Rockhaven Resources, a Canada-based mineral exploration company, has planned to conduct a 2012 exploration program at its wholly-owned Klaza property, which is situated in the Dawson Range Gold Belt, Central Yukon Territory.
The company has mobilized crews to the property and has scheduled to commence the drill program in early June. As part of the phase I exploration for 2012, the company has engaged two drill rigs to carry out around 8,000 m of diamond drill program at Klaza property. Rockhaven has funded this drill program.
Four parallel structural zones, which host epithermal to mesothermal-type mineralized gold and silver, were discovered through trenching and drilling program performed during 2010 and 2011. Soil geochemical anomalies and magnetic lows exist on the prominent zones. Drilling or trenching program will examine numerous identical anomalies, existing at the 60-sq km property, during 2012.
Extension of the BRX and Klaza zone discoveries has been the target of the phase I campaign of 2012. The Klaza zone has been outlined by means of excavator trenching and drilling along strike for 1100 m and down dip to 250 m depth. Excavator trenching and diamond drilling have analyzed the BRX zone and have discovered mineralization over 2,000 m. These two zones stay exposed to depth and in every direction, along with some strongest trench and drill hole values at the zones’ open ends. The company has intersected considerable mineralization in 36 holes out of 40, which were drilled at the Klaza zone, and 10 holes out of 11 drilled at the BRX zone.
Rockhaven will carry out around 5,000 m of excavator trenching, parallel with the drill program, along strike of the prominent zones and will examine the property’s other target areas. Additionally, prospecting and soil geochemical surveys will be conducted in the property’s other regions to trace further targets for trenching and drilling.
