- Campaign is anticipated to consist of two drill holes totaling approximately 1,200m in the Flin Flon Mining District to efficiently test two targets with significant potential upside;
- Drilling at the Big Island Project will test a high-priority 450m by 675m geophysical target located down-plunge from the high-grade Tara Lake Deposit; and
- The Company will test its Hook Lake Target, a target that has been identified by multiple electromagnetic surveys located near HudBay’s 777 Mine and Mill.
Vancouver, British Columbia – March 6, 2018 – Callinex Mines Inc. (the “Company” or “Callinex”) (TSX-V: CNX; OTCQX: CLLXF) is pleased to announce that it has commenced its 2018 winter drilling campaign (the “Campaign”) at the Big Island and Flin Flon Projects within the Flin Flon Mining District of Manitoba (See Figure 1). The Campaign is anticipated to consist of two drill holes totaling approximately 1,200m in the Flin Flon Mining District to efficiently test two targets with significant potential upside.
Drilling at the Big Island Project will test a high-priority borehole pulse electromagnetic (“BPEM”) target that spans 450m by 675m located down-plunge from the Tara Lake Deposit, one of the highest-grade zinc-rich VMS discoveries ever made within the Flin Flon Mining District (See Figures 1 and 2).The large BPEM target at the Big Island Project is highly conductive and also has a magnetic association that suggests the target is likely caused by massive sulphides.
Additionally, the Company will test its Hook Lake Target at its Flin Flon Project, a target that has been identified by multiple electromagnetic surveys located near HudBay’s 777 Mine and Mill in Flin Flon, MB. The target lies along a boundary between claims owned 100% by Callinex and claims that have been optioned.
