Gold Reach to Commence Geophysical Surveying at Ootsa Property in British Columbia

Gold Reach Resources Ltd. (Gold Reach and/or the Company) is pleased to announce that geophysical surveying will commence shortly on the Company’s 100% owned Ootsa Property located adjacent to the producing Huckleberry Mine south of Smithers, British Columbia.

An 8 man geophysical crew is being mobilized to the site and geophysical surveying will commence shortly. SJ Geophysics from Delta, British Columbia, is the geophysical contractor and will utilize their “Volterra Geoimaging System” a new 3D Induced Polarization (IP) survey system that utilizes a flexible number of single channel and/or 4-channel, 24-bit, full waveform digital acquisition units to obtain good depth penetration and also maintain good near-surface resolution. The survey will be conducted on 3 pre-cut grids with 300 metre line spacing with 100 to 150 metre cross lines for receiver dipoles, and will cover an area roughly 17.8 square kilometres (60 line kilometres). A map showing the location of the 3 grids is available here

The surveying is anticipated to take approximately 3 weeks to complete.

Dr. Shane Ebert, president of Gold Reach, commented: "Induced polarization geophysical surveying has been very effective at identifying zones of porphyry Cu style mineralization on the Ootsa property and is a key tool for exploring the property which contains large areas covered by thin glacial deposits. The new Volterra system surveys 5 lines at a time in a unique configuration that offers the company a cost effective way of obtaining both good near surface resolution and good depth penetration. The planned surveying will be used to refine existing geophysical targets and explore for new targets within a 4 kilometre radius of the Ox and Seel deposits. Geophysical anomalies will be prioritized and drill tested later this year”.

The company has completed 85 holes at Ox this year, with 42 holes still in the lab with assays pending. Additional drill results are expected shortly. The company is also conducting an ongoing surface exploration program focused on mapping, prospecting, and rock, soil, and stream silt sampling within the large 47,559 hectare Ootsa property.
