Gespeg’s Approach to Target Identification at Lac Arsenault

Gespeg is employing exploration techniques that have never been utilized on the Lac Arsenault to refine existing targets and identify previously overlooked areas to develop new exploration targets. Commencing with the structural geological examination conducted by Dr. Jean Philippe Desrochers (see press release), and the high-resolution heliborne magnetic survey flown by Prospectair in October, Gespeg has now contracted to complete an induced polarization survey which was initiated on November 15, 2020.

Mr. Sylvain Laberge, President and CEO of Gespeg states “Our exploration team is committed to bringing all of these tools to the Lac Arsenault project for the first time in the projects history. We are confident the program will result in new and well defined drill targets that we can follow-up on in early 2021”.
Results from the exploration program will be reported once all the correlation of all the data collected has been completed.

About Lac Arsenault Project: The property is located along the Grand Pabos fault, in the south-eastern part of the Gaspé Peninsula. Its immediate environment reveals a series of superficial magnetic anomalies, drained by the Grand Pabos fault from a mass buried at great depth. The research, carried out in 2014 by the Consorem, concludes that the intersection of the geochemical targets (favorable rocks) and of the geophysical analysis with the analysis of the streams sediments make it possible to identify several very favorable zones for deposits of the porphyry type (skarns) and the “Reduced Intrusion-Related” type Gold Systems ”(RIRGS) along the Grand Pabos fault. The mineralization observed and interpreted as mesothermal gold veins placed in secondary deformation corridors at the Grand Pabos fault, could originate in the environment of these types of deposit.

About Gespeg Resources Inc.: Gespeg is an exploration company with a focus in strategic and energetic metals and underexplored regions “Gaspé, Chibougamau Québec”. With a dedicated management team, the Company’s goal is to create shareholder value through the discovery of new deposits.
