Drill Results June 2010
The first-phase drilling program was conducted in the early summer of 2010. A total of eight holes were drilled testing this surface gold showing. Thick zones of continuous gold mineralization were intersected in holes BL10-02 to BL10-07 and represent 250 metres of potential strike length along the gold zone. All six holes ended in mineralization and the true width of the mineralization remained unknown at the time. Hole BL10-02 intersected 91 metres averaging 2 g/t Au while Hole BL10-04 was collared at the same setup as BL10-02 but drilled in the opposite direction to BL10-02 and returned a 78 metre interval averaging 0.7 g/t Au. This fanned setup identified continuous gold mineralization over 133 metres in width (plan view) and failed to pierce the hangingwall (upper) or footwall (lower) contacts of the gold zone. Sixty metres to the southeast, Hole BL10-05 returned an 86 metre intercept grading 1 g/t Au and BL10-06 contained a 78 metre interval averaging 0.9 g/t Au. Within all of these broad mineralized intercepts at least two significant higher-grade zones were identified with intervals returning up to 5.3 g/t Au over 5 metres including samples of up to 15.5 g/t Au over one metre.
Gold mineralization in the discovery area appeared to be associated with a broad zone of disseminated sulphide, and is characterized by a lack of quartz veining. At the time, the horizon could be traced from airborne geophysics over approximately 1.2 kilometres within Probe's property and was identified from surface to a vertical depth of 117 metres. The zone remained open in both directions along strike and at depth.
