Located in south-central British Columbia, 45 km east of Williams Lake, the 13,827-hectare Woodjam South Property contains the Southeast Zone copper-gold-molybdenum mineralization discovered by the WJV in 2007. To date the WJV has completed 18 diamond drill holes totaling 7,700 m in the Southeast Zone, all of which are mineralized from the overburden/bedrock interface to the bottom of the holes. One of these holes (WJ08-84) averaged 0.69% Cu, 0.27g/t Au and 0.006% Mo over 359.1 metres (m), including 1.01% Cu and 0.44g/t Au over 200.8 m. Less than one-quarter of the 2.0 km by 1.0 km wide induced polarization anomaly has been tested. In addition, an airborne magnetometer survey completed in 2009 identified several additional targets on the Woodjam South Property; these will be followed-up.
The planned drilling is in the immediate area of the previous drilling and will test for lateral and depth extensions of the copper-gold-molybdenum mineralization of the Southeast Zone. Elsewhere on the Woodjam South Property, a program of induced polarization and ground magnetic surveying will be completed over prospective target areas that were identified from the 2009 airborne magnetometer survey.
Fjordland President Tom Schroeter said, “After a year hiatus from drilling on the significant Southeast Zone discovery, due to depressed economic and market conditions during 2008-2009, we are very pleased to have a company with Gold Fields’ credentials mount the beginning of a major exploration drilling program to define a resource for the zone, as well as testing the rest of the Property which hosts several airborne magnetic anomalies. We believe that the size of the mineralized body will increase significantly as a result of this year’s drilling.”
