Canstar Completes Vtem Airborne Geophysical Survey Over Conception Bay South (CBS) Project in Newfoundland; Mary March Adjudication Board Hearing Re-Set for November 24th
TORONTO, ONTARIO - (Marketwire - Oct. 14, 2008) - The directors of Canstar Resources (TSX VENTURE:ROX) are pleased to announce that the company has completed a VTEM airborne magnetic/electromagnetic survey over its recently acquired Conception Bay South (CBS) properties on the Avalon Peninsula, Province of Newfoundland and Labrador. This is the first airborne Electromagnetic survey recorded over the area.
The survey was successful in delineating at least 25 electromagnetic conductors considered to have potential bedrock sources. An additional 27 mineral claims were recorded to cover conductors falling outside of the original property boundaries, bringing Canstar’s total land package to 45 square kilometres. The survey was contracted to Geotech Ltd, and comprises 1,181 line kilometers covering a 25 kilometre strike length of the volcanic belt.
As previously reported the properties cover a belt of volcanic rocks of Proterozoic age which are known to host Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide (VMS) type mineralization containing economically significant values in copper, zinc, lead, gold and silver. Grab samples from one showing assayed 8.9 % zinc, 5.2 % lead, 0.8 % copper, 0.3 g/t gold and 1.4 g/t silver.
A program consisting of ground location of the conductors and geological mapping is currently being initiated and will be followed by diamond drilling of selected priority targets, to be completed before year end.
