Prospectair Geosurveys of Gatineau, Quebec, has been retained to carry out the 1.604 line-km geophysical survey on the property. The survey will be acquired by a Eurocopter EC120 type aircraft with a high-definition transient electromagnetic system called ProspecTEM and a Geometrics magnetometer.

Flown at low altitude, this configuration will define and characterize the conductive material present to a depth of about 150 m, with excellent spatial resolution. In terms of interpretation of the magnetic data, conductors in the vicinity of the property could potentially be directly associated with disseminated or massive base metal or precious metal sulphide deposits.

The Massicotte-Est property lies about 50 kilometres west of Matagami, in the Abitibi region of Quebec. The property consists of 172 mineral claims in three blocks covering a total of 9,200 hectares. The three blocks are strategically located over more than 45 km along a zone of major gold-bearing deformations known as the Massicotte structure.

The survey results should be available later this spring.

Conductors detected by this survey will be followed-up by prospecting and a soil geochemistry survey prior to drilling of the best targets.
