Northern Lights Resources Corp. has received approval from the US Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to commence drilling at the Secret Pass Gold Project in Mohave County, Arizona.

A total of 15 holes, for 2300 m, have been approved for drilling at 12 target prospects on the Secret Pass BLM mining claims. The BLM mining claims at Secret Pass have a total area of 656 hectares and account for the majority of the total license area, comprising of the northern section of the project license area as well as the FM zone in the southeast quadrant of the project area.

The permit to drill an additional five holes, for 1150 m, at the Tin Cup prospect on the State Exploration Permit area (212 hectares) is pending approval from the Arizona State Land Department. The company expects to receive the approval to drill the planned holes at Tin Cup in the coming weeks.

The targeted prospects have been identified by Northern Lights through a systematic exploration program over the past six months that has included an airborne magnetic survey, reinterpretation of historic Induced Polarization (IP) data, detailed mapping, and the collection of over 400 stream and pan concentrate samples (final assays and interpretation pending).

CEO, Jason Bahnsen, commented “We are delighted to receive permits to commence drilling at the Secret Pass Gold Project. Preparation of drill access roads will begin immediately and our drilling contractor is planning to be on site by 5 April. Drilling will initially focus on the Fiery Squid and Tentacles prospects before where we see significant potential associated with numerous historic workings at each of the prospect sites.”
