VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 4, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ximen Mining Corp. (the "Company" or "Ximen") (TSX-V:XIM) (OTCQX:XXMMF) is pleased to announce that the ground magnetometer/VLF-EM survey on the Brett property is underway. Scott Geophysics has mobilized to the property and has begun the first ever geophysical survey on the claims. A minimum of 50 line kilometers of ground geophysics is planned, with 2 km long, 50 metre spaced east-west lines covering the southern part of the property.
The survey is designed to identify structures and zones of magnetite destructive alteration related to the epithermal gold system. The east-west oriented survey lines allows a good test of possible north, northwest and northeast trending structures, any of which could be important conduits for mineralization. The known Main Shear/RW zone will be covered by the geophysical survey, to provide an example of the geophysical signature that can be expected over this style of mineralization. The success of the geophysics at delineating structures and alteration zones will be evaluated after the initial 50 line-km has been completed, and if warranted, the survey will be extended to cover additional ground to the north. However since new discoveries have been made by the Ximen field crew as announced yesterday the survey will be expanded to 70 line-km. Currently 35 line-km have been completed.
