GIS aids the commencement of geology field program in South Chile

Geocom Resources Inc. has recently announced that it has commenced a field program in southern Chile. Having confirmed the existence of anomalous gold, copper, and other elements in the 2005 program, Geocom geologists have targeted specific areas for follow-up sampling to identify the source of the anomalous metals. Prior to commencing the 2006 field program, the database was digitized and analysed with GIS to facilitate target identification. Results of the 2005 exploration program validated the regional database that the Company used to identify mineralized terrains, and provided the means to select the most prospective areas for additional work. The Company has accordingly targeted four areas that have been sampled and are highly anomalous in gold and copper. These terrains were identified through analysis of a proprietary database assembled by Geocom’s consultant. Multiple samples in the regional database and samples obtained by the Company contain gold, copper, and other elements that management considers to be compelling evidence that specific areas and geologic occurrences are worthy of additional exploration.
