White Knight Resources Ltd.: Drilling in Progress at Squaw Creek & New Pass Projects, Nevadaadmin
White Knight Resources Ltd. reports a drilling progress update by its joint venture partner, Bonaventure Enterprises Inc. (“Bonaventure”) (TSX VENTURE: BVT) on the following properties:
Squaw Creek Property, North Carlin Trend – The first of three 1,500 feet (457 metres) deep angle holes is approaching target depth. The holes are pre-collared using a reverse circulation (“RC”) rig to penetrate post-mineral rocks and completed using a core rig. Holes SC-0601 and 0602 are a fence of holes designed to drill across a large interpreted fault zone indicated in a CSMT geophysical survey completed in 2005. The primary target at Squaw Creek is a high grade vein deposit like Ken Snyder to the northwest or the deeper part of Hollister, located to the southeast. The program is expected to last approximately one month.
New Pass Property – Phase 2 angle drilling has begun in the northern portion of the project drill grid using a RC rig. The program includes 9,000-10,000 feet (2,700-3,050m) of new drilling in 20-25 holes to expand the current resource. Hole depths will be 250 feet (75m) to 650 feet (200m) deep. Drilling of the untested portion of the current drill grid as well as up-dip and down-dip offsets from previous drilling will be completed. The Phase 2 drilling program will occur over a strike length of approximately 3,200 feet (975 m). The angle hole program will also test volcanic rocks above previous drilling that have not been assayed and explore possible high grade feeder faults below the deposit. The drilling program is expected to last until the end of the year.
