Boxxer Gold Corp. completes National Instrument 43-101 Technical Report on its Buena Vista project

CALGARY, May 27, 2013 /CNW/ - Boxxer Gold Corp. (BXX-TSXV; OTC -BXXRF) ("Boxxer" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the recommendations of an independent National Instrument 43-101 Technical Report, Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects ("NI 43-101"), on its 100% owned Buena Vista copper project, located in Churchill County, North Central Nevada.

The Technical Report on the Buena Vista Project dated April 25, 2013 was prepared by Phil Van Angeren P.Geol., Qualified Persons as defined by NI 43-101. The report has been filed on SEDAR and will be available for viewing under the company's profile at www.sedar.com and on the company website at www.boxxergold.com. Highlights of the Technical Report are set out below:

Highlights:

    a)   The stratigraphic, structural, geophysical and geochemical features of the Buena Vista property suggest that it has excellent potential to host iron-oxide-copper-gold (IOCG-style) mineralization,
    b)   The encouraging results from Boxxer's 2006/07 & 2012 exploration and from the geophysical anomalies indicated in 2010, continued surface exploration is warranted for Phase I,
    c)   Trenching is recommended for the more significant mineralized exposures (e.g., the CS series of occurrences, and the 2006 rock-sample sites). Phase I is budgeted at US $178,000, and
    d)   Phase II will follow Phase I, with up to 1,500 meters (15,000 ft) of core drilling, evidently contingent upon results from Phase I. The objective of the drilling program will be to test the lateral and depth continuity of the geological and geophysical targets deemed to be of highest priority by Phase I. Of particular interest will be the IP1, MT2-MT3, IP4/MT5 and the IP6/MT6 anomalies. A budget of US $857,000 is recommended to complete this second phase of exploration.
         

Future Activities:

During the next Quarter, Boxxer is focusing on completion of National Instrument 43-101 technical reports on the Gordon Lake gold project and the Boss copper project. Boxxer is currently seeking partners to conduct exploration on all of its projects. The corporate strategy implemented by Boxxer in 2009 to work only in North America, focus on large polymetallic copper projects with good logistics offers potential partners a safe geopolitical climate in which to conduct exploration activities. Boxxer has re-structured its activities to prioritized and achieve the maximum amount of data for the dollars expended. Boxxer is currently considering completing ground geophysical surveys to further delineate and gain a better understanding of the recently identified airborne anomalies (including the East Breccia zone and the West Breccia zone of copper mineralization) to identify diamond drill targets.
