Hemlo Explorers Inc. (TSX-V: HMLO) is pleased to provide an update on its drill program at the North Limb project, located 15 km north of the Hemlo Mine near Manitouwadge, Ontario.
Further analysis of multi-element ICP data using ioGAS© geochemical software has allowed for identification of path-finder elements associated with anomalous Au mineralization in the Armand Lake Volcanic Complex. Elements such as Ag, As, Ba, Bi, Cu, Hg, Mo, Sb, Se, Te, and V are present, which is similar to Au-bearing intervals in the Hemlo Camp. While some of these elements are positively correlated with Au mineralization, others define broader horizons indicating a more extensive corridor of hydrothermal activity.
“We continue to be encouraged by the widespread intersection of contiguous anomalous gold horizons to depth and along considerable strike length,” stated Brian Howlett, CEO of Hemlo Explorers. “These anomalous gold horizons, in addition to widespread elevated pathfinder elements like those at the Hemlo gold deposit, point to an extensive gold enriched hydrothermal system at the North Limb project. Recoding and interpretation of historical drill data has been instrumental to the ongoing interpretation and, accordingly, Hemlo Explorers has engaged the services of Orix Geosciences 2018 Inc. to digitally capture all North Limb project data including in excess of 29,000 m of historical drilling.”
A two-month surface mapping program, covering more than 25 line-kms, and 3D Leapfrog© drillhole geological and geochemical interpretation, is ongoing in an effort to plan additional follow-up drilling.
The North Limb geological setting resembles that of the Hemlo Deposit with felsic to intermediate volcanic and sedimentary assemblages, quartz-feldspar intrusives in a district scale, high strain arcuate structural regime. Similar alteration of silica, sericite, feldspar and vanadium to that of the Hemlo Deposit is found with anomalous gold along the Armand and Musher Horizons which have strike lengths of 7 and 8 kilometres, respectively.
