Orestone Mining Corp. (TSX Venture Exchange–Symbol: ORS) (the “Company”) announces that drilling has begun on the 100% owned Captain gold-copper porphyry property in northern British Columbia.
The program will focus on the Admiral target, a large 2 km X 1 km intense IP anomaly measuring up to 25 mV/V which is modeled as the potential source of a 3 metre block of potassic-sericite altered intrusive intersected in previous drilling which assayed 1.9 g/t gold and 0.226 % copper. The Admiral gold porphyry target is bounded to the north by a prominent northeast trending fault which is interpreted to be a possible control to emplacement of the mineralization.
The drill program is budgeted at $400,000 and is planned to consist of 1,250 metres in five diamond drill holes to an approximate depth of 250 metres. The first 80 to 100 metres of overburden will be drilled with HW casing set into bedrock, drilling forward will be HQ. Subject to the rock type and alteration encountered, the drill rig will have all necessary supplies available for drilling to a depth of 700 metres.
The Captain property is located in flat terrain, 65 kilometers northeast of Ft. St. James and has excellent logistics. Access is by a provincial highway, Forestry Service roads and a network of logging roads on the property which has been extensively logged.
