VANCOUVER, Sept. 24 /CNW/ - Copper Ridge Explorations Inc. ("Copper
Ridge" or the "Company") announces that Riverside Resources ("Riverside" -
RRI.V) has commenced a 700-meter diamond drill program at the Company's 100%
owned Scheelite Dome project, an intrusion-related gold system in the Tintina
Gold Belt, Yukon. The target is a gold-bearing vein stockwork located at the
center of a large (40 km2) gold-in-soil anomaly. Riverside has an option to
earn a 65% interest in the property from Copper Ridge. The road-accessible
property is located 25 km northwest of the town of Mayo and 45 km southwest of
the Dublin Gulch intrusion-related gold deposit.
Previous drill programs testing the Aorta structural corridor at
Scheelite Dome have returned long intervals of gold mineralization including
54.9 meters of 0.45 g/t (RC97-11), 43.4 meters of 0.56 g/t (SH98-10),
20.3 meters at 1.03 g/t (SH99-23), 8.9 meters of 1.81 g/t (SH99-24), and
15.8 meters of 1.88 g/t (SH98-12). The current program will offset these holes
and test for continuity of mineralization adjacent to a sericite-altered
monzonite dike. The target is a shallow, low-grade, bulk-mineable,
intrusion-related gold deposit.
Copper Ridge is operator of the program. Mr. Greg Dawson, VP Exploration
for Copper Ridge is the Qualified Person for the Scheelite Dome Project and is
responsible for the technical content of this news release.
Copper Ridge's exploration philosophy focuses on maximizing the potential
for success in a high-risk business. With grass roots mineral exploration,
where the entry cost is low but the potential reward can be very high, success
will be contingent on exploration skill and on carefully managed risk. Our
management team brings tenacity, technical skill and experience, all crucial
ingredients for discovery. By exploring a broad array of projects, focusing on
the right commodities, in areas of high mineral potential, in mining-friendly
jurisdictions and by sharing the risks on some projects with joint venture
partners, Copper Ridge is exposing its shareholders to a greater chance for
discovery. The Company is well financed for the 2007 field program on its
Yukon and British Columbia properties.
