TORONTO, June 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Cartier Iron Corporation (CSE:CFE) (“Cartier Iron”), is pleased to announce that the company has filed an independent National Instrument 43-101 Technical Report (the “NI 43-101 Technical Report”) for the Big Easy Exploration Property, Clarenville Area, Newfoundland and Labrador Canada.  The NI 43-101 Technical Report, prepared by Mercator Geological Services Limited, summarizes all historical work on the property and has an effective date of April 20, 2018. Big Easy is located approximately 20 kilometres northwest of the town of Clarenville, about 200 kilometres northwest of St. John’s, Newfoundland.

The NI 43-101 Technical Report recommends a two-phase exploration program as follows:

  • Phase 1, comprises Induced Polarization/Resistivity (IP/Res) surveys, historical drill re-logging and a surface exploration program currently underway at an estimated cost of $500,000; and
     
  • Phase 2, consists of a 5,000-metre diamond drill program to test known mineralized areas and IP/Res targets, and, after completion of recommended additional geophysical and surface exploration programs, to test exploration potential of newly generated targets. Estimated cost of the recommended Phase 2 program, which is contingent on successful completion of Phase I, is $2,000,000.

Tom Larsen, President & CEO of Cartier Iron commented: “This report provides an excellent summary of historical work at Big Easy.  We are proceeding forward with Phase I which has already yielded promising results from the IP/Res survey (see press release May 1, 2018).”
