NUNAVUT Just last week WOLFDEN RESOURCES of Thunder Bay said that drilling and ground geophysical surveys were demonstrating the potential for expanding mineralization at its High Lake property in the Kitikmeot region. The company reported that massive sulphides were intersected at a depth of as much as 850 metres, almost twice as deep as previous drilling.

Previously released assays from step-out drilling returned intersections as rich as 4.06% Cu and 2.85% Zn between 371.05 and 400.10 metres, and as a bonus, 126.45 g/t Ag and 4.13 g/t Au. Results from deep hole HLW-03-71 intersected 1.58% Cu, 0.29% Zn and 131.92 g/t Ag and 0.17 g/t Au between 876 and 878 metres plus 0.78% Cu, 3.80% Zn, 49.73 g/t Ag and 0.36 g/t Au between 933 and 938 metres.

The recently updated longitudinal section on the website, www.WolfdenResources.com, suggests that mineralization may be open along strike to the north and thickening with depth, says the company. The West zone extension, along strike to the south, also remains open.

Ground geophysical work using a Geonics EM-37 system has identified two parallel conductors immediately south of, and along strike from, the West zone, reports Wolfden. These anomalies, named Deep West and W2, will be tested by drilling in the near future. The W2 anomaly has a similar geophysical profile as that associated with the West Zone. Work is also underway to define a third conductor associated with the West Zone stratigraphy located further to the south.
