PLAYFAIR MINING BEINGS DRILLING WINDFALL GEOTEK ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE TARGETS AT RKV COPPER PROJECT IN SOUTH CENTRAL NORWAY
DOES NOT CONSTITUTE AN OFFER OF THE SECURITIES DESCRIBED HEREIN
Brossard, Quebec / The Newswire / October 5th, 2021 – Windfall Geotek Inc. (TSX-V: WIN, OTCQB: WINKF, FSE: L7C2) a leader in the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) with advanced knowledge-extraction techniques since 2005 in the mining sector is pleased to report Playfair mining (TSXV: PLY) has begun drilling 7 AI targets that were generated by Windfall Geotek on the RKV Copper project in South Central Norway (Figure 1-2 ) ( Press release of December 6th, 2019 and July 21st, 2020)
- Drilling in progress at the Rødalen high copper MMI anomaly, the first of seven drill targets delineated by Windfall Geotek CARDS AI in five areas.
- Drill Notifications have been made and approved for 38 initial drill holes and up to 122 additional holes dependent on results
- Windfall Geotek provided Playfair Mining with 24 targets in October 2019
- Drill Targets were followed up with MMI sampling returning high copper values confirming AI targets
- Drill Target Locations to be tested
The Norwegian Geological Survey (NGU) reports: “The Rødalen deposit was mined in the period between 1750 to 1810, with further exploration until 1918. About 40,000 tonnes of copper-rich ore was produced. The deposit is hosted by quartzite and thin horizons of amphibolite in generally calcareous biotite mica schist of the Gula group. The mineralization is totally covered by waste, but old reports describe the ore as 1-2 m wide ore zones rich in chalcopyrite and zones of massive pyrite and pyrrhotite.” NGU further reports that samples taken from the dump by NGU geologists contained up to 1.81% copper and 0.96 gpt gold
Simran Kamboj, President and CTO of Windfall Geotek commented: “It is fantastic to see our client Playfair Mining making progress following a methodical work flow on our priority targets.This is an important milestone to further follow up on key areas on the project. Identifying drill targets is always a collaborative effort; we’re happy to have played a key role in this process. We wish the Playfair Mining team best of luck and we can’t wait to hear about the outcome of this drilling program.”
Don Moore, CEO of Playfair Mining added: “It’s a long and winding road to discovery. After over two years of methodical exploration using modern methods such as Windfall Geotek AI in an almost 400-year-old under-explored mining district Playfair has defined seven high priority drill targets in five areas. We have now started our drill program to test these compelling targets from Windfall Geotek Inc.”
