With crew and equipment now en route, Phase II exploration begins next week at Equitas Resources’ (TSXV:EQT) Garland nickel-copper-cobalt project in Labrador. Located 30 kilometres south of Voisey’s Bay, the property underwent VTEM Plus airborne surveys earlier this year that found nine areas of anomalous conductivity prospective for Voisey’s-style mineralization.
The season starts with field work including mapping and prospecting, up to 30 line-kilometres of large loop UTEM 3 surveys and up to 4,000 metres of drilling.
Most of the conductive targets lie at the very limit of, or significantly deeper than detection limits of historic geophysics, Equitas stated. The company’s programs constitute the first modern exploration of the 25,050-hectare property, which had previously been fragmented by separate ownership.
