The recently renamed Galan Lithium (ASX-GLN) – formerly Dempsey Minerals – is preparing to commence its much anticipated geophysical surveys at the Salar de Hombre Muerto Project, Argentina.
The geophysical surveys will be closely followed after its initial survey work delineated shallow, conductive anomalies associated with lithium saturated brine.
The previous survey also presented significant mineralisation upside, with the brine appearing to extend laterally to the east and west of the target channel.
Depths to brine were relatively shallow and ranged from approximately 150m to over 400m in thickness across at least ten kilometres through the inspected channel.
The upcoming geophysical work will further increase the company’s understanding of the potential of its brine deposit.
At the time of the initial discovery Galan chairman, Mr Nathan McMahon, said:
To have identified an area of approximately 10km within our project containing geological units consistent with those saturated with brine, adjacent to significant lithium projects and within one of the most prolific salt flats, gives us great optimism for the testing of our exploration model.”
The Company has engaged well-regarded geophysical contractors Quantec Geoscience Ltd to conduct the exploration work. Quantec have significant experience targeting similar lithium brine mineralisation and conducted the initial surveys at the project.
Exploration is set to commence in approximately 7-10 days.
September 6th, 2018, Lexi Announces Final Geophysical Results are Positive on Over 36,000 Hectares of Brine Discoveries at Antofalla Salar
On March 25, 2018 and May 10, 2018, the Company had previously announced partial, preliminary results from this geophysical program, which was conducted by Quantec Geoscience Ltd., a world leader in mineral exploration with electromagnetic survey technologies. The final survey report encompassed approximately 200 line-kilometers of Transient Electromagnetic (TEM) Sounding profiles (comprised of 1,028 individual sounding sites) distributed along 36 survey lines. TEM technology is a fast, high-resolution exploration tool capable of imaging variations in sub-surface electrical resistivities to depths exceeding 500 m and has been a primary exploration tool in saline aquifer and fresh-water/brine interface projects for more than three decades. The final report from Quantec Geoscience adds further to the “better-than-expected” results related in the two previous news announcements, which indicate that the surveyed concessions (approximately 36,589 hectares within 14 semi-contiguous claims) exhibit electrical resistivity values and distribution patterns consistent with highly-conductive unconfined aquifers believed to be lithium-bearing brine horizons. These compelling survey results will contribute to the target discrimination for LEXI’s envisaged exploration drilling, intended to identify mineral chemistry, lithology, porosity, pump rates, and other hydrogeological factors.

SPARTAN MT Anomaly: A New Discovery
TORONTO, March 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — North American Palladium Ltd. (“NAP” or the “Company”) (TSX:PDL) (OTC PINK:PALDF) is pleased to announce results from its winter exploration program on the Sunday Lake Project (the “Project”) located 25 km northeast of Thunder Bay, Ontario. The Project is focused on a recently discovered platinum-group metal (“PGM”) deposit hosted within the Sunday Lake mafic-ultramafic intrusion. The Company entered into an Definitive Option Agreement (the “Option Agreement”) in June 2017 with Impala Platinum Holdings Ltd. (“Impala”) and Transition Metals Corp (“Transition”) (through its wholly-owned subsidiary, HTX Minerals Corporation). The Option Agreement gives the Company the exclusive right to earn Impala’s 75% interest in the Sunday Lake property, with Transition maintaining a 25% free carried interest through to the completion of a Feasibility Study.
- Hole SL-17-18B intersected 18.65m of 4.05 g/t combined Pt + Pd + Au (“3E”) including 4.9m of 6.1 g/t 3E and 0.64% Cu that appears to represent a fault-related southwesterly extension to the previously intersected PGM mineralization in the eastern part of the SLI.
- Hole SL-18-21 intersected 35.8m of 3.9 g/t 3E including 6.5m of 8.3 g/t 3E with 1.08% Cu and 0.36% Ni, establishing local-scale continuity in the vicinity of the previously reported thickest and highest-grade mineralization on the property.
- Hole SL-18-22 intersected 33.2m of 2.8 g/t 3E including 5.9m of 6.8 g/t 3E and 0.67% Cu with 1.0 m of 17.5 g/t 3E and 1.48% Cu, representing the first discovery of PGM mineralization in the central part of the Sunday Lake intrusion.
- Holes SL-18-21 and SL-18-22 collectively intersected the highest individual sample 3E, Cu and Ni values obtained to date from the Project.
“We are very encouraged by the new drilling results at Sunday Lake, which provide clear targets for follow-up programs, including newly defined structural targets, untested geophysical anomalies, and additional drilling on newly discovered PGM mineralization in the centre of the SLI. This project is the most advanced exploration-stage opportunity within our attractive regional property portfolio,” said Jim Gallagher, President and CEO of North American Palladium.
“The discovery of PGM mineralization in the central part of the property, with extensions to the eastern area of mineralization, are very positive developments that open up a much larger area for exploration. We have a better understanding of the controls on PGM mineralization, which suggest that the thicker and higher-grade areas were developed along two major structural trends and are detectable using geophysical data. These new insights are generating additional targets for future drilling programs,” said Dr. Dave Peck, Vice-President, Exploration at North American Palladium.
Program Objectives and Target Selection
Following completion of a three-month review of technical information last fall, the Company initiated its first drilling program with three principal objectives:
- Determine the lateral extent and continuity of the eastern area of PGM mineralization;
- Test the northeastern part of the intrusion for near-surface PGM mineralization; and
- Test other geophysical and structural targets on the property.
Geophysical surveys provided critical guidance in the selection of drill targets in the current program, particularly because the Sunday Lake Intrusion (“SLI” or the “intrusion”) is covered by Quetico Subprovince metasedimentary host rocks. The current program included numerous borehole electromagnetic surveys, a new surface magnetic and electromagnetic survey over the northeastern extension target, and the first audio magnetotelluric (“AMT”) survey on the property, over the central part of the intrusion ( Figure 1). Results from these surveys were integrated with previous gravity and magnetic survey data to help guide the selection of the new drill holes. The AMT results were particularly informative and prompted the drilling of hole SL-18-22 in the untested central part of the intrusion.
A total of ten holes and approximately 8,500 metres of drilling were completed during the current program. At this time, assay results for the final two holes testing the northeast extension target are still pending. Drill hole collar locations are shown in Figure 1. Results from the first eight holes completed during the current program are discussed below with reference to the primary objectives of the current program. The analyses reported in this news release were performed by ALS Global in Vancouver, British Columbia. The company’s rigorous internal quality control and quality assurance protocols are described in detail in the current Technical Report for its Lac des Iles mine ( June 2017 – available on SEDAR).
AMT Anomaly: A New Discovery
Drill hole SL-18-22 was drilled in the untested, central part of the SLI and targeted the aforementioned AMT anomaly ( Figure 3). This hole intersected 33.2m of 2.8 g/t 3E including 5.9m of 6.8 g/t 3E and 0.67% Cu. A one metre interval from the bottom of this intersection returned 17.5 g/t 3E and 1.48% Cu. The new intersection is located 300m west of the eastern area of mineralization and is associated with a discrete, coincident magnetic-gravity-resistivity anomaly that remains open in all directions.
Positive Results from the Eastern Part of the SLI
Drill hole SL-18-21 intersected 35.8m of 3.9 g/t 3E including 23.3m of 5.4 g/t 3E and 6.5m of 8.3 g/t 3E with 1.08% Cu ( Figure 2). This result indicates good grade-thickness continuity over the ~30 metres of horizontal distance between this intersection and the previous best intersection in hole SL-15-13, which returned 42.9m of 3.4 g/t 3E.
Two drill holes, SL-17-18B and SL-18-19 were completed to test for a possible southwestern extension to the PGM mineralization in the eastern part of the SLI. Hole SL-17-18B intersected 35.4m of 2.8 g/t 3E including 18.6m of 4.01 g/t 3E (see table) and 4.9m of 5.32 g/t 3E with 0.63% Cu ( Figure 3). Hole SL-18-19 intersected 11.9 metres of 1.37 g/t 3E including 5.0m of 2.29 g/t 3E. Collectively, these results have extended the eastern area of mineralization by 50-100m to the southwest and toward the centre of the intrusion. Combined with new geophysical survey results, they also highlight an untested strike length of approximately 500m between these two holes. The latter target area follows one of several interpreted northwest-trending structures that appear to be associated with thicker and higher grade PGM mineralization on the property.
The PGM mineralization in the SLI is interpreted to represent structurally-controlled accumulations of magmatic sulfides having high PGM concentrations. The current program has significantly expanded the search area for future drilling campaigns with the delineation of a southwesterly extension to the previously defined limits of the eastern area of mineralization and the discovery of a new area of mineralization in the centre of the intrusion. Recent results provide clear targets for follow up programs, including newly defined structural targets, untested geophysical anomalies, and additional drilling on newly discovered PGM mineralization in the centre of the SLI and in the northern and eastern parts of the intrusion.
Pd, Pt, Au, Cu and Ni assay results for the October 2017 to March 2018 Sunday Lake exploration drilling program. True widths are estimated as being between 80% and 95% of the reported interval lengths.

TORONTO, June 28, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Galway Metals Inc. (TSX-V:GWM) (the “Company” or “Galway”) is pleased to report results from new Titan geophysical surveys recently completed by Galway along the Newiska horizon on the Company’s 20,915 hectare, 100%-owned, Estrades Project in the northern Abitibi of western Quebec, Canada. Highlights include a sizable new geophysical target at the Newiska prospect, 8,000m southeast of the former producing Estrades polymetallic deposit, and a new target, some 2,200m south of the main Estrades deposit, (“Estrades South”). In addition, Galway is pleased to report assay results, highlighting high grade copper intersections from the first drill hole by Galway into the Newiska rhyolite horizon (Figure 1).
Galway Intersects Strong Copper in Wide Area Southeast of Estrades
Drill Hole GWM18-NK-01 intersected 4.2% copper over 0.7 metres (see core picture in core box) in a 22.0 metre interval that returned 0.5% copper, hitting the high grade stringer vein some 93 metres from an historic hole that returned 2.0% copper and 37.4 g/t silver over 1.5m in a 9.4 metre interval that returned 1.1% copper and 41.5 g/t Ag. The high-grade stringer vein intervals in both holes contained considerable chalcopyrite. In the new hole, GWM18-NK-01, the high-grade mineralization is part of an extensive 132 metre stringer zone that is present from 328-460 metres. A second stringer zone is present from 141-194 metres. The significance of such stringer zones is that they are commonly found peripheral to major VMS (Volcanogenic Massive Sulfide) deposits, which are a major source of metals such as copper, zinc and lead. Importantly, these drill results are located on the edge of a new geophysical target outlined by Galway’s recently completed Titan geophysical survey, as discussed below, which may indicate the presence of a major, previously unrecognized massive sulfide body at Newiska (Figure 2). Of note is that Galway’s drill program at Newiska occurred prior to the receipt of Titan geophysical results.
New Titan Geophysical Survey Anomaly Below Strong Copper in Drill Hole
At hole GWM18-NK_01, Galway’s new Titan geophysical survey from Quantec Geoscience outlined a strong IP (“Induced Polarization”) conductive zone over 900 metres in length that may correlate with a deep MT (“Magnetotelluric”), less-resistive anomaly extending to depths of 2,000 metres (Figure 2). As this could possibly represent a large body of massive sulfide mineralization, and given the copper-rich stringer zones found peripheral to the location of the anomaly, this represents an exciting new target for follow-up drilling.
New Titan Anomaly South of Estrades Main Deposit
In addition, a second very strong Titan IP chargeability target, “Estrades South,” has been discovered 8,200m west along the same Newiska rhyolite horizon, and located 2,200m south of the Estrades deposit itself. According to Quantec, this target “seems to present the same [geophysical] signature as the Estrades deposit” and “is associated with a conductive zone” below and to depth (Figure 3). Galway believes there has never been any drilling into this area, with the closest known historical drill hole some 400 metres south, and the best drill hole in the area returning 4.7% copper over 0.6 metres in a stringer zone located 1,000m southwest. This new Titan conductive zone also coincides with magnetic and VLF anomalies, making yet another highly prospective drill target that could uncover another volcanogenic massive sulfide (VMS) deposit in the Estrades Camp. This should be seen in the context of the fact that VMS deposits, as seen in many districts around the world, tend to form in clusters and so these two targets could represent other deposits in the same cluster.
“Galway believes that the Estrades and neighbouring Caribou deposits are two parts of a cluster of deposits in the area—which is very common with VMS systems. The upcoming gravity survey likely will corroborate the IP and MT anomalies identified by the Titan survey and may also point to more targets, especially since the gravity survey will encompass a far larger area of the Estrades camp. All those copper-rich stringers at Newiska indicate a big plumbing system that may lead Galway to another sizable deposit.” cites Mike Sutton, V.P. Exploration for Galway Metals.
Updated Resource Expected in Third Quarter
Galway has continued drilling at Estrades in an effort to expand the existing resource (Figure 4). Total drill results reported to date since the acquisition of Estrades in August 2016 is 13,484 metres in 22 holes plus three wedges (in addition to GWM18-NK-01 at Newiska—501 metres). 10 drill holes, and 2 extensions of holes (7,214 metres), have not been released and are awaiting assays at Estrades and 5 holes (2,191 metres) are pending from Newiska. The company has been successful, with drilling located outbound from existing resources returning intersections such as:
72.5 g/t Au over 1.6 metres (true width = 1.0m) in Hole GWM-17E-01,
7.4% Cu over 1.9 m (TW = 1.2m) in Hole GWM-17E-05,
5.1% Cu and 62.0 g/t Ag over 1.65 m (TW = 1.2m), including 12.9% Cu and 159.0 g/t Ag over 0.55 m (TW width = 0.4m), in hole GWM-17E-04, and
22.4 g/t Au, 199.3 g/t Ag, 10.4% Zn and 2.0% Pb over 1.6 m (TW=0.8m), in Hole GWM-17E-16.
The Company has also been successful at drilling newly identified zones, with intersections returned such as:
2.2 g/t Au, 181.0 g/t Ag and 28.5% Zn over 3.3 m (2.1m TW), plus 190.7 g/t Ag and 18.6% Zn over 2.6 m (1.7m TW), plus 5.7 g/t Au and 43.2 g/t Ag over 2.6 m (unknown TW), plus 4.7 g/t Au, 67.5 g/t Ag, 4.9% Zn, 2.1% Cu and 1.0% Pb over 1.8m (1.1m TW) in GWM-17E-27,
5.2 g/t Au, 198.7 g/t Ag, 15.7% Zn and 1.3% Pb over 1.5 m (0.8 m TW), plus 2.3 g/t Au, 65.7 g/t Ag and 12.6% Zn over 2.1 m (1.2 m TW) in GWM-17E-24,
6.9 g/t Au, 78.5 g/t Ag and 1.7% Zn over 6.4 m (4.4m TW) in GWM-18E-31, and
1.1 g/t Au, 95.2 g/t Ag and 4.2% Zn over 17.7 m (including 1.7 g/t Au, 190.9 g/t Ag, 9.7% Zn and 1.3% Cu over 4.5 m, and 1.0 g/t Au, 147.6 g/t Ag and 8.3% Zn over 2.0 m) (unknown TW) in GWM-17E-08.
The priority was to drill off gaps in the 1.8 km long resource to create more resources along this sheet of vertical mineralization.
On August 18, 2016, Galway published a NI 43-101 compliant Estrades resource estimate (Table 1), which included Indicated Resources of 518,000 ounces at 12.4 g/t gold equivalent (or 652,000,000 lbs at 22.8% zinc equivalent), plus Inferred Resources of 290,000 ounces at 7.4 g/t gold equivalent (or 366,000,000 lbs at 13.6% zinc equivalent) (refer to Galway’s website at www.galwaymetalsinc.com for details on the Estrades resource estimate). The Estrades project was previously mined via a 200 metre deep ramp, with production in 1990-91 totaling 174,946 tonnes grading 12.9% Zn, 6.4 g/t Au, 1.1% Cu and 172.3 g/t Ag.
Galway is planning to release an updated resource in the next few months, taking into account new drilling results conducted since the 2016 resource.

Toronto, Ontario – April 24, 2018 – PJX Resources Inc.’s (“PJX”) is pleased to announce that geological and geophysical data define vectors to a potential Sullivan Type massive sulphide (zinc-lead-silver) target on its DD Property, located approximately 35 kilometres southwest of Cranbrook, BC. See PJX’s website for additional information.
“Historical drilling adjacent to the DD Property define geological and geochemical vectors for a potential Sullivan-type system, which increase toward the DD Property,” states Dave Pighin, PGeo for PJX Resources. “The Sullivan deposit occurs at a geological time called the Sullivan Horizon. The thickness, alteration and anomalous zinc-lead concentrations of the Sullivan Horizon progressively increases in intensity the closer holes are drilled to the DD Property. A similar increase in thickness, alteration and anomalous zinc-lead concentrations in the Sullivan Horizon occurs in proximity to the Sullivan Deposit.”
“The Magnetotelluric (MT) geophysical survey carried out by Quantec Geoscience on the DD Property has defined a MT anomaly that appears to coincide with the anticipated depth of the favourable Sullivan Horizon,” states the President and CEO of PJX, John Keating. “The Sullivan deposit contained iron sulphides that could be detected by an MT survey and cause an MT anomaly. The MT anomaly on the DD Property occurs on two widely spaced lines, 700 metres apart, and is open to the north and south. The DD Property MT anomaly is at a depth and a size that supports the potential for a Sullivan Type target.”
LAKEWOOD, COLO. — General Moly Inc. reported March 1 that has identified a potential high-grade, copper-silver exploration target along with a significant zinc mineralized area at the Mt. Hope Project site, southeast of the Mt. Hope’s molybdenum deposit in central Nevada.
A review of historic drill results and a geophysical survey of Mt. Hope form the basis to commence a robust geologic review and further evaluation via a new 2018 exploration program, focused primarily on a high-grade copper-silver target, subject to further financing.
The Mt. Hope molybdenum project is 21 miles north of Eureka and has approximately 65 percent of engineering completed with no current engineering work in progress, while it is undergoing final phases of permitting to reobtain its water permits and record of decision. The company also wholly owns the Liberty Project, a molybdenum and copper property in central Nevada. Molybdenum is a metallic element used primarily as an alloy agent in steel manufacturing and in the chemical and petrochemical industries.
Because of the copper-silver target and zinc mineralization, General Moly undertook a high-intensity, ground-based induced polarization 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 copper-silver target.
Toronto, Ontario – March 05, 2018 – PJX Resources Inc. (“PJX”) is pleased to announce that Teck Resources Limited (“Teck”) has completed a Magnetotelluric (MT) geophysical survey which identified a conductive anomaly in a geological environment favourable to host a Sullivan Type deposit on the DD Property located in the Cranbrook area of British Columbia.
The MT survey carried out by Quantec Geoscience for Teck has defined a MT anomaly that appears to coincide with the anticipated depth of the Sullivan horizon. The anomaly occurs on the DD Property within a sedimentary basin called the Panda Basin that is geologically similar to the Sullivan Basin hosting the Sullivan deposit located about 45 km to the north. Teck is assessing the MT target for drilling and is in the process of applying for the relevant permits.
“Historical drilling by other companies in the Panda Basin indicates that the Sullivan time sedimentary horizon that hosts the Sullivan deposit increases significantly in thickness and anomalous zinc-lead mineralization the closer drilling gets to the DD Property”, states Dave Pighin, PGeo for PJX Resources. “This increasing thickness is similar to what occurs at the Sullivan Deposit in the Sullivan Basin. The Sullivan horizon is approximately 2 m thick at about 8 km from the Sullivan deposit and increases to over 60 m thick at the deposit. The thickness of the Sullivan time horizon in the Panda Basin is much greater than the Sullivan Basin. A series of 4 widely spaced historical holes drilled in the Panda Basin show that the Sullivan time horizon is 43m thick with 3.5m of anomalous zinc and lead mineralization at about 5.5km from the DD Property (Drill Hole L80-1). The Sullivan horizon and anomalous mineralization increase in thickness the closer drilling gets to the DD Property. The closest hole (IR07-1) drilled adjacent to the DD Property intersected over 194m of Sullivan horizon with 36m of geochemically anomalous zinc and lead.”
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.”
