Aben eyes high-grade zones at Forrest Kerr

Aben Resources Ltd. July 26 said a 2,100-meter drill program is slated to begin at its Forrest Kerr gold property in northwestern British Columbia during the first week of August.
This drilling will follow up on exploration carried out earlier this season at Forrest Kerr, where crews completed soil geochemical sampling, ground-truthed historic data and evaluated mineralization potential on a property-wide basis.
Focus was placed on areas containing historic high-grade precious- and base-metal occurrences.
Drilling will target extensions of known mineralized high-grade horizons located in the Carcass Creek and Boundary zones.
These zones reported some of the best grades on the Forrest Kerr property and the company feels there is the potential for the expansion of these known zones based on recent data compilation and field reconnaissance work.
There are also some more conceptual targets to be tested south of Boundary, including areas of outcrop with multiple shear zones and abundant sulfides.
Historical drill has encountered high-grade intercepts such as 29 meters of 9.97 grams per metric tons gold in the Carcass Creek zone and 11 meters of 33.4 g/t gold in the Boundary zone.
Aben has not been able to independently verify the methodology and results from historical work programs but believes that the historical work programs have been conducted in a professional manner and the quality of data and information produced from them are relevant.
