Cartier Launches a Major Airborne Survey on Its Copper Discovery
Val-d’Or, Quebec, July 13th, 2010 – Cartier Resources Inc. (TSX-V: ECR) (”Cartier”) is pleased to announce that it has launched the first high resolution geophysical survey to cover its copper discovery (refer to November 18, 2009 press release) on its large Rivière Doré property. The property is situated in an under-explored area 100 kilometers south-east of Val-d’Or. The survey will cover the entire 85-kilometer long prospective trend and provide orientation for follow-up ground work and better define the target areas.
The geological setting of this area is characterized by a layered intrusive complex which is bounded to the south by meta-sediments and to the north by meta-volcanics. Cartier staked the entire favorable contact which is characterized by a prominent magnetic high that spans over 85 kilometers in length. Prospecting and till sampling have confirmed the potential that regional lake bottom anomalies had identified.
The survey was awarded to AeroQuest who will employ their recently developed AeroTEM IV magnetic-electromagnetic heliborne system. Over 3,800 line kilometres spaced every 200 metres will be flown to cover the entire prospective trend. The technology is extensively and successfully employed to detect copper-nickel mineralization in the Raglan Mine area and other productive areas around the world.
“The Rivière Doré property is considered a high priority”, commented Philippe Cloutier, President & CEO, “we hope this new geophysical survey will provide our team with focussed targets for ground follow-up and drilling that could lead to a significant discovery.”
