Second time lucky: Infinity Stone Ventures strikes massive graphite in a second hole at Rockstone
Infinity Stone Ventures has been undertaking an Autumn (we call it Spring) drill program at the Rockstone Graphite Project near Thunder Bay, Ontario where early observations suggest the massive sulphide horizon represents VM-S type mineralisation.
The total known strike length of the Rockstone graphitic unit has been extended to 80m, and remains open along strike, after intersecting 10.9m of semi-massive to massive graphite in addition to the 8.8m of semi-massive to massive sulphides.
With a better understanding of the structure now at Rockstone – which hosts 18 additional drill ready VMS type electromagnetic targets – Infinity believes it is well equipped to make a better decision as to the next steps in exploration.
“We are very pleased to hit mineralisation in the second step-out hole of our Fall program,” Infinity Stone CEO Zayn Kalyan says.
“Immediate next steps will likely include conducting downhole geophysics, as well as additional drilling of previously identified drill targets.
“With both the assays from drill core from this program, and the current metallurgical program underway at SGS, there are many near term catalysts in the pipeline.”
The company is also preparing to carry out an airborne magnetic survey which will assist in defining new targets and better define known mineralised zones at its Zen-Whoberi in Quebec.
The 600 line kilometre survey over a single block will be carried out by an unmanned aerial vehicle with a detailed line spacing of 100m as well as 25m spacing over the soil sampling grid completed by the company during summer 2022.
Of the three samples taken from the Centauri zone, one returned grades of 15.5% copper, 14.9 grams per tonne silver, 0.4g/t gold, 0.114% nickel and 216 parts per million cobalt while the other two yielded copper grades of 2.12% and 0.7%.
