Now, the one to watch this year:
Colorado Resources Announces 402m of 0.28 % Cu and 0.27 g/t Au in Step-Out Hole 400m Southeast of North ROK Discovery Hole 1
WEST KELOWNA, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Aug. 28, 2013) - COLORADO RESOURCES LTD. (TSX VENTURE:CXO) ("Colorado" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the results of nine additional drill holes (3,148 metres) from the ongoing drill program at its 100% owned North ROK property (the "Property"), located 15 kms northwest of Imperial Metals' Red Chris mine in NW British Columbia. In addition, the Company announces that it has received approval from the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Natural Gas ("MEMNG") to drill an additional 40 holes on the Property.
Drill holes NR13-005 through NR13-009, NR13-012 and NR13-013 were drilled on 100-200 metre step-outs along strike to the southeast of discovery hole NR13-001, while drill hole NR 13-011 was drilled 100m to the northwest of the discovery hole. Drill holes NR13-006, NR13-007 and NR13-013, which stepped back to the southwest, have also returned mineralization 150m off the main trend and may indicate the presence of a second, parallel zone developing in this area.
The Company is very pleased with the progress it has made in defining the size of the North ROK porphyry body, and demonstrating the continuity of mineralization on multiple sections over a 500m strike length. NR13-013 in particular, drilled over 400 metres along strike SE from the initial discovery drill hole, has returned an impressive 402.2 metre interval grading 0.28% copper and 0.27 g/t gold (0.45% Cu Eq*), including 160.9m of 0.41% copper and 0.28 g/t gold (0.58% Cu Eq*). With NR13-009 failing to achieve planned depth, the mineralized zone remains open to the southeast of this important intersection. The Company has now completed first-pass drilling on 500 metres of the 1,200 metre long magnetic high trend, giving the technical team a good understanding of this significant mineralized system, which continues to remain open along strike in both directions, and at depth.
