Vancouver, British Columbia – TheNewswire – April 19, 2023: Inflection Resources Ltd. (CSE:AUCU) (FSE:5VJ) (OTC:AUCUF) (the “Company” or “Inflection”) is pleased to announce it is the recipient of an exploration grant from the Government of Queensland, Australia. The grant totalling AUD$200,000 has been awarded as part of the Queensland Government’s Collaborative Exploration Initiative to further explore the Carron Gold project located in Northern Queensland.
Alistair Waddell, Inflection’s President and CEO, states: “Inflection would like to thank the Queensland Government for the tremendous financial support given to the Company which will go a great way to further understand the potential of the Carron project. We anticipate using the grant funding later this year when the exploration program at Carron resumes.”
The Carron project is located approximately 400 kilometres west of Cairns in Northern Queensland. Inflection has identified a series of orogenic potentially gold-bearing quartz vein and intrusion related gold targets on trend from the historic Croydon Goldfields, one of Queensland’s more significant high-grade gold mining districts. Total production from the Croydon Goldfields after 1885 is reportedly over one million ounces from numerous quartz-vein lode deposits reportedly with an average grade of 35 g/t Au(1).
The Carron targets were generated by analysing data from a regional airborne magnetic survey completed by the Queensland Government. Interpretation of the magnetic data identified a series of extensive large north-west trending structures under post-mineral sedimentary cover, which intermittently extend for over approximately 30 kilometres. Consequently, the Company flew a 3,855-line kilometre airborne high-resolution magnetic survey with 50-metre line spacing for better target definition of the structures to enable drill hole positioning. Subsequent to the survey, interpretation of the magnetic data identified a number of large magnetic anomalies interpreted to be intrusions and having conceptual potential for intrusion associated copper-gold mineralisation. The high resolution airborne magnetic data was processed, and 3D magnetic vector inversion and conventional susceptibility inversion modelling completed.
In late 2021, Inflection completed an initial four drill holes at Carron totalling 1,030 metres which was successful in intercepting orogenic style quartz veins as modelled by the Company, although only anomalous gold and base metal values were returned. The Company anticipates completing further work on the property later in the year once the area become accessible after the wet season and once the planned drilling in New South Wales is fully underway.
