Belmont Tenders Bids for Exploration on Berthiaume Property-Abitibi, Quebec
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 30, 2012) - Belmont Resources Inc. ("Belmont", the "Company" or "BEA") (TSX VENTURE:BEA)(PINKSHEETS:BEAAF)(FRANKFURT:L3L) has tendered bids for line cutting and Induced Polarization (IP) surveys as recommended in the Technical Report on the two blocks of claims in the Berthiaume ( the "Be") Property.
On September 19, 2012 the Company reported a summary of the NI 43-101 Technical Report and recommendations.
The property was acquired on the basis of physiographic and geophysical data that could indicate the presence of volcanic centers. The general geological context remains favorable for other model deposits and exploration towards these models will return data that will serve to establish if the volcanic centers model can be supported.
Property Location & Access
The Be Property is located halfway between the towns of Matagami and Lebel-sur- Quevillon, Abitibi, Quebec. It consists of two designated claim blocks of eight claims covering 447.84 ha (West Block) and 23 claims covering 1,287.56 ha (East Block).
The Company is tendering bids for approx. 51.8 km of line cutting on the north and south sections of the east blocks and the west block. This will be followed by approx. 47 km of induced polarization (IP) survey with a dipole-dipole electrode configuration on 50 meter intervals. The Company is expecting to have the work commencing in November.
