Cariboo Rose Resources (TSX-V: CRB) is pleased to announce that six additional holes (2,000 metres), in addition to the three currently being drilled (1,000 metres), have been added to the current drill program at the Woodjam gold-copper property. The Woodjam property is located in south-central British Columbia, five kilometres south of Imperial Metals Corp’s (TSX: III) Mount Polley mine property. The Woodjam property is a joint venture in which Cariboo Rose holds a 40% interest and Fjordland Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: FEX) holds a 60% interest.
Of the previously announced three holes, the first two holes have already been drilled in the newly discovered Southeast Zone located approximately three kilometres east of the Takom Zone (See News Release of July 19, 2007). The third hole of the previously announced program is now underway north of the Megabuck zone. All three of the initial holes were designed to look for new zones of mineralization based on induced polarization response as opposed to extending the limits of currently known mineralization.
The Woodjam property has had approximately 16,000 metres of drilling since 2001, most of which has been in the Megabuck zone. Exploration has demonstrated that the property is prospective for bulk-tonnage gold-copper deposits similar to other porphyry deposits in B.C.’s Quesnel Terrane. Drilling in 2004 included a hole that intersected 378 metres grading 0.81 g/t gold and 0.12% copper and another that intersected 397 metres grading 0.82 g/t gold and 0.12% copper. Drilling in 2006 included a hole with 94 metres grading 0.95 g/t gold and 0.19% copper and another hole with 92 metres grading 1.0 g/t gold and 0.22% copper.
