CC19-06 was drilled downdip
of CC19-02, the latter having ended in mineralization.
The first orientation drill hole, PDRC263, drilled in an easterly direction at Target 2, encountered pegmatite 'downdip
' of the outcrop from which the 17 rock chips containing spodumene returned assays between 1.65% and 3.70% Li2O (See Table 1 for drill hole locations and Figure 2 in link below).
Results of underground drilling continuously extended the major mineralized vein structures along strike and downdip
and exploration tunneling exposed high grade mineralization zones within major production vein structures.
Some fine-grained sandstone layers display sigmoidal-like stratification (F12A) characterized by foresets that thin and flat downdip
and updip into tangential bottomsets and topsets.
The strata offshore are known only by extrapolation downdip
from the onshore, and from one borehole offshore Quebec in the vicinity of New Brunswick's jurisdiction (Bradelle L-49, Fig.
In this case, presence of highly viscous oil near the oil/water contact has forced production from updip and would be a serious obstacle for downdip
water injection due to mobility difference .
The major reason for well failure is its location as it was drilled downdip
making it unsuccessful.
AASE-10X was spudded on December 13, 2011 and is located on the central western flank of the AASE field, downdip
of the AASE-4X producer.
Pearson commented: 'The Titan 24 Survey, coupled with our drill results to date, confirms that the mineralized structure at Hope Brook is very extensive both along strike and downdip
. This survey combined with Castillian's detailed IP surveys has outlined a number of targets for future drilling.
The Bucaramanga nest occurs on the downdip
continuation of the Panama arc and may reflect ongoing breakoff of oceanic crust from the Panama arc block that has become impeded in the zone of shallow subduction.
