BRITISH COLUMBIA – International Samuel Exploration of Vancouver knows it will take more than a kiss to turn its Frog gold-copper property 170 km southeast of Dease Lake into a prince of a producer. Meanwhile, the company conducted a multi-phase exploration program on it last year, doing regional reconnaissance, detailed prospecting and detailed petrologic analysis of outcrop and subcrop mineralization.

ISS geologists collected 101 rock samples from the Forex prospect that returned copper values of 0.1% or higher. The best grab sample contained 4.28% Cu and 4.0 g/t Au. Twenty-eight samples had elevated molybdenum values with an average of 724 ppm. The company says the moly values appear to be associated with rhenium.

The company holds two other copper prospects in British Columbia an one in Manitoba. Read the fact sheet posted at InternationalSamuel.com.
