The High Priority Targets are defined as (BRN_VT01), (BRN_VT03) & (BRN_VT06).  Minotaur Exploration Ltd (Australia) has processed the Geophysics. CDI inversions were conducted on all targets in order to better determine the target depth, dip and extent. Three component fixed loop ground EM will be executed over these targets as recommended. The Grid definitions are below.

As the Ground PEM is being conducted, the Geological Team will be conducting geological mapping and prospecting in the target area to identify any additional surficial outcrop that may assist in target evaluation.

“We are very excited to be implementing our Pre-Drill Program in Nova Scotia on our Highly Regarded Bass River North Targets.  This is the culmination of many years work including Minotaur Australia, Dundee, Cogonov and now our Joint Venture with Chilean Metals Inc.  We anxiously await the opportunity to finally drill the largest VTEM Anomoly in Nova Scotia adjacent to a well mineralized system to the southwest states Thomas Comfort, CEO Tejas Gold Co.”

The process of land access and permitting is underway as are discussions with geophysical contractors to award the contract.


“I believe many will be surprised at the results the Cobequid-Chedabucto Fault Zone (CCFZ) properties will deliver over the next few years. When the Nova Scotia DNR & Minotaur Australia re-defined the CCFZ as a potential IOCG belt, the entire thinking of the area has changed. The CCFZ comprises of a series of crustal-scale faults along a 250km x up to 25km wide that divides Nova Scotia into 2 distinct terranes (Avalon & Meguma).  I believe there is the real potential for 2-3 deposits discovered in this system in the near term.“ stated Patrick J Cruickshank, President & CEO, Chilean Metals Inc.
