Fancamp Initiates IP Survey on its Clinton and Stoke Projects
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 30, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Fancamp Exploration Ltd. (“Fancamp” or the “Company”) (TSX Venture Exchange: FNC) is pleased to announce the commencement of a 45 line kilometer ground-induced polarization (“IP”) geophysical survey project at its Clinton and Stoke projects in the Eastern Townships from Quebec (Figure 1). Both the Clinton and Stoke projects have been the subject of recent drilling campaigns; During the first quarter of 2022, a total of 1,294 meters was drilled in 6 holes on the northern portion of the Clinton property, successfully confirming the extension of the historic “A” lens to at least 100 meters along strike and at shallow depth and 1,119 meters in diameter. During the quarter of 2022, 3 holes were drilled on the Stoke property and successfully intersected a mineralized trend to a vertical depth of approximately 250 metres.

The proposed IP surveys will be conducted in areas where known copper mineralization has been identified by previous exploration work including and following recent drilling programs completed in Spring 2022 on both respective properties (Figure 1). See news releases dated June 14, 2022, August 17, 2022 and September 8, 2022 for previous exploration program results.
In particular, drilling over the historic copper-rich AB lens at the Clinton Project had delineated the extension of mineralization along strike, while drilling at the Stoke Project identified a large VMS-type hydrothermal system that may be associated with historic copper-rich trends that defined during previous drilling (See news releases dated June 14, 2022 and August 17, 2022).
The Clinton IP survey will target the southern extension of a favorable geologic horizon that hosts the past-producing Clinton “O” mine and the known massive sulphide lenses that host historical non-NI 43-101 resources of 1.52 Mt by 2 .02% Cu and 1.54% Zn (MRNFQ Fiche de Gite 21E07-0007) (Figure 2).

The Stoke IP survey will target the northeast extension of the known mineralization observed in the Copper Zone (7.29% Cu over 6.40 meters in ST-2011-06 – GM66485) (Figure 3).
The IP results are integrated into 3D models for Clinton and Stoke, respectively. This work will pave the way for Fancamp to produce a more comprehensive interpretation of geological data and a comprehensive work plan of the unique VMS-rich VMS sedimentary sequences from Stoke-Weedon and Clinton volcanoes.

About the method of induced polarization
The IP survey is a geophysical method in which electric current is injected into the ground through electrodes and the voltage response is measured by electrodes. The method enables the chargeability and resistivity of the examined rock to be measured. A larger content of metallic sulfides such. B. volcanic massive sulphides, typically produces a stronger reaction than the host rock. IP surveys are therefore a great tool to locate buried deposits in geological settings such as Clinton and Stoke.
Geosig Inc. of Quebec City, Quebec is conducting the IP geophysical survey using a pole-dipole array along 200 meter spaced lines with samples every 37.5 meters (n=1 to 16 or 20).
