MANITOBA – Vancouvers HALO RESOURCES, which prides itself in thinking outside the rocks, has cut a 25-m-thick zone of massive sulphides at its Bob Lake property near Sherridon. Core was assayed at 1.26% Cu and 1.47% Zn over 4.0 m within the zone, which averaged 0.76% Cu and 0.49% Zn.
A zinc-rich zone was found below the area historically drilled, and the deposit remains open at depth. The new zone was drilled on strike for 325.0 m southeast of the known mineralized zones. Drilling in the 1940s at Bob Lake did not extend beyond a vertical depth of 180 m. Drill hole DH-06 has intersected a massive sulphide zone grading 0.03% Cu and 1.95% Zn over 2.5 m at a depth of 260 m. The new zinc-rich zone represents an exciting new target and the potential to expand the resource, says Halo.
Sulphides in the region are noteworthy for their gold enrichment. Two drill holes returned 21.54 g/t Au and 19.55 g/t Au, each over 0.5 m.
Halo is working on a 30,000-m drill program at Bob Lake. More information about Halo and its exploration projects is available at www.HaloRes.com.
