BRITISH COLUMBIA - Vancouver's SELKIRK METALS reports satisfactory underground progress at its Ruddock Creek zinc-lead mine 100 km northwest of Revelstoke. The portal was collared in late September 2007 and the decline has advanced 200 metres as of mid-January.
Underground diamond drilling will begin when the decline has reached a depth of approximately 800 metres. Drilling will provide the detailed information necessary to finalize a resource calculation of the entire E-Zone. The information will also be used to begin engineering and design for a scoping study.
Once all the final results have been compiled from the 2007 surface diamond drilling program on the E-Zone, Selkirk plans to complete an updated resource calculation of the upper portion of the zone where sufficient drilling has already been completed. This will allow for a reasonable estimation of the potential of the entire E-Zone to the depth defined.
The company has included excellent photos and diagrams of the Ruddock Creek project on its website, www.SelkirkMetals.com.
