Second Drill Rig Added to Fecteau Program
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Clarity Metals Corp. (“Clarity” or the “Company”) (CSE: CMET, OTC: CLGCF, FSE: 27G) is pleased to announce that a second drill rig was added to the ongoing drill program at the Fecteau Property for the planned 5000m of diamond drilling.
James Rogers CEO of Clarity comments: “The Company is pleased to have added a second drill rig to its ongoing exploration program at the Fecteau project where drill testing of high priority targets is currently underway.”
Drilling is set to test as many targets as possible which were generated by the Opus One team by means of gold in grain till sampling and targeted IP surveys. The property is known to host two types of mineralization: VMS (Cu-Zn-Au) and mesothermal gold. Both styles of mineralization will be targeted during this program.
VMS targets are represented in the field by numerous gossans of semi-massive to massive sulphides located along and near an east-west trending rhyolite-dacite contact observed over 10 km of strike. Past drilling near surface intersected anomalous copper-zinc intervals associated with anomalous gold.
Mesothermal gold bearing quartz veins are observed at both ends of the property (western and eastern portions) where the volcanic sequence is folded. East-west striking meter-scale shear veins developed parallel to the axial plan of the folds. This drilling program will target potential down dip or down plunge extensions of the know mineralization.
Drilling operations are likely to take a brief pause over the Christmas holiday.
