VANCOUVER, June 17, 2020, Fancamp Exploration Ltd. (“Fancamp” or the “Company”) (TSXV: FNC) wishes to report that its 100% owned, 815 hectare “Dileo Lake VMS Property”, located 20 km southwest of the past producing Troilus copper gold mine within the same structural and lithological trend, is scheduled to be reexamined and retested by trenching and prospecting together with the reprocessing, digitization and modelling of the extensive Noranda Mines database, developed during the years 1992 to 1996, under an option agreement at the time with Fancamp. This work included geophysical and geological surveys, surface trenching and sampling and 3,335 meters of drilling in nine holes.
The Company is looking forward to testing widely recognized artificial intelligence software to possibly identify features previously overlooked and yet critical in the discovery process. In the present context, Noranda’s most significant discovery was a copper gold occurrence found in the Summer 1994. It was not considered significant at the time, given its size, but the grades speak for themselves. Initially three grabs returned 16.6 gpt Au, 4.94% Cu, and 38.7 gpt Ag; 13.1 gpt Au, 0.71% Cu and 9.3 gpt Ag; trace Au, 2.585% Cu and 19.3 gpt Ag. Subsequent limited mechanical trenching resulted in two channels, 12.63 gpt Au over 0.4 m and 578 ppb Au over 0.4m (GM53927). The narrow quartz vein occurs in a strong northeast trending shear zone up to 4 m wide and in the trench about 25m in length, in a tectonized gabbro basalt unit. A parallel northeast trending shear was noted on the edge of the north part of the trench zone but evidently was not sampled. The zone occurs in an essentially unexamined, marked airborne magnetic low, traceable for some 3.5 km on the property.
The Noranda work itself was largely based on a VMS type base metal deposit model. The original discovery was made back in 1962 through prospecting. These showings were trenched, mapped and drilled by Noranda. The main showing consists of three zinc rich massive sulphide lenses within a strongly sheared and tectonized 2-4 meter horizon of felsic tufs. Selected surface grab samples returned up to 5.42% Cu, 14.2% Zn and 63.7 gpt Ag. Noranda drill hole LD-95-06 intersected 3.7% Cu and 4.2% Zn over 0.35 m. 1.9 km further NE, drill hole LD-95-05 intersected 3.7% Cu, 6.2%Zn and 64 gpt Ag over 0.5 m.
The on site program is being performed by Mark Fekete,P.Geo of Breakaway Exploration Management Inc., of Val D’Or, scheduled to begin this week.
