/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO US WIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED
STATES OF AMERICA/
HALIFAX, April 18, 2013 /CNW/ - Oceanus Resources Corporation (TSXV: OCN)
("Oceanus" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has contracted MPX
Geophysics Ltd. of Markham Ontario, to conduct a helicopter-borne geophysical
survey on its recently acquired La Lajita property covering over 3,200
hectares in Durango, Mexico. The La Lajita property is located in the Sierra
Madre Occidental known for its numerous gold-silver mines.
The airborne survey is scheduled to commence later this month. The flight
pattern takes into account the geological trend and the major structures
interpreted from geological mapping and satellite imagery. A total of 521
kilometers will be flown covering an area of 32 square kilometers.
The high sensitivity aeromagnetic survey is designed to detect any major
structure or underlying intrusion known to be associated with the gold
mineralization in the district. The radiometrics will identify with more
accuracy the zones of alteration. Argillic and silica alteration zones will be
the object of a ground follow up, supported by mapping, prospecting and
Oceanus will integrate this new data with existing geological mapping and
historical exploration records to generate an interpretation that will be used
to direct a more focused gold exploration program. Oceanus will study the
correlation between the identified structures to the known gold occurrences
and alteration zones on the property.
