BRITISH COLUMBIA REDFERN RESOURCES, a wholly-owned subsidiary of REDCORP VENTURES, is encouraged by results from the on-going drill program on its Tulsequah Chief property 100 km south of Atlin. Redfern says the recent holes confirm the continuity and high-grade nature of the deposit. One of the four latest holes returned 6.81 g/t Au, 229.01 g/t Ag, 0.85% Cu, 3.69% Pb and 11.12% Zn over a true width of 9.0 metres. Complete results are available at www.redcorp-ventures.com.
Redfern plans to redevelop the Tulsequah Chief mine, and it has had its Project Approval Certificate since December 2002. The deposit has a historical resource estimate of 5.9 million tonnes measured and indicated grading 2.59 g/t Au, 107.41 g/t Ag, 1.42% Cu, 1.26% Pb and 6.72% Zn. There is also an inferred resource of about 3.0 million tonnes grading 2.42 g/t Au, 107.86 g/t Ag, 1.10% Cu, 1.19% Pb and 6.38% Zn.
