The airborne survey carried out by SkyTEM in August, successfully discovered zones of high conductivity at 2 of the 3 VMS target areas studied. Representative conductivity depth plots for both areas are shown below. The survey over the Kolima project area did not reveal major anomalies.
The main conductor detected at Säviä coincides with the known 800m long copper deposit and extends along strike in N-S direction over a distance of 9 km. The excellent depth penetration of the latest SkyTEM312 HP system has been able to follow this zone of high conductivity down to at least 600m depth.
Similarly, at Kangasjärvi the known massive sulphide body is reflected by a strong EM anomaly, extending down to 800m. This is well beyond the 250m depth reached by the deepest hole drilled in the past. In horizontal direction the same anomaly continues 3km SE of the Kangasjärvi open pit and 1km to the north.
The above results enhance the exploration potential of both projects and provide very prospective target areas for further investigation.
