TORONTO, ONTARIO, Aug 11, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) — Silvore Fox Minerals Corp. (the “Corporation” or “Silvore Fox”)(tsx venture:SFX”) is pleased to provide an update on the status of its 3 main projects: Madagascar, Winston Lake, and Coxheath.
Madagascar, Africa (potential high grade Copper property, LOI signed stage)
Silvore Fox has maintained a presence in Madagascar since the first week of April 2011. The Corporation’s VP of Exploration, Zhenquan Gao, PhD has taken the lead role in conducting geological due diligence with the assistance of a geological team from Beijing Donia Resources Co Ltd. (“Donia”) that included three senior geologists and two junior geologists.
“The team’s primary objective,” Dr. Gao said, “is to map and determine the property’s drill readiness and deliver a recommendation on the property overall based on its geological merits.” Silvore Fox is also still conducting commercial due diligence and additional negotiations on the potential Joint Venture with Gaea Mining for these claims. The current extension agreement for those negotiations remains in force until September 16, 2011.
Winston Lake, Ontario (high grade Zinc property, 100% owned, no NSR)
Silvore Fox has now signed a contract with Geotech Ltd. to utilize their helicopter borne Versatile Time-Domain Electromagnetic (VTEM) geophysical survey system to cover Silvore Fox’s 9,000 hectares of claims in the Winston and Pick Lake region near Schreiber in North Western Ontario. The survey, scheduled to begin within the next week or so, will test all extensions of the favourable volcanic layers for potential new targets.
Mr. Ian Chisholm, PEng, was engaged by the Corporation to be the lead consultant on this project. The 2011 work program is based on results from several months of compilation of all historically available information concerning the claim areas.
These claims contain the zinc rich (15% Zn) Pick Lake volcanogenic massive sulphide deposit (VMS) and encompass the mining permit containing the similar grade Winston Lake and Zenmac VMS deposits mined out by the 1990’s.
Coxheath, Nova Scotia (Copper Porphyry system, 100% owned)
The Corporation has also signed a contract with Quantec Geoscience to utilize their Titan 24 Deep Earth Imaging technology for an 8-line (approximately 19.2km) DCIP & MT survey at Silvore Fox’s 100% owned Coxheath claims near Sydney, Nova Scotia.
The Titan system measures the parameters of DC (resistivity), IP (chargeability) and MT (magnetotelluric resistivity), to depths of 750 meters with IP and can explore beyond 1.5 kilometers with MT data. Acquisition of multi-parameter data at depths of up to 1.5 km should help Silvore Fox obtain subsurface pre-drilling information related to geologic structure and for the direct detection of potential mineral deposits.
One of the areas of focus for the DCIP & MT survey is the 1km long ‘new’ anomaly discovered by the late 2010 airborne survey inside what was, at the time, a newly added contiguous claims area for Silvore Fox. This geophysical survey will provide a high resolution view of specific, high priority, target areas with known copper, gold, and moly minererlization. Work on the survey has now commenced, with formal interpretation results being delivered by mid to late September.
“The past 6 months have been a busy time for the Silvore Fox team, developing and advancing work plans for our two Canadian properties while investing the time and resources necessary to determine the geological merits of the Madagascar project and systematically complete the complex legal process involved with this type of potential international acquisition.
We are hopeful that the intense level of preparatory work that has gone into this year’s work program will help to produce positive results for the company going forward and ultimately improve shareholder value. There is potential for SFX to have drills turning at each of our 3 projects during 2011, dependant on the results received from the geophysical surveys of the Canadian properties and finalizing a formal agreement in Madagascar.”
