Wolfden Resources Corp. has announced results from recently completed diamond drilling on its 100%-owned Orvan Brook property.
The property is well located proximal to infrastructure, approximately 35 km west of the City of Bathurst and 15 km east-northeast of Trevali Mining Corp.’s Caribou mine and mill facility, in the prolific Bathurst Mining Camp of northeastern New Brunswick.
A total of 14 drill holes comprising 3239 m, were completed during the initial phase of drilling on the Orvan Brook deposit, over an intermittent strike length of 1.5 km (Figure 1). All of the drilling tested the deposit at shallow to moderate depths of up to 300 vertical metres with the exception of drill hole OB-17-14, that tested the deposit at a vertical depth of 400 vertical m. Highlighting the drill results are intercepts of 7.15% Zn, 2.35% Pb, 0.13% Cu, 56.8 g/t Ag & 0.44 g/t Au over 3.20 m (OB-17-2), 7.38% Zn, 2.25% Pb, 0.45% Cu, 75.6 g/t Ag & 0.55 g/t Au over 5.30 m (OB-17- 08) and 4.49% Zn, 1.26% Pb, 0.22% Cu, 32.4 g/t Ag & 0.25 g/t Au over 5.40 m (OB-17-14). The remaining assays from the drilling programme are tabulated above.
A second phase of drilling has commenced testing the deeper levels of the deposit in the locale of drill hole OB-17- 14 and other historic holes, that intersected 8.16% Zn, 2.85% Pb, 0.28% Cu & 82.9 g/t Ag over 5.47 m as well as 7.37% Zn, 2.31% Pb, 0.44% Cu & 89.2 g/t Ag over 5.62 m (Area of Interest on Longitudinal Section). Here, thicker intercepts of existing mineralisation are currently thought to offer the best chance of defining a mineral resource with significant grades. Assays from the second phase of drilling will be released as they become available. The technical information in this news release has been prepared and approved by Donald Hoy, President, CEO and a Director of the company. Mr. Hoy is a Qualified Person for the purposes of National Instrument 43-101.
