STEWART, BC, Sept. 4 /CNW/ - Mountain Boy Minerals Ltd announces that
drilling is being conducted by 2 drills on its 100 % owned BA claims. The BA
claims are located 30 km east of Stewart in the Skeena mining division
approximately 3 kilometers south of paved Highway 37A. This project has the
potential to host a large Kuroko type VMS deposit that has silver rich
replacement type mineralization associated with it.
DDH-2008-BA-42 intersected a wide sequence of rocks consisting of
mineralized mudstones, mudstone breccias, dacite and later replacement type
mineralization. Pyrite, sphalerite, galena, chalcopyrite and local argentite
were noted in the mineralized sequence. The company has cut and sent the hole
out for rush assay in order to aid in further hole planning.
At present, a total of 22 drill holes have now been completed on site
One drill is testing the mineralized zone from drill set-ups located in
the hanging wall of the mineralized sequence. The second drill is testing the
zone 250 meters south west from set-ups located in the footwall region of the
mineralized sequence. The first drill has indicated that the mineralized zone
widens at depth with a mineralized sequence of rocks that is at least 80
meters wide (true thickness). Drilling has indicated that the zone being
tested is at least 200 meters deep. The zone appears to dip at 45 degrees
which is parallel to the hillside on which it is located. The second drill has
intersected a zone of mineralization that appears to be 50 meters thick
extending over at least 150 meters of depth. The zone of mineralization is
exposed at surface over 500 meters of strike length.
Drilling is presently being conducted from drill pads constructed by a
small excavator which is also used to move the drills from set-up to set-up.
Drilling is on a 15 by 15 meter grid which will enable a resource calculation
at the end of the 2008 program.
A third drill will test the down dip extent of the horizon indicated in
DDH-2008-BA-42. This drill will be located approximately 150 meters lower in
elevation from DDH-2008-BA-42.
E. Kruchkowski, P. Geo., a qualified person under National Instrument
