Vancouver, B.C. —July 30, 2018 — ExplorexResources Inc. (the “Company” or “Explorex”) (EX:CSE; 1XE:FSE; EXPXF:US) is pleased to announce it has commenced its 2018 exploration program at its ’never been drilled’ Kagoot Brook cobalt project in New Brunswick.
Kagoot Brook 2018 Exploration Program
The exploration program at Kagoot Brook will be conducted in two phases. The first phase will include line cutting followed by a detailed continuous magnetometer, very low frequency electromagnetic(“VLF-EM”) and induced polarization (“IP”) geophysical surveys covering the prospective2 kilometre long corridor between two creeks reporting highly anomalous silt samples grading up to 6,000 ppm Cobalt (see Company news releases dated May 31 and February 14, 2018).The geophysical surveys, in combination, are designed to delineate mineralized features buried under a shallow blanket of till.
The Phase 1 program will also include a small focused stream silt sampling program to 1) determine if the highly anomalous cobalt corridor extends beyond the 2 kilometres that has been traced to date; and 2) perform a multi-element analysis to better characterize the mineralizing model.
The second phase will consist of a 2,000m drill program targeting the mineralized features identified from the Phase 1 exploration program.
Field work has commenced with the initiation of the line cutting and silt sampling program. Shortly upon completion, the geophysical surveys will be conducted. The drill program is anticipated to commence later this summer once the final drill targets have been established.
About Kagoot Brook
The project consists of seven claims, totalling 4,233 hectares, located in north-central New Brunswick, 85 kilometres southwest of Bathurst along the southwest margin of the famous Bathurst mining camp. The property is underlain by Cambro-Ordivician felsic volcanics and sediments. In 1983, the New Brunswick government, released stream sediment sampling results with anomalous responses which led to the staking of the original Kagoot Brook claims by Brunswick Mining and Smelting.
Soil sampling was carried out in 1984 and 4.6 km of magnetic and 13.0 km of VLF-EM (very low-frequency electromagnetic) geophysical surveys was also completed, as well as stream sediment silt samples. The VLF survey indicated three strong and two weak conductors within the property. The trends are oriented near east-west and delineate three areas of major interest. The historic soil samples returned favourable results from the three areas with a strong association between copper, silver and cobalt with the VLF conductors. The silt sampling program returned strongly anomalous cobalt with values up to 6,000 ppm with anomalous values in copper, lead, zinc and nickel.
Even with all the positive and highly compelling indicators, no drilling has ever been conducted and no source of the geochemical anomalies are known on the property.
Explorex has an option to earn a 75% interest in the project from Great Atlantic Resources Corp.
