TORONTO, Aug. 30 /CNW/ - Richmond Minerals Inc. ("Richmond") is pleased to provide the following corporate project update regarding the Hallé Township joint venture with Fort Chimo Minerals (CNQ: FORT) near Belleterre, Québec.
All necessary permits for the diamond drilling programme have now been received from Long Point First Nation and Société de protection des forets contre le feu. Drilling work is scheduled to begin during the week of September 6, 2010.
Geophysical data from the detailed ground EM and magnetic surveys completed earlier this summer has been reviewed and eight priority targets have been selected for the first phase of drilling. The anticipated meterage is for 2400 metres of drilling. In particular, 4 holes are targeted for the north and south anomalies.
As described in previous news releases, joint venture management believes the Hallé Township project is a newly discovered polymetallic volcanogenic massive sulphide occurrence. Grab sampling of the limited surface outcrops in the target area has returned base metal values in excess of 1%, and highly anomalous precious metal values. A review of historical assessment files indicates no definitive historical exploration work in the target area.
