- Airborne Survey has begun on newly acquired Flin Flon North Claims
- Time domain electromagnetic (TDEM) and magnetometer surveys
- 10 km northwest the 777 Copper, Zinc and Gold mine in Flin Flon
- 10 km north of Searchlight’s flagship Bootleg Lake Gold Project
Vancouver, British Columbia, September 20th, 2019 - Searchlight Resources Inc. (“Searchlight” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: SCLT) is pleased to announce that the Company has commenced an airborne geophysical survey on the newly acquired Flin Flon North claims located approximately 10 kilometres northwest of Creighton, Saskatchewan and the city of Flin Flon, Manitoba.
The survey is being conducted by Precision GeoSurveys Limited and includes airborne time-domain electromagnetic (TDEM) and magnetometer surveys. Approximately 550 line-kilometres will be flown at 75m line-spacing covering approximately 37 square kilometres, with the survey to be completed before the end of September.
Searchlight’s new “Flin Flon North” project comprises two mineral claims totaling 5,644.7 hectares. The claims are located approximately 10 kilometres northwest of Flin Flon Manitoba, an historical mining camp with over 90 years of continuous copper, zinc and gold production from multiple mines. Searchlight’s new claims are within 10 kilometres of four mines belonging to Hudbay Minerals, which combined, account for over 110 million tonnes of past production and current reserves and resources.
“Searchlight wanted to follow-up quickly on the Flin Flon North option given the highly prospective geology and multiple exploration targets just a few kilometres down the highway from Flin Flon and the 777 mine” stated Stephen Wallace, President and CEO of Searchlight. “The purpose of this survey and ongoing compilation is the development of high-quality base metal and gold drill targets for near term drilling.”
The Flin Flon North claims were optioned last month based on Searchlight’s ongoing regional compilation to target the most prospective areas in the Flin Flon Greenstone belt for new VMS base metal and gold mines.
On August 8, 2019 Searchlight announced it would undertake a private placement offering of up to 10,000,000 shares. The private placement details are contained in the press release of August 8th, 2019.
