KING'S BAY APPROVED TO COMMENCE FIRST DRILL HOLES AT LYNX LAKE COPPER-COBALT PROPERTY IN LABRADOR
King's Bay Resources Corp. has received drilling approval and has initiated a drilling program at King's Bay's 100-per-cent-owned Lynx Lake copper-cobalt project in southeastern Labrador.
King's Bay has begun drill access preparation and expects to have a drilling crew mobilized immediately, following trail completion. The drill program will consist of a minimum of two diamond drill holes totalling 500 metres. The drill hole placement and orientation have been determined based upon the amalgamation of the previously flown VTEM (versatile time-domain electromagnetic) survey anomalies and the bedrock structure in the west pit. The previously announced VTEM results identified an anomaly that is anticipated to be ranging in depth from 50 metres to 300
metres and estimated to be approximately 400
metres in diameter.
Kevin Bottomley, president and chief executive officer of King's Bay, stated: "The upcoming drilling program on Lynx Lake copper-cobalt property in Labrador is the pinnacle of the hard work from our entire geological and technical teams. We are committed to advancing the Lynx Lake property in Labrador as well as our Trump Island property in Newfoundland."
Lynx Lake project
The Lynx Lake copper-cobalt property consists of 959 mineral claims encompassing a land area of approximately 240 square kilometres, located 100 kilometres southeast of Happy Valley Goose Bay, Newfoundland and Labrador. A VTEM survey was flown by Geotech Ltd. and identified an area in the west pit of high conductivity and low resistivity. The west pit has been historically sampled, yielding assays of up to 1.03 per cent copper, 0.56 per cent cobalt, 0.23 per cent vanadium, 0.10 per cent nickel and 5.0 grams per tonne silver. The Lynx Lake project has also returned historical grab samples assaying up to 1.39 per cent copper, 0.94 per cent cobalt, 0.21 per cent nickel and 6.5 grams per tonne silver. The project is located directly adjacent to a three-phase power line and the Trans-Labrador Highway.
