Wolfden begins planning for 2014 exploration program in the Bathurst Mining Camp in New Brunswick
THUNDER BAY, ON, Jan. 22, 2014 /CNW/ - Wolfden Resources Corporation (WLF:TSX-V) ("Wolfden" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has begun planning for a 2014 exploration program to be completed on its recently acquired Tetagouche property (the "Property"), situated in the Bathurst Mining Camp in northeastern New Brunswick. The large Property, comprising greater than 30,000 hectares, contains 5 historic massive sulphide deposits and numerous mineral occurrences (see Image 1). The Company also announces that it has dropped its option on the adjoining Armstrong Brook Property.
Deposits situated on the Tetagouche Property include the Armstrong A, Armstrong B, Rocky Turn, McMaster and Canoe Landing Lake deposits (see Wolfden Press Release dated December 9, 2013) and are host to historic resources as tabulated below1.
|DEPOSIT||TONNAGE||%ZN||%PB||%CU||g/t AG||g/t AU|
|Canoe Landing Lake||23,800,000||1.82||0.64||0.56||32.23||1.17|
All of the deposits are historical estimates that have not been prepared in accordance with with National Instrument 43-101 and cannot be relied upon. A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the above estimates as current mineral resources and accordingly, the Company is not treating the historic estimates as current mineral resources.
Deposits including McMaster and Rocky Turn have not been drilled since the late 1960's and are open at depth as well as along strike. The Canoe Landing Lake deposit will be assessed for its potential to host smaller tonnages of higher-grade base-metal mineralization and to further examine its mineral content. It is expected that these deposits will be tested in an initial modest drilling program beginning in mid-March.
Wolfden's option agreement on the Armstrong Brook Property has been terminated and the property returned to the vendor following a 10-hole diamond drilling program completed in late 2013 that failed to locate a bedrock source for numerous clusters of high-grade Zn-Pb-Ag-Au massive sulphide boulders found on the property. Based on such drilling, the evidence suggests that the boulders have likely travelled greater distances than originally thought. Notably, the Tetagouche Property contains a series of untested airborne electromagnetic anomalies (MegaTEM and Aerodat frequency-domain surveys) up-ice from the boulders that could be source areas for some of the boulders discovered on the Armstrong Brook property.
The technical information in this news release has been prepared and approved by Donald Hoy P. Geo., President and a director of the Company. Mr. Hoy is a Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101.
