North Bay Resources has announced the completion of a geochemical survey at the Bouleau Creek gold property, Southeast British Columbia in Canada.
The property is situated 26 km towards the western part of Vernon in British Columbia and has 2,510 A. It is contiguous to the Brett gold project, encountering 39.12 g/t gold in 11,970 t through the former underground work and surface drill program.
Mineralized gold and silver over 1,000 x 600 m area are found in the property’s south zone, which is under Bouleau Creek. The previous recorded assay results in Assessment Report 21877 have found up to 286 g/t silver and 34 g/t gold. The north zone over the property has the Siwash prospect that is expanding over a mineralized region of silver and gold, measuring 3,000 x 750 m. The northern zone’s previous assay results in Assessment Report 20226 have encountered up to 16.6 g/t silver and 5.55 g/t gold.
The company acquired further claims, which includes 612 A that encloses the Gold Star showing immediately towards the Brett Gold property’s western part, and towards 500 m of the Brett Gold deposit. The new claims are considered to be a portion of the project and are called as Brett West or the Western zone. Currently, Running Fox Resources owns and operates Brett Gold.
Billiken Gold of Enderby conducted a detailed pilot geochemical campaign at the Bouleau Creek property for the company, by means of heavy metal concentrates (HMC) method. It started this campaign on October 10, 2011, and completed on November 30, 2011. The company has sent the samples to ALS Chemex in Vancouver for testing, and is expecting the assay results at the earliest.
