Toronto, Canada (April 9, 2014) - Mammoth Resources Corp. (TSX-V: MTH) has posted the complete geophysics report, with recommendations, various surface plans and geophysical survey cross sections from the Induced Polarization and Magnetic ground geophysics survey performed in late 2013. The company announced on January 16, 2014 the completion of the survey, which covered approximately one-third of the large 15 square kilometre target area of gold and silver mineralization at its Tenoriba Property, located in the prolific Sierra Madre precious metal belt in south western Chihuahua state, Mexico (refer to the company's web site www.mammothresources.ca, for a detailed location map).
Thomas Atkins, President and CEO of Mammoth Resources commented on results from the survey, stating: "Initially, when the company received the written report and some surface plans discussing results of the geophysical survey, we were impressed by the number of targets identified by the survey. The coincidence of these geophysical targets with where we'd mapped attractive precious metal enriched rocks, with good assay results, was encouraging. Now, viewing the complete survey information, in particular the survey line cross sections, the company is very excited by the coincidence of these precious metal enriched rocks at surface and the extent to which we see these same features extending to depth in these sections. The extension of these features at depth was exactly what we'd hoped for from this survey. Our next steps are to design a drill program to test these features at depth. We anticipate a first phase drill program consisting of 15 to 20 drill holes totalling 2,500 to 3,000 metres and expect to report on the results of this planning and the nature of these targets in the coming weeks. The company has been seeking quotations for such a program and it's likely no surprise that high drill rig availability offers terrific economies for drilling at this time. The company is also advancing the permitting process, including having consulted with those involved in the process at the state ministry office and is optimistic of receiving permits with little issue."
Ground Induced Polarization / Magnetic Geophysical Survey:
The geophysical surveys were performed over three grids, each grid consisting of north-south oriented lines spaced at 100 metre intervals. Line lengths varied from 1.2 kilometres to 2.5 kilometres, often depending on topography and ease of access in which to conduct the ground survey. A total of 32.2 linear kilometres were surveyed. The complete report, including all maps, plans and sections available in the appendices section following the written report, is available on the company's website, at: www.mammothresources.ca , Projects Section, Technical Reports.
Numerous cross sections, including: section 58400E in the El Moreno geophysical grid, section 59800E and 59900E in the Masuparia grid and sections 60500E and 61300E in the los Carneritos grid, which can be seen in the appendices section of the report, are good illustrations of intriguing geophysical features in particular in the Resistivity-True Depth interpretative section portion in these survey sections where such features are indicated as occurring near surface (where the company has mapped and sampled elevated precious metal values in attractive host rocks) and extending to depths greater than 100 metres.
