NEW BRUNSWICK SLAM EXPLORATION of Miramichi, N.B., has made what it calls a “significant” new discovery of massive sulphides in the Bathurst Mining Camp. It has found angular boulders of massive and stringer sulphides over a strike length of 2 km. The boulders are associated with a series of untested airborne conductors and magnetic trends over a strike length of 15 km, says the company.
Encouraged by this discovery and significant geophysical association, Slam has launched an aggressive staking campaign acquiring a total of 607 claims. The wholly-owned property comprises 9,712 ha of highly prospective volcano-sedimentary rocks. The property, dubbed TSN after its location at the South Narrows, is located 50 km west of Miramichi where an extension of Tetagouche rocks extends southwest of the Bathurst Mining Camp. Slam says this area has seen very little exploration even though it hosts volcanic and sedimentary rocks similar to those hosting the world renowned Brunswick No. 12 mine.
The Bathurst mine is nearing the end of reserves and is slated to close in 2010.
