February 22, 2017 - Quantec Geophysical Survey Shows Large Brine Target at Southern Lithium’s Cruz Property, Salta Province, Argentina

Company CEO Clive Massey states: “We are extremely encouraged with the results of the geophysics and we are pleased with the level of participation investors have shown in the recently announced Private Placement. This financing will be another significant step forward for Southern as it continues to build shareholder value and execute on raising the funding necessary to accelerate the advancement of the exploration efforts at the Cruz Property in Argentina.”

Millennial’s COO Iain Scarr states: “The results of the geophysics program thus far appears to confirm our assertion that the Pocitos basin is highly likely to host significant quantities of lithium brine. Its proximity to other large resources, the structural setting, and known chemical indicators are reinforced by these results in justifying and targeting exploration drilling. We are very encouraged by this program, and are grateful to Quantec Argentina for their quality work and thoughtful interpretation. Our plan now is to commence the drilling program as soon as permitting allows. We look forward to reporting further results.”

Southern Lithium’s Geophysical Survey Shows Large Brine Target at its Cruz Property, Salta Province, Argentina

November 10, 2016 - Brixton Metals Delineates A New Large IP and Gold-in-Soil Anomaly

The IP survey at the Chivas Zone succeeded in identifying a strong near surface chargeability high anomaly with a 2.4 kilometres strike length and up to 1.8 kilometres in width. The chargeability anomaly is open to the northwest, southeast and at depth.

Chairman and CEO of Brixton, Gary Thompson stated, “The Chivas Zone represents a very attractive large scale gold target which is to be drill tested in 2017. We are very encouraged that the IP signature at Chivas is very strong and close to surface and that it aligns well with the high gold-in-soil anomaly.”

October 28, 2016 - Titan 24 maps mineralized breccia pipes at Copper Fox’s Sombrero Butte Copper Project in Arizona

Elmer B. Stewart, President and CEO of Copper Fox, stated, “This study supports the presence of a buried porphyry system and shows that the breccia pipes acted as a pathway for a complex multi-phase introduction of metals and mineralized granodiorite boulders…… The fact that the 2015 Titan-24 DCIP survey (“Titan-24″) mapped the mineralized breccia pipes has advanced our interpretation of other chargeability anomalies within the property.”



March 16, 2016 - Quantec surveys involved in 9 of B.C.’s top 10 discoveries since 1980

Quantec surveys a key ingredient for success

An article highlighting British Columbia’s “top 10 mineral deposit discoveries in the last 35 years” is featured in the Spring 2016 issue of AMEBC’s Mineral Exploration magazine. Quantec surveys have been conducted at 9 of the 10 properties, and in some cases played an important role in taking properties from prospect stage to economically viable mining project. Quantec added value in a number of ways, including identifying previously overlooked mineralized zones, seeing deeper than conventional methods, and guiding successful drill programs.


The discoveries making up the list are:


1. Eskay Creek


2. Brucejack   

  • Transitional epithermal Au-Ag in stockwork veining
  • SPARTAN MT in 2012

3. Red Chris  

  • Cu-Au-Ag porphyry
  • TITAN 24 in 2010

4. Mount Milligan   

  • Cu-Au porphyry
  • TITAN 24 in 2010

5. Kemess   

  • Cu-Au porphyry
  • TITAN 24 in 2006, 2008

6. Blackwater  

  • Low sulphide epithermal Au-Ag deposit
  • TITAN 24 in 2010, 2012, 2014; SPARTAN MT in 2013

7. Huckleberry  

  • Cu-Mo porphyry
  • TITAN 24 in 2011, 2013

8. Kerr-Sulphurets-Mitchell (KSM)   

  • Au-Cu-Mo porphyry
  • SPARTAN MT in 2012, 2014

9. Mount Polley   

  • Cu-Au-Ag porphyry
  • TITAN 24 in 2010

10. New Afton   

  • Cu-Au porphyry
  • TITAN 24 in 2008


The global track record shows that Quantec’s deep, high resolution surveys are a common factor contributing to successful mining projects.

February 18, 2014 - Quantec Restructuring

February 18, 2014. In response to less geophysical activity in the mining sector, Quantec conducted a restructuring last week. In addition to eliminating unnecessary general costs that had built up over the last few years of intense activity levels, the company reduced its work force, most importantly eliminating 3 VP level positions. The changes bring Quantec’s costs in line with its current revenue levels. The company does not anticipate any adverse effects to service, quality or turnaround, and in fact expects some gains in efficiency due to the streamlining of its structure.
