Boxxer options DOK property in NW British Columbia


CALGARY, April 14, 2014 /CNW/ - Boxxer Gold Corp. (BXX-TSXV/OTC-BXXRF) (the "Company", or "Boxxer") is pleased to announce that it has signed an option agreement with Continental Precious Metal (TSX:CZQ) to earn up to a 75% interest in the DOK copper-gold porphyry property (the "Option Agreement"), located approximately 40 kilometres southwest of Telegraph Creek, in northwest British Columbia, Canada (the "DOK Property"). The DOK Property consists of approximately 26,365 acres.

Under the terms of the Option Agreement, Continental has the option to earn a 60% interest within 4 years by incurring total property expenditures of C$2.0M and making total cash payments of C$200,000. The cash payment schedule is as follows: C$50,000 due within 5 days of signing and three payments of $50,000 each on or before the first, second and third anniversaries of the effective date of the Option Agreement. Upon Continental earning a 60% interest, the Company shall have the option to increase its interest in DOK Property by an additional 15% to 75% by spending an additional C$3.0M on the DOK Property within 3 years.

DOK Property Highlights;
The DOK property exhibits widespread copper-gold-silver mineralization (with minor concentrations of molybdenite) in potassic altered andesite of the Stuhini Group and altered quartz monzonite, quartz diorite, and granodiorite intrusives.  The mineralization in outcrop and the altered rocks coincide with two large, copper-gold-molybdenum-silver soil geochemical anomalies.  Mapping and sampling has also located numerous other outcrops containing medium to high-grade copper-gold-silver mineralization along with significant (<100ppm) concentrations of molybdenum throughout the property. The geology and mineralization on this property exhibits many similarities with other known large alkalic porphyry copper-gold deposits located in northern British Columbia such as Galore Creek held by Nova Gold and Teck Resources Limited, Red Chris held by Imperial Metals Corporation, and Shaft Creek held by Teck Resources Limited and Copper Fox Metals Inc.

Technical Highlights
The exploration completed on the DOK property has provided some excellent results all consistent with an alkalic copper-gold porphyry environment. The data includes:


Widespread copper-gold-silver mineralization (with significant concentrations of molybdenite) occur in potassic altered volcanic rocks of the Stuhini Group and altered quartz monzonite, quartz diorite, and granodiorite intrusives. 


The mineralization in outcrop coincide with two large, copper-gold-molybdenum-silver soil geochemical anomalies.


The northwest soil geochemical anomaly measures 2,000 metres long by 1,400 metres wide. The southeast anomaly measures 1,500 metres long by 900 metres wide. Both soil geochemical anomalies are open along strike. The metal concentrations within these soil geochemical anomalies range from 200 to 9,820 parts per million ("ppm") for copper; from 0.03g/t to 2.2 g/t gold; molybdenum from 14 to 135ppm and from 0.6g/t to 84.5g/t silver.


Numerous other mineralized outcrops containing medium to high-grade copper-gold-silver mineralization along with significant (<100ppm) concentrations of molybdenum occur outside of the two geochemical anomalies.


Rock chip sampling completed within the northwest  soil geochemical anomaly during the early 1970's returned;

a)     0.66% copper over 38 metres,

b)     0.73% copper over 16 metres, 

c)     0.32% copper over 25 metres.

The gold-silver-molybdenum concentrations for these mineralized intervals were not reported.

Two of the magnetic signatures and associated soil geochemical anomalies are associated with a northwest trending, two kms wide by 10 kms long structural feature. The chip sampling results and the 81 copper occurrences located to date, occur within the structural feature. These features are cut by a prominent north-northwest trending structural feature that can be traced for a distance of 15kms.
