STEWART, BC, Sept. 8 /CNW/ - Mountain Boy Minerals Ltd announces that
funding has been arranged in order to complete the logging and assaying of 38
drill holes obtained in a 2008 drill program from the BA property. The
mineralized sections in the 38 holes are similar to that in DDH-2008-42 which
intersected 65.5 meters of 112.57 g/t silver, 0.92 % lead and 1.51 % zinc.
Some of the holes had mineralization extending to a depth of 320 meters below
surface. This drilling was in a down dip direction due to the topography.
Drill hole intercepts indicate that the mineralized zone can vary from 30-80
meters in true thickness.
The company believes that the property hosts a mineralized zone
representing the upper portion of a Kuroko-type volcanogenic massive sulphide
(VMS) system composed of an exhalite horizon with related zinc-lead-silver
mineralization. This mineralization consisting of finely bedded sphalerite and
pyrite with minor galena and chalcopyrite occurs below the main exhalite (red
jasper/green to grey chert) horizon and is located within mudstones, mudstone
breccias and dacite breccias.
The BA claims are located 30 km east of Stewart in the Skeena mining
division approximately 3 kilometers south of a power line and paved Highway
E. Kruchkowski, P. Geo., a qualified person under National Instrument
