Vancouver, BC – AmmPower Corp. (CSE: AMMP) (OTCQB: AMMPF) (FSE: 601A) (the “Company” or “AmmPower”), is pleased to announce it AmmPower has engaged Paterson, Grant & Watson (PGW) for interpretation work to be done on an airborne magnetic surveys over the Whabouchi South Property, Eeyou Istchee Baie-James region, Province of Québec. The property is located in the Lac de Montagnes volcano-sedimentary belt in the northeastern part of the Superior province.
The main target commodity of the Whabouchi South property is lithium bearing pegmatite. The general Lac de Montagnes area has the potential to host a variety of deposit types such as magmatic nickel-copper sulphide, VMS, Sedex, Gold, Chromite, Banded Iron Formations and Uranium deposits. The main goal of this geophysical interpretation program is to better define the structural and lithological controls of mineralization in the area. This includes identification of major regional structures and extension of intrusives underneath the surficial cover. Magnetic inversions and modelling will assist to define follow-up targets for drilling.
AmmPower Corp. had previously engaged Prospectair to fly a helicopter magnetic only survey at a 25 m line spacing that was completed recently.

Figure 2 – General Geology of Survey Area
The general geology of the Whabouchi South property is a band of paragneisses (brown) with local pegmatites (magenta), tonalitic gneisses (grey) and amphibolized basalts and ultramafics (greens). A preliminary look at the magnetic image shows a small magnetic mafic/ultramafic intrusion in the centre of the property. Linear magnetic features along the north end of the property may be a WSW trending dyke or thin basaltic layers.
The following survey parameters were noted from the survey contractor’s technical report.
- Flight Line Spacing: 25 m traverse lines and 250 m control lines
- Flight Line Direction: 0o (North-South)
- Average magnetic sensor height: 18 m
- Total line kilometers flown : 566 km
At this line spacing, the output grids will have a resolution of 5 m, a value that is 1/5th of the line-spacing. This will have a direct impact on the resolution at which the data will be interpreted.
Below is describe the data processing and interpretation routine proposed by PGW:
1) PREPARATION OF DATA INTERPRETATION PRODUCTS
First the data will be inspected for any remaining flight line noise. In case we find it necessary, we will apply microlevelling procedures to ensure that the data is free of any flight-induced artefacts and that all the observed lineaments are of geological nature. Then we will produce the following images, all from the microlevelled IGRF-corrected total magnetic intensity. Some of these images might be already available from Prospectair’s final processed data. They will only be re-processed in case we apply microlevelling routines.
- IGRF-corrected total magnetic field
- Pole-reduced magnetic field
- First vertical derivative of the pole-reduced magnetic field
- Second vertical derivative of the pole-reduced magnetic field
- Tilt derivative (local phase) of the pole-reduced magnetic field
- Analytic signal amplitude of the total magnetic field
- Digital elevation model from the airborne survey
- Depth to basement using Source Parameter Imaging (SPI) and Tilt derivative method
- The following semi-automated techniques will be applied:
- Source-edge detection – locates contacts and can be used to trace anomaly axes. These are displayed in vector form and are superimposed on one of the above-mentioned maps.
- VOXI – an unconstrained magnetic inversion model using the Magnetization Vector Inversion (MVI) technique.
- Specific magnetic anomalies may be modelled using the ModelVision and/or QuickMag software packages.
2) INTERPRETATION OF THE GEOPHYSICAL AND GEOLOGICAL DATA
The interpretation of the magnetic data will be performed at a scale of 1:10,000 or a scale as
defined by AmmPower Corp.
The interpretation will delineate the following:
- Contacts between the main lithological units (according to the measured magnetic
- susceptibility contrasts). The contacts will be separated as well defined, gradual or covered.
- Surface lithology as defined by the magnetic data.
- Lithologic units that are buried, identified from the magnetic data.
- Zones of alteration (e.g. magnetite depletion), where apparent.
- Foliation and shear zones defined by form line mapping of the magnetic data.
- Dip and dip direction of geological contacts, when evident or when they have a noticeable geophysical response.
- Folds (anticlines/synclines), where apparent.
- Faults and their lateral and/or vertical displacement, where apparent. Faults will be separated as regional and local fault systems.
- Tectonic/fault history, by establishing the age relationships between the different fault systems
- Lithological interpretation and internal zonation of the different identified units based on magnetic data.
- Target areas designated for high mineral potential and recommendations for follow-up (ground geophysics, geochemical sampling, detailed field mapping, drilling, etc.)
Regional aeromagnetic data is available through Québec and Canada data servers with a resolution of 75 m. This data will be used to provide a regional context.

3) INVERSION AND MODELLING
Inversion and modelling will be carried out on the magnetic data. The magnetic data will be inverted using Geosoft’s VOXI modelling program. This will result in a voxel and isosurfaces of the magnetic susceptibility.
VOXI Modelling Background
“In the majority of voxel-based inversions, it is assumed that the magnetic response arises entirely from magnetic induction. In these cases, reliable and fast results can be obtained using the conventional magnetic inversion; however, if remanent magnetization is suspected or when dealing with low magnetic latitudes, more reliable results can be achieved by modelling both the field direction and its magnitude. Magnetization Vector Inversion (MVI) incorporates both remanent and induced magnetization without any prior knowledge of the direction or strength of remanent magnetization.”
