Logan Resources provides update on Redford iron ore/gold project on Pacific west coast of Vancouver Island

    VANCOUVER, June 3 /CNW/ - Logan Resources Ltd. (TSXV:LGR) today announced
an exploration program on its 100%-owned Redford iron ore/gold property
(British Columbia) and confirms preparations for the upcoming field season in
the Yukon.
    The Redford property hosts the Brynnor Iron (magnetite) deposit, located
15 km east of Ucluelet on the Pacific west coast of Vancouver Island, BC. It
is situated 12 km (7.5 miles) from tidewater which can be accessed directly
via an existing, well maintained 2-lane road.
    Two distinct ore bodies have been identified to date on the property. The
smaller, near surface ore body was open pit mined by Noranda Exploration Ltd.
from 1962 to 1967. During that period a total of 3.0 million tonnes of iron
concentrate containing an average of 63.8% iron was recovered from
4.48 million tonnes of ore mined. The second ore body, located east of the old
pit, was outlined by diamond drilling and underground development. No reserves
for the east ore body have been documented in public records; however they
likely contain a grade comparable to the deposit mined at the open pit (BC
Ministry of Energy, Mines & Petroleum Resources; Minfile Report 092F 001).
Logan Resources is currently assessing the economic potential of this
    The Company is in the process of conducting a reconnaissance soil survey
over the entire Redford property (432 claim units, 10,800 hectares). This is
the first time a soil survey of this magnitude has been performed on the
property, and will enable Logan to target areas for further investigation. The
current program will also include prospecting and sampling of some of the
historic showings on the property. These include the Fact showing, where a
grab sample returned values of 14.26 g/t gold, 13.7 g/t silver, 1.6% copper,
and 35.3% iron (BC Ministry of Energy, Mines & Petroleum Resources -
Assessment Report No.14704).
    Upon completion of the exploration program on Redford, Logan Resources
will begin field operations to evaluate its other projects in the Yukon and
northern British Columbia.
