(CTEC.V) Feb. 12, 2019 – Central Timmins Exploration Corp. has announced the continuation of its initial drill program in the Timmins camp, which began in late-October 2018. In the short term, CTEC plans on taking advantage of the winter diamond drilling season in Timmins with a work program of six to nine holes in three townships: Deloro, Mountjoy and Jamieson, all within the city limits of Timmins.
Most of the mines in Timmins have been found by prospectors sampling outcrop. The remaining prospective areas are covered by an average of 25 metres of lake-bottom clays, sand or glacial till plus infrastructure such as roads, houses and power lines. CTEC has a modern data base of 6,000 MMI geochemical samples, and they along with extensive geophysical data have helped identify areas that are prospective for gold or copper-zinc mineralization.
When the MMI anomalies are overlain on the airborne geophysical maps of the individual townships, they highlight a range of airborne magnetic and/or electromagnetic anomalies that have never been drill-tested. In total, CTEC has identified over 25 drill targets.
“We are just starting our drill-testing of gold and base metal targets in the Timmins camp,” said CTEC president, CEO and director Charles Gryba. “Given that many recent discoveries have been on brownfield sites in old camps, we are excited by our prospects. Our MMI programs have identified many interesting targets and CTEC hopes to drill-test at least 15 of these targets in 2019 with both winter and summer drill programs envisioned.”
CTEC is an early-stage Canadian-based junior exploration company with property exclusively in the Porcupine mining district, and secondly mainly within the city limits of Timmins in the northeastern region of Ontario.Disclaimer: ALWAYS DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH and consult with a licensed investment professional before making an investment.
