The company has engaged TMC Geophysics to undertake a ground EM study at Tarku, which is expected to begin in early February 2022 and is expected to last approximately three weeks.
Mont Royal Resources Ltd (ASX:MRZ) is about to begin its first field program on the recently acquired Tarku property in the Upper Eastmain greenstone belt in Quebec, Canada.
Ground electromagnetic (EM) surveys are due to begin early next month and this should generate drill targets.
The program will target TDEM and VTEM anomalies in the northwest and central areas of the property.
In addition, a detailed documentary study is underway at the Eastmain-Léran project.
EM ground survey
Mont Royal has engaged TMC Geophysics to undertake the ground EM survey which is expected to take approximately three weeks.
Preliminary results are expected in March/April 2022 and IOS services will organize all the required logistics, which includes accommodation and helicopter support.
Mount Royal plans to use EM geophysics, which applies to different commodities (base metals, polymetallic deposits, nickel sulphides and gold) and styles of mineralization, as the basis of its exploration strategy in the greenstone belt of Upper Eastmain.
The Company anticipates that this approach will provide a clear path to discovery with drill targets that will be generated by the survey.
This exploration program will begin with a ground EM survey that will target the southern thrust zone on the western part of Tarku called Target-1.
The western part of Target-1 is characterized by a group of small heliborne EM anomalies distributed near the Colline du Chateau Fort gold showing along the Ruby Hill corridor.
The size and intensity of these anomalies are similar to those identified on the nearby Eastmain property where they were found related to gold mineralization, so the EM exploration survey will initially focus on this part of Target-1.
Another target, defined as Target-2 represents a strong heliborne EM anomaly approximately in the middle of the Tarku property, where it coincides with the gabbro intrusion.
The western flank of the intrusion is cut by a set of east-northeast trending faults that are related to the gold occurrence of the Colline du Château Fort.
Office study in Eastmain-Léran
Mount Royal’s geological team has begun a desk study of the Eastmain-Léran property which contains numerous gold and base metal assets.
In particular, the objective of this study is to quickly define and prioritize exploration targets, which will form the basis of an exploration program also prepared for this property.
