Montoro Receives Positive Preliminary Results from Completed ZTEM Helicopter Survey Over Serpent River- Pecors (Ni-Cu-PGE), Elliot Lake-Ontario Property

Posted: August 08, 2018

August 8, 2018 - International Montoro Resources Inc. (TSX-V: IMT) (the "Company").

ZTEM Survey indicated positive preliminary results:

Further to our news release of June 27, 2018, Geotech Ltd. dba Geotech Airborne of Aurora, Ontario has provided the Company with a Preliminary Report on the helicopter-borne ZTEM geophysical survey of approximately 280 line km at 200m line spacing increasing further information to depths over 2000 metres.   Survey results should assist in better targeting the next phase of diamond drilling on its Serpent River - Pecors Ni-Cu-PGE project.   A 3D inversion will be also be completed.

The ZTEM appears to identify a deep, gently east & north dipping conductive layer at ~750m that coincides with the magnetic features.  The feature layer that is centered on our Pecors area block, also remains open to the north.

These results are preliminary, and additional processing of the data should be completed in the next few weeks until receipt of the final report.

The survey indicates similarities to the East Bull Lake intrusion in nearby Massey, Ontario.  ZTEM was successfully applied as follow-up to VTEM over Magmatic Massive Sulphide (MMS) Ni-Cu deposits to determine their potential extensions to depth.  These included the Ni-Cu-PGE prospect at Western Area-Mustang Minerals JV East Bull Lake Anorthosite (Orta et al., 2011) in nearby Massey, Ont., where ZTEM successfully defined a deep PGE mineralized, troctolitic layer at 850m depths that was originally identified in MT surveys from the 1980’s (Kurtz et al.,1986). 

NI 43-101 Dislosure:

Jean M. Legault, M.SC.A., P.Eng, P.Geo., and Chief Geophysicist of Geotech Ltd., a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101, has reviewed and approved the technical information above in this news release as in reference to the ZTEM survey on the Pecors anomaly.

Sudbury area Nickel in Demand –bodes well for Montoro advancing it Pecors Ni-Cu-PGE project:

The recent announcements by Vale to invest Cdn. $760 million in Phase 1 of its Copper Cliff Deep mine, and Glencore’s Sudbury Integrated Nickel Operations  Cdn. $900 million development in its Onaping Depth project have received board approvals; and indicate a renewed confidence in the nickel market and potential of the Sudbury region.  Both projects are being undertaken to replace declining production from established mines.

As reported in the Sudbury Mining Solutions Journal by Norm Tollinsky-  “I don’t think it’s a surprise to anyone that most of our mines were facing declining production profiles,” said Vale’s Dave Stefanuto, Vice President-Capital Projects for the North Atlantic.  “We need to find replacement volumes of ore, so we’re starting to focus more on what we can do to start supplementing these declining orebodies.”

Also reported in CBC news July 19th see - Danica Pagnutti, Corporate Affairs specialist with Vale, “The increase spending reflects a positive outlook for the future of the nickel market.”

The property comprises 10 mineral claims (115 units), or approximately 1,840 ha

In February 2018 Montoro received approval for the acquisition of the Duhamel, Quebec property.  The Ni-Cu-Co prospect consisted of nine (9) mineral claims comprising 500 ha.  Additional staking and compiling of data has been underway since February, and an updated report of these findings is forthcoming.

In addition the Company owns jointly with Belmont Resources Inc. (50/50) its Crackingstone (982 ha, 2,427 acres) and Orbit (11,109 ha, 27,450 acres) Uranium properties in the Uranium City District, Northern Saskatchewan, and is seeking a joint venture partner to continue development of this advanced property.
