Miramont Announces First Phase of Exploration Program
April 4, 2017 - Vancouver, British Columbia – Miramont Resources Corp. (the “Company” or “Miramont”) (CSE: MONT) is pleased to announce the planning of the first phase of its exploration program on the Midas Gold Property (the “Property”) in Northwestern Ontario.
The exploration program will be comprised of prospecting, geological mapping and sampling.
The prospecting will focus on expanding the known gold showings and evaluating potential gold bearing structures. Geological mapping and sampling of the cut grid and the previously stripped areas will be completed to assist in determining structural and lithological relationships of the known gold showings. The pulp samples from the 2013 diamond drill program will provide a sampling base to create a geochemical database. This geochemical database will be integrated into the results of the prospecting, sampling and geological mapping to direct the selection of future targets.
The Property consists of 10 staked claims (118 units) covering 1,600 hectares and is situated approximately 50 kilometres northeast of the town of Wawa in northern Ontario. The Property is road accessible and lies 20 kilometres southeast of Richmont Mines' Island Gold Mine complex and Argonaut Gold's Magino Gold Project.
Sporadic exploration has been carried out in the Property area, beginning in the 1940's, with most work completed from the late 1970's to 1990 and 2011 to 2013. Past exploration has included surface sampling, trenching, airborne and ground geophysics and diamond drilling.
Mr. Garry Clark, P. Geo. of Clark Exploration Consulting, a "qualified person" as defined in National Instrument 43-101 - Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects, has reviewed and approved the scientific and technical information in this press release as it pertains to the Property.
Miramont is engaged in the acquisition, exploration and development of mineral properties. Its current focus is to conduct the proposed exploration program on the Midas Gold Property in Canada, along with continuing to identify and potentially acquire additional property interests, assess their potential and engage in exploration activities.
