The Directors of Probe Mines Limited are pleased to announce that a high-resolution airborne magnetic and electromagnetic survey has been completed on the Company’s 100%-owned McFauld’s West Property, located less than 450 metres from Noront Resources’ high-grade nickel-copper-PGE discovery in the James Bay Lowlands, Ontario. The airborne survey will be used to identify targets for an upcoming drill program, and represents the first electromagnetic survey to be conducted on the property. The Company expects to mobilize in late January or early February 2008 to begin the drill program.
The McFaulds West property comprises 12 claims situated immediately north and southwest of Noront Resources’ nickel-copper-PGE discovery. Previous airborne magnetic surveys released by the government show the presence of two anomalies within Probe’s claims that are similar in size and shape to that associated with Noront’s discovery. Other than regional magnetic surveys, the property has had no previous exploration and the current high-resolution airborne survey will be the first to identify potential drill targets.
The airborne survey was conducted by Aeroquest International utilizing the AeroTEM II system, which has a reported exploration depth of up to 250 metres. Once the data has been received and interpreted further announcements will be made on the results of the survey and the details of the 2008 drilling program.
