VANCOUVER, Jan. 17 /CNW/ - Beeston Enterprises Ltd. (the "Company")
(OTC-BB: BESE) announces the completion of its 2007 exploration program on the
Bluff Lake property. The property is located immediately north of GWR
Resource's property where trenching and drilling continue to delineate
significant alkalic copper-gold deposits.
Exploration on Bluff Lake commenced in 2007 with Mr. Rob Shives of GamX
Inc conducting a detailed review of the airborne geophysical survey and
existing ground data. Mr. Shives, formerly the head of the Radiation Division
of the Geological Survey of Canada, has over 20 years of experience in
application of airborne surveys in the search for porphyry copper-gold and
other deposit types throughout Canada.
The geophysical data reveals that the Bluff Lake property overlies the
northern edge of the GWR airborne geophysical anomaly. Mr. Shive's review
defined eight target areas for ground work. These targets were the subject of
geochemical soil sampling followed by prospecting and rock sampling.
Sampling on one target southeast of Bluff Lake yielded an east-southeast
trending copper-in-soil anomaly nearly 500 metres long and at least 150 metres
wide. This anomaly appears to be open to the east and west and coincides with
a zone of weathered monzonitic intrusive rocks that differ markedly from the
intrusive rocks elsewhere on the property. Prospecting near this area resulted
in the discovery of intrusive float containing abundant copper mineralization.
Analysis of this material returned 1.49% copper and 8.1 g/t silver. The
angular nature of this material suggests a nearby source.
A $165,000 work program to test the copper anomaly is planned for 2008.
Proposed work includes access road construction, trenching and diamond
Exploration on the Bluff Lake property was conducted under the
supervision of W. Gruenwald, P. Geo, of Geoquest Consulting Ltd. a "qualified
person" as defined by National Instrument 43-101.
Beeston is a B.C. based mineral exploration Company with extensive
mineral tenures in Southern British Columbia. The Company is conducting
exploration projects on the Bluff and nearby Ruth Lake properties. The company
will report on further results as they become available.
