Calgary, Alberta, Oct. 10, 2022 – Long Range Exploration Corporation (“LREX” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that Ireland-based Murphy Geological Services [MGS] has been commissioned to undertake a structural study of its Simms Ridge Property in north-western Newfoundland, Canada. This work will involve the processing and structural interpretation of European Space Agency [Sentinel-2] satellite imagery for district coverage at 1:50,000 scale combined with the acquisition and interpretation of high-resolution WorldView-2 imagery for a more detailed analysis of the property at 1:10:000 scale. The draft report is expected by year-end with an announcement of the results in early January 2023.
Darrell Brown, Chief Executive Officer of LREX, commented, “We are excited to get this study underway as it offers a different approach where the structural work is done ahead of more traditional ground sampling programs. Furthermore, given the benefit of the airborne geophysics program conducted in Q1-22, the combined data sets will provide an early benchmark for our follow-up in the 2023 field season”.
Colin Davies, Director & VP Exploration of LREX, commented, “MGS will deliver in digital and GIS format, a better understanding of the structural controls across this part of Newfoundland, detailed fault kinematics (which are known to host potential gold mineralisation), an interpreted cross-section and target generation table for follow-up beyond what is already known historically. This study will then be used as guidance on the ground for soil sampling and geochemical work (planned for Q1-23) over the initial areas of interest where previous airborne geophysics (flown in Q1-22) identified anomalous targets for a proposed maiden drilling campaign scheduled for later in 2023”.
