VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Logan Resources Ltd. (LGR: TSX-V) (“Logan” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update of the ongoing analysis of the Viper and Angel Wing projects integrated database. The merged datasets have given Logan geologists a clearer and larger-scale perspective of the Viper District and its prospectivity. In addition, the Bureau of Land Management (“BLM”) has removed land use restrictions pertaining to sagebrush focal areas near the Viper District.
BLM Cancellation of 10 Million Acre Sagebrush Focal Area Withdrawal Proposal
On October 4, 2017, the BLM cancelled its withdrawal application and the withdrawal proposal relating to 10 million acres of public and National Forest system lands located within Sagebrush Focal Areas in Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Wyoming. This release of lands from restricted mineral exploration activity, including lands within the Viper District, was based on a recent BLM analysis that showed future mining is not a significant threat to sage grouse habitat. The withdrawal cancellation allows for future mineral exploration and development in the Viper District without concern of adversely affecting habitat important to the sage grouse.
Ongoing Analysis of Viper District Integrated Database
Viper is an early-stage, low-sulfidation epithermal gold target, located in northeastern Nevada. Logan signed a Mining Lease and Purchase Option Agreement for the Angel Wing Project in March 2017 that effectively consolidated the greater part of the Viper District with the existing portion that was originally optioned from Liberty Gold. Analysis of the merged geological, geochemical and air magnetics datasets from the Viper and Angel Wing projects demonstrate that the main mineralized areas (Baja, Grassy Hollow, Da Vinci/Goya vein zones) lie within a five kilometer-long, north-south corridor, likely controlled by graben bounding faults. In addition to consolidating the property, thus eliminating the threat of competitor activity, analysis of the consolidated Viper/Angel Wing database provides a more extensive view of the Viper District. The combined dataset confirms mineralization at depth, under volcanic cover. Based on previous exploration work, three initial targets areas are identified:
- In-fill drilling of the Baja Zone and possible extensions to the north and south
- Drill testing of mercury and arsenic soil anomalies, hosted by chalcedonic breccias, northwest of the Baja Zone
- Initial drill testing of multi-element soil and rock chip anomalies in the Tancitaran Zone
The technical information within this document has been reviewed and approved by Dr. Craig S. Bow, Vice President Exploration for Logan. Dr. Bow is a Qualified Person as defined in NI 43-101. Dr. Bow has verified the data underlying the exploration results disclosed in this news release.
