Andover Ventures (OTC Other: AOVTF; TSX-V: AOX) has completed its 2011 drill program at the Sun Property in Alaska, including 7 drill holes totaling approximately 1,514 meters. The focus of the 2011 drill program was to test the down dip extension of the Main Sun Deposit, to verify historical drilling and to fill in gaps in the previous drill patterns on the Main Sun Deposit and to test the S.W. Sun area with three exploration drill holes. The 2011 drill core has been split and sent to ALS Minerals located in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, for assays. Results will be released when they are received.
According to Larry Segerstrom, the Company’s COO, “VMS Deposits tend to cluster in a District and the discovery and verification of the S.W. Sun Deposit only further underlines the tremendous potential of Andover’s holdings in the Ambler District. We have approximately 16 kms of strike to explore.”
