BMEX Gold Reviews Dunlop Bay Ground EM Survey Results and Begins Field Campaign

Jul 7, 2022

BMEX Gold Inc. (TSXV: BMEX) (OTCQB: MRIRF) (FSE: 8M0) has announced the final interpretation of a ground EM survey (Fixed Loop Transient Electro-Magnetic survey or FL-TDEM) performed over the Dunlop Bay Property ('Dunlop Bay" or the "Property") in the Abitibi region, Québec. This survey aimed to define drilling targets in the vicinity of the Dunlop Bay Ouest showing (also known as Ghislau showing). Three conductivity anomalies (ANO1, ANO2 and ANO3) were identified, forming an East-North-East trending conductive corridor (Figure 1). 

Robert Pryde, President of BMEX Gold, commented: "The results from the FL-TDEM survey are very encouraging as they suggest the continuity of the known Dunlop Bay Ouest showing westward. Amongst the three anomalies, ANO1 and ANO2 are strong from early to late time channels and have modelled plates with high conductance which might reflect the presence of massive sulphide bodies. Also, ANO1 was never tested by drilling. I am pleased to announce that this zone will be further investigated during our field program starting in the next few weeks. In addition to these areas, our previous data compilation and analysis of historical work has identified several high-grade gold targets as well as gold rich massive sulphide targets on the Dunlop Property."

The Company has engaged Laurentia Exploration to complete a field program over Dunlop Bay Property. This program will be starting in July, aiming to 1) find the continuity of existing mineralization, 2) enhance the understanding of the various structural and geological controls over the known occurrences and 3) discover new showings. Recent data compilation work has defined several structural trends related to the known Dunlop Bay showing, that need to be confirmed on the field. 

The field program will focus on confirming, locating and understanding the systems in order to generate drill targets that will be tested by a 3,000 meters program scheduled for Fall 2022 (see April 26th news release). Data compilation to date also identified high grade surface gold mineralization including the Bella (historical grab samples returned up to 273.71 g/t Au) and Omela veins (historical grab samples returned up to 14.48 g/t Au) (Figure 1, GM16102). Minimal historical work has been completed on these targets and they have not been drilled. 

In addition, the Mont Laurier Est showing extension on BMEX ground will also be investigated during this field work season. Indeed, a recent re-interpretation of historical prospection maps and recent detailed imagery has revealed that Cu-Au-Ag rich massive sulphides can be found in this area. Finally, systematic outcrop description and mineralization sampling will be undertaken on the rest of the property, and especially around the Baie Dunlop showing to confirm the above-mentioned structural model. 

The King Tut Project also received an adjusted geological and structural interpretation (Figure 2), based on the late 2021 drilling campaign (see April 26th news release) and the detailed drone-born magnetic data. A major fold hinge seems to control the location of the heart of Tut gold system; this hinge has not been drilled to the west of the known showing. Several other potential fold axis' were also interpreted on King Tut Project. Confirming these structural theories will require follow up field work, to begin late this summer.
