Toronto, Ontario – March 2, 2017 – PJX Resources Inc. (“PJX” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce that drilling on the Vine Property’s large east gravity anomaly has outlined a zone of anomalous zinc mineralization that is at least 550 meters long and has a true thickness of 100.0 meters.
“In my 50 years of experience exploring for a Sullivan deposit I have never seen this style and broad extent of anomalous zinc mineralization”, states Dave Pighin, PGeo for the Vine Project. “Drilling also supports that the zinc mineralization occurs in a restricted basin where one would expect to discover a massive sulphide deposit like the Sullivan.”
The zinc mineralization, in the form of a mineral called sphalerite, occurs in the upper part of a phyllite rock unit and in the adjacent Lower Aldridge sediments. The phyllite unit has a true thickness of 100.0 meters and forms part of the structural complex that is The Moyie Fault Zone. Sphalerite in the zinc anomalous zone occurs in widely scattered layers from 2mm to 40 mm thick. These layers are deposited parallel to bedding in the sediments and parallel to foliation in the phyllite unit. Sphalerite with associated chlorite, sericite, carbonate and quartz occur in widely dispersed hair line fractures throughout the zinc anomalous zone. The sphalerite found in the zinc anomalous horizon may represent mineralization peripheral to a Sedex massive sulphide deposit that has been caught up, displaced, and distorted, by folding, foliation and brecciation produced by the Moyie Fault.
“This latest drilling has intersected some of the best anomalous zinc mineralization to date”, states John Keating, President and CEO. “The new geological information and additional geophysics is being compiled to guide the location of the next drill holes as we continue to vector into the source of the large gravity geophysical anomaly that may be associated with a dense massive sulphide deposit.”
Zinger Property Update
As announced in January, heavy mineral separation of 2 soil samples recovered 898 grains and 256 grains of gold, respectively on the Zinger Property.
The gold grains were extracted from the soil samples by heavy mineral separation performed at CF Mineral Laboratories in Kelowna, British Columbia. The approximately 4 kilogram (dry weight) samples were taken 7 metres apart. Gold grain morphology suggests that the grains have not travelled far. Gold grains are being further analysed by Scanning Electron Microscope to help assess the source of the gold. Results of this work are pending and will be announced in the near future.
The foregoing geological disclosure has been reviewed by Dave Pighin P.Geo. and John Keating P.Geo. (qualified persons for the purpose of National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects). Mr. Pighin is the Project Manager for the Vine Property. Mr. Keating is the President, Chief Executive Officer and a Director of PJX.
