Monster Mining Corp. has completed its 2011 Keno-Lightning and McKay Hill exploration programs and has received the results and interpretation of the airborne geophysical program conducted in June this year. SkyTEM Surveys conducted a 1920 line kilometre TDEM survey. The SkyTEM system, which is capable of producing high resolution, highly accurate data from surface to depths of up to 300 m, is well-suited to identifying steeply dipping to vertical conductors and resolving minor differences in lithological conductivity. The survey was designed to generate exploration targets outside of the known occurrences and assist in structural interpretations of the geology and mineralization on Keno-Lightning.

SkyTEM Surveys has completed a project in Maniitsoq, Greenland for North Americal Nickel Inc.
The skyTEM system arrived in Maniitsoq on September 15, flying commenced on September 17 and the survey was completed on October 6. In all, a total of 2,217 line-kilometers of electromagnetic and magnetic surveying was done over two flight blocks.
Examination of the preliminary data indicates it is of good quality and that the helicopter was able to hug the terrain despite the rugged topography. A final, levelled dataset and initial interpretation is expected from SkyTEM within 7 to 8 weeks.
