Cariboo Rose Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: CRB) (“Cariboo Rose”) and Fjordland Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: FEX) (“Fjordland”) are pleased to report the final results for the 2007 drill program completed at the Woodjam Project, located in the Cariboo region of south-central British Columbia.
Results from the Southeast Zone:
Hole 07-79, the most northerly of three widely-spaced vertical holes in the newly discovered Southeast Zone on the Woodjam property, intersected 203.55 metres of copper-molybdenum mineralization averaging 0.34% copper and 0.014% molybdenum from bedrock surface at 145.2 metres to 348.75 metres, near the limit of the drill rig. The final 3.9 metres of the hole encountered a cross-cutting, post-mineral basaltic dyke and the mineralization in this hole is thought to be open ended. A higher-grade portion of this hole beginning at the bedrock surface graded 0.40% copper and 0.014% molybdenum over 113.8 metres.
Hole 07-79 was drilled three metres east of hole 07-78 which was lost at bedrock where 1.2 metres of mineralization graded 0.38% copper and 0.012% molybdenum. Hole 07-79 is a 310-metre northern step out from hole 07-73, which in turn was a 500-metre northern step out from hole 07-72 (both drilled earlier in the 2007 program). All three holes (07-79, 07-73, and 07-72) bottomed in copper-molybdenum mineralization (excepting the dyke noted above in 07-79) over an open-ended distance of 810 metres. The IP chargeability anomaly that formed the initial drill target measures 1,500 metres by 1,000 metres and remains largely untested.
Tom Schroeter, President of Fjordland Exploration comments, “This drill intersection in hole 07-79 compares very favourably with the grades in the current reserves (383.6 million tonnes grading 0.31% copper and 0.009% molybdenum) and resources (530 million tonnes grading 0.309% copper and 0.007% molybdenum) at the nearby Gibraltar open-pit mine. With 3 holes bottomed in mineralization, we are looking at the potential for a similar large-tonnage body.”
Results from the Takom Zone:
Hole 07-77 intersected 53.3 metres of 0.27% copper and 0.29 g/t gold (206.7 metres to 260.0 metres). The highest individual 3-metre samples graded up to 0.93 g/t gold and 0.37% copper and 0.50 g/t gold and 0.51% copper. This hole is approximately 200 metres northeast from hole 74-03 which returned 10.7 metres grading 1.3 g/t gold and 0.13% copper. These results are viewed as indicating a large target area of mineralization which displays a high gold to copper ratio and opens up new vectors for further exploration of this relatively untested area. Hole 07-76 was drilled in the Takom Zone approximately 500 metres to the northeast of hole 07-77 and encountered alteration and anomalous copper.
2008 Exploration Plans:
The 2008 program at Woodjam is scheduled to begin in February 2008 with a deep penetrating geophysical survey, capable of investigating depths of up to 500 metres, followed with drilling beginning the end of March deploying two rigs.
For Further Information:
Core from the recent Southeast Zone discovery will be displayed at company displays at the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference to be held in Vancouver on January 20 and 21, 2008. A presentation is to be given on Monday, January 21, 2008 at this conference to profile the recent successes at the Woodjam project. A
copy of the presentation will be available on the companies’ websites. The companies will also be displaying at a “core shack” display on Tuesday, January 29, 2008 at the Cordilleran Roundup to be held at the Bayshore Resort and Marina. Select photographs of mineralized core and maps have been posted by both companies on their respective web sites.
About The Woodjam Joint Venture:
The Woodjam Joint Venture consists of 60% Fjordland and 40% Cariboo Rose and is situated in the Cariboo Region of south-central British Columbia, approximately 55 kilometres east of the city of Williams Lake. The project is located at low elevation, in a relatively flat and dry timbered landscape, and is close to hydroelectric power and a natural gas pipeline.
The Woodjam Joint Venture has now identified three open ended zones of porphyry mineralization on the Woodjam property. These are the copper-gold Megabuck Zone, the copper-gold Takom Zone located 2.5 km to the south of the Megabuck Zone and the newly discovered copper-molybdenum Southeast Zone, 2.5 km east of the Takom Zone.
Analysis was performed by Acme Analytical Laboratories, a certified facility located in Vancouver, BC, using multi-element (ICP-ES) procedures, with gold and silver determined using fire assay procedures. External standards were inserted into the sample sequence on a ratio of approximately one standard per twenty-five samples. The 2007 drilling program and sampling protocol were supervised by Bruce Laird, P.Geo. of Mincord Exploration Consultants Ltd. G.L. Garratt, P.Geo., and T. G. Schroeter, P.Eng./Geo. who are qualified persons within the context of National Instrument 43-101, has read and takes responsibility for this news release.
