Cartier Starts Geophysical Surveys on MacCormack

VAL-D’OR, QUEBEC–(Marketwired – Nov. 12, 2015) – Cartier Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ECR) (“Cartier”) announces that it has begun geophysical OreVision and magnetometer surveys on the MacCormack Property, situated 25 km north-north west of the Bousquet – LaRonde mining camp infrastructures. The surveys follow positive results of the calibration test line with OreVision technology completed on one line over the MacDeroff massive sulphide showing and MacCormack gold showing.

The objective of these surveys is to locate, along the favourable zones known on the property, new geophysical anomalies similar to that of the known mineralization. The surveys will be conducted over a line cut grid of 40 km covering an area of 2 km by 3 km. The OreVision technology will search this area for deposits up to a depth of 600 m.

The occurrence of zinc-rich volcanogenic massive sulphide mineralization on the property demonstrates the areas potential to generate these types of deposits. Furthermore, the favourable horizon that contains the mineralization has been recognized over a distance of 7 km.

Philippe Cloutier, President and CEO, commented: « we have the advantage of having known mineralization near surface with an innovative deep searching geophysical method that could lead to new discoveries on the property».
