S2 Svan Vit sulphide hit – VTEM survey

A VTEM survey carried out by S2 Resources in Sweden may have led to an exploration breakthrough.

“Our main objective was to identify a conductive body to prove that VTEM works, so to not only prove this but to also confirm mineralisation with our first drill holes into our first conductor is a pleasing bonus.”

VTEM survey in Sweden

The company conducted the first-ever versatile time domain electromagnetic in the Skellefte mining district, which hosts its 100%-owned project of the same name, defining an electromagnetic conductor.

The first two diamond holes drilled to test the conductor intersected volcanogenic massive sulphide-style mineralistion.

The hits included a 4m alteration zone from 85.75m, and a 30m alteration zone from 164.4m.

The mineralisation comprises disseminations and veinlets of sulphide with small zones of semi-massive sulphide – mainly iron, but including zones containing some sphalerite and minor chalcopyrite. Assays are pending for the holes, but the company said the results validated its use of VTEM.

S2 managing director Mark Bennett said the project represented a significant opportunity for the company, which is why it moved to 100% in December.

“Having identified so many strong conductors in our district-scale VTEM survey, it was important for us to test the validity of these, so when our team had an opportunity to do just that before the spring thaw, we took it,” he said.

“Our main objective was to identify a conductive body to prove that VTEM works, so to not only prove this but to also confirm mineralisation with our first drill holes into our first conductor is a pleasing bonus.”

S2 has named the prospect Svan Vit.

Bennett told Mines and Money Asia earlier this month the aim in Sweden was to find another company maker.

S2 is also exploring its Polar Bear project in Western Australia.

Shares in S2 have risen nearly 50% in the past week and are up 55% this month.

Lumina Gold Reports Results of ZTEM Geophysical Survey at Cangrejos

“The ZTEM results demonstrate the size of the Cangrejos system and the potential to expand the existing gold resources given the significant areas of the geophysical anomaly that remain untested. Having a geophysical anomaly coinciding with surface gold geochemistry delineates clear additional exploration targets with high discovery potential.”
