Gespeg Acquires New Copper Project in the Gaspé Peninsula


SASKATOON, Saskatchewan, Oct. 03, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — GESPEG COPPER RESOURCES INC. (TSX-V:GCR) (the “Company” or “Gespeg”) announces that it has entered into a purchase agreement (the “Agreement“) with an arm’s length party (the “Vendor“), to acquire a 100% undivided interest in 3 projects on the Southern portion of the Gaspé Peninsula and the Chibougamau Region. 

The first project, the Chandler Project, situated west of the Municipality of Chandler, is composed of 19 claims divided in 2 sectors and has four (4) known  indicators: Ruisseau Bleu, T.Nelson 1 and 2, Riviere St-Jean South and Route 102 S-W. The project is part of the Mont Alexandre syncline, associated to an important metallotect volcanic horizon part of the Lake McKay Member, which lies within the greenstone belt present in the Gaspe Peninsula. The Lake McKay Member is situated at the bottom of the West Point Formation and associated to an assemblage of volcaniclastic material, conglomerates and sandstones with some minor interbedded lavas. This type of volcanic horizon is known to generate multiple mineralized copper zone. The greenstone belt has already shown 9 indicators in the area, it appears that the obvious model for these types of mineralization is the Keweenaw Peninsula native copper model
