VANCOUVER, Dec. 19, 2019 - Vanadian Energy Corp. (the "Company") (TSXV: VEC) is pleased to announce the commencement of a ground geophysics program consisting of magnetic and 3 channel electromagnetic surveys on the Huzyk Creek Vanadium Property ("the Property") in Manitoba. The ground geophysical program is planned to follow up anomalies outlined by the Spring 2019 airborne geophysics program carried out in April 2019.
A total of 6 EM and magnetic targets coincident with historic drill holes that intersected graphitic metasediments and sulphide mineralization, were outlined by the 2019 airborne survey. The geophysical trends are interpreted to have strike lengths ranging from 0.6 km to 6.7 km. These trends are thought to be prospective for both vanadium and base metal mineralization.
The ongoing ground geophysics program is focussed on better defining the 6.7 km southwest oriented conductive trend occurring within the claims and adjacent Mineral Exploration License ("MEL") 1093A. This detailed geophysical survey will assist in future diamond drill targeting on the Property. The data from this work is expected to be received by the Company before the end of 2019.
Marc Simpson, P.Geo., the Company's President, CEO and Director is the Qualified Person that has reviewed and approved the contents of this news release on behalf of the Company.
