Cadillac Ventures has commenced its exploratory drilling program at the Burnt Hill project near Fredericton in New Brunswick. The Canadian project is a tin, tungsten and molybdenum project for which phase one of the three planned phases of exploration has begun.
As part of phase one the company will use a diamond drill to make 7 holes in the Burnt Hill project of which it owns 51%. The holes will evaluate 1,200 meters to test the down dip extensions of the known mineralized vein systems in and around the Burnt Hill mine site.
The Burnt Hill Project is one claim block covering more than 10,000 hectares. Cadillac Ventures owns it in a joint venture with Noront Resources. If the holes being dug on the property intersect the multiple parallel vein system there will be more data available for a resource update.
The first phase is due to be completed within the next four to six weeks as per company statements. The second phase of the exploration program will begin in fall. It will follow up the prospecting program from last year that had discovered mineralization in several different zones.
Cadillac Ventures added that stripping was planned to expose previously un-sampled areas. This would provide new samples that could be followed with drilling. The third phase of the drilling at Burnt Hill mine site area will be planned to test the eastern and western extensions to the mineralization beyond the current model.
