Jaxon Provides Update on Netalzul Mt
September 20, 2021, Vancouver, Canada - Jaxon Mining Inc. (“Jaxon”) or (the “Company”) (TSX.V: JAX, FSE: 0U31, OTC: JXMNF) is pleased to provide an update on the Netalzul Mt project near Hazelton, BC. The Company is pleased to announce the completion of a DC resistivity/induced polarization (IP) survey and a short interval magnetotelluric (MT) survey utilizing the Volterra Acquisition System, conducted by SJ Geophysics Ltd. (www.sjgeophysics.com). The Company has also completed LiDAR data acquisition, conducted by Eagle Mapping Ltd of Port Coquitlam, BC (www.eaglemapping.com). Results from the surveys are pending (Figure 1); the data is being processed and will be integrated into the Company’s geological models. In addition, as of September 16, eight diamond drilling holes have been completed for a total of 2,258 metres at the Netalzul Mt project.
The 3DIP and MT survey, acquired on 24.5 line km along 11 lines, was conducted from August 28 to September 15, over a ~5.3 sq km area of challenging mountainous terrain. The survey was designed to map key geological structures and features associated with known high-grade multiple polymetallic veining mineralization and deep porphyry Cu-Mo mineralization on the property. The data is expected to provide more structural and vectoring information, controlling the near surface mineralization and delineating the source porphyry system. The survey will provide valuable information about the geology and mineralization at depth to assist with further exploration on the property. The data is currently being processed and modelled in 3D at SJ Geophysics’ office in Delta, BC.
The LiDAR survey was conducted from August 31 to September 1. A Cessna 206 using a Riegl Q1560 LiDAR system was flown over the Netalzul Mt project area.
- Data collection took place between 9,500 and 11,000 feet above sea level
- 428 photos were collected over 145 line kilometers @ < 20cm GSD
- Phase One IXM-rs150F camera was used
- 25 total strips or lines
- LiDAR > 8 pulses per metre
The data is now being processed at Eagle Mapping’s office in Port Coquitlam, BC.
2021 Drilling Program Update
Eight diamond drill holes have been completed at Netalzul Mt for a total of 2,285 metres at four pads, focused on the Daisy South Adit Zone, Daisy Central Zone, and Daisy North Contact Zone (Figure 2). Drill cores from four holes have been cut, sampled and submitted for analysis at MSALabs in Langley, BC. Additional drill cores are currently being logged. Assay results are expected to be returned from October to December of 2021. Initial highlights of the drilling program include:
- Confirmation of high-grade Ag-Cu-Au-Sb-Pb-Zn-polymetallic quartz veining mineralization at all three zones: Daisy South Adit Zone, Daisy Central Zone and Daisy North Contact Zone (Figure 2). Results from portable XRF analysis confirm the presence of tetrahedrite, chalcopyrite, stibnite, galena and sphalerite minerals (Figure 3).
- Multiple narrow disseminated sulfide porphyry monzonite dykes, measuring from several centimetres up to ten metres, have been intercepted in five of eight total holes, predominantly at the Daisy North Contact Zone and Daisy Central Zone area (Figures 2 and 4). The presence of these monzonite dykes in both drilling holes and surface outcrops indicate the existence of deep porphyry intrusion within the central-north area of the Bulkley Granite intrusion.
Mr. John King Burns, Chairman and CEO of Jaxon Mining, commented,“We are pleased to have completed the 3DIP and LiDAR surveys at Netalzul Mt. The data from both surveys, once processed and integrated into our geological models, will provide more controls over the near surface mineralization and our deeper porphyry targets. Our models indicate that the swarms of monzonite dykes are associated with the centre of porphyry system which we have targeted at depth below surface.”
“The Phase One drilling program continues but with snow already accumulating at Netalzul Mt, we will modify our program to protect our crews from the impact of the early winter weather. The slow return of assay results from the labs have also curtailed the advance of our results-driven drilling programs. Assay results are expected to be available in eight to twelve weeks. We are still on track to publish an outline of a maiden resource model for Netalzul Mt in Q1 of 2022.”
