- Aben Resources (ABN) has launched a field work program at its Forrest Kerr gold project in the Golden Triangle region of British Columbia
- The program will seek to further define existing targets and identify new targets for a drill program later in the season
- It’s expected to include mapping, prospecting, soil and rock sampling, primarily on the west bank of the Boundary Valley
- This process is similar to that which was used to identify the high-grade gold zone at North Boundary
- Aben Resources (ABN) is currently up 4.17 per cent and is trading at C$0.12 per share
Aben Resources (ABN) has launched a field work program at its Forrest Kerr gold project in the Golden Triangle region of British Columbia.
Located in the heart of the prolific gold regions, the wholly owned Forrest Kerr project covers a total of 23,397 hectares and consists of 56 mineral claims across four separate blocks.
Since Aben Resources began its exploration work in 2016, a number of key areas have been identified, including the Boundary Valley which hosts significant surface gold mineralisation and complex structural intersections.
These features are thought to indicate the potential for additional sub-surface, high-grade gold mineralisation.
Initial field work will seek to further define existing targets and develop new areas of interest for a drill program later in the season.
This will include mapping, prospecting, soil and rock sampling, primarily focused on the west bank of the Boundary Valley approximately 500 metres south of the high-grade North Boundary zone.
The West Bank of the Boundary Valley is suspected to host a 300-metre-long corridor of polymetallic mineralisation, which previously returned between 10 and 43.4 grams per tonne of gold in outcrop rock samples.
This sampling also returned between 29.2 and 46 grams per tonne of silver and between 1.3 per cent and 4.6 per cent copper.
Jim Pettit, President and CEO of Aben Resources, said he is pleased to be back at the Forrest Kerr project for another season of exploration.
“We have utilised the off season to work up some very site-specific targets based on detailed drill analytics, surface sampling, and geophysical analysis from the past three years.
“As stated in this news release, we will start in an area that has an abundance of high-grade surface and outcrop mineralization that is coincidental with down-hole mineralization directly below the surface samples,” he added.
Jim further noted that this method of exploration is the same process that was used to identify the high-grade gold zone at North Boundary.
Aben Resources (ABN) is up 4.17 per cent and is trading at C$0.12 per share at 1:16pm EDT.
