Newrange Starts Geophysical Surveys
at Pamlico in Nevada
An LHD dumps its load outside the Pamlico portal in Nevada.
MPX Geophysics has started flying highresolution
airborne magnetic and radiometric
surveys at Newrange Gold’s
high-grade Pamlico gold project in Nevada.
The company also contracted for
a ground-based gravity survey to start
on or about August 21. These property-
wide geophysical surveys have never
been done at Pamlico and are designed
to help identify subtle alteration styles
and the distribution and extent of favorable
rock types that host the majority of
the gold occurrences at Pamlico. The
geophysical data will help refine known
targets, as well as identify new targets
Since acquiring Pamlico, the company
has increased the property size more
than 160%, staking 1,337 additional
hectares comprising 160 claims that
cover more than 7 kilometer (km) along a
northwest striking belt of variably altered
and mineralized carbonate sediments.
The company has identified areas within
this belt of highly anomalous gold mineralization
with surface rock chip samples.
Combined with ongoing mapping and
sampling programs, the geophysical surveys
will be used to refine drill targets.
