Brunswick Exploration Ltd. recently announced that the strike length of the high-grade mineralization zone at its Mirage Project has been extended to 600 meters. According to the company, the extension was discovered from its recently completed MR-4 diamond drill hole beneath the known potential in the project.
Located within the Municipal District of Municipio de Valparaíso, Chihuahua, Mexico, the “Mirage Deposit” on the project currently covers an area of 2 hectares. The deposit reportedly features “overall wall rock alteration related to the presence of strongly altered, brecciated, and structurally offset granodiorite that hosts veining, shearing, and stockwork sericite and quartz veins,” among other geological features.
Brunswick Exploration Ltd reportedly tapped an interdisciplinary team to carry out exploration work at the Mirage project in the early part of 2020. Prior to the recent discovery, the company had already identified “high-grade gold-silver mineralization at surface and 45 meters of 0.70 g/t AuEq in MR-3 and 8.45 meters of 4.18 g/t AuEq in MR-1.”
While Brunswick Exploration Ltd has been investing in expanding its exploration initiatives, it has also been focusing on its well-known Wakefield, Lac Canard, and Val-d’Or joint venture assets. These projects are reportedly backed by solid technical and geological reports, and Brunswick believes they have the potential to yield significant returns in the long term.
The company is also planning follow-up exploration activities at Mirage in the next few months. It is reportedly going to commence further surface mapping and sampling, as well as additional drilling to further extend the strike length of the mineralization zone. It is expected that these activities will bear fruit in the near future.
