CALGARY, Dec. 6, 2012 /CNW/ - Boxxer Gold Corp. (BXX-TSXV; OTC -BXXRF) ("Boxxer" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has executed contracts with Fugro Airborne Surveys ("Fugro") to complete high resolution geophysical surveys over the East Breccia copper-molybdenum-silver property, as well as the recently acquired mineral claims located approximately 60 kilometres north of Sault St Marie, Ontario.
Boxxer's President and CEO, Elmer B. Stewart, explained; "The airborne geophysical surveys are expected to be completed before the end of December 2012. The objective of the airborne surveys is to identify new areas of mineralized breccia that may have been covered with overburden, and to fully understand the scope of the East Breccia project. The data from these surveys will be used along with the historical and current diamond drilling information to plan the next phase of drilling on the East Breccia zone. The historical exploration data shows that in addition to the East Breccia and West Breccia zones of copper mineralization, three additional mineralized breccias were identified by mapping completed in the late 1960's."
Fugro has been contracted to complete a Horizontal Gradient Magnetic survey and a Time Domain Electromagnetic survey over the East Breccia property. A total of 540 line kilometres of surveys are planned with a line spacing of 200 metres. Tie lines with intervals of 2,000 meters are also planned. The surveys are to commence immediately and are expected to be completed before the end of December 2012.
