Vancouver, BC / TNW – Accesswire / Vancouver, B.C., December 4, 2017 – Nortec Minerals Corp. (TSX-V: NVT; OTC-PK: NMNZF) (the “Company” or “Nortec”) – Nortec announces that Energold Drilling (EMEA) Limited, has completed seven diamond core holes on the TOM-1 Target, Tomboko Project, Northeastern Guinea, West Africa (Figure 1). Five holes, TBDD003, 004, 005, 006 and 007 were drilled on Priority 1 Target and two drill holes TBDD0001 and 002 were drilled on Priority 3 Target (Figures 2 and 3). The holes were designed to intersect the source of the significant northwest trending soil and termite anomalies. All drill holes intersected zones of intense silicification, alteration and brecciation with pyrite. All the samples have been sent for analyses and results will be released upon receipt.
The core drilling program has been halted pending receipt of the assays from these seven drill holes. This will both conserve funds and allow time to interpret the geology and plan the next drilling phase. The next phase is expected to commence in January 2018, and as the rainy season is over (July – October) will consist of less expensive Rotary Air Blast (RAB) and Reverse Circulation Drilling (RC). Focus will be on the rest of the termite mound anomalies on the Tom 1 target, geochemical soil and termite mound anomalies, as well as artisanal workings on the Tom 2 and Tom 3 targets. This is intended to further assist in defining target areas for delineating the mineralized zones.
Mohan Vulimiri, CEO and Chairman comments, “We are very pleased to have started the drill program on the Tomboko project after many delays due to the rainy season. We are looking forward to continuing exploration program with RAB and RC drilling on the identified geochemical anomalies and artisanal working areas on the Tom 1, Tom 2 and Tom 3 Targets”
Details with respect to the geology and historical geochemical results are contained in press releases on the Company’s website. Further to the Company press release dated November 7, 2017, the Nortec is amending and updating the NI-43-101 Technical Report on review and comments by TSX Venture Exchange. The Report was filed on SEDAR on November 8, 2017.
