Virginia Gold Mines

Virginia Gold Mines makes find in Québec with the help of the Beep Mat





A rusty outcrop was discovered during a regional geological reconnaissance program. A ground follow-up identified a favourable geological context but bedrock assays revealed only geochemical high values. A Beep Mat crew followed up and identified nearby six conductive targets. Once dug out, two trenches revealed only barren sulphides but four revealed high-grade copper zinc ore. An airborne EM survey and a MaxMin survey were then run, followed by diamond drilling of the showings.

During the course of the airborne EM follow up, the same Beep Mat crew managed in six weeks to explain twenty of the airborne EM targets identified by the airborne survey.
