Reunion Gold completes a first airborne geophysical survey at the NW Extension Project in Suriname
LONGUEUIL, Quebec, April 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Reunion Gold Corporation (TSX-V: RGD) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce the completion of an airborne magnetometric and radiometric geophysical survey of the NW Extension Project in Suriname.
The survey consisted of 3,000 kilometers of flight lines spaced at 100 and 200 meters and flown by a fixed-wing, high-resolution system operated by Terraquest Ltd., a Canadian company with solid experience in the region. The interpretation of available geophysical data indicates that the large, greenstone belt-scale geological structures associated with gold mineralization at the Rosebel gold deposit extend to the northwest under cover of recent sediments, underlying the project area footprint. The Company expects this geophysical survey to help refine the area’s structural geology interpretation and generate targets. Results should be available for interpretation in the next few weeks.
The NW Extension Project is part of the Strategic Alliance with Barrick Gold Corporation and the exploration costs are funded on a 50:50 basis. The 925 square kilometres project area sits within the Northern Greenstone Belt of Suriname, 60 kilometres to the west-southwest of the capital, Paramaribo, and 70 km northwest of the Rosebel mine (Figure 1). The Company has an option to acquire the NW Extension Project from a Surinamese company.
