Cartier Identifies New Targets Similar to Langlade Deposit on Cadillac Extension
Val-d’Or, February 4th, 2016 – Cartier Resources Inc. (TSX-V: ECR) (“Cartier”) announces the results of the OreVision geophysical survey, completed in 2015 on the Cadillac Extension property, situated 110 km east of Senneterre in the Abitibi (Quebec). The survey generated (7) target zones that prioritize exploration along the favourable horizon in two (2) areas of the property (Figure). The target zones show a geophysical signature similar to the Langlade polymetallic (Zn, Cu, Au, Ag) deposit.
Field and laboratory tests were used to define the geophysical conductivity, chargeability and magnetic signature of the deposit. An OreVision survey was conducted using specific parameters capable of detecting the deposit. The results of the survey located the position of the deposit and its extension as well as seven (7) target zones with properties similar to the deposits signature. Field work is planned for this summer in order to help define the best drill hole targets within the identified target zones.
“During the 2011-2012 programs, the current geophysical technology was not available to Cartier in order to optimize drill targeting (Figure). Current confidence, in the selection of the new targets, resides in their similarity with the measured geophysical characteristics of the Langlade deposit as well as their distribution within a favourable corridor hosting the deposit” commented Philippe Cloutier, President and CEO, adding “we are currently evaluating various approaches in order to complete additional work to define drill targets.”
