TORONTO, June 18 /CNW/ - Tres-Or Resources Ltd. ("Tres-Or" or the
"Company") has extended our new discovery of kimberlite in Quebec, which we
originally reported in a news release dated June 13, 2008. The second drill
hole intersected kimberlite breccia from beneath overburden at 45 m (32 m
vertical) to 130 m (81 m vertical), at an inclination of 45 degrees. At 130 m,
the drill hole entered metasedimentary country rock until the end of the hole
at 147 m. It was drilled from the north, and thus the kimberlite-metasediment
contact at 130 m defines the southern wall of the body, which appears to be
pipe-like in shape. Like the discovery hole, this second drill hole entered
kimberlite directly from overburden, and thus the north boundary of the
kimberlite remains open.
The intersected rock is interpreted as serpentine and calcite kimberlite
carrying visually identified pyrope garnet, chrome diopside, phlogopite, and
mantle peridotite xenoliths, as well as abundant limestone xenoliths (most
less than 10 cm across), some of which carry fossils.
A third drill hole has begun in the center of the body, drilling
vertically to a target depth of 250 m in order to determine whether different
kimberlite phases may be encountered at depth.
Following completion of this vertical drill test, a second target of
similar geophysical character will be tested approximately 5 km to the
southwest. Kimberlite from each phase identified in the detail core logging
from the first three drill holes will be tested for microdiamonds and
indicator mineral chemistry, with results reported when available later this
