MANITOBA – MURGOR RESOURCES of Montreal has intersected what it says are two new zones of massive sulphide mineralization at its Hudvam copper-gold-zinc deposit near Flin Flon. The zones were revealed by the first exploration hole the company drilled on the property.

The first sulphide intersection was discovered at least 275 metres away from any previously known mineralization at the deposit, between zone No.1 and zone No.3, at a vertical depth of 300 metres. The mineralization is open in all directions and points to a large area of high potential for exploration. Massive to semi-massive pyrite, pyrrhotite, chalcopyrite and sphalerite over 2.33 metres was found between 341.1 to 343.4 metres. Semi-massive pyrite, pyrrhotite, chalcopyrite and sphalerite mineralization was drilled between 354.7 and 356.0 metres.

The second intersection is located on a newly recognized mineralized horizon located approximately 75 metres in the hangingwall. This new discovery was intersected at a vertical depth of approximately 375 metres and is open in all directions. It returned massive to semi-massive pyrite, pyrrhotite, chalcopyrite and sphalerite over 5.50 metres.

Since January 2008, Murgor has completed more than 43 drill holes for a total of 10,475 metres drilled at the Hudvam property. The company has completed the metallurgical and geotechnical drilling required for the ongoing prefeasibility study at Hudvam. Murgor is currently drilling with two rigs at the property.
