Thumbs up on CNG's Bullard Pass Gold Project

    VANCOUVER, Sept. 10 /CNW/ - Mr. Ray Paquette CEO of Canadian Mining
reports that due to the successful Bullard Pass Orientation Survey results the
Company is now ready to move forward with a fall exploration program to define
drill targets.
    During the spring and early summer of 2007, Dr. Pat O'Hara conducted an
orientation survey of geochemical and geophysical techniques on the Bullard
Pass property in Arizona for Canadian Mining (AZ), Inc. The purpose of the
orientation survey was to determine if precious metals mineralization exists
on the property, to determine if anomalous elemental concentrations in rocks
and soils are associated with mineralization, and to determine if potential
conductors associated with the mineralization can be detected using a
hand-held VLF-EM unit. Based on the data compilation study and preliminary
review of the geology and results of the orientation study, mineral rights in
the form of unpatented mining claims on U. S. Bureau of Land Management land
and an Arizona State Prospecting permit were acquired.
    The exploration model based on the detachment fault mineralization model
indicates that there is potential for large tonnage disseminated
mineralization associated with upper plate pre-mineralization faults. If large
tonnage deposits exist on the property they are hidden under Quaternary
gravels with variable thickness. Therefore exploration techniques need to
project favorable targets under gravel-covered areas or to "see" through
gravels to target mineralization.
    Based on data and report compilation (O'Hara, 2007) and review of a
report with associated geologic map by Berridge and Smith (2000) on the
property, the North Hill area of the property seemed ideal to test the
proposed geochemical and geophysical techniques. This area has exposed
mineralization in a number of small shear zones in Tertiary andesite which
were confirmed to be mineralized (O'Hara, 2007), contains a mapped geochemical
anomaly, contains a number of CS-AMT geophysical anomalies, and a large area
of Quaternary gravels under which mineralization trends and through which a
number of holes were drilled by Cominco.
    In conclusion, the orientation survey at the Bullard Pass property has
successfully demonstrated that gold, copper and pathfinder elements using the
Enzyme Leach protocol generate geochemical anomalies associated with known
mineralized shear zones in outcrop and in projected mineralized shear zones
under gravels. These anomalies correlate reasonably well with previously
drilled gold intercepts, and geophysical EM anomalies using VLF-EM and CS-AMT
techniques. It is now reasonable to scale up the Enzyme leach geochemical
technique and VLF-EM technique to acquire data on the entire property to
determine if large anomalies are present. Any potential large-sized anomalies
found under the gravels, would suggest that large mineralized shear zones
hosting gold mineralization may be present. More detailed surveys of these
anomalies would be required to generate drill targets.
    The full Orientation Survey Results - Bullard Pass Property will be
available on the Company's web site
