SB: TSX Venture Exchange
CALGARY, Sept. 24, 2014 /CNW/ - Stratabound Minerals Corp. (TSX.V: SB) announces that a drilling program is underway on its properties in the Bathurst Mining Camp of northern New Brunswick, beginning with Taylor Brook. The drill will move on to the company's 100%-owned Captain claims within two weeks, following a pause for the moose hunting season, and then to the 65%-optioned Commander property.
One hole has been completed on the 100%-owned Taylor Brook property. The hole was drilled to probe for mineralization beneath a shallow hole drilled by a previous owner in 1977, which intersected a 3.1 metre thick sulphide zone containing 1.6% zinc, 0.4% lead, and 0.5 oz/ton silver, including 0.7 metre that graded 4.0% zinc, 1.1% lead and 1.0 oz/ton silver.
The new hole has intersected two sulphide zones beneath a narrow magnetite iron formation. A 2.7 metre thick upper zone contains 10% to 25% sulphides with thin (5 to 10 centimetre) semi-massive sulphide sections and modest amounts of zinc and lead. A lower 7.9 metre thick mineralized zone contains 10% to 60%, locally semi-massive sulphides with visible zinc and lead bands and stringers, in apparently higher concentration than the upper zone. Mineralized drill core is being split and will be submitted for assay. Additional details will be provided when assays have been completed and received.
