Jaxon Completes Ground Magnetic Survey, Highlights Two Magnetic Anomalies At Red Springs And Discovers Two Historical Artisanal Adits At Netalzul Mountain
August 18, 2020, Vancouver, Canada - Jaxon Mining Inc. (TSXV: JAX, FSE: OU31, OTC: JXMNF) ("Jaxon" or the "Company”) is pleased to report completion of a targeted ground magnetic survey at Northwest Cirque at Red Springs AOI and the delivery of rock samples, taken from Red Springs AOI and Netalzul Mountain AOI, for assaying.
Results from the ground magnetic survey, IP survey, rock sampling and surface prospecting completed to date, all confirm a strong relation between the diorite porphyry intrusion and tourmaline breccia/veins. The Company’s conceptual geological model indicates a potential connection, at depth, between the Backbone quartz tourmaline breccia mineralization zone at Main Cirque (https://bit.ly/3iNy9jn) and the two diorite porphyry intrusives discovered at Northwest Cirque earlier in 2020.
Targeted Ground Magnetic Survey at Northwest Cirque, Red Springs
The purpose of the ground magnetic survey was to collect high-resolution ground magnetic field data from a ~2 km2 area covering the Northwest Cirque and down valley areas (Figure 1). The survey closely examined the IP anomalies seen in the previous surveys and several other specific features, using closer 100-metre line spacing and 20-metre data collection point intervals, at accessible topographic areas. The survey spanned the surface expression of the tourmaline breccia zone/pipe at Northwest Cirque, the contact zone between hornfels and two diorite porphyry intrusions, and the nearby granites and basalts intrusions. Additional data points were collected at the contact zone and diorite porphyry area. The survey was conducted using three GSM-19 proton magnetometers, manufactured in Canada. The observed parameter is the total magnetic field strength T.
The 2020 data has defined a large, negative MG anomaly (MG 1) at the southeast corner of the survey area (Figure 2). This anomaly potentially represents a large demagnetized diorite porphyry (D1) stock which is currently covered by talus and ice tiles. It may also potentially connect with the Backbone tourmaline breccia mineralization zone at Main Cirque, from the northeast area beyond the Mt Seaton ridge. The small negative MG anomaly (MG 2), defined in this survey, may be related to another diorite porphyry intrusion (D2), however, this has yet to be confirmed. The Company expects to release results from the processed MG data and an updated geological model in the second half of August.
Rock Sampling Program at Red Springs and Netalzul Mountain
70 rock samples were collected from the Red Springs and Netalzul Mountain AOIs (Figure 3). All samples have been delivered to MSALABS in Langley, B.C., Canada for assaying and other rock analysis.
Historical Artisanal Adits
While conducting rock sampling and surface prospecting work at the Netalzul Mountain AOI, two artisanal adits were discovered (Figure 4). At Adit 1 (Figure 5), quartz veins with massive sulfides mineralization zones up to 50 m long and 2 m wide were mapped and sampled. At Adit 2 (Figure 6), the team mapped and sampled up to 50 m long and 10 m wide quartz veins zone with semi-massive sulfides mineralization. Additional surface prospecting, including soil sampling and a channel sampling program, will be conducted on both adit areas.
