Canstar Resources Provides Exploration Update: Commences Ground Geophysics on Mary March Property
Toronto, Ontario - June 25, 2014. Canstar Resources Inc. (Canstar; TSX.V: ROX) is pleased to announce the commencement of its summer exploration program, beginning with a ground geophysical survey at its Mary March Property near Buchans Junction, Newfoundland. Canstar will be implementing a deep-penetrating induced polarization (or “IP”) geophysical survey in order to enable maximum depth visualization on the property, with focus on the wide mineralization encountered near the Nancy April Zone. This type of technology and depth penetration represents the most detailed and comprehensive survey of its kind to have ever been conducted on the property and utilizes state-of-the-art geophysical methods. The results of this survey will be used for target generation where any new targets will be drilled in the subsequent drilling program also anticipated in the coming months.
2014 Induced Polarization Survey
In contrast to previous geophysical methods utilized on the Mary March Property throughout its exploration history, the IP method is not hindered by potential poor conductivities. It is now well established that the prevalent mineralization at Mary March is very similar to that of the former producing Buchans Mine, which is that of a zinc-rich mineralization with poor electro-conductive properties; the Buchans Mine was one of Canada’s all-time highest grade VMS ore producing 16.2 million tonnes averaging 14.50% Zn, 7.56% Pb, 1.33% Cu, 126 grams per tonne (g/t) Ag and 1.37 g/t Au between 1928 and 1984. By utilizing an IP geophysical method, Canstar hopes to detect these otherwise difficult-to-find mineralized areas where we understand there to be the highest potential for mineralization based on geology and previous drilling. The technology for IP geophysical methods has advanced in the last decade such that detection capabilities are now common to vertical depths in excess of 300 meters. Such advancements will greatly enhance Canstar’s capability in unraveling both the mineralization on the Mary March Property and the structure that controls it.
2014 Drilling Program
Canstar Resources actively plans to conduct a diamond drilling program on the Mary March Property. The Company has existing geological targets based on 2013 drilling as well as a very high priority geophysical target generated from the Borehole Electromagnetic surveys (“BHEM”) conducted in winter of 2014. Drilling is anticipated to commence shortly after the collection of data from the announced IP survey, which will be incorporated into the generation and refining of targets on the property. The Company will announce more details on the program upon commencement.
2014 Kenora Gold Project
Canstar has commenced preliminary work on its recently optioned Kenora Gold Project and plans to conduct a reconnaissance mapping and sampling program in July of this year. This work will lead to the definition of key areas of highest potential where more detailed exploration work will be conducted. Work on the Kenora Gold Project will be ongoing throughout the year and developments from this work will be announced as they are compiled.
