Richfield provides update on summer exploration workadmin
Peter Bernier, President and CEO of Richfield Ventures Corp. provide an update on recent work on the Quesnel Trough Project and Morris Mine property, both located in British Columbia, Canada.
Quesnel Trough Project
Richfield’s Quesnel Trough Project consists of a large land package of over 200,000 acres located east of the city of Quesnel. During the summer, Richfield’s geological team has been analyzing and reviewing data from recent drilling, soil geochemistry and airborne geophysical surveys in order to delineate additional drill targets. The team is also analyzing data recently released as part of the Geoscience BC Quest project, which includes airborne electromagnetic and gravity survey results which cover the full area of the Quesnel Trough Project.
Within the Quesnel Trough Project, Mouse Mountain remains Richfield’s priority target. The project is centrally located within Canada’s largest and most productive copper-gold porphyry belt. Several industry professionals have visited the Mouse Mountain site during the summer to examine drill core and outcrops and have shared thoughts about the project. Richfield is now focusing on the High-grade Zone to the south in an effort to identify the core of the mineralized system and outline additional drill targets.
The G-South prospect is located 30 km north of Mouse Mountain and differsin that it is a pure gold target within the Quesnel Trough Project. Currently the Company is awaiting precious metals assays from four drill holes totaling approximately 2000 meters drilled in early summer.
The Moustique target is also located within the Quesnel trough Project. It is a large molybdenum soil anomaly which was percussion drilled over the summer. Four holes totaling approximately 400 feet were drilled through the overburden to reach bedrock. Only one of the hole was successful in reaching bedrock but the source for the in soil anomaly was not identified.
Morris Mine Property
Richfield completed initial exploration of the Morris Mine property to delineate targets. A soil geochemical grid was completed. Soil samples were analyzed by portable XRF and samples with high arsenic and or antimony have been sent to the laboratory for gold fire assay.
Additional Property Evaluations
Richfield’s management and geological team continue to evaluate properties to add to their mineral tenure portfolio.
Richfield Ventures Corp. is a public mineral exploration company trading on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol RVC. Richfield has been actively acquiring and exploring mineral tenures in the Quesnel Trough region of British Columbia over the last three years and holds a 100% interest in mineral tenures in the Quesnel Trough covering approximately 200,000 acres. Richfield has recently added 2 additional properties outside of their Quesnel Trough project, the Morris Mine property located in West Central BC near the Tatlayoko Lake area and the Echo Property known as “Trapper Lake” located 43 km North West of the Golden Bear Gold Mine.
