ROUYN-NORANDA, QC, June 14, 2021 /CNW Telbec/ - Visible Gold Mines Inc. (TSXV: VGD) (OTC Pink: VGMIF) (FRANKFURT: 3V41) is pleased to announce that Prospectair has completed a heliborne high-resolution magnetic (MAG) survey over Visible Gold Mines' Horsefly and Doda properties located in the Surprise Lake area, Eeyou Istchee Baie-James region, Province of Quebec.

The survey properties are located about 40 kilometres south of the town of Chapais and were flown with traverse lines at 50 metres spacing and control lines spaced every 500 metres. The Horsefly and Doda properties were flown for a total of 1,646 line-kilometres.

Most of the surveyed area is affected by linear magnetic features characteristic of alternating sequences of mafic volcanic rocks with sedimentary or intermediate to felsic volcanic rocks, with possibly some intrusive stocks or dykes locally.

Several magnetic lineaments are curved, even heavily locally, either by folding or at the contact zone with postulated intrusions, such as in the southwest part of the Horsefly property and in the southern part of the Doda property. These evidences are attesting that the area underwent strong deformation events in the past, and that shearing may have affected some of these lineaments. In the Horsefly block, aside from areas near the possible intrusions to the south, most magnetic lineaments are generally trending from ENE-WSW to ESE-WNW, with the exception of a family of lineaments rather striking from NE-SW to N-S and that are possibly pertaining to dykes or to faulting structures. In the Doda property, lineaments are generally striking NW-SE, gradually changing to an E-W orientation to the south. There are also a few isolated lineaments that are rather trending NNE-SSW and NE-SW. In general terms, magnetic lineaments are related to rock formations that are enriched in magnetic minerals (magnetite and/or pyrrhotite). In some areas, it is possible to detect structural features offsetting observed magnetic lineaments and causing abrupt interruption or changes of the magnetic response. These features are typically caused by faults, fractures and shear zones. A comprehensive structural interpretation of the Horsefly and Doda properties is currently underway.
