Trading Symbol: TSX –MTB

STEWART, BC, Aug. 24, 2016 /CNW/ - Mountain Boy Minerals Ltd. ("Mountain Boy") reports that it has transferred 50 % of the BA claims in the "Golden Triangle" area to its JV partner, Great Bear Resources Ltd ("Great Bear") as outlined in a 2010 option agreement. Under terms of this agreement, Great Bear has transferred a 50 % ownership in the Surprise Creek claims to Mountain Boy.  The 2 properties cover approximately 40 km of a potential Kuroko type silver rich massive sulphide horizon that has been outlined in at least 6 different locations.  At present, Mountain Boy is following up on a zone discovered by geologist, Alex Walus in 2007 and further defined by Great Bear in 2010. This zone called the "Rumble Zone" is a wide barite rich exhalative horizon with galena-sphalerite-minor chalcopyrite and minor pyrite. The zone appears to be up to 60 m true width with narrower sections that contain 25-30 % sulphide. Boulders up to 1 m in diameter with the heavy sulphide have been discovered at the base of the zone shown in the photo. Based on results of the surface sampling, drilling may be planned for later in 2016. A photo of the rusty appearing "Rumble Zone" is shown below. The zone shown is exposed over at least 600 m of height and locally over 60 m in width.
