ONTARIO – Toronto-based MacDonald Mines Exploration has drilled zinc rich massive sulphide mineralization at its Butler property 50 km southwest of Webequie and 35 km from the Big Daddy chromite deposit in the James Bay Lowlands. The company has identified multiple centres of extrusion, leading it to believe there is the potential to outline several volcanic massive sulphide deposits on the property. Geophysics indicates that deposits in excess of 20 million tonnes may be present.

MacDonald mines has been drilling four targets on the property. Hole BP12-Cu14 cut 41.5 metres of 0.4% Cu, 3.26% Zn and 6 g/t Ag including intersections of 12.5 metres grading 8.54% Zn and 6.24 g/t Au and 5.0 metres grading 1.18% Cu, 3.86% Zn and 14.48 Ag. Hole BP12-Cu16 cut 14.0 metres of 0.56% Cu, 1.83% Zn and 11.31 g/t Ag.

The company is currently compiling and analyzing data before choosing new VMS drilling targets. Additionally, the company is analyzing nickel and vanadium data collected on the Butler property.

    I am having a problem trying to put all these small maps into one larger map that would cover all of the Ring of Fire. I would appreciate it if you could send me a map that would cover the entire “Ring of fire”.

    Thank You
