NEW BRUNSWICK – Wolfden Resources Corp. of Thunder Bay, ON, continues to test two deposits at its Tetagouche property in the Bathurst mining camp. The property contains five historic massive sulphide deposits and a number of other mineral occurrences. The company focused this year on two deposits – McMaster and Armstrong A – and an area designated V10 in the eastern part of the property.

Wolfden had a 17-line-km gravity survey done over the McMaster deposit and surrounding area. The deposit has a non-compliant historic resource of 250,000 tonnes grading 0.75% Cu.

The Armstrong A deposit has a historic resource of 3.8 million tonnes grading 2.26% Zn, 0.42% Pb, 0.39% Cu, 25.4 g/t Ag and 0.41 g/t Au. Wolfden drilled three holes, one of which intersected 10.4 metres of 0.22% Cu, 0.48% Pb, 1.27% Zn, 14.3 g/t Ag and 0.74 g/t Au, grades deemed uneconomic by the company.

At the V10 target area, Wolfden is looking for the bedrock source of many high grade massive sulphide boulder clusters. A program of soil sampling EM surveys and geological mapping is underway. Drilling is planned for late September or early October.

Additional results will be made public as they become available at WolfdenResources.com.
