Beauce Gold Fields (Champs D’Or en Beauce) (TSX Venture: ¨BGF¨), (“BGF” or the “Company”): is pleased to announce it has geolocated and mapped the Prospector Paquette’s collection (the Collection) of never-before-published historical exploration data and the 120 Consorminex physical gold samples throughout the southern Megantic region of Quebec.
Patrick Levasseur, President and CEO of Beauce Gold Fields said, “Compiling and geolocating the Collection’s many historical sample points was an important endeavour.” Mr Levasseur further stated. “The Collection has already allowed us to identify highly indicative targets and contributed to the recent discovery of the Ditton placer gold channel”
The Prospector Paquette’s collection is comprised of gold and rock samples, heavy mineral concentrates, numerous documents and maps compiled by Mr Paquette or by exploration companies with which he collaborated with (please read BGF press release February 23, 2022). The historical maps drawn in the 1980s indicating the sample point locations were plotted using Modified Transverse Mercator (MTM) coordinate system. BGF, assisted by Mr. Paquette, conducted in the field verification of the sample points and noted its GPS coordinates for further referencing and for upcoming exploration work.
To date, the Consorminex physical gold samples from Collection has allowed BGF to identify potential new gold zones on the Chesham Sand & Gravel Deposit (BGF press releases April 23, 2021 and November 9, 2021), contributed to the discovery of the Ditton placer gold channel (BGF press release April 21, 2022) and has lead to new highly indicative exploration targets in the townships of Newport and Emberton.
To cover the Collection’s data set as well as historical reports, the Company has acquired through map staking, an additional 148 claims. The Megantic property now comprises a total of 335 claims throughout the municipalities of Chartierville, La Patrie, Newport, Notre-Dame-des-Bois, Piopolis, Saint-Augustin-de-Woburn, Saint-Isidore-de-Clifton and Val-Racine
Although the Collection and the historical documentation demonstrates the exploration work and sampling was done with a high degree of professionalism, the work was done prior to the CIM reporting standards National Instrument 43-101 and therefore cannot not be relied upon until the Company proves otherwise. The Company does however; consider the historical Consorminex physical gold samples and data to be relevant to investors as it continues to indicate to the presence of gold mineralization.
