MONTRÉAL, QC / ACCESSWIRE / June 29, 2022 / St-Georges Eco-Mining Corp. (CSE:SX)(OTCQB:SXOOF)(FSE:85G1) is pleased to announce that, following three weeks of fieldwork and the completion of approximately 75% of the planned surface exploration campaign, several new pegmatites have been identified on the Company's Notre-Dame Project in Québec.
The Patro zone pegmatite was discovered near the center of the project and is characterized by two to possibly three horizons of 6 to 20 meters wide. The total length is still unknown. The second zone, the Team Zone, is located at the eastern limit of the Company's current claims block. Its average thickness is 2 to 3 meters and, although dislocated, can be traced over a distance of at least 300 meters.
Several pegmatite dikes have been identified at surface by the Company. Eighty samples were taken in the outcrops identified as pegmatite dikes. All the newly discovered dikes crosscut either gneiss or paragneiss. Furthermore, the carbonatite identified by the Québec government during a previous exploration effort in 2021, the "Grand Lac Brochet" rare earth showing, has been resampled by the Company's contracted field geologists and sent to ALS laboratories for assays. The carbonatite horizon is 5 to 10m wide and can be traced over 75 meters of outcrop. The carbonatite seems to be linked to a North-South kilometric prospective structure.
A total of 210 samples were collected in this first exploration phase and sent to ALS laboratories for assays. All results are pending. The second portion of the initial phase of the exploration effort should allow the Company to define a detailed map for each zone of interest identified. Channel sampling, trenching, and an initial drilling campaign will be planned based on the results obtained from the completed phase of the exploration campaign.
