QUEBEC — Toronto-based Golden Hope Mines has begun bulk sampling the Timmins 2 vein at its Bellechasse gold project near St-Magliore. The program targets a previously unexposed quartz veining near the west end of the Timmins 2 structure. The sample is to be collected from the surface from mineralization drilled during the summer of 2008. Drilling, blasting, and collecting 200+ kg samples at 2-metre intervals across the approximately 26 metres width of the structure is underway.
The Bellechasse project includes the Timmins and Ascot gold zones, the Coucou volcanic target and a number of newly claimed serpentinite geological formations. For further information, visit www.GoldenHopeMines.com.
