PANAMA CITY, Nov. 28 /CNW/ -- Bellhaven Copper & Gold, Inc. (TSX-Venture:
BHV) ("Bellhaven" or the "Company") in conjunction with its joint venture
partner Dominion Minerals Corp. (Pink Sheets: EMPL), (formally known as Empire
Minerals Corp.), is pleased to announce the completion of the drill program at
the Cerro Chorcha Copper Project. The eleven holes, totaling 3,615.80 meters,
have been completed and all holes encountered mineralization in the form of
stockwork veining, breccias, and disseminations. The Company is eagerly
anticipating the lab results so it can begin its geological analysis, update
its N.I. 43-101 resource estimate, and begin field work in preparation for the
next drill campaign at Chorcha (which should commence in early 2008).
So far the companies have released results for 3 of the 11 holes and are
in possession of preliminary copper and gold results for holes 4 and 5;
however are still waiting on multiple samples that returned greater than 1%
copper as those samples require an additional testing method to produce
specific copper percentages over 1%. Once the Companies have received the
final assays, they will publish the complete results for either or both holes
depending on when they are received.
Julio Benedetti, President and CEO of Bellhaven, had this to say:
"We are very pleased to have successfully concluded the phase one drill
program at Cerro Chorcha and are anxious to receive complete results so that
we may begin planning for the future. Because of severe delays caused by an
unusually high amount of volume at Acme Analytical Laboratories in Vancouver,
we have decided to utilize a different analytical service (SGS Laboratories
Peru) in order to expedite the reception of results from holes 7-11. We are
eager to release the results from each hole as they are received."
