DIAMONDS: Stein project yields encouraging results for GGL Resources



NUNAVUT – GGL Resources reported receiving encouraging results from a ground geophysical survey program on the Stein diamond project 85 km northwest of the community of Taloyoak.

In a press release, GGL said that the detailed ground magnetic survey program delineated a number of compelling targets that are consistent with magnetic signatures over known kimberlites which have intruded through Cambrian-Devonian age Arctic Platform carbonate rocks at parallel latitudes elsewhere in Canada’s north. According to the company, Stein shows similar geology.

“A broad range of kimberlite like signatures were defined during the surveys which further bolsters the possibility of Stein delivering a new kimberlite field,” the media brief reads. “Many known kimberlite fields exhibit a variety of magnetic responses which represent kimberlites intruding under varied circumstances and conditions. These signatures range from isolated magnetic highs to strong dipolar features to elongate dyke-like responses. The Stein project has delivered all three of these emplacement style signatures.”

The property consists of four contiguous prospecting permits covering an area of 1,065 square kilometres on the Southern Boothia Peninsula, 45 km from tidewater.

GGL has an option to earn a 60% undivided interest in the project, currently owned by Arctic Star Exploration.
