New Drilling Program About to Commence

February 6, 2014

Written by Mark Fields, President

This is an exciting time for Geodex as we are about to begin another drill program. The drill is known in the mineral exploration industry as the “Truth Machine”. After all the prior work – conceptual models, property visits, geological mapping and evaluation, soil sampling, induced polarization and magnetometer geophysical surveys in this case – the Truth Machine is on its way shortly to the Benjamin Copper-Molybdenum Project.  The drill core will tell the truth as to what caused all the anomalies seen in the indirect methods described above. And hopefully its ore grade mineralization!

On our website are a series of maps which we have pored over, received input from many people and then picked the top priority targets. Dave Martin, Geodex’s VP New Brunswick Operations, then went and scouted the locations and made some final adjustments to account for the local conditions such as the forest and water sources.  The crew will then prepare the drill sites, followed immediately by the drillers from Lantech Drilling who will operate the Truth Machine.

Fortunately the severe winter weather New Brunswick has experienced this year appears to have abated and the forecast is for conditions which allow for good winter drilling – below freezing but not too cold with no major snowfalls forecast.

Below is a photo of Mark Fields looking over the Benjamin maps with Roland Lovesey while he was in Vancouver recently. Geodex optioned the Benjamin project from Roland and his partners Dick Mann and Norm Pitre. Roland, Dick and Norm will be waiting just as eagerly as all of us for the Truth Machine results.
