STRATABOUND MINERALS of Calgary has received the results of a high-resolution aeromagnetic survey of its Marusia property in the Otish Mountains of Quebec. The survey was flown by FUGRO AIRBORNE SURVEYS of St-Laurent, Que., earlier this year.
Interpretation of the results has increased the number of potential kimberlite targets to 29 from 10. Two of the targets were found east of the property boundary, but they have been staked by Stratabound. The property now covers about 3,050 hectares. The targets are circular magnetic anomalies identified as possible kimberlites on the basis of their amplitude and Keating coefficient, developed by the Geological Survey of Canada. The area is structurally favourable to kimberlite emplacements as well. Stratabound has selected 18 of the targets for ground follow-up.
