North ROK 2014 Phase I Drilling (5holes, 2191 m)
As announced on May 7, 2014 the 2014 drill program followed the recommendations of the NI 43-101 report to target the expansion of the known inferred resource and drill untested kilometre scale geophysical anomalies that cluster around the existing resource.
5 diamond drillholes totalling 2191m were completed by June 15th for this initial phase, the final shipment of drill core arrived at the laboratory on June 16th with final results expected in early July.
Eldorado 2014 Phase I Drilling ( 4holes, 892 m)
As announced on May 7, 2014 the focus of drilling at Eldorado was to follow up last year’s drill intercept in EL13-004 of 0.33 g/t Au and 0.14% Cu over 71 m and to drill test adjacent altered areas for increased copper and gold values in a geological setting similar to the East Zone at Red Chris.
4 diamond drillholes, totalling 892 m were completed by June 4th for this initial phase, the final shipment of drill core arrived at the laboratory on June 6th with final results expected in late June.
Adam Travis, President and C.E.O of Colorado commented “We are very pleased with the progress Colorado has made in the last month at both North ROK and Eldorado. Our technical team has delivered the Phase I projects on time and under budget. We eagerly await the assay results from both these projects in the Red Chris area and look forward to commencing our 2014 work program shortly at the Company’s KSP property in the Snip Camp.”
Colorado Resources Ltd. is currently engaged in the business of mineral exploration for the purpose of acquiring and advancing mineral properties located in British Columbia and is also seeking opportunities in Southwest USA and Latin America.
