Satori Resources has announced that it has received the necessary permits to start drilling at its 100%-owned Tartan Lake Gold Mine Project near Flin Flon, Manitoba in Canada.
Preparatory work on the access road has commenced, drilling tenders are out for quote, and technical staff is being engaged to supervise a 3,200 metre diamond drill program targeting the down plunge continuation of the Main Zone vein system.
Satori plans to apply a modern, systematic approach to exploration at the Tartan Lake Gold Mine Project. In 2020, the Company collected and reviewed the geophysical data from the 1980s in order to isolate geophysical signatures coincident with known mineralization. Processing of the historic data with contemporary techniques has generated new drilling targets which show potential for additional high-grade mineralization across numerous shear zones that transect the property. Therefore, 500 metres of diamond drilling is also planned to test targets within 1,000 metres of the historic mine site.
It has been approximately 23 years since the past producing Tartan Lake Gold Mine Project has seen a significant drill program. Over 50 linear kilometres of shear zones have been mapped throughout the claim package, but the majority of historical exploration focused on 3-5 kilometres of shear zones in the immediate area of the former producing Tartan Lake mine.
The Company believes that in addition to the potential to increase the mineral resource proximal to the former producing mine, there are excellent opportunities for additional discoveries given the unexplored extent of the shear zones that host the known mineralization.
