BATHURST, New Brunswick FIRST NARROWS RESOURCES reports that a step-out hole has intersected 5.65 m of high-grade mineralization in the Chester Feeder zone near here. Assays averaged 5.65% Cu, 9.7 g/t Ag, 0.264 g/t Au, 33.4 g/t Bi, 224.8 g/t Co, 31.5 g/t Ga, 49.1 g/t In, and 8.6 g/t Sc. The same hole also hit a second copper zone about 10 m below the high-grade zone over a length of about 14 m. This zone had a 4.5-m higher grade zone with higher gallium and scandium values than the upper zone.
"The assay results from this fall's Phase 1 drill program continue to support the historical records that show high-grade copper zones are common throughout the 1-km-long Chester Feeder zone. We now expect significant polymetallic mineralization to persist with the copper zones throughout the Chester Feeder zone, underscoring the company's position that Chester is a potential major mineral resource," stated Peter Gummer, president of First Narrows.
A 30,000-m definition drilling program is recommended to advance the project to the prefeasibility stage. Schematic plans of the Chester Feeder and VMS deposits are posted at www.uno.ca.
