Brazil Resources works fast in Alaska

Just one month after releasing its first resource on the Island Mountain gold-copper porphyry at its Whistler project in central Alaska, Brazil Resources (TSXV: BRI; US-OTC: BRIZF) has completed a maiden resource for the project’s Raintree West deposit.

The Whistler project, 150 km northwest of Anchorage, is a 170 km2 land package that hosts the Whistler, Raintree West and Island Mountain porphyry deposits, all of which now have National Instrument 43-101 resources, in addition to several porphyry targets.

The latest resource brings total resources at the project to 2.797 million gold equivalent ounces in the indicated category (110.28 million tonnes grading 0.50 g/t Au, 1.72 g/t Ag, 0.14% Cu) and 6.731 million gold equivalent ounces in the inferred category (311.26 million tonnes averaging 0.47 g/t Au, 2.26 g/t Ag and 0.11% Cu).

All three deposits are open in several directions, and the company says future drill programs will focus on delineating higher grade, near surface zones, adding to existing resources and testing adjacent porphyry targets.
