Aben Resources Ltd. May 23 said it plans to undertake a 5,000-meter drill program this year at its Forrest Kerr gold property located in northwestern British Columbia`s Golden Triangle region.
Slated to start mid-June, this drilling will initially focus on the expansion of high-grade precious metal mineralization discovered at the Boundary North zone last summer.
One such hole, FK17-04, cut 10 meters of 6.7 grams per metric ton gold, 6.4 g/t silver and 0.9 percent copper.
The next hole, FK17-05, cut 122 meters averaging 1.2 grams per metric ton gold, 1.8 g/t silver and 0.21 copper, including a 6-meter high-grade core averaging 21.5 g/t gold, 28.5 g/t silver and 3.1 percent copper.
FK17-06, also drilled at Boundary North, cut 94 meters averaging 0.51 g/t gold, 1.03 g/t silver and 0.1 percent copper, including 14 meters of 2.91 g/t gold, 5.2 g/t silver and 0.6 percent copper.
Aben believes the 2017 discovery demonstrates that the Boundary Zone, located near the center of the Forrest Kerr property has the potential to turn up additional significant gold, silver and copper mineralization.
"Notable regional discoveries by Pretium, GT Gold, Garibaldi Resources and others have illustrated the significant discovery upside remaining in the district and we are confident in the potential at Forrest Kerr given the newly discovered and historic high-grade mineralization there as well as the numerous untested gold-in-soil anomalies present," said Aben Resources President and CEO Jim Pettit.
