October 30, 2023 – Toronto, Ontario – Palladium One Mining Inc. (TSX-V: PDM, OTCQB: NKORF, FRA: 7N11) (the “Company” or “Palladium One”) is pleased to announce it has discovered a large MT resistivity anomaly on the Tyko I property (Figure 1 and 2) which forms part of the larger Tyko Nickel – Copper Project, in Ontario, Canada. The MT resistivity anomaly is coincident with the high-grade West Pickle Zone and extends eastward toward the RJ Zone suggesting that they form one continuous mineralizing system.


  • 2023 diamond drill program is underway at Tyko
  • A 1,600 meter long MT resistivity anomaly has been discovered which extends from the high-grade West Pickle Zone toward the interpreted Chonolith / Feeder Dyke structure
  • MT Anomaly coincident with multiple Cu and Ni in soil anomalies
  • Mag, MT and soil anomalies suggest West Pickle and RJ Zones form part of one large mineralizing system

President and CEO, Derrick Weyrauch commented, “We are very pleased to announce positive results from the first MT survey on the Tyko Project that indicate a strong MT resistivity anomaly extending from our high-grade West Pickle zone toward multiple copper and nickel in-soil anomalies associated with the interpreted Chonolith / Feeder Dyke target. Tyko’s fall diamond drill program has commenced and is currently on track.”

The MT survey represents the first deep penetrating geophysical survey to be conducted on Tyko. The survey was undertaken by Quantec Geoscience using the SPARTAN MT system which has the potential to detect both high-grade massive nickel sulphide, as that found at the West Pickle zone, and blebby to disseminated sulphide as found at the RJ zone. The MT survey targeted a highly prospective strike length of 2,800 meters (Figure 2) between the West Pickle and RJ Zones covering several highly anomalous Cu and Ni soil anomalies and associated magnetic highs (see press release August 22, 2023).

Drilling Intersects a 55.4m Sulphide
Zone at Lynn Lake Nickel Project

Success in the first drill hole testing a newly identified pipe-like
geophysical anomaly at the priority Fraser Lake Complex

Key Highlights
Innovative geophysical survey defined several pipe-like conductive bodies linking
into areas of drill-defined nickel-copper-cobalt sulphide mineralisation within the
Fraser Lake Complex at Lynn Lake.
The initial drill hole of a two-hole program testing one of these anomalies
intersected a 55.4 metres (downhole) sulphide zone on the margin of an interpreted
mafic/ultramafic intrusive pipe.
The targeted geophysical anomaly extends from near surface to at least 700 metres
below surface.
Samples have been submitted for laboratory analysis with results to be released
when available – further drilling planned, subject to results.


Corazon’s Managing Director, Mr. Brett Smith, stated: “The most significant outcome from this drilling is proving that
our new geophysical techniques can identify the targeted magmatic sulphides, as well as these late, metal-rich
ultramafic pipes.

A magnetotelluric (MT) study across the Red Lake greenstone belt of the western Superior craton, Canada, images a 50-km-long north-dipping conductor (<20 Ω·m) at 20–25 km
depth and subvertical conductors spatially correlated with crustal-scale shear zones and
large orogenic gold deposits. The conductors are interpreted to be the conductivity signature
of the deep crustal source of the auriferous fluids and pathways of the orogenic gold system. The geophysical results, supported by existing geochemical and fluid inclusion studies,
suggest that the Au- and CO2-rich fluids responsible for gold mineralization were released
by devolatilization of supracrustal rocks underthrust to mid- to lower-crustal levels during
subduction. This MT study links shallow gold mineralization to a deep crustal source region,
demonstrating the connection between a crustal suture zone and the formation of orogenic
gold deposits in an Archean greenstone belt.

American Copper Development Completes 134 line-km Titan 160 DCIP and MT Survey Over the Lordsburg Property, New Mexico

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – January 18, 2023) – American Copper Development Corporation (CSE: ADCX) (“ACDC” or the “‎‎Company”) is pleased to report preliminary results from a 134 line-km 3D Titan 160 DC resistivity/induced polarization (DCIP) and Magnetotellurics (MT) survey. The survey was completed across 16 lines (13 N-S and 3 E-W) by Quantec Geoscience over the Company’s flagship Lordsburg property in southwestern New Mexico (see map in appendix).

The purpose of the survey is to provide property-wide deep chargeability, resistivity, and magnetotelluric information at the Lordsburg property with the intent to help identify porphyry and/or skarn style mineralization targets. The DCIP provides information to depths of 700m and greater with the MT resistivity providing information to depths of up to 2km. Quantec conducted this high-resolution survey between August 2022 and January 2023. The Company is currently working with our contractors on 3D data inversions of both the DCIP and MT surveys and expect to have those results completed by February.



Minto Metals Reports Anomalies And New Exploration Targets From Magnetotellurics Survey

WHITEHORSE, YTDec. 20, 2022 /CNW/ – Minto Metals Corp. (“Minto” or the “Company”) (TSXV: MNTO) is pleased to report results from the 2022 Magnetotellurics survey over the Minto Mine Property.

The Company commissioned Quantec Geoscience Ltd. (“Quantec”) to conduct a SPARTAN MT survey, a deep-penetrating Magnetotellurics (“MT”) survey over the Minto Mine Property (Figure 1). The goal for the MT survey was to extend the geophysical coverage for the Minto Mine Property to depths below the extents of previous geophysical surveys, diamond drilling and current mining infrastructure to assess the potential for additional economic mineralization. Quantec completed the survey, consisting of a total of 184 SPARTAN MT sites (Figure 2), between July 10, 2022 and August 28, 2022 with results received by the Company in late November 2022.

Argentina Lithium Announces Positive Results from Third and Fourth Drill Holes at Rincon West

October 25, 2022

Vancouver, BC / CNW / October 25, 2022 / Argentina Lithium & Energy Corp. (TSX-V: LIT, FSE: OAY3, OTC: PNXLF), (“Argentina Lithium” or the “Company”) reports positive lithium brine values from the third and fourth diamond drill holes at its Rincon West Project in Salta Province, Argentina. The Rincon West project covers 3742.8 hectares of the salar basin, located west and north of the adjacent Rincon Project owned by Rio Tinto. The property is currently permitted for up to 9 exploration drill holes. The fifth exploration hole is currently in final steps to completion. From May 2022 ….

“The TEM surveys suggest that interpreted brine aquifers extend substantially further west and south than indicated by earlier electrical surveys, demonstrating greater potential than expected by the previous owners. We plan to begin drilling in May to test these targets. These new geophysical data allow us to assess potential aquifer quality and depth prior to drilling, which is extremely advantageous for targeting.” stated Miles Rideout, V.P. of Exploration.

The TEM surveys, data modeling and presentation were completed by the Argentinean subsidiary of Toronto-based Quantec Geoscience Ltd., (“Quantec”). Quantec is a recognized leader in the industry, with experience spanning over 40 countries with over 5,000 geophysical projects. Quantec has considerable experience in the provision of qeophysical services for the evaluation of salars in the Puna Region of Argentina.

A total of 190 soundings were completed at 200 metre intervals along six east-west lines and two transecting lines, with a north-south line spacing of between 1400 and 1900 metres (see Figure 1). Data were acquired with a Geonics Ltd. PROTEM System operated in centre-loop sounding mode with 200m transmitter loops. The sounding data were recorded at 2.5 and 25 Hz. repetition rates. The data were modelled with 1-D resistivity-depth inversions, which were compiled as 2D resistivity transects of the project. The maximum depth of investigation varied from 200 metres to as much as 1700 metres below surface.

Viscount Mining TITAN MT Survey Confirms Significantly Large Conductive Anomaly Indicating Likely Porphyry at Silver Cliff, Colorado


  • As verified by Quantec geoscientists, a deposit with this large scale size and this high of a conductivity (extremely low resistivity) is likely explained by a huge system of interconnected mineralized fractures.
  • The main body of the conductive anomaly starts at a depth of ~450m and continues another ~1.5km, maybe deeper (this was the extent of the MT survey depth capability). The length of the anomaly is ~1.4km in the SW-NE direction with a width of at least 700m and an open interpretation to the untested NW. This represents a total volume of over 665,000,000m3 as determined by Quantec.

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – September 22, 2022) – Viscount Mining Corp. (TSXV: VML) (OTCQX: VLMGF) (“Viscount” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce our results of our Titan MT survey on Passiflora in Silver Cliff, Colorado.

During the early summer of 2022, Viscount contracted Quantec Geoscience to perform a five-line TITAN MT survey over the Silver Cliff caldera of the Passiflora target. Quantec is authorized by the Association of Professional Geoscientists of Ontario (PGO) and has acquired many reputable clients such as Newmont Mining, Barrick Gold, Agnico – Eagle Mining, De Beers Consolidated Mines Limited and the Nevada Department of Energy to name a few. The purpose of the survey was to identify conductive areas below the survey surface which could represent metal deposits, or perhaps the presence of a porphyry. As shown by Figure 1 below, each of the five, parallel lines surveyed by Quantec Geoscience were 2.2 kilometers (1.36 miles) in length and separated by 175 meters (574 feet).

Quantec survey crews continue to perform at exemplary standards


Geophysical imaging of the Healy property was achieved with deep-seeing Titan™ IP and MT surveys (induced polarization and magnetotellurics), transecting five kilometers across the three target areas where drilling was conducted. The surveys were carried out towards the end of the field season due to contractor availability. The IP and MT surveys, which imaged up to 800 meters and 4 kilometers depth respectively, support the presence of shallowly dipping, east-verging architecture with mineralisation occurring along low angle thrust faults and steeper cross-cutting fault corridors. Broad zones of disseminated sulfide and strong alteration are well-defined in the chargeability and resistivity data with zones of combined high chargeability and low resistivity (high conductivity) correlating well with mineralised intercepts from the 2021 drill program. The imaging of additional strongly conductive and chargeable zones, between drilled prospects, highlight significant exploration targets which warrant follow-up drill testing.
