VANCOUVER, BC / April 13, 2020 / IMC International Mining Corp (CSE:IMCX) (OTC:IMIMF) (3MX.F) (the “Company” or “IMC“), has received notice from CME Consultants Inc. (“CME”) that the analytical geochemical program announced April 6, 2020 has commenced and that rock & soil samples have been sent out for lab testing. CME is verifying geochemical results as well as assaying for the first time, certain rock and soil samples taken from the Thane Property located in north-central British Columbia, Canada.
During the 2012 work program conducted by CME, a total of 847 rock samples were collected from various locations throughout the Thane Property. Analytical work in 2012 consisted of crushing and pulverizing all rock samples and submitting 310 samples to an analytical laboratory for multi-element analysis. The 310 samples were selected by analyzing the pulp material from all samples using a portable X-ray fluorescence machine and selecting samples that returned anomalous copper values.
As part of this current analytical geochemical program undertaken by IMC, a total of 452 rock sample pulps were pulled from storage in a secure location at CME’s field office in Vavenby, British Columbia. Quality assurance-quality control (“QA-QC“) protocol was implemented in this study, which consisted of the insertion of control samples and check analysis on historical results. A total of 9 control samples were submitted, bringing the total sample submission to 461. The rock sample pulps have been submitted for geochemical analysis at ALS Minerals of North Vancouver, British Columbia (“ALS“). The samples will be homogenized by undergoing a light pulverization, then analyzed for multi-element by ICP with MS finish and gold by fire assay with AA finish.
In addition to the rock sample pulps, 223 soil samples were pulled from storage at CME’s field office and submitted for geochemical analysis at ALS. The samples will be sieved to -180 micron (80 mesh) then analyzed for multi-element by ICP with MS finish and gold by fire assay with AA finish. QA-QC protocol was implemented in this study, which consisted of the insertion of control samples. A total of 2 control samples were submitted, bringing the total sample submission to 225.
All soil samples were collected from the Cathedral Area of the 206.58 square kilometer land package that makes up the Thane Property. The soil samples were taken from three contour soil lines with samples collected at 25 metre intervals. Further soil samples exist from the 2012 exploration program from within the Cathedral Area and other areas of the Thane Property. These samples will be pulled at a later date for analysis. The contour samples pulled for the current analytical geochemical program were selected because they complement the Induced Polarization (“IP“) survey completed in 2019. The IP survey results are currently outstanding and will be made public when available.
The scientific and technical information disclosed in this news release was reviewed and approved by Christopher O. Naas, P. Geo., of CME who is a “Qualified Person” as defined in NI 43-101.
