SASKATOON, Jan. 27, 2012 /CNW/ - 49 North Resources Inc. ("49 North")
(TSXV: FNR) reports that its joint venture partner, Westcore Energy
Ltd. ("Westcore") (TSXV: WTR), has announced the upcoming launch of its
major winter drilling campaign on its FNR JV coal project located near
The Pas, Manitoba. The FNR JV drill program is planned for 15-20 holes
(2,200 meters) and will be two-fold in its objectives. First, to
complete the delineation drilling on the Quasar Main and Quasar
Satellite coal deposits in order that they may be incorporated into a
NI 43-101 resource report and second, to drill a large new target that
has similar geophysical characteristics to deposits on Westcore's Black
Diamond properties. Westcore as operator anticipates providing updates
on a regular basis in the upcoming weeks, which will be news released
as they are received. Highlights from the 2011 drill program on the
FNR JV project can be found in Westcore's news release of March 30,
49 North looks forward to this year's winter drilling campaign to
continue validating and expanding this coal project as it has large
size potential in terms of both thickness and lateral extent. The
project consists of 5 coal permits covering a large area of western
Manitoba and eastern Saskatchewan, comprising approximately 10,273
hectares in aggregate. 49 North entered into a joint venture agreement
with Westcore in 2010 (see 49 North news release of April 22, 2010 for full details) to explore these properties.
Westcore has collected a 500 kilogram bulk sample currently being tested
by Quantex Energy Ltd. a Calgary, Alberta based company developing a
coal to liquefaction process for extracting synthetic crude and
high-value carbon products from coal in an ultra-clean and
environmentally friendly manner.
