➔Abitibi Geophysics will carry out the survey using AeroVision Drone-MAG technology
➔Approximately 108 line kilometres of UAV Magnetics
➔Important step for Tombill Main Group property which has not seen modern exploration
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - February 2, 2021) - Tombill Mines Limited (TSXV: TBLL) (the "Company" or "Tombill"), is pleased to announce the start of an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle-Magnetometer Survey ("UAV-MAG Survey") on its Tombill Main Group property in the Geraldton Gold Camp. The survey will be flown by Abitibi Geophysics, a leading Canadian geophysics provider.
The magnetic surveys will cover high priority targets on the Tombill Main Group
UAV-MAG Survey is capable of flying at tree-top level with tight-line spacing, which gathers exceptionally detailed data that highlights subtle magnetic features for interpreting structures
Approximately 108 line kilometres of UAV Magnetics (5.4 square kilometres, flown at 29m AGL, with 50 m line spacing)
The new survey will help better identify high-priority, cross-cutting features, and structures on Tombill’s property. Identification of these features will help refine and identify current and additional drill targets for our drill program
AeroVision Drone-MAG, a pioneer technology in UAV airborne geophysics, will be used to survey the property. The drone provides low altitude aeromagnetic surveys, producing high resolution data at regular intervals at a fraction of the time and cost of surface mag
Adam Horne, CEO – commented; “We look forward to conducting these airborne geophysical surveys with Abitibi Geophysics, one of the leading Canadian geophysics providers. This will be very useful for interpreting possible gold-bearing features for surface and near-surface exploration at the Tombill Main Group property, which has not seen modern exploration, nor geophysical surveys since the 1970’s. Moreover, we are aiming to embark on our surface and near-surface campaigns in Q2 of this year.”
