ZINC-LEAD: Wolfden assays bonanza grades from boulder train at Armstrong Brook

NEW BRUNSWICK – Wolfden Resources Corp. of Thunder Bay, ON, is tracing a high grade base metal boulder train through its Armstrong Brook property in the Bathurst Mining Camp.



NEW BRUNSWICK – Wolfden Resources Corp. of Thunder Bay, ON, is tracing a high grade base metal boulder train through its Armstrong Brook property in the Bathurst Mining Camp.

Assays from some of the sulphide boulders were as high as 21.10% Zn, 7.14% Pb, 0.26% Cu, 191 g/t Ag and 0.56 g/t Au.

The Armstrong Brook property has been the target of Wolfden’s prospecting efforts to locate a local bedrock source of the boulders. The boulders occur in abundance, near surface and in angular shapes. Wolfden has identified and sampled nine major clusters of massive sulphide boulders in the last year. The company says that geological evidence it has compiled strongly suggests a local bedrock source for the boulder clusters. All of the clusters occur adjacent or close to the contact between sedimentary rocks of the Millstream Formation and overlying mafic volcanic rocks of the Sormany Formation. Along the contact where the boulders are found, the sediments are silicified and pyritic and outcrops of altered felsic volcanic rock are also found.

Exploration at Armstrong Brook is in the earliest stages, so check frequently at WolfdenResources.com to learn what the next news will be.
