Val-d’Or, Quebec, January 14, 2014, – Knick Exploration Inc.(TSX-V: KNX) is pleased to report that it will be concentrating its exploration effort on its tungsten assets of the Trecesson Property for the immediate future. The tungsten area is host to 2 main veins. The number 9 vein having a strike length of 450 meters and reported widths up to 7 meters and the Scheelite Vein which has been traced for a length of 250 meters. Initial 2013 grab samples results from “Vein No. 9″ by Knick ran 0.64%, 0.63% and 0.55% tungsten tri-oxide and agrab sample that assayed 420.37g/t gold returned 0.2% tungsten-trioxide. The Scheelite Vein area has returned tungsten with gold as 3.2% tungsten tri-oxide (WO3) in a grabsample which assayed 51g/tgold.
The tungsten affiliation with gold in the Trecesson Batholith vein systems increases the potential of outlining economical deposits in the area.
World demand for tungsten is continuing to increase. China controls approximately 80% of the market followed by the former USSR with about 8%. Typical grades for tungsten are 0.3 to 1.5% tungsten tri-oxide for veins, lower for stockworks.
The property covers most of the Trecesson Batholith which has similar characteristics to the Bourlamaque Batholith of the Val d‘ Ormining camp. Tungsten was produced during the war effort at Sigma Mines peripheral to the Bourlamaque Batholith and is present at the Beaufor mine within the batholith.
The property is located 12 km north of the town of Amos and approximately 65 km north northwest of Val d‘ Or. The Trecesson Gold Property is traversed by paved and all weather gravel roads making it accessible year round.
Grab samples are selective by nature and are unlikely to represent the average grade of the mineralized zone. All assay laboratory results stated above have been previously released.
Samples were sent to Expert Laboratory in Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec for analysis.
Fire assay, multi element scan and XRF method were implemented for analysis.
Standards and blanks are submitted by Knick routinely to insure quality control.
