iMetal Resources, Inc. (TSX.V: IMR) has completed a magnetic survey via drone at its 565-hectare Shining Tree block, located 3.75 kilometers from the Gowganda West property. This survey encompassed 20 separate flights over two days. Chief Executive Officer Saf Dhillon remarked: “Exploration efforts in the Shining Tree District are currently underway by several companies in search of gold due to the Aris Gold Corp. Juby deposits. Early survey results and initial prospecting have sparked our interest in the Shining Tree claim group. We look forward to furthering our investigations in 2023.”
Research conducted at Shining Tree has been relatively sparse, particularly on metal. As part of the drone survey, initial observations and sampling of outcrops occurred, showing quartz veins in multiple places. An initial assessment of the drone magnetics confirms the north-south orientation of the geological formations in the area. Once the conclusion of the interpretation is reached, as well as the results from mapping and grabbing samples, a plan for future exploration programs will be developed.
