Teuton Resources Corp. (“TUO”) (“Teuton”) is pleased to announce that it has retained Aeroquest Limited of Milton , Ontario to fly a helicopter-borne geophysical survey over the Company’s Del Norte property, located 27 km east of Stewart , British Columbia . The program will use state-of-the-art time domain (AEROTEM II) EM and aeromagnetic instrumentation and is scheduled to start within a week.
The survey is expected to enhance geological understanding of the northwesterly trending belt of volcanic and sedimentary rocks that underlies the property and which hosts numerous mineralized occurrences along its 10 km length. The most explored of these occurrences, the K-LG vein breccia system, lies in the northern portion of the property and has had fifty-two holes drilled into it to date.
A key area to be tested during the airborne survey is in and around the Horatio zone, where a float train of massive sulfide boulders (pyrite-sphalerite-galena) located in 2003 led to the discovery of abundant lensoidal shears and replacement bodies carrying lead-zinc-silvergold mineralization. Fifteen float and outcrop samples taken from the area averaged 0.651 oz/ton gold and 5.2 oz/ton silver.
Although minor follow-up prospecting in 2004 failed to identify any significant strike extent to the mineralized lenses, a recent review of old regional data has shown that a 1983 Dighem airborne survey undertaken partly over the Del Norte property outlined two strong conductive trends in close proximity to the Horatio zone. One of these shows 4 sequential conductors along four flight lines, covering a distance of 1.2 km. At the time, a substantial portion of this would have been covered by snow or ice, which has since receded. The 2005 AeroTem survey will fly this area in much greater detail, to determine whether the 1983 conductors are signaling a more substantial mineralized body or bodies than that determined by the 2003-4 prospecting. If these conductors are determined to be caused by gold-bearing massive sulfide mineralization similar to that discovered in the Horatio zone, they would constitute an outstanding exploration target.
