VANCOUVER, Aug. 1 /CNW/ - Starfire Minerals Inc. is pleased to announce
that field work has resumed on the Company's 100% owned Langmuir South Nickel
Project near Timmins, Ontario. A line cutting crew mobilized to the property
on July 30th and completion of the grid is expected by August 6th. Magnetic
and electromagnetic surveys are to follow immediately after completion of the
grid, and following interpretation of the geophysics, drilling is now forecast
to resume in the second half of August.
Following an on-site technical review in late June, management revised
the planned program to ensure that exploration of the entire property is
optimized. To that end, it was decided to complete geophysical coverage of the
entire property prior to the resumption of diamond drilling. This will ensure
that the focus of the program is directed to the best targets first. The
previously-reported intersections warrant step-out drilling and this will be
completed as part of a larger program.
The previously-reported intersections consist of:
- 4.48% nickel over a core length of 5.55 meters from a depth of
424.35 meters at the base of a komatiite flow in Hole EL-06-03; and
- 3.51% nickel over a core length of 1.5 meters from a depth of
202.0 meters at the base of a komatiite flow in Hole EL-07-06.
The Company is fortunate in that it has access to a dedicated diamond
drill and crew at its exclusive disposal.
