VANCOUVER, June 15 /CNW/ - Callinan Mines has intersected a quartz zone
bearing 15.40 gm/mt gold across 0.47m at their Berry Creek property near Snow
Lake, Manitoba. This zone is included in a larger width assaying 1.26 gm/mt of
gold across 6.49m. The gold bearing structure was intersected in diamond drill
hole BR1 between 29.60m and 36.12m. A second gold zone was intersected in hole
BR2, returning assays of 0.264 gm/mt gold across 1.13m of core length,
including 1.63 gm/mt Au over 0.52m.
The gold zone at Berry Creek appears to be fairly shallow, dipping at 29
degrees - 43 degrees. The drilling was carried out near the mining community
of Snow Lake, the home of an established infrastructure and an experienced
workforce near the former producing New Britannia gold mine.
The company plans to begin surface mobile metal ion (MMI) testing,
prospecting and trenching immediately to determine the length of the zone in
preparation for additional exploration drilling.
The drilling program consisted of three diamond drill holes "fanned" from
the same collar location. Hole BR3 intersected a quartz zone bearing low
values. True widths of the mineralized zones remain unknown. The Berry Creek
property is under option from Peter Dunlop.
Callinan Mines maintained a QA/QC program at all stages of exploration.
Core recovery was calculated, measured and observed at a company facility in
Snow Lake before being cut at the same facility. Core was cut in half, one
half being returned to the core tray for storage and the other half placed in
pre-labeled plastic bags, tagged with the sample number and recorded in the
log. A gold standard, packed with predetermined gold values was inserted with
every 30 samples. A blank standard, a rock with low gold values, was also
inserted. Samples were then shipped to Acme Analytical Laboratories in
Vancouver, BC, where they were crushed, pulverized and sieved into
approximately 500 g samples, +150 and -150 mesh, saved and split. Metallics
were then weighted and samples assayed using fire assay. The lab employs
internal quality control by assaying pulp duplicates and inserting a quality
control standards of predetermined gold values and a blank sample.
