Logan Resources applies for coal permits south and west of Goldsource discovery, Saskatchewan

    VANCOUVER, July 16 /CNW/ - Logan Resources Ltd. (TSXV:LGR) today
announced that it has made application for coal permits covering three
prospective areas to the south and west of Goldsource Mines Inc.'s Border coal
discovery in eastern Saskatchewan. In spring of 2008, Goldsource reported
results from its discovery, comprised of two diamond drill hole intersections,
1.6 km apart, each of which intersected 27 to 34 metres of coal, and 22 to 24
metres of which occurred as a single seam. Coal samples analysed returned
grades between High Volatile Bituminous C and Sub-Bituminous A.
    The nature of historic coal occurrences hosted by the Mannville Group
strongly suggests widespread deposition of coal-forming plant material along a
broad shoreline during Mannville time. The first two groups of permits for
which Logan has applied enclose areas where Upper Cretaceous rocks overlie
prospective Mannville Group shoreline rocks and where existing geophysical
data support the possibility of significant coal occurrences.
    The third permit application encloses an area 500 km to the west, where
Mannville Group sedimentary rocks underlie a thin cover of glacial drift
proximal to the upper contact with the overlying Colorado Group and where
existing geophysical data also support the possibility of a significant coal
