VANCOUVER, BC, September 12, 2023 –Geologica Resource Corp. (CSE:GRCM, FSE:862, Stuttagart:A2QQBC) (“Geologica” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has amended the option agreement for the Topley Claims with Decoors Mining.
Decoors Mining has agreed to modify the option agreement to extend the time frame to complete exploration expenditures under the agreement to December 31, 2023.
As previously announced Geologica conducted a multi-year geochemical survey at the Topley Landing Property (“Topley”). The survey resulted in the identification of multiple copper and gold anomalies at Topley as well as multiple kilometer scale redox zones and Volcanic Massive Sulfide (“VMS”) targets.
A district scale airborne magnetics survey conducted by exploration company Riverside and Chilean copper producer Antofagasta included Topley. As shown in the map below there are 2 north south trending magnetic lows (faults) in blue in the western portion of the property. Geochemical anomalies identified in the surveys that lie between these faults are the targets for future exploration at Topley. Of particular interest is the area where the overlapping copper and gold anomalies overlie the redox/VMS zones in the southwestern section of the property between the magnetic lows.
Geochemical Anomalies in Relation to Magnetic lows
Douglas Unwin CEO and President of Geologica states: “The areas with the overlapping copper and gold anomalies are the areas that will be targeted by the IP survey. Analysis of the combined geophysics and geochemistry surveys should result in targets for a future drill program.”
CLAIMS HISTORICAL WORK
Previous drilling on the claims has indicated intense epithermal alteration with Ag, Pb, and Zn mineralization. Sporadic regional till samples in the area are in the 90th percentile for As, Sb, Pb and Zn. These claims have been mapped as mostly monazite stocks with in andesites, a similar geology to Mount Milligan.
