One more Drill-Ready Property for Cartier / La Pause Property Adjacent Mouska Mine
Val-d’Or, May 15th 2012 – Cartier Resources Inc. (TSX-V: ECR) (“Cartier”) has received results from an IP survey covering 6.5 km2 of the La Pause property. The project is strategically located over a fault zone situated within 2 km of the Mouska Mine and proximal to two mining centers. The IP survey detected several metallic conductors within four areas deemed to host good discovery potential on the property. Ten drill holes are proposed within the fault zone which hosts altered and sheared, gold and silver bearing ultramafic rocks. The holes are proposed to test three distinct settings with a discovery potential within the fault zone:
Ø Proximal to the contact of a sheared felsic intrusive marked by magnetic and IP anomalies;
Ø Along a 20 m thick sulphide-rich iron formation that is outlined by IP anomalies;
Ø An area characterized by a concentration of IP anomalies.
“Cartier Resources has developed a balanced portfolio of mineral exploration properties and the results on the La Pause property have brought it to a drilling stage” notes Philippe Cloutier, President and CEO. “Currently Cartier is focussing its efforts on properties with resources and therefore is seeking a partner to pursue the drilling on La Pause.”
