VANCOUVER, Jan. 26, 2012 /CNW/ - Decade Resources Ltd. ("Decade" or the "Company") reports it has received assay results for a further 8 drill holes. These holes were completed on the Upper Montrose zone at its Red Cliff project in Northwestern British Columbia. The Red Cliff is a gold/copper property consisting of 8 Crown granted mineral claims located approximately 25 miles north of the town of Stewart, British Columbia. The 2011 field season has extended the gold bearing zone up to 500 metres along strike and 250 metres of depth. It remains open in all directions. The 2011 drilling has greatly aided in defining the strike and dip of the Upper Montrose zone as well as outlining a 10 metre thick post mineral dyke that cuts through the mineralization in a NE direction with a shallow dip to the west. At surface, this dyke obscures the trend of the zone towards the NE.
In addition, this work indicates that a second fault bound gold bearing zone is present to the SE along Lydden Creek. It appears to parallel the NE strike of the Upper Montrose and only a small section is exposed in the canyon wall. This section was initially interpreted as being along strike with the Upper Montrose. Drilling from a drill deck along Lydden Creek to test in 2010 did not intersect any extension in a NW direction. Drilling in 2012 will test for strike and depth extension of this zone towards the NE. In the past, this zone has been developed along several short adits. During 1939-41 a total of 59 tonnes were reportedly mined which averaged 84.4 grams/tonne Au, 101 g/tonne Ag, 0.91% Cu, 3.5% Pb and 4.41 % Zn. The company reports these results have not been confirmed and should be used for reference purposes only.
A total of 44 drill holes were completed to intersect below and southwest of DDH-MON-2009-1-6 and below the furthest southwest holes completed in the 2010 drilling. The assays for DDH- MON-11- 1 to 27 excluding 20, 23, 25 and 26 have been announced in previous releases. The results are for holes that were completed west of DDH-MON 2009-1 to 6. Results of the latest holes shows a continuation of high gold values to the west in a down dip direction as follows:
|DDH No.||From (m)||To (m)||Width (m)||Au g/t|
Only partial assay results for DDH-MON-11-20 and 23 have been received. No results have been received for DDH-MON - 28, 30, 33 and 35. Drilling intersected the late post mineral dyke discussed above in DDH-MON-25, 26 and 34 and assay results were low in these holes. Assay results for a further 12 holes have not been received.
In the 2012 drill season, it is planned to drill both the Upper and Lower Montrose zones off existing roads as well as any new roads completed southwest of the Upper Montrose zone along Lydden Creek. This would allow for the completion of numerous different drill pads in order to test from the hanging wall side of the two zones. The Company feels that with the presence of 2 high grade zones to be delineated, 2012 drilling will outline a substantial resource. It is the Company intention to prepare a 43-101compliant resource estimate upon completion of this drilling.
All samples are assayed by Loring laboratories of Calgary, Alberta..
The Company is also awaiting the final assays from its Prince John drilling and Manitoba exploration. Once these are received, results will be released.
