Murgor Outlines Gold In Soil Anomalies On Strike With The Campbell-red Lake Mine At Its Gullrock Property, Ontario

  • Four stand-out gold in soils anomalies are defined coinciding with IP anomalies.
  • Quartz veins of the Fox Farm occurrence returning up to 10.1% Zn and 1.72% Pb.

KINGSTON, ON, Aug. 18, 2014 /CNW/ - Murgor Resources Inc. (TSX-V: MGR) ("Murgor") released today the preliminary results from a soil geochemistry exploration program carried-out at its 100% owned Gullrock property in Red Lake, Ontario.  The soil geochemistry survey consisted of 535 samples of B-horizon soils located immediately east of Gullrock Lake, approximately 10 kilometres on strike with the Campbell-Red Lake Mine and within a SE-trending structure known as "the Mine Trend".  The soil geochemistry survey covered the same area covered previously by an Induced Polarization geophysical survey and at least four geochemical anomalies coincide with geophysical anomalies.

"We're very pleased with these results at Gullrock," said Andre Tessier, President and CEO of Murgor Resources.  "It's always exciting when you can outline robust soil geochemical anomalies with geophysical anomalies.  The fact that these anomalies are on strike with the Campbell-Red Lake deposit makes them that much more exciting."   

Highlights from the four gold-in-soil anomalies are as follows:

1) Anomaly A

  • 500m of strike length and up to 100m in width (open to the west).
  • Gold values from 2 to 35 times background.
  • Coinciding anomalies in Ag, Te, Sn, As and Cu.
  • Coinciding with a suspected weak Induced Polarization (IP) anomaly.

2) Anomaly B

  • 500m of strike length and up to 150m in width.
  • Gold values from 2 to 40 times background.
  • Coinciding anomalies in As, Pb and Cu.
  • Coinciding with a weak chargeability and strong resistivity IP anomaly.

3) Anomaly C

  • Complex shape anomaly 300m x 250m in size.
  • Gold values from 2 to 28 times background.
  • Coinciding anomalies in Ag, As, Sb and Pb.
  • Coinciding with a complex array of 3 IP anomalies with chargeability ranging from weak to strong and resistivity ranging from weakly conductive to resistive..

4) Anomalies D (east and west)

  • Each 100m of strike length and up to 50m in width.
  • Gold values from 7 to 32 times background.
  • Coinciding anomalies in Te, As, and locally Ag, Pb and Sb.
  • Coinciding with a strong chargeability and conductive IP anomaly.

 

In addition to the soil geochemistry survey, Murgor also carried out limited lithogeochemical sampling surrounding the Fox Farm occurrence, located immediately south of the soil survey area.  The Fox Farm occurrence consists of quartz-carbonate veins laminated to brecciated, up to 20cm in width.  Strike lengths are unknown.  Highlights from this sampling include:

1) Grab samples returning assays of:
(grab samples are selective by the nature and are not necessarily representative of the mineralization in the zone)

  • 10.1% Zn and 1.72% Pb
  • 4.31% Zn and 2.80% Pb
  • 1.21% Zn and 1640ppm Pb
  • 1.82% Pb and 1430ppm Zn
  • 1.32% Pb and 4560ppm Zn.

Future work is planned at Gullrock contingent on financing availability.

About the Gullrock Property

Gullrock Property consist of twelve mining claims covering 1,905 hectares adjoining Goldcorp's Red Lake property to the east, ten kilometres on strike with the Campbell-Red Lake Gold Mine.  The Gullrock Property covers a strike extent of over seven kilometres of what is known as the "Mine Trend", a structural lineament that hosts the Campbell-Red Lake, Cochenour-Willans and MacKenzie Gold Mines where more than 20 million ounces of gold have been mined to date.  The Gullrock Property also covers the same stratigraphic units as the Campbell-Red Lake Mine, including mafic and ultramafic volcanic rocks of the prolific Balmer Assemblage, immediately north of the unconformity with the younger rocks of the Confederation Assemblage.  The Balmer Assemblage hosts all the major producers of the Red Lake Belt.  Despite the geological setting of the Gullrock Property which is very similar to the Campbell-Red Lake Mine setting, the Gullrock Property has seen very limited exploration work and its exploration potential is deemed excellent. 

About Murgor Resources

Murgor Resources Inc. is a mineral exploration and development Company focused on gold and copper exploration in Canada.  The company owns a 100% interest in two gold-copper deposits in the Snow Lake and Flin Flon mining districts of Manitoba and a 40% interest in the Golden Arrow Gold Mine in Ontario.  The Company further owns an exceptional portfolio of high potential gold properties in proven mining districts of Canada, such as its newly acquired Wydee Property.  The company currently has a working capital of nearly $800,000 in cash and securities to finance its exploration activities.
