TORONTO, Feb. 25, 2014 /CNW/ - Asher Resources Corporation (the "Company") is pleased to announce a drill permit has been received for its Lavington gold property east of Vernon, British Columbia. The exploration program will comprise a minimum 3 hole, 950 meter drill program testing under, and adjacent to historic drill holes, most notably a 125 meter (drilled width) intersection of 0.307 g/t gold.
"Several junior exploration gold companies in 2013 experienced great success advancing their British Columbia projects with significant gold discoveries having been made. Lavington represents an excellent gold target and Asher looks forward to advancing Lavington with its drill program which is to commence end of May 2014" commented Richard Buzbuzian, President and CEO.
The bulk of the known mineralization on the property occurs within a 2.5 kilometre by 200-400 metre wide "siliceous-sericitic-pyritic" "shear" zone. The zone was defined by strong gold, arsenic, copper, zinc, and lead in soil values. Within this zone, 8 widely spaced holes were drilled with hole # 7 producing the most significant intersection (all intersections are drilled width) 0.543 g/t Au over 34 m, within a larger interval of 125 metres averaging 0.307 g/t gold. This mineralization is partially undercut by the bottom of hole 2 which returned 0.253 g/t gold over 46 metres. Holes 2, 5, 6, 7 and 8 were terminated in the Lavington mineralized zone and in gold-copper mineralization. The best known mineralization is also associated with a discreet IP anomaly.
The upcoming three-hole Phase I program will undercut many of the historic drill holes. An eastward step out drill hole along strike will test a yet un-drilled section of the IP anomaly coincident with a multi-element soil anomaly and known rock mineralization.

The Lavington property, which Asher has recently expanded to 3,139.26 hectares, encompasses a 3 by 8 kilometre area hosting multiple and extensive gold showings of greater than 100 ppb gold in soil and rock samples. Many of these areas were first discovered in the late 1980's and never received additional exploration making Lavington a very under explored and an attractive gold-copper porphyry exploration target.
