VANCOUVER, Jan. 31, 2019 /PRNewswire/ - Pacton Gold Inc. (TSXV: PAC, OTC: PACXF) (the "Company" or "Pacton") is pleased to announce that it has commenced a high-resolution heliborne magnetic survey over Pacton's claims in Red Lake, Ontario (Figure 1). This is the initial step in order to prioritize upcoming drill targets as part of an aggressive exploration strategy going forward in this prospective area.
Pacton Red Lake Key Highlights:
- Completion of heliborne magnetic survey to identify high priority D2 structures in the Red Lake district
- Surface programs to commence on both geological and geophysical targets in 2019
- Geologically and structurally similar to Great Bear's Dixie Project
Pacton's mineral claims are strategically located between Pure Gold's Madsen property including the Wedge Zone and Great Bear Resource's Dixie discovery. Recent drill results from Great Bear Resources (TSX.V: GBR) reported 190.78 g/t Au over 5.90 meters including 1,600 g/t Au over a drill width of 0.7 meters in the Hinge Zone (see Great Bear Resources press release dated January 16, 2019). Pacton's Red Lake property geology is similar to the geology that hosts the high-grade discoveries at the Dixie project and Pacton will be using the geophysical data to focus on D2 structures that are proposed to have significant control on gold deposits in the Confederation Assemblage (Figure 2).
