Kirkland Lake, Ontario – October 12, 2017 – RJK Explorations Ltd. (TSX VENTURE: RJX.A) (“RJK”) reports that the company has completed a first phase exploration program on its 3,800-hectare Normetal East Property. The Normetal East Property is located within the Abitibi belt, 15 kilometers north of La Sarre, Quebec and covers approximately 15 kilometers of the “mine sequence” which contains the Normetal Deformation Zone in the Normetal volcanic complex. The Normetal East Deformation Zone is approximately 10 km south-east of the former Normetal Mine, a base-metal orebody where more than 10 million tonnes of ore were produced between 1937 to 1975 grading (> 10 million tonnes grading 5.41% Zn, 2.24% Cu, 44.45 g/t Ag and .546 g/t Au, Rapports des geologues residents sur l’activite miniere regionale) and the Gisement de Normetmar zinc-copper deposit.
The program involved line cutting and ground geophysical surveying resulting in the drill testing of three identified targets. All three drill holes explained the geophysical responses with sulphides. In particular, drill hole NE-17-01 contained a 14-meter intersection of massive to semi-massive to disseminated Pyrrhotite, Pyrite with trace Copper sightings from 146 to 160 meters in intermediate (Andesitic) volcanic breccia in the shear zone adjoining a rhyolitic horizon.
Although economic base metal mineralization was not located in this program, the program did define sulfidation near a felsic horizon containing some interesting structural elements which requires a more detailed examination of the immediate area. Additional field work will be conducted with the intent of implementing a second phase drill program. It should be noted that gold values have been found in a similar context in the Aube showing located approximately two kilometers west of the present drilling program.
