Northstar Geophysics Identifies Large High Chargeability Corridor at Miller Gold Property Encompassing Known Mineralization; New Structures Delineated

Dec 2, 2020

Northstar Gold Corp. reports that final 3D inversions of a 5km geophysical survey has identified multiple low-resistivity and high-chargeability anomalies extending from recently discovered near-surface syenite intrusion-related gold mineralization at the Miller Gold Property, situated 18 km southeast of Kirkland Lake and Kirkland Lake Gold's Macassa SMC gold mine. Discrete, linear low-resistivity and broader chargeability anomalies may represent faulted hydrothermal conduit structures and pervasive, gold-bearing alteration, respectively, spatially related to the Allied and Planet syenite stocks. 

These important exploration interpretations and implications will be further qualified with recently completed gravity and magnetic survey modeling by GoldSpot Discoveries Corp. utilizing proprietary machine-learning AI and algorithms, in a joint news release currently in preparation.

I.P. Geophysics Highlights:

  • Allied and Planet Syenite gold mineralized areas connected by a 600m wide strong chargeable corridor over a distance of 800 metres, extending beyond for a total distance of 1600 metres (Figure 1).

  • Interpreted second order fault structures include a Northwest striking, steeply dipping splay from the main Catharine Fault that intersects the Allied Syenite and a North-South striking, near vertical structure intersecting the western edge of the Planet Syenite intrusive stock (Figure 2). Both features extend to >500m depth and likely represent primary conduits for gold mineralization on the property. 

  • Strong chargeability anomaly along the western contact of the Allied intrusion which was drilled in hole MG20-47 (1.2 g/t Au over 107.3m) continues NNW; this undrilled area is 200% larger than mineralized area drilled to date within the Allied Syenite.

  • Undrilled strong elongate chargeability anomaly east of Allied intrusive follows the Catherine Fault (major Camp-scale vertical structure) hosting known gold deposits.

  • Resistivity anomalies interpreted to be vertical fault structures (Figure 2) as possible pathways for mineralized hydrothermal fluids. 

  • Planet intrusive is surrounded by strong undrilled chargeability anomalies.
