2008 Surface Work Indicates 4 Kilometers of Strike Length for the BA Mineralizationadmin
Mountain Boy Minerals Ltd announces that assays for the surface work from the 2008 exploration program on the 100 % owned BA claims have been received. Assays indicate that at least 4 kilometers of mineralized horizon have been outlined on the BA property. The BA claims are located 30 km east of Stewart in the Skeena mining division approximately 3 kilometers south of paved Highway 37A.
Highlights of sampling include 56.5 g/t silver, 0.71% lead and 5.31% zinc and 81.4 g/t silver, 0.86% lead and 6.23% zinc in a mineralized horizon 500 meters north of the area drilled in the 2006-2008 exploration.
The company believes that the mineralized zone represents the upper portion of a Kuroko-type Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide (VMS) system composed of an exhalite horizon with related zinc-lead-silver mineralization. This mineralization consisting of finely bedded sphalerite and pyrite with minor galena and chalcopyrite occurs below the main exhalite (red jasper/green to grey chert) horizon and is located within mudstones, mudstone breccias and dacite breccias. It appears that at least 12 kilometers of favorable horizon is located on the property.
Samples BA 08-1 to 2 are from a partly exposed mudstone horizon zone in excess of 10 meters exposed in the bank of a gulley. BA-08-03 is from a float sample of dacite in the area of Samples BA-08-1 and 2. Samples BA-5 and 6 are from dacite located 150 meters northwest of BA-08-1 and 2. Sample BA-08-11 is from float rock located 3 kilometers south of the BA drilling. BA-08-12 and 13 are from a lower horizon relative to BA-08-1 and 2 with BA-08-12 from a 30 meter thick horizon.
The Company has 36 drill holes that will be logged and sampled in the near future.
E. Kruchkowski, P. Geo., a qualified person under National Instrument 43-101, is in charge of the exploration program on behalf of the Company. Drill core and surface samples are assayed by Assayers Canada of Vancouver, BC.
