Darnley Bay Resources Limited (TSX VENTURE:DBL) has posted an update regarding its base metals drill program on its website. Ground geophysical surveys (gravity, electromagnetic and magnetic) have been completed on twenty targets, and are underway on five remaining targets.
Drilling of two holes near the northeast edge of the Darnley Bay Gravity Anomaly has been completed.
Neither drillhole reached sufficient depth to explain the target anomalies. Nevertheless, valuable geological information was gained and portions of the drillcore from M-07-01 will undergo geochemical analysis. Initial drill production was hampered by the overburden and by a run of bad weather.
With the ground geophysical information in hand, Darnley Bay is commencing to drill its primary gravity targets. Drill set-up on target G-09-01 is nearly complete. It is focused on a gravity response defined by the recent ground surveys within the southeast lobe of the Darnley Bay Gravity Anomaly. The remaining drill targets for the current season are located near the drill camp and accessible by snow machine, which will enable continued access regardless of the weather.
Darnley Bay remains committed to a logical progression of ground geophysics and drilling, to determine the source of the Darnley Bay Gravity Anomaly and related mineralization.
