Mining News: Aben confirms new zone at Forrest Kerr

Aben Resources Ltd. Nov. 6 reported that drilling has encountered broad zones of copper-gold-silver mineralization in the Boundary zone at the company’s Forrest Kerr project in the Golden Triangle region of northwestern British Columbia. FK17-05, drilled in the recently identified Boundary North zone cut 122 meters averaging 1.2 grams per metric ton gold, 1.8 g/t copper and 0.21 copper, including a 6-meter high-grade core averaging 21.5 g/t gold, 28.5 g/t silver and 3.1percent 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 said the mineralization at Boundary Zone remains open. “The success to date confirms our belief that the discovery of the Boundary North Zone could represent a sizable mineralized hydrothermal system,” said Aben CEO Jim Pettit. “Given the new and historic high-grade mineralization and numerous untested gold-in-soil anomalies we look forward to returning to the property next year to continue our exploration in order to unlock the full potential of the Boundary Zone.”
