2010-2012 Exploration Work by Fancamp on the Clinton Copper-Zinc Project
In 2010, Fancamp focused its exploration work at the southern end of the Project where work by Noranda in the 1980's had detected boulders of massive sulphides. Fancamp completed an airborne Electromagnetic survey or VTEM survey covering 1,095 line-kilometers which detected all the previously known sulphide zones and a number of new conductors along two conductive bands. This was followed by ground geophysics consisting of 3.2 kilometers of MAXMIN-EM and a gravity survey of 1.5 kilometers, and 4 diamond drill holes totaling 654 meters (refer to the appended diamond drill hole statistics and Quality Assurance / Quality Control protocols).
Drill hole CL-2010-01 cut felsic volcanic tuffs locally containing 10-15% sulphides with minor disseminated sphalerite. The best assay interval yielded 0.87% Zinc over 3 meters. Drill hole CL-2010-02 was drilled underneath the first hole and intersected minor anomalous intervals of Zinc. Drill holes CL-2010-03 and CL-2010-04 drilled a parallel conductor but without intersecting values of interest. Each drill hole contained conductive argillites. The gravity survey was done over the first two drill holes parallel to the conductor but did not yield any favorable results.
In 2011, Fancamp cut 32 kilometers of grid line and completed a ground UTEM survey over the grid area. This was followed by 12 holes for 2,255 meters of diamond drilling on the "D" and "V" zones (refer to the appended diamond drill hole statistics), and the UTEM conductor. Drill holes CL-2011-01 to 06 tested the possible extensions of the "D" Zone which forms part of a strong UTEM conductor some 450 meters in length by 250 meters deep. Five of the six drill holes intersected a 0.05 meters to 0.7 meters band of semi-massive to massive sulphides within chloritic schists that extends laterally for 200 meters and to a depth of 100 meters. Drill hole CL-2011-02 did not reach the target depth. Assay interval results varied between 0.24% Copper and 1.22% Zinc over 0.10 meters to 2.39% copper and 0.79% Zinc over 1.50 meters.
Drill holes CL-2011-07 and 08 tested the lateral continuity of the "V" Zone discovered by Namex in 1996. Historical drilling intersected up to 2.24% Copper over 6.4 meters and 1.14% Copper over 10.3 meters. The UTEM survey did not detect any conductors over the zone. Drill hole CL-2011-07 intersected up to 0.14% Copper and 0.54% Zinc over 1.40 meters. Drill hole CL-2011-08 yielded 1.79 % Copper over 6.19 meters within a wider envelope of 1.09% Zinc over 14.58 meters. Drill holes CL-2011-09 to 12 tested a series of IP anomalies from the 1996 Namex survey and a portion of the 2011 UTEM conductor over an un-drilled segment of the mineralized horizon. Drill hole CL-2011-12 yielded 2.21% Copper and 0.48% Zinc over 0.70 meters from the UTEM conductor. An In-Hole EM survey was completed in drill holes CL-2011-03 to 06 from the "D" Zone and in drill holes CL-2011-11 and 12 from the "V" Zone. There were no anomalies detected in drill hole CL-2011-12.
In 2012, Fancamp completed a magnetic and a Deep IP survey on the "V" Zone covering 17 kilometers, followed by diamond drilling of 24 holes totaling 5,742 meters on the "D", "F" and "V" zones (refer to the appended diamond drill hole statistics). Drill holes CL-2012-02 to 08 drilled on the "D" Zone continued to intersect a narrow massive sulphides horizon averaging 1.15 meters wide yielding 1.54% Copper and 0.94% Zinc. Incorporating drill hole date from 2011, the horizon averages 1.06 meters wide grading 1.72% Copper and 0.97% Zinc over a 300 meters long by 200 meters deep zone.
