich VMS deposits
- Company Acquires More Strategic Ground at Delta-2, and
- Appoints Frank Candido as its VP Corporate Communications
February 18, 2020 / Kingston, ON /Accesswire. Delta Resources Limited (“Delta” or the “Company”) (DLTA:TSX-V) is pleased to announce that it has completed its helicopter-borne VTEM survey over the north-east portion of the Delta-2 property in Chibougamau, Quebec, where the Company sees a high potential for gold-rich volcanogenic massive sulphide (“VMS”) deposits. Approximately 17 kilometres of this horizon is covered by the Delta-2 Property.
The new VTEM survey, carried-out by Geotech Limited outlines a number of new conductors on the property with several conductors located at or near a geological contact that is known to be favourable for the occurrence of VMS deposits. Furthermore, several of these new conductors occur in the vicinity where the Delta exploration team outlined a significant area (up to 1km long by 200m in width) of garnet-chlorite alteration in the footwall of the favourable contact in the fall of 2019. This type of garnet-chlorite alteration is commonly seen in the feeder zones below many VMS deposits.
