MAINE –Wolfden Resources of Thunder Bay, Ont., is in the midst of infill and expansion drilling at its wholly owned Picket Mountain zinc-lead-copper project in the northeast part of the state. The company says this is  one of the highest grade zinc-rich, volcanogenic massive sulphide deposits in North America and consists of two primary lenses (East and West) that remain open for expansion.

Drill hole P-18-028 in the East lens returned 5.0 metres grading 13.9% zinc, 5.3% lead and 0.6% copper, including 3.4 metres of 19.2% zinc, 7.4% lead and 0.6% copper.

HoleP-18-29 in the West lens was even better. It returned 15.0 metres of 14.5% zinc, 5.5% lead and 1.1% copper, including 10.6 metres of 19.3% zinc, 7.2% lead and 1.2% copper.

Both holes had gold and silver credits as well.

Wolfden is modeling the historical and recent drill results in order to upgrade the mineral resources. See the Pickett Mountain presentation by clicking here.
