VANCOUVER, BC, Sept. 2, 2020 /CNW/ – District Metals Corp. (TSXV: DMX) (FRA: DFPP); (“District” or the “Firm”) is happy to report that it has commenced discipline work on its polymetallic Tomtebo Venture within the Bergslagen Mining District of south-central Sweden. Preliminary work consisting of geological mapping, prospecting and geochemical sampling has began on the former Tomtebo Mine, and regionally throughout the 5,144 hectare Property. This work shall be additional complemented by a evaluate of accessible historic drill core from the Tomtebo Mine beginning in mid-September. These fieldwork packages will increase the historic compilation work and just lately flown SkyTEM survey in preparation for a drilling marketing campaign at Tomtebo deliberate for early-2021.
Tomtebo Property Highlights
- Boliden’s Garpenberg Mine is situated 25 km to the southeast, and the historic Falun Mine is situated 25 km to the northwest. Lundin Mining’s Zinkgruvan Mine is situated 175 km to the southwest.
- Tomtebo accommodates related host rocks, construction, alteration, and mineralization kinds because the Garpenberg, Falun, and Zinkgruvan Mines.
- Two historic mines, and quite a few mineralized prospects are located alongside a 17 km pattern on the property. Mineralization on the historic Tomtebo and Lovas Mines seems to be open in all instructions (Determine 1).
- Historic manufacturing on the Tomtebo Mine comprised 120,000 tonnes at 4.4% Cu1. Historic manufacturing on the Lovas Mine comprised 330,000 tonnes at 3.5% Zn, 2.5% Pb, and 30g/t Ag2.
- Improvement work and mining on the historic Tomtebo and Lovas Mines reached depths of 200 m and 190 m, respectively. Mining operations at Boliden’s Garpenberg Mine and Lundin Mining’s Zinkgruvan Mine are at present at depths of 1400 m and 1300 m, respectively, with assets that stay open at 1600 m.
- Beforehand reported historic drill outcomes on the former Tomtebo Mine embrace:
- Gap TOMT65001 intersected 4.67 m at 1,087.Zero g/t AgEq3 or 28.0% ZnEq4 on the Oscarsgruvan zone (see July 6th, 2020 information launch).
- Gap TOMT70004 intersected 16.17 m at 535.7 g/t AgEq3 or 13.8% ZnEq4 on the Steffenburgs zone (see July 27th, 2020 information launch).
- Gap TOMT16008b intersected 3.6 m at 3.98% Cu, 4.Zero m at 11.79% Cu, and 3.Four m at 2.38% Cu on the Gårdsgruvans zone (see August 11th, 2020 information launch).
- Fashionable systematic exploration has by no means been beforehand carried out on the Tomtebo Property.
Garrett Ainsworth, CEO of District, commented: “Compilation of historic drill outcomes on the Tomtebo Mine is full, and Leapfrog 3D modeling of the mineralized zones continues, which shall be tremendously enhanced by the extra information obtained from the just lately commenced fieldwork. As an authority within the Bergslagen Mining District, the presence of Dr. Rodney Allen at Tomtebo is critical given his key function within the discovery of polymetallic mineral assets on the world class Garpenberg Mine. The ultimate SkyTEM information shall be obtainable very quickly, and thereafter interpretations on the magnetic and conductive information shall be developed as a further layer to outline our precedence drill targets on the Tomtebo Mine and regionally throughout the Tomtebo Property.”
Fieldwork comprising geological mapping, prospecting, and geochemical sampling on the historic Tomtebo Mine shall be carried out by Dr. Rodney Allen and Hein Raat. Dr. Allen was Supervisor, Geology Analysis and Improvement for the Boliden Group in Sweden for ten years. Previous to that place, he studied a number of polymetallic ore deposits in Sweden. His geological interpretations have been instrumental within the discovery of recent ore our bodies at Garpenberg and Renström. Mr. Raat was a Geologist for the Boliden Group in Sweden for eight years with the final 4 years being targeted on polymetallic initiatives within the Bergslagen Mining District.
The evaluate of historic drill outcomes on the Tomtebo Mine previous to initiating fieldwork has offered invaluable background data that may help with the geological interpretation of tendencies, patterns, and zonation associated to polymetallic mineralization. Mapping on the historic mine will deal with figuring out controls of mineralization by way of detailed mapping of the geology, alteration, and construction within the open pits and the place outcrop is current. Identification of strongly altered limestone to tremolite skarn shall be a precedence given the significance of this unit to different giant polymetallic deposits within the Bergslagen Mining District. The structural information obtained will enhance the 3D modeling of the mineralized zones at depth the place frequent structural measurements have been traditionally recorded from the -200 m exploration drift.
Regional fieldwork at Tomtebo shall be carried out by Nicolai Metzger who’s an financial geologist with a deal with treasured and base steel exploration in Scandinavia. The regional work will deal with recognized polymetallic mineral occurrences, preliminary SkyTEM conductive and magnetic anomalies, and outcrop exposures. Particular consideration shall be given to mapping out attribute mafic volcanics and marble horizons which are usually spatially associated to polymetallic mineralization on the Garpenberg, Zinkgruvan, historic Falun, and historic Sala Mines.
Notice: The close by mines present geologic context for Tomtebo, however this isn’t essentially indicative that the Property hosts related grades or tonnages of mineralization.
