Vancouver, British Columbia — June 6, 2018 Colorado Resources Ltd. (“Colorado” or the “Company”) (TSXV – CXO) is pleased to announce plans for 6,000 metres (“m”) of diamond drilling on their 100% owned KSP and Kinaskan-Castle properties located in British Columbia’s prolific Golden Triangle region. Colorado is recognized as one of the largest landholders in the Golden Triangle with approximately 1,200 sq. km of mineral claims. Current exploration is focused on targeting high grade-gold, porphyry copper-gold and precious-metal rich volcanogenic massive sulphide deposits.
Drilling on the 308 sq. km KSP Property will follow-up on multiple targets previously drill tested during the 2016-2017 field seasons. The top priorities of a planned 4,500 m program include:
- step-out drilling of a porphyry copper-gold discovery at the Tami prospect;
- expansion of high-grade gold mineralization along the Big Rock Deformation Zone (BRDZ); and
- exploration of high-grade zinc mineralization associated with a volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) occurrence in the Inel Zinc zone (see KSP Target Map, below).
Selected highlights from the 2016-2017 drill programs at each of these targets include the following:
- Tami - Drill Hole TMDDH17-115 returned a 40 m interval grading 1.74 g/t Au with 0.24% Cu
- BRDZ – Drill Hole INDDH16-29 returned a 5 m interval grading 11.5 g/t Au (assays capped at 31 g/t Au)
- Inel Zinc VMS Target – Drill Hole INDDH17-075 returned a 10 m interval grading 21.38% Zn with 0.96 g/t Au
Results for Colorado’s 2016 and 2017 drill programs can be found at www.coloradoresources.com. Colorado’s 2018 drill program at KSP will systematically follow-up on these results and test other drill targets including Upper Inel, A-J and Pins (KSP Map, below).
In addition, exploration will continue at the 178 sq. km Kinaskan-Castle property, located 2 km west of GT Gold’s Saddle Zone discovery1, where an 18,000 m drill program targeting porphyry-style and high-grade gold and copper mineralization has been announced for 2018 (GTGold1 news, April 24, 2018). Colorado’s 2018 plans include additional IP surveys and 1,600 m of diamond drilling, to follow-up on previous geophysical work geological mapping and high-grade gold mineralization discovered in float samples collected during 2017 (see Colorado press release dated Jan. 5, 2018 and results summarized in Kinaskan-Castle Target Map, below). The Kinaskan-Castle program will test the extension of known porphyry copper-gold mineralization as well as the potential for high grade gold mineralization.
Colorado President and CEO, Robert Shaw, proudly states “CXO’s technical team is excited to present plans for our 2018 Golden Triangle exploration program to our shareholders and new Board of Directors. We will be mobilizing our field crews into the Golden Triangle beginning July 1st, in order to effectively execute our flow-through funded program, initially budgeted at $2.95 million.
“Colorado is in a privileged position to choose drill targets from numerous high-quality mineral occurrences, of various styles representing a variety of commodities, including gold, copper and zinc. We look forward to announcing the results of our program as the season progresses.”
Regarding the civil claim initiated by Colorado against former CEO Adam Travis and his company Cazador Resources Ltd. (“Cazador”), the Company announces that, further to the Company’s news releases of March 19, 2018 and April 11, 2018, as part of the settlement with Mr. Travis with respect to the composition of the Company’s board of directors and nominees to be elected at Colorado’s annual meeting of shareholders held on April 17, 2018, the civil claim against Mr. Travis and Cazador was dismissed. An independent accounting firm has been engaged to complete an investigation regarding matters that were in dispute with Mr. Travis.
Finally, the Company announces the resignation of Terese Gieselman as CFO of Colorado. In order to assist Colorado with transition, Ms. Gieselman and her consulting company MinCo Corporate Management Inc. will continue to provide contractual services until June 19, 2018. Robert Shaw, President and CFO of Colorado states “Terese has done an outstanding job as CFO and Corporate Secretary for Colorado over the years. We are grateful for her support during this period of transition.”
