In early January 2012, exploration began on the 9000 hectare Black Donald property in Renfrew country, Ontario.
An airborne TDEM survey conducted by Prospectair Geosurveys is currently being flown over Black Donald, and the results from this survey will serve to evaluate the extent of the known occurrences and help in the discovery of new mineralization. The survey has been designed to optimize the response from potential conductors and to discriminate between the various types of conductors. A preliminary test was conducted on the ground using a portable EM instrument.
The Black Donald property immediately surrounds the former Black Donald Mine that has produced a large quantity of high-grade and high purity graphite between 1896 and 1950. Graphite has historically also been reported at several locations on the current claim block and was drill tested in 1982. Black Donald is responsible for 94 percent of the total value of Ontario graphite production.
Results from the airborne survey are expected in January and will form the backbone of the upcoming prospecting, trenching and drilling programs planned for 2012. Orocan Resources hold a 100 percent interest in the Black Donald property.
