Beaufield doubles its Tortigny copper-zinc-silver-gold property
Beaufield Resources has reported that it has increased the land package in the Tortigny-Troilus district in Quebec by staking an additional 348 claims, or 18,995 hectares bringing the total holdings to 810 claims for 42,849 hectares.
These new claims cover a number of high-priority base and precious metal targets in the vicinity of the Tortigny deposit that were identified as part of a comprehensive, district scale compilation of the historic exploration conducted in the area. The Tortigny property is located approximately 100 kilometres northwest of the town of Chibougamau, Quebec with year-round access.
Field work for the Tortigny property is scheduled to commence in June 2018 and will consist of surface prospecting, geological mapping, ground geophysics and geochemistry exploration (till and soil sampling) over select areas described in further detail below. Meanwhile, the Corporation plans on completing an assessment of the historic drilling at Tortigny base metal deposit and nearby Baie Moleon prospect (2.82% Cu, 1.12% Zn and 265.5 g/t Ag over 6m (Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources (“MERN”) Report GM GM 12700)).
In vicinity of the Tortigny deposit, exploration will concentrate on mapping the favorable geological horizon that hosts the deposit.
