Blue Note Mining Mobilizes Drill Rig on Williams Brook Gold Propertyadmin
Monday, August 31st 2009
Blue Note Mining Inc., a Canadian mineral exploration and mining company headquartered in Montreal with operations in Bathurst, New Brunswick reports that it has engaged Logan Drilling of Stewiacke, Nova Scotia, to begin a 10-hole drilling program on Blue Note’s Williams Brook Gold property located near Bathurst, New Brunswick.
The aim of this drill campaign is to further define the grade, frequency and geometry of gold-bearing quartz veins at the Williams Brook Gold property. Blue Note believes the best opportunity to add to shareholder value is to focus its fall exploration program on its 100-percent owned Williams Brook gold property in Bathurst, New Brunswick, Canada.
As news released on December 10, 2008, Blue Note made a significant gold discovery on its Williams Brook property in late 2008. Drill hole WB-08-11 returned 2.8 meters assaying 11.2 grams of gold per tonne including a half meter section assaying 24.1 grams of gold per tonne. The gold mineralization was intersected just 15 meters vertical from surface.
“Previous diamond drilling at the site was largely guided by geophysical trends. Recent stripping of overburden in the vicinity of known high grade gold occurrences has identified mineralized veins trending oblique to the typical geophysical patterns, so the earlier drilling hit some veins but missed others that occur nearby.” stated Arthur Hamilton, P.Geo., Regional Exploration Manager.
Blue Note also holds a 100% interest in over 400 square kilometers of mineral claim properties in the region surrounding the Williams Brook property that is considered prospective for new gold discoveries. These claims will be the focus of exploration over the next 12 months as Blue Note learns more about the Williams Brook area. Blue Note also holds a number of base metal exploration claims in the world renowned Bathurst mining camp.
