Management of Cariboo Rose Resources would like to announce the plans for the summer season. It will be an active season with exploration on three properties in British Columbia and one in the Yukon.
The Canadian Creek copper-gold-molybdenum property in the Yukon, located approximately 300 km northwest of Whitehorse and 160 km south of Dawson City, will have seven to nine holes drilled in promising targets. A budget of $400,000 has been approved and a contract with a diamond drill contractor signed. Drilling is expected to begin in early July. North American Vanadium Inc. (NAVI, CDNQ) will fund the work under an option that gives them the right to earn a 60% interest in the property. This property, which has the potential to host a porphyry style or an intrusion related deposit, is located to the immediate west of the Casino deposit. Previous drill highlights include 150 metres grading 0.49 g/t gold and 26 metres grading 1.04 g/t gold.
The Woodjam gold-copper property is located in south-central British Columbia 70 kilometres east of Williams Lake and five kilometres from the Mount Polley claim group. Woodjam, is a joint venture between Cariboo Rose and Fjordland Exploration (FEX, TSX-V), where Cariboo Rose holds a 40% interest in the property and Fjordland holds a 60% interest. Previous drilling in Woodjam has included 361 metres grading 0.84 g/t gold and 0.12% copper and 358 meters grading 0.82 g/t gold and 0.12% copper. An induced polarization study is currently ongoing, preliminary results are encouraging and drilling is planned to follow up the geophysical program.
The Carruthers Pass copper-zinc-silver property is located in northern British Columbia, approximately 70 kilometres south of the Kemess gold-copper mine and 200 kilometres north of Smithers. It is under option to Hawthorne Gold Corp. (HGC, TSX-V), who may earn a 60% interest in the property. Hawthorne completed a surface mapping and prospecting program in 2006 at a cost of $130,000 with a follow up program planned for 2007.
The Cowtrail gold-copper property is located five kilometres southeast of the existing Mt. Polley claim group, operated by Imperial Metals Corporation. The property covers an airborne magnetic feature that extends to the northwest from a weakly mineralized alkalic intrusive discovered by drilling completed by Eastfield Resources and Imperial Metals Corporation in 1998. It is under option to Dajin Resources Corp. (DJI, TSX-V), who may earn a 65% interest in the property. In 2006, $91,000 was spent by Dajin Resources Corp. to establish grids and complete 20 line kilometres of magnetometer and induced polarization surveys. This work has resulted in the identification of a number of promising targets that will be evaluated in 2007.
