Quantec mourns the loss Jeff Nichols

Jeff Nichols

 1964 – 2018

  


 

It is with heavy hearts that we share the sad news of the sudden passing of Jeff Nichols on Saturday, August 18, 2018, after a short and courageous battle against cancer. Jeff has been a vital part of the Quantec family since 2011, and his unexpected and untimely death is deeply felt by all of us at Quantec.

 

 

 

Those of us who had the privilege of knowing Jeff – not just as a co-worker, but also as a friend – will remember him as a passionate and caring person.

 

Jeff’s love of the outdoors led him to a career in geophysics. After working on survey crews around the world for Zonge Engineering and then Geosystems, a division of Schlumberger, Jeff joined Quantec in a sales capacity. Jeff was very keen about the Geothermal sector and developed new business for the company there. Jeff was an excellent liaison between clients and Quantec operations due to his hands-on knowledge of field geophysics, and this resulted in him being Quantec’s top salesperson for 5 years running.

 

We will miss Jeff’s wry sense of humour, his love of geophysics, and his passion for life.

LEXI Announces Positive Geophysical Results Interpreted as a Thick, Continuous Brine Discovery at Antofalla Salar

TORONTO, March 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Lithium Energi Exploration, Inc. (TSXV:LEXI) (“LEXI” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce positive results from its initial geophysical surveys on each of the first three concessions studied in the northern section of its holdings in the Antofalla Salar.  Interpreted brine horizons were detected throughout the entire 80 km2 area of these concessions, inferring the possibility that lithium-bearing brine exists beneath the properties in the northern area of the Antofalla Salar. The survey results received to date indicate that conductive horizons have been detected from just below surface to as much as 400 meters in depth.

LEXI’s Director of Exploration, Miles Rideout, noted, “Having conducted or supervised the acquisition of thousands of kilometers of TEM soundings in brine environments over the last thirty years, I’m pleased to report that the initial geophysical results exceeded our expectations. The highly conductive units encountered correlate with known brine aquifers and these data allow us to follow these target zones under areas of thick cover.”

BELMONT RECEIVES RESULTS OF MAGNETOTELLURIC (MT) SURVEY ON THE KIBBY BASIN – NEVADA LITHIUM PROPERTY

 

Vancouver, B.C. Canada, March 1, 2018 – Belmont Resources Inc. (TSX.V: BEA; FSE: L3L1DTC Eligible – CUSIP 080499403); (“Belmont”, or the “Company”)

Further to our news release of January 23, 2018 in which Belmont announced the commencing by Quantec Geoscience Limited (“Quantec”) of the Spartan AMT/MT Survey.

Belmont is pleased to announce the receipt of the Geophysical Report for Spartan Magnetotelluric (MT) Survey over the KibbyBasin property, carried out by Quantec. The survey covered most of Belmont’s Kibby Basin-Nevada claims and included the playa basin area as well as some of the adjoining higher level lands.

The MT survey and 3D inversion report clearly mapped a more conductive zone at many of thesurvey stations. This variation of the resistivity at depth is interpreted by Quantec as being a potential contact with sub-surface brine that may contain lithium.

The results of the MT survey are a critical source of information and provides a vital step that allows Belmont to select the most prospective locations and higherprobability brine aquifer targets for the next phase of drilling in 2018. Locations where the potential brine contacts are closest to the playa surface are being considered by Belmont as themost favourable targets.

The survey was completed in January, 2018 by field staff from Quantec and measured MT data at a total of 49 sites distributed along an XY grid with a site separation of 1000 metres, comprising approximately 36 square kilometers. The MT data were analyzed using 3D inversion which provides Belmont with a 3D model of the property from the surface down to 3 kilometers depth.

The results of the Quantec MT survey correlated well with information previously obtained from the gravity survey modeling (Wright Geophysics -2016). Quantec’s MT survey results clearly map a more conductive zone beginning at approximately 500m depth.

General Moly announces follow-up targetting

General Moly to Explore for Copper, Silver and Zinc at Mt. Hope Project

– Historical Drill Intercepts Indicate Potential For High-Grade, Copper-Silver Target

– New Results from Geophysical Survey Highlight Anomalies for Follow-Up Drilling

LAKEWOOD, Colo., March 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — General Moly, Inc. (the “Company” or “General Moly”) (NYSE American and TSX: GMO), the only western-exchange listed, pure play molybdenum development company, reports that based on a review of historic drill results, the Company has identified a potential high-grade, copper-silver exploration target along with a significant zinc mineralized area at the Mt. Hope Projectsite, southeast of the Mt. Hope’s molybdenum deposit in central Nevada.

Given the presence of this copper-silver target (“Cu-Ag Target”) and zinc mineralization, General Molyundertook a high-intensity, ground-based Induced Polarization (“IP”) survey to determine if potential continuity and the size of the mineralization would justify additional exploration and evaluation. The IP survey was completed in February 2018 by Quantec Geoscience and indicates a fairly continuous group of high chargeability anomalies that appear aligned with the recently identified Cu-Ag Target.

These anomalies lie between 100 feet and 1,000-plus feet from the surface and trend northeast for over 1,000 feet. The IP survey indicates that the anomalies could continue further to the north-northeast and to the south where they appear to dip to the east.

Ground IP Survey Results Highlights

The IP survey, which focused on the Cu-Ag Target, comprised six lines each of a 2,400-foot length with 2 lines running SW to NE (lines 1 and 6) and 4 lines (lines 4, 3, 2 and 5) running SE to NW and perpendicular to lines 1 and 6.

The survey found an anomalous high chargeability zone located at between 100 to 1,000 feet of depth with thicknesses between 200 and 800 feet, up to 1,000 feet of width and measuring over 1,000 feet trending north-northeast. (Please refer to the cross section of Line 3 shown below and to Appendix Illustration 2. High chargeability is indicated by the orange, red and pink colors.)

 

In addition, results from all the IP lines indicate that the anomalous zone remains open at depth. Parallel IP lines 1 and 6 also indicate that the anomalous zone appears to trend to the northeast dipping towards the southwest, remaining open.  Based on the IP results and historic drilling data, the Cu-Ag Target appears to lie at a 40-degree angle down dip.
