, magnetometer, soil geochemistry and geological mapping surveys have been carried out to determine if additional VMS deposits are present in the area.
Prior ground geophysical surveys had identified HLEM
conductors that extend southward from Texmont for more than 1.
Nevsun has continued drilling at Harena on sections representing 100 meters step outs, primarily along strike of HLEM
and gravity anomalies.
Surface mineralization and a coincident HLEM
conductor indicate good continuity in the zone.
In 2004, work on the property included magnetic and HLEM
surveys and an extensive geochemical orientation survey (bark and twigs) on the Page Block and a portion of the Peterson.
Diamond drilling of a coincident gravity anomaly, HLEM
anomaly and gold in soil anomaly resulted in the first hole intersecting gossan mineralization from 33.
TEM (UTEM and Crone PEM), HLEM
and Magnetics ground geophysical programs have been completed at the Bucko Deposit and on priority areas of the Bowden Lake (Bowden and M11A Deposit, Bucko South Extension and North Limb Ultramafic) and Gonlin Lake properties and are in progress at the Halfway Lake, Resting Lake, Moak/Strong, Burntwood River and Airport properties.
Harena has coincident residual gravity, HLEM
and soil geochemical anomalies in association with a sub-cropping gossan.
survey identified numerous high priority electromagnetic ("EM") conductors throughout the claims.
Following construction of a 16 person camp in the Kenty Lake area in July 2004, field work commenced with gridding (31 km), ground geophysical surveys consisting of magnetic (28 km), HLEM
surveys (28 km), moving loop TDEM (16.
