NEW BRUNSWICK – Wolfden Resources Corp. of Thunder Bay, ON, is planning to drill its recently acquired Tetagouche zinc-lead-copper property in the Bathurst mining camp. The area hosts five historic massive sulphide deposits and a number of mineral occurrences.

The deposits are:

  • Armstrong A – 3.38 million tonnes at 3.26% Zn, 0.43% Pb, 0.29% Cu, 25.37 g/t Ag and 0.41 g/t Au;
  • Armstrong B – 488,500 tonnes at 1.10% Zn, 0.23% Pb, 0.67% Cu, 13.71 g/t Ag and 0.10 g/t Au;
  • Rocky Turn – 131,000 tonnes at 8.43% Zn, 2.69% Pb, 0.28% Cu, 101.00 g/t Ag and 3.10 g/t Au;
  • Canoe Landing Lake – 23.80 million tonnes at 1.82% Zn, 0.64% Pb, 0.56% Cu, 32.23 g/t Au and 1.17 g/t Au; and
  • McMaster – 250,000 tonnes at 0.75% Cu.

Wolfden said that the McMaster and Rocky Turn deposits have not been drilled since the late 1960s and are open at depth and along strike. Work is to begin in mid-March.

Wolfden noted that it has dropped its option on the Armstrong Brook property after a 10-hole drilling program late last year failed to located a bedrock source for several base metal boulders.
