Northern Abitibi Mining to Begin Exploration Program at Ches Property

Northern Abitibi Mining Corp. is pleased to announce that exploration will commence shortly at the Ches property in Central British Columbia. An evacuation order for the area was issued in July due to a large uncontrolled wildfire over the Ches project area. This order has recently been lifted and Northern Abitibi exploration personnel can now access the area.

The Company will immediately start a field program consisting of mapping, soil and rock channel sampling, and excavator trenching to evaluate and expand known zones of mineralization previously exposed in logging road cuts on the property.

The Ches Property

The road accessible Ches Property is located 80 kilometres south of Burns Lake on the south side of Ootsa Lake. Mineralization consists of pyrrhotite-chalcopyrite-scheelite replacement (skarn) style mineralization in calcareous sedimentary rocks and quartz chalcopyrite-molybdenite-scheelite stockwork veining in fine grained siltstones. Historic Assessment Reports state average grades from surface sampling of 0.52% copper and 4.7 g/t silver over a zone 350 metres wide, and copper in soil geochemical anomalies up to 350 metres wide and 800 to 1500 metres long, and open along strike. Subsequent surface grab sampling reported in a 2009 Technical Report by Scarlet Resources Ltd. returned values up to 1% copper, 16 g/t silver, and 0.3% tungsten from the replacement-skarn style mineralization, and values up to 0.45% copper, 0.02% molybdenum, 7 g/t silver, and 0.1% tungsten from the stockwork zone. These mineralized zones have never been trenched or drill tested. The sampling results above are considered historic in nature, they have not been confirmed by Northern Abitibi, and should not be relied upon.
