VANCOUVER, April 12 /CNW/ - Colibri Resource Corp is pleased to announce the 2000 meter drill program on the Ramard property in Sonora, Mexico has begun. The Ramard property consists of over 4000 hectares of mineral concessions located 100 km north of the city of Hermosillo, Sonora, wholly owned by Colibri's Mexican subsidiary, Minera Halcones. In 2006 and 2007, drilling was completed on the property with a small, portable core-drill rig and a percussion rig, reported in a series of 2007 press releases (see www.colibriresource.com/s/newsreleases.asp.). Drill collar locations and representative drill sections are shown at www.colibriresource.com/s/Ramard.asp.
The drill program will focus primarily on the La Bronca Zone in areas previously identified containing significant levels of silver, zinc, and lead mineralization. A direct rotary, percussion hammer rig producing a 4.5 inch diameter bore hole is being utilized at the site rather than the previously announced diamond core. Drill samples are transported daily to Inspectorate Exploration and Mining Service's prep lab in Hermosillo prior to being assayed at their lab in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Ramard Silver Project
Previous drill programs at the La Bronca and Verde Zones intercepted concentrations of up to 1235 grams per metric tonne (gpt) silver (Ag) and greater than 20% combined lead/zinc (Zn/Pb) and 1% copper (Cu) (see http://www.colibriresource.com/s/Ramard.asp) over widths of 1.5 meters, all at less than 40 meters depth from the surface. Nine of the 95 total borings contained a silver intercept greater than 310 gpt (10 troy ounces). Mineralization in the Bronca Zone (81 holes) occurs over at least 1 kilometer length, 300 meters width. All eight drill holes at the Verde Zone cut zinc mineralization within skarned calcareous shale and limestone. RPD83 cut 10.5 metres averaging 7.25% zinc between the surface and 10.5 metres depth.
