Bard Ventures has started the drilling program at its Lone Pine Property. The location of this property is located in the Omineca Mining Division and is 15 km north-northwest of Houston in BC.
The objective of the drill program is to evaluate the drill hole results obtained from all three Zones of the project. The 61 Zone, the Alaskite Zone and the Quartz Breccia Zone are the three zones of the property. The analysis of the Quartz Breccia Zone has been completed and two areas have been found where drill hole intercepts returned 0.052% molybdenum over 142.0 m , 25.47 g/t silver over 154.0 m, 0.09% copper over 147.0 m at the near surface silver and copper mineralization in hole BDQ-08-03. Moreover, it has intersected copper-molybdenum mineralization at the Quartz Breccia Zone and received 0.05% copper over 236.0 m in BDQ-08-010 and 044% molybdenum over 442.6 m in BD-07-02.
Acme Analytical Laboratories, Vancouver has re-analyzed the over limit pulp sample. It uses the Group G6 methodology to test silver, which has a lead collection fire assay fusion and a gravimetric finish and Group 7TD technique to examine copper using a 4-acid Digestion ICP-ES Finish.
Bard has finished a NI 43-101 Preliminary Economic Assessment for the Alaskite Zone. The Property is the perfect place for its drilling operations and has an infrastructure that includes a natural gas pipeline, transformer substation and major hydro power transmission line, Highway 16.
