VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / July 30, 2020 / MGX Minerals Inc. ("MGX" or the "Company") (CSE:XMG) (FKT:1MG) (OTC:MGXMF) is pleased to provide details of on site activities at the Heino Gold Deposit and Tillicum Claims.
As recommended by mine engineering consultants SRK Consulting (Canada) Ltd., two 150 kg. samples from Heino-Money Gold Zone and East Ridge Zone have been sent for metallurgic testing for extraction of gold and silver at ALS Canada. The Heino material is from the 2130 adit portal area, where recent bulk sampling has taken place (as reported below), and the East Ridge sample is from historical 1988 drill core.
Twenty-five soil samples have been taken from a 200 x 300 meter area East of Tillicum Mountain. The samples have been sent for assay and results are expected shortly.
A total of 3.9km of magnetometer survey have been completed to further delineate and detail the extension of Heino and East Ridge Zones.
The Notice of Work for a 3000 meter drill program has received preliminary review by the British Columbia Ministry of Mines and has been found to have no known archaeological sites within the proposed work area. The application is expected to enter the consultation phase shortly.
The Company is reviewing proposals for helicopter LiDAR and satellite hyperspectral and synthetic radar mapping options for proposed 5751 ha. survey as recommended by SRK Consulting. Both options will provide data for the identification of surface mineralization, related structures, and existing infrastructure without interference from vegetation. The helicopter based proposal would also provide a magnetometer survey and is likely to be the chosen method. Data will provide a modern mapping basis for infrastructure planning and future exploration.
As announced July 24th, 2020, six 0.5kg to 1kg, samples were taken at the 2030 Portal of the Heino-Money Pit Zone at the Heino Gold Deposit during the SRK Consulting (Canada) Site Visit July 8th, 2020. Samples were shipped under direct chain of custody to ALS Canada Ltd. in Kamloops, British Columbia, crushed and pulverized, with further shipment to ALS Canada Ltd, North Vancouver, BC under custody of ALS Canada Ltd. The samples have undergone gold analysis by fire assay and gravimetric finish up to 6 ounces per tonne Au are reported. Previous silver, lead, and zinc assays from press release issued July 20 are included. Bulk Samples are of selected mineralized material and are not representative of the deposit as no mineral resource estimate at any level of confidence has been completed:
