MONTREAL, September 26, 2019 (CNW) – Genius Metals Inc. (“Genius”) (CSE:GENI)  is pleased to report positive results related to the helicopter-borne electromagnetic (“VTEM”) survey of the A-Lake Cu-Sn-Zn Property in New Brunswick (Canada) and announces  it will follow-up these encouraging results with a prospecting campaign. The company has entered into an option agreement with Atlantic Vanadium Corporation (“AVC”) to acquire 100% of the property.  Please refer to the press release of February 14, 2019 for the terms of the option.

As Previously announced on July 9, 2019, Genius Metals has completed a VTEM survey (including radiometric, MAG and EM) which was flown over part of the A Lake property by Geotech Ltd. The preliminary results indicate magnetic signatures defining different units and contacts in the Mount Douglas Granite and probably the presence of a NS-oriented structure which could potentially represent a geological fault. The radiometric component detected high Th, U, K equivalent concentrations in till material and highly differentiated granitic units of the Mount Douglas Granite. Several of those anomalies coincide with the location of Cu, Zn, Pb +Ag mineralized granitic samples, mostly floats, collected during the 2018 due diligence campaign (see February 14, 2019 press release). Preliminary results from a till campaign suggest that the anomalous concentrations of radioactive elements are also accompanied by anomalous values of base metals content.  

The company intends to appropriate a $50,000 budget in exploration work by the end of the year to perform a till survey on the most promising target areas detected by the VTEM survey. The till survey will be followed by overburden stripping and rock sampling.
