- High-resolution magnetic survey helps delineate and extend early structures known to control gold occurrences in the area.
- 25 high-priority VTEM conductors identified with potential for VMS deposits.
- On the basis of the surveys the Company has acquired more strategic ground through staking.
KINGSTON, ON / ACCESSWIRE / May 20, 2020 / Delta Resources Limited ('Delta' or the 'Company') (TSXV:DLTA) is pleased to provide an update on its interpretation of geophysical data from a 549 line-kilometre, helicopter-borne VTEM survey and a 722 line-kilometre high-resolution drone-magnetic survey over the Delta-2 property in Chibougamau, Quebec. The VTEM and magnetic surveys were completed in February and March 2020, respectively. In addition, Delta acquired the data for a 692 line-kilometre VTEM survey over the northeastern part of the property; which was previously flown in 2012 by a now defunct company and the data had never been interpreted. Together, these surveys cover an area of 152 square kilometres.
André Tessier, President and CEO of Delta Resources Limited commented as follows:
'We've now covered the whole Delta-2 property with state-of-the-art geophysical methods. These new methods allowed us to refine our geological interpretation of the property and highlight its high potential for gold and polymetallic economic mineralization. Our exploration team is excited to start field work to ground proof these anomalies, leading to a drill program. It's an exciting time at Delta.'
Michel Chapdelaine, Vice-President Exploration at Delta commented as follows:
'The high-resolution VTEM and drone-magnetic surveys are a game-changer at Delta-2. Both surveys allowed us to refine our geological model, better understand the distribution of gold occurrences and define targets to a level that no one has done before in the area.'
In the southern portion of the property, where there is excellent potential for magmatic-hydrothermal gold mineralization, the high-resolution magnetic survey allowed the Company to identify several early structures related to the emplacement of the La Dauversiere pluton. These early structures are known to control five (5) gold occurrences which have already been identified and include the R-14 Gold Prospect.
In the northern portion of the property, where the Company believes there is a high potential for gold-rich volcanogenic massive sulphide ('VMS') deposits, the new VTEM surveys identified at least 77 conductors. Twenty-five (25) of these conductors have been identified as high-priority based on criteria such as strike length, intensity, association to magnetic highs and location at, or near, the geological contact that is known to be favourable for the occurrence of VMS deposits in the region. That same horizon hosts the Lemoine Mine, a past producer with 757,585 tonnes grading 9.52% Zn, 4.18% Cu, 4.56 g/t Au and 82.26 g/t Ag. Of the 25 anomalies initially identified as high-priority, 19 are brand new and have never been drill-tested, while the remaining 6 were previously known, but deemed to have been incorrectly, or insufficiently tested.

Ground Acquisition at Delta-2
Following its new interpretation of the area, Delta has added, through staking, an additional 30 claims, covering 1,669 hectares. With these additional claims, the Delta-2 property now covers 146 square kilometres.
