BRITISH COLUMBIA – Toronto’s Continental Precious Minerals now has the assays from its recent diamond drilling program at the DOK property located between the Schaft Creek and Galore Creek deposits in the northwest corner of the province. Continental is earning up to a 75% interest.

The 2014 drill program consisted of two holes. The first hole returned three intervals of >0.10% CuEq in potassic and phyllic altered andesite. The entire hole shows elevated concentrations of copper-gold-silver-molybdenum, said Continental. The lower 24.4 metres of hole one intersected 0.012% Mo as well as significant copper-gold-silver concentrations in hydrothermal breccia.

The second hole intersected three intervals averaging >0.10% CuEq in strongly potassic and phyllic altered andesite and quartz monzonite intrusive. This hole contains elevated concentrations of copper-gold-silver.

Continental said it hopes to have intersected the outer edge of a hydrothermal porphyry copper-gold deposit.
