Feb. 3, 2011 (Canada NewsWire Group) --
MONTREAL, Feb. 3 /CNW Telbec/ - GEOMEGA RESOURCES INC. ("GéoMégA") announces it has completed 5 drill holes in the core of the carbonatite complex for a total of 2,500 meters of NQ size diamond drilling. The undergoing 10,000 meters drilling campaign initiated in early December is testing the Montviel carbonatite complex for economic mineralization of rare earth elements. The Montviel property is located 200 km north of Val d'Or, Quebec, and is easily accessed by road.
The first drill hole MVL-10-01, collared in a non-magnetic area of the complex on section 200 W, intersected mainly carbonatite material with minor talc-chlorite altered ultramafic rocks. The 501-meter deep hole remained in carbonatite from beginning to end of the hole representing a core length distance of 480 m.
The next hole, MVL-10-03, was collared 300 meters on strike west of hole MVL-10-01 and intersected a similar section of carbonatite over its entire core length of 512 m.
Both holes were collared at an angle of -55° and an azimuth of N330°. For now, the stratigraphy is interpreted as steeply dipping to the south-east and generally striking in a NE-SW direction.
At this time, only partial assay results have been received from the certified laboratory. Complete assay results for each hole are pending and will be released as soon as they become available.
