Vancouver, BC – Engineer Gold Mines Ltd. (the “Company”) (TSXV: EAU) announces a LiDAR survey has been completed at the Engineer Gold Project by Eagle Mapping Ltd covering an area of 15,874ha (159 sq km). The survey was flown by fixed wing aircraft over the Wann River, Engineer Mine and Mill Site, Happy Sullivan, Golden Bee, Golden Mountain and the TAG target areas and includes the acquisition of orthoimagery or georectified aerial photography of the property.
Company president Andrew H. Rees commented “The acquisition of data provided by the LiDAR survey will identify fault zones and structural trends which may host lateral extensions of known mineralized bodies. It will also identify bedrock exposures otherwise obscured by vegetation, the location and volume of historical disturbances, water sources as well as but not limited to accurate elevations which can be used to accurately spatially reference historical exploration and mining data for 3D modeling”.
Jean Pautler, P.Geo., the qualified person on the Engineer Gold Project with respect to NI 43-101 states “the LiDAR survey is an exciting addition to the 2020 exploration program and will substantially aid in the tracing of productive structures, in the identification of new untested structures, and in the delineation of structural intersections. Structure is key to new discovery.”
LiDAR is an acronym for Light Detection and Ranging or Light Radar which is a remote sensing method that uses a swath of pulsing lasers of light at certain frequencies to measure distances to the surface of the earth. The laser pulses reflect off various surfaces and those reflections are recorded by a sensor and a differential GPS on board the aircraft. The point density is usually quite high and results in very accurate positioning and elevations.
