Boxxer Gold Corp. (OTC Other: BXXRF; TSX-V: BXX), in diamond drill hole DDH-07-2011, has intersected three intervals of visible oxide copper (malachite-copper oxide mineral) mineralization. The Quantec survey covered a large area around the former Oro Amigo (copper-gold) mine and the Keystone Thrust fault. The results of the three Titan-24 surveys completed in this portion of the Boss project have been compiled into a three dimensional (“3D”) model. The results from the structural geological study should be received in the next couple of weeks.
- Diamond Drill Hole (“DDH”) DDH-07-2011 intersected three intervals of visible oxide copper mineralization from 0 to 37.1m, from 139.3 to 145.7m and from 200.6 to 207.9m The drilling program has been suspended until mid-late September due to extreme temperature conditions;
- Target BE#1 (positive chargeability and low resistivity) that was previously tested by DDH-03-2010has been more precisely defined and measures approximately 1,000m by 1,000m at a depth of 300m below surface. A compilation of the three Titan-24 surveys that covered this target, suggests that the original DDH-03-2010 may have been drilled on the edge of the chargeability anomaly;
- Target BE#6 is a large almost circular shaped area (approximately 1,500m long by 2,000m wide at a depth of 300m below surface) of positive chargeability and moderate resistivity centered around the former Oro Amigo copper-gold mine;
- Target BE#7 is a continuous northeast trending zone (approximately 500m wide) of positive chargeability that extends from west of the former Boss Mine (copper-gold producer), through the Breccia zone and past the Oro Amigo mine (copper-gold) a distance of 6.0 kilometers.This anomaly appears to intersect the large circular anomaly located around the former Oro Amigo mine; and
- Geochemical results show that DDH-04-2011, DDH-05-2011 and DDH-06-2011 have intersected multiple intervals of anomalous gold and silver concentrations.
