VANCOUVER, March 3 /CNW/ - Beeston Enterprises Ltd. (the "Company")
(OTC-BB: BESE) is pleased to announce the completion of its 2007 exploration
program on the Ruth Lake property near 100 Mile House, BC. The property is
favourably situated along the Quesnel Trough, a renowned geologic belt that
hosts numerous base and precious metal deposits along with current and
formerly producing mines. It is also located 10 kilometres east of GWR
Resource's property where ongoing exploration continues to delineate
significant alkalic copper-gold deposits.
In 2007 Mr. Rob Shives of GamX Inc. conducted a detailed review of newly
acquired airborne geophysical data for the property and surrounding region.
Mr. Shives was formerly the head of the Radiation Division of the Geological
Survey of Canada and has over 20 years of experience in application of
airborne surveys in the search for mineral deposits throughout Canada.
The geophysical review identified five areas ("targets") in the western
part of the property with geophysical signatures worthy of investigation for
alkalic copper-gold porphyry deposits. Each target was explored by geochemical
soil sampling and prospecting. Anomalous copper-in-soil was detected near the
edge of one target (M-20) in the west-central part of the property. Field
crews reported copper mineralization along a newly constructed logging road
near this area.
Historic assessment reports dating to the 1970s indicate that exploration
was conducted in the southern part of the Ruth Lake property around a mineral
occurrence known as the Math showing. Sporadic molybdenum-in-soil geochemical
anomalies were reported over a north-south length of 750 metres. Molybdenite
and small amounts chalcopyrite are described as disseminations and fracture
fillings in altered, silicified and locally quartz veined granitic float and
bedrock. Some drilling was reportedly done however there are no records of the
A $35,000 work program is recommended to evaluate the M-20 copper soil
anomaly and the area of the Math showing. Proposed work includes detailed soil
sampling, prospecting and rock sampling. The results should determine whether
further exploration such as geophysical surveys, trenching and/or drilling is
Exploration on the Ruth 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.
