Colorado Initiates Drilling at KSP in B.C.’s Golden Triangle
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 16, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Colorado Resources Ltd. (“Colorado” or the “Company”) (TSX-V:CXO) is pleased to announce initiation of diamond drilling at its 100% owned KSP property located in British Columbia’s prolific Golden Triangle region. As previously announced on June 6, 2018, diamond drilling on the 308 sq. km KSP Property will follow-up on multiple previously identified targets. The initial priorities of a planned 4,500 m program include:
- Big Rock Deformation Zone. Colorado’s 2016 drill program produced Drill Hole INDDH16-29, which returned a 5 m interval grading 11.5 g/t Au (assays capped at 31 g/t Au). Our 2018 program will systematically expand upon this intercept in search of high-grade gold mineralization along strike and down dip.
- Inel Zinc Zone. Colorado’s 2017 exploration drilling tested a significant surface anomaly in this area. Drill Hole INDDH17-075 discovered a 10 m interval grading 21.38% Zn with 0.96 g/t Au associated with volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) mineralization which will now be traced along strike.
- The A-J Zone. Chip sampling previously reported by Colorado Resources produced 31g/t Au over 2 m, and grab samples assaying up to 95.1 g/t Au. A-J represents a gold-rich skarn hosted in pillowed andesite with intercalated marble. Historical geophysical surveys define a north-south linear magnetic low and IP chargeability high associated with the mineralization.
Additional results for Colorado’s 2016 and 2017 exploration and drilling programs can be found at www.coloradoresources.com.
Colorado President and CEO, Robert Shaw, states “CXO’s technical team has worked hard in the field over the past 2 weeks, in preparation for our KSP drill program. Early retreat of the snowpack at KSP has permitted the rapid construction of our drill pads, and will help ensure the safe, rapid and successful undertaking of our systematic exploration drilling at KSP.
