Cariboo Rose Resources Announces Ground Added to Woodjam Project, BC
Vancouver, BC, Jun 7, 2011 - Cariboo Rose Resources Ltd. (TSX-V:
) and Fjordland Exploration Inc. (TSX-V:
), 40%-60% partners in the Woodjam Joint Venture (“WJV”), and Gold Fields Limited’s (NYSE:
) exploration company, Gold Fields Horsefly Exploration Corporation (“Gold Fields”), have signed an option agreement with private vendors for the 625-hectare Magalloy-Magex Property. Magalloy-Magex is located in the Woodjam North Property, currently being explored by Gold Fields under an option agreement with the WJV. The Woodjam North Property is located 45 km east of Williams Lake, in south-central British Columbia. The option agreement was completed to cover prospective ground along an interpreted SW-NE trend of mineralization, which includes the Megabuck and Takom zones on the Woodjam North Property, where significant “porphyry-style” copper and gold mineralization has been identified by drilling.
For the option to acquire a 100% interest in the Magalloy 1-14 and Magex 1-12 mineral claims, Gold Fields, on behalf of the WJV, will make cash payments to the vendors totaling $300,000 over a four-year term and will reserve a 1.5% net smelter royalty for the vendors that may be purchased outright for a cash payment of $1.5 million. The cash payments required to be made shall be attributed to Gold Fields’ earn-in expenditures relating to the Woodjam North option agreement with the WJV.
The Magalloy-Magex Property is located 3.5 km to the south-southwest of the Megabuck Zone and 1.0 km to the west of the Takom Zone on the Woodjam North Property. The Magalloy-Magex option is underlain by extensive glacial drift; however, a few exposures of intrusive rocks and Nicola Group volcanic rocks have been mapped. Previous soil, silt and lake geochemical surveys indicate copper and molybdenum anomalies on the Property. Also, a reconnaissance induced polarization (IP) survey, completed in 2008 by the WJV, has outlined a potential 1.2-km southwesterly extension to the large IP chargeability anomaly covering the Takom Zone. The nearest drill hole on the Takom Zone (W07-75), located approximately 350 m east of the Magalloy-Magex Property boundary, returned a 12.3m interval grading 0.13% copper and 0.037g/t gold.
The WJV and Gold Fields plan to explore the Magalloy-Magex option during 2011, as part of their aggressive multi-million dollar exploration programs on the Woodjam North and Woodjam South projects.
