LaSalle Identifies High Priority Geophysical Targets at Radisson: Exploration Set to Resume

Jun 8, 2020

LaSalle Exploration Corp. reports that an induced polarization geophysical survey recently completed on the Radisson Property in the Eeyou Istchee-James Bay Territory has led to the identification of high priority targets, several of which are coincident with gold and gold-copper surface mineralization.

"We are really pleased with the results of the geophysical survey that has confirmed a number of targets in areas of established gold and gold-copper surface mineralization as well as the new targets on less explored areas of the Property. All of these targets will be followed up during the field program this summer," commented Ian Campbell, President and CEO of LaSalle. "We anticipate beginning field work in the first part of July while implementing safety measures related to COVID-19 for both our crew and local inhabitants."

Previous work by LaSalle has included airborne electromagnetic geophysical surveying (VTEM), prospecting, mapping and ground electromagnetic (EM) geophysical surveying. This work resulted in the discovery of widespread gold-copper-silver mineralization disseminated in favourable volcanic, mafic intrusive and sedimentary rocks typical of the region. These showings are distributed across areas of the Property explored to date with grab sample results up to 25 g/t gold and 0.22% copper, 6.3 g/t gold and 3.08% copper, and 5.1 g/t gold and 5.30% copper. LaSalle has also defined several EM anomalies corresponding to host rocks interpreted as being favourable for copper-nickel mineralization with grab samples returning up to 4.77% copper and 1.15% nickel, 0.65 g/t platinum and 1.77 g/t palladium.
