Vancouver-based Tasca Resources revealed that it is planning to conduct a Long Wave Infrared (LWIR) Survey over the Poplar Copper Project located in northern British Columbia, adjacent to New Nadina’s Silver Queen claim block.

According to the miner, the new technology is a significant advancement in exploration tools, particularly when it comes to developing potential exploration targets that were not previously visible to prospectors. "LWIR bands have the ability to penetrate vegetation and cover, to then mathematically 'fingerprint' target mineralization and the component minerals," Tasca said in a press release.

LWIR Consultants, the firm conducting the survey, has already obtained some preliminary LWIR data for the Poplar claim block, along with various Nadina claim blocks announced for review, processing and exploration target generation.

Tasca’s property holdings in the New Nadina area consist of four claim blocks of prospective geology totaling almost 67,290 hectares. Included in the property package is the Poplar copper deposit where an historical indicated mineral resource of 131 million tonnes grading 0.31 per cent copper, 0.009 per cent molybdenum, 0.09 gram per tonne gold and 2.39 grams per tonne silver and a historical inferred mineral resource of 132 million tonnes grading 0.27 per cent Cu, 0.005 per cent Mo, 0.07 g/t Au and 3.75 g/t Ag has been identified through the drilling of 147 historical holes.
