Stewart, BC – Decade Resources Ltd. (“Decade”) reports that during the 2013 field season, an extensive program of mapping, sampling, prospecting, trenching and diamond drilling was completed on the Bow property. The property consists of 2 claims totaling 471 hectares located 50 kilometres north of Stewart in the Skeena Mining Division. It is contiguous with the Scottie Gold mine Crown Granted claims that host the former Scottie Gold mine. This mine which operated from 1981 to 1985 milled vein material averaging 16.20 g/t gold, producing 2,967,748 grams of gold (95,426 ounces gold) from 183,147 tonnes of mineralization.
The property is located along volcanic rocks on the boundary with the Summit Lake stock, part of the Texas Creek Plutonic suite in the Stewart Area. This suite of rocks is related to alteration and mineralization at the former producing Premier mine 20 km south of the property and the KSM copper-gold porphyries and Brucejack Lake gold deposits 20 kilometres north of the property.
Previous exploration had outlined 3 zones on the property; namely the Bend, Blueberry and Road (now called the Oro Grande) veins. These are banded quartz-carbonate veins mineralized with gold-bearing pyrrhotite, pyrite, chalcopyrite, galena and sphalerite occurring as en echelon fracture fillings in an east-west direction. Veins can be up to 5 metres in width but generally average 2-3 metres. The Bend vein has been drill tested along 100 metres of strike length and 50 metres of depth. A historical inferred resource was outlined in the drilled portion that included 18,200 tonnes @ 10.97 g/t gold. This resource is historical and has not been confirmed through drilling and sampling by the company. These numbers are for reference purposes only and should not be relied upon. Examination of historical longitudinal sections indicates that mineralization is open along strike and to depth from the above drilling on the Bend vein.
Three main areas were explored; namely the Bend vein and possible east extension, the Oro Grande-Blueberry vein area and the area near the south end of the Bow claim. Work defined 3 new veins and a possible 4th one along the access tunnel to the Scottie Gold mine near the “A” portal. This access tunnel starts at the southwestern portion of the Bow claim and was driven southwest for 2.3 km to the Scottie Gold mine area. The dumps for the broken muck from the first 500 metres of the tunnel (in the Bow claim) are at the “A” portal. Pieces of massive pyrrhotite-pyrite mineralization are present in this dump indicating the presence of a vein and/or veins in this first 500 metres of drifting.
Fine visible gold is present in bluish quartz fragments within a matrix of massive pyrrhotite-pyrite. Exploration in 2014 will attempt to locate the source of the mineralized dump material.
Samples and core collected during the 2013 field season have been stored in a secure company owned facility. A total of 365 surface samples including chip, grab and select grab have been submitted for analyses. Core is being logged and will be sent to the laboratory upon completion of cutting.
