Gold Reach Resources to Commence 20,000 m of Drilling at Ootsa Property

Gold Reach Resources has reported that the company will start a diamond drill program for a minimum of 20,000 m at the Ootsa property in BC, during May.

The company has inked a drilling agreement with Full Force Diamond Drilling and will mobilize two drill rigs at the property. Primarily, the focus of the drill program will be on outlining the West Seel deposit, which was identified during the end of the the 2011 program. The company intersected 0.54% Cu Eq over 566.7 m from the final hole that was drilled in the 2011 program at the West Seel deposit. Mineralization was found at the end of the hole. The new discovery stays exposed towards the south, north, west, and at depth. The holes S11-98 and S11-100 at the deposit cut the huge mineralized zone, which stays exposed towards southwest, up dip, and at depth. A sequence of planned holes, which are spaced approximately 100 m apart, are specifically designed to define the mineralized zone towards the surface, find out the mineralization’s southwest level and expand the mineralized zone towards depth.

The focus of the 2012 exploration drilling program will be on the West Seel deposit. The company will drill up to two deep holes at the zone and has planned for some drilling at the adjacent Ox porphyry in order to see, whether the expansion of the Ox resource can be done towards depth and towards the northwest. Some drilling is allotted for examining fresh targets located at the Ootsa claim block. The exploration program at Ootsa in 2012 will include a large surface exploration program, surface sampling, trenching, property scale mapping, induced polarization geophysics and soil sampling. Gold Reach has permitted for the 2012 exploration program.
