On August 24th, (see News Release) Aben announced it had expanded its current drill program at its 23,000 hectare Forrest Kerr Gold Property located in British Columbia’s Golden Triangle region. The expanded drill program will include drill holes testing the Boundary Zones to confirm and extend the high grade gold mineralization discovered in historical drilling. Drilling conducted in the early 1990’s and 2000’s at this zone returned some of the highest grades on the Forrest Kerr Property and the Company feels there is the potential for the expansion of the known zone based on recent data compilation, structural geological interpretation and additional field reconnaissance work.
Historical drilling results at the Forrest Kerr Project have ranged from trace values to several high-grade intercepts such as 9.97 g/t gold over 29.3 metres, including 125 g/t Au over 0.8 metres and 91 g/t Au over 1.9 metres, in hole RG91-21 in the Carcass Creek Zone as well as 33.4 g/t gold over 11 metres, including 326 g/t over 0.5 metres, in hole RG91-16 in the Boundary Zone. This high grade mineralization is within 200 metres vertical depth from surface and the Carcass and Boundary Zones are approx. 4 kilometres apart leaving robust discovery potential along strike, at depth and at other regional targets on the property.
