Vancouver, BC – Decade Resources Ltd. (“Decade” or the “Company”) reports it has received government approval to continue drilling on an expanded area of the Wedeene copper-gold discovery in the Kitimat area of British Columbia. As of July 28th, drilling has resumed to the east and north of DDH-2010-J-1 to 10.
Chalcopyrite is associated with pyritic zones in highly silicified rocks and assay data to date shows a strong correlation between copper and gold mineralization. The pyritic zones which contain 5-7% pyrite and local chalcopyrite are associated with strong local “potassic” and pervasive “phyllic” alteration zones intruded by strongly epidote altered dykes.
Assay results for some of the earlier holes include 109 metres of 0.48% copper and 1.0 g/t gold in DDH-2010-J-1, 107 metres 0.45% copper and 0.80 g/t gold in DDH-2010-J-2 and 117 metres of 0.54% copper and 1.03 g/t gold in DDH-2010-J-7. Complete assay results are available on the company website at www.decaderesources.ca. Assay results for DDH-2010-J-5, 9 and 10 are pending.
All the above holes bottomed in sericite altered, pyritic rocks hosting the copper-gold mineralization with an apparent increase in overall copper and gold values towards the northeast. A description of the orientation and relationship of the various drill holes is available on the Decade website.
The Company plans to continue drilling in the area of DDH-2010-J-1 to 10 in order to further define the extent of the copper-gold mineralization. In addition, the Company plans to drill test the various magnetic lows which have coincidental copper-gold geochemical anomalies.
The mineralization intersected on the Wedeene project is well located being only 14 kilometres from tide water at Kitimat, 6 kilometres from a major power line and 5 kilometres from a railway. Elevations at the property are low enough that exploration can occur year round.
Ed. Kruchkowski, P. Geo., a qualified person under National Instrument 43-101, is in charge of the exploration program on behalf of the company. All samples are assayed by Assayers Canada of Vancouver, BC.
