In the Technical Report Howe recommends an underground exploration programme to convert the deeper sulphide resources into reserves that may ultimately to be included in a mining plan.
The first hole FW-06-02 tested a geophysically inferred extension of a massive sulphide intersection drilled in 2004 by KWG and Spider, where hole McF-04-40 on Line 1800 NE on this same conductor, intersected 2.
The exploration of the new base metal discovery has continued throughout the year with recognition that the style of mineralization and geological setting of the deposit appears typical of other Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide (VMS) deposits in the Camp.
The marked base-metal increase towards the stronger part of the anomaly is very promising for this zone, pointing to the possibility of an economic massive sulphide mineralization.
The drill program continued to confirm extensive broad areas of sulphide mineralization with polymetallic (Au, Cu, Zn & Ag) values in a major volcanogenic massive sulphide-epithermal environment.
TSX VENTURE:GA) is pleased to announce that a drill program to test several anomalies outlined by an airborne survey flown in April, 2005 over its Wapawekka property intersected copper-zinc sulphide mineralization in a zone parallel and about 500 m distant from the massive sulphide zone intersected in 2001 by three drill-holes.
The Okreb area, located approximately 10 kilometers east of the Bisha massive sulphide deposit is underlain by late Proterozoic aged metasediments and associated intrusive rocks.
