Fancamp completes compilation and interpretation of Stoke Project. Identifies exhalative marker horizon related to base metal mineralization. Announces third Drilling Program for 2022
March 22, 2022
VANCOUVER, British Columbia – Fancamp Exploration Ltd. (“Fancamp” or the “Corporation”) (TSX Venture Exchange: FNC) is pleased announce completion of the compilation and integrated interpretation work for the Stoke Project, situated in the Eastern Townships of Quebec (Figure 1). This work led to the determination of drill targets for testing of the exhalative horizon associated with interpreted syn volcanic growth faults.
Fancamp and Mira Geoscience Ltd. (Mira) have completed the construction of a 3D model for the Stoke project. The data compilation of the available public and private company information were used to develop a geological model for the Stoke property. The compilation indicates that the property geology is comprised of a main stratigraphic sequence consisting of a volcano-sedimentary succession of bi-modal volcanic units overlain by sedimentary packages. An exhalative unit, identified in several historical drill holes, has been used as a marker related to the base metal mineralization on the project. The overall geological package has been folded and forms two subvertical antiform and synform structures with axial planes striking to the NE. Lastly, the faults mainly consist of steeply to moderately dipping thrust faults striking to the NE and dipping to the SE (Figure 2).
Mira and Fancamp built a 3D model which indicates potential variations in thickness of the various stratigraphical units. This synopsis was then used to identify abrupt changes in thickness which could be associated to synvolcanic faults and/or graben in which hydrothermal fluids could be concentrated under the exhalative horizon.
One of the breakthroughs of the interpretation through the 3D modeling was the development of paleo reconstruction of the stratigraphical units. This approach led to the discovery of a series of either potential synvolcanic faults and/or graben type depression at the paleo surface defined by the exhalative horizon situated at the mafic – felsic contact. These depressions are often the focus of metals deposition and syn-volcanic growth faults are often the first- order control on the flow of metal- bearing hydrothermal fluids. Historical drilling highlights from the property include 7.29% Cu over 6.40 metres in the depth extension of Phelps Dodge’s “Copper Zone ", (drillhole 2011- 06) and 6.21 gpt Au in the “Grand Prix” gold zone. This included a 1.0 metre interval with 22.4 gpt Au, 7.73% Zn, 1.73% Cu, and 2.62% Pb, (drillhole ST-2010-06) (Figure 3)
Fancamp intends to test drill the paleosurface to uncover potential metals concentration.
The scientific and technical information contained in this press release was reviewed and approved by François Auclair, PGeo, M.Sc. Vice President Exploration of Fancamp, designated as a Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101.
Assays for the diamond drill programs were analyzed by Activations Laboratories Ltd. in Ancaster, Ontario. The Corporation inserts quality control samples (blanks, standard reference material, and duplicates) at regular intervals to monitor laboratory performance. Standard samples are inserted every 15-20 samples, with additional standard material added to mineralized zones. Reference samples are obtained from OREAS (Ore Research and Exploration P/L ABN) and comprised OREAS 620 (0.173% Cu), and OREAS 624 (3.10% Cu). Blanks are inserted every 15-20 samples and are obtained from a deposit of pure quartzite. Field duplicates are inserted every 20 samples.
