Warrior Gold Inc. (TSXV:WAR) has completed a high-resolution airborne magnetic and LiDAR survey recently undertaken at its Kirkland Lake Gold Camp properties in Ontario. Data compilation and processing of the survey data is currently underway.
The large regional, roughly 3,400 line-kilometre triaxial magnetic, VLF and LiDAR survey across the KLW and KLC/Arnold project areas was completed in a timely and efficient manner by GoldSpot Discoveries Corp.’s Geophysical Services division from May 25 to June 14, 2022. The survey parameters included a flightline azimuth of 0º/180º and flight-line spacing of 50 m. Tie lines at 500-m spacing had an azimuth of 090º/270º.
This high-resolution survey utilised GoldSpot’s newly developed M-PASS system, a proprietary platform that has been designed to collect the magnetic and VLF datasets, LiDAR and orthophotos – simultaneously.
“We are very happy to have completed this large and detailed survey for Warrior Gold. Now that this milestone is complete, these newly acquired datasets will help to unlock the value of the promising KLW, KLC and Arnold projects. We look forward how this data will guide the upcoming exploration plans of Warrior Gold,” Goldspot CEO, Vincent Dubé-Bourgeois, said.
The data sets collected by this survey are currently being processed and results are anticipated in early July. Once received, Warrior will undertake a combined geophysical and structural interpretation of the data and combine this with the compilation of the geology and known mineral showings of the KLW and KLC/Arnold land packages, all of which will guide future exploration plans, including a follow-up field program.
“We are excited to receive the results and interpretation of this airborne survey which will provide the foundation to our geological and structural understanding of this most recently acquired portion of our land package,” Warrior Gold CEO, Danièle Spethmann, said.
“As geoscientists we all know, structure is key to the orogenic gold deposit model not only in the Kirkland Lake gold camp, but throughout the metal-endowed Abitibi greenstone belt. The airborne survey data will be married with known historical mineralized showings and follow-up work will include the ground-truthing of geophysical interpreted structures and known mineralised trends.
“All of this work and the exploration drilling on our Goodfish Kirana project continue to advance our efforts towards making a discovery in the gold rich Kirkland Lake camp.”
The company also reported that recently filed assessment work report on the 2021 diamond drilling programmes was approved by the Ontario Ministry of Mining Lands Administration (MLAS) and has extended the current Goodfish-Kirana and KLW land packages’ good standing from 2030 to roughly 2032.
