VANCOUVER, June 21 /CNW/ - Grande Portage Resources Ltd. (TSX-V GPG) ("Grande Portage" or "the Company") is pleased to announce that it has engaged Core One Enterprises LLC. Of Delta, Colorado to conduct its upcoming drilling program at the Herbert Glacier mesothermal gold vein project in Alaska this summer.
The claims host six main composite vein-fault structures that contain ribbon structure quartz-sulfide veins. The structures strike east-west and dip steeply, mostly to the north. Only one of the six known vein systems was drilled in 1986 and 1988. All six structures locally have high-grade gold-quartz mineralization and are recommended to be drill tested.
Commencing in early August, the Company will drill (using NQ core) between 4500 feet and 7000 feet from approximately six drill sites to further test possible ore-shoots in vein no. 1 identified in historic drilling and begin to test the underground potential of several other veins found to be strongly enriched gold-bearing in surface studies done in 2007.
As well, the Company wishes to indicate that it is fully financed for the 2010 and 2011 drill seasons as per its recently announced option agreement.
