Jourdan Receives Compiled, Levelled and Stitched High Resolution Airborne Magnetic Surveys at Dissimieux Lake Phosphate Property
June 12, 2014 (Source: FSC Wire) — JOURDAN RESOURCES INC. (TSX-V: JOR) (“JOURDAN” or the “Company”) (www.jourdan.ca) is pleased to announce that it has completed a compilation of historical airborne geophysical surveys on its 100% owned Dissimieux Lake Phosphate Property, in the Province of Québec, Canada.
The airborne surveys include recently published Quebec Ministry of Natural Resources levelled airborne magnetic survey map set (DP 2012-03) as well as several airborne surveys filed for assessment work by public companies from 1998 through 2013. Surveys used as part of the compilation included information from reports GM58061 (Outokumpu Mines Limited), GM65422 (Argex Silver Capital Inc.), GM67495 (Nevado Resources Inc.), GM 66091 (St-Georges Platinum & Base Metals Ltd.), and GM66599 (Vale Exploration Canada Inc.). These surveys were designed to test for Fe-Ti and Ni-Cu-PGE mineralization. The association of these styles of mineralization, and their proximity in the layered ultramafic intrusives has provided Jourdan with datasets that have not been previously evaluated for phosphate mineralization. With the growing knowledge Jourdan has at Dissimieux Lake, this compiled, levelled and stitched dataset, all completed by Paterson Grant & Watson Ltd. (PGW), provides a valuable exploration tool for Jourdan to use to validate current exploration models for phosphate mineralization and plan future exploration.
Based on recent and historical mapping and sampling, completed by Jourdan, previous companies working in the area, as well as sampling by the Quebec Ministry of Natural Resources, the compiled airborne magnetics demonstrate a series of sub-parallel magnetic highs that generally trend south-west to north-east towards the La Blache Anorthosite (see Map 1) that host the Hervieux East, Hervieux West, and Farrell-Taylor Deposits. This strong trend is disrupted in the northern area of the Dissimieux claims where the magnetic trends are dislocated and the magnetic highs trend north to south for a 5 to 10 km distance before apparently joining the La Blache Anorthosite, or running parallel to the magnetic highs within.
The magnetic highs are concurrent with surface mineralization that has been sampled and or mapped at the Dissimieux Lake Phosphate Project as well as with drill hole intersections of mineralization. The magnetics have been used in conjunction with all sampling; drilling and surface mapping to produce a map of known and interpreted phosphate rich zones (see Map 2) It appears that some of the highest grade phosphate results received to date come from the area of disruption where the magnetic trends become north-south trending.
Based on the compiled magnetics and the current sample density, several new target areas have been identified and will be sampled and mapped in the future. The location of samples and drilled areas relative to the magnetics can been seen on Map 3.
“Dissimieux Lake has a very large phosphate footprint, with mineralization found on surface over many kilometres” states Jourdan President and CEO Michael Dehn. “These zones potentially run continuously for more than 30 km in strike length as seen on the maps.”
“This newly compiled data provides the Jourdan team with excellent data for future exploration planning” states Jourdan VP Exploration Stephen Wallace. “Our near term goals are to complete additional drilling that would allow the generation of a meaningful 43-101 resource calculation on the property, as well as to follow up on higher grade surface phosphate mineralization sampled in the fall of 2013.”
