Toronto, Ontario–(May 14, 2019) – Currie Rose Resources Inc. (TSXV: CUI) (“Currie” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the Company has received approval of its Notice of Work Permit application. This will enable the Company to commence drilling at the Rossland Gold Project in southern British Columbia.
Work by the company to date, has included an extensive document review of all exploration data within the Rossland Gold Camp including:
- the historic, high grade Rossland mines (Le Roi, War Eagle and Centre Star Mines) that produced over 2.7mozs gold between 1894 and 1941 and
- more recent historical exploration activities within the package that identified extensions to the historical mines through detailed geological mapping, geophysics and diamond drilling (Figure 1).
From the review, Currie identified 3 initial drill targets (Figure 1) which have been the subject of recent exploration by Currie in the form of a drone magnetic survey and re-processing of historic VLF-EM geophysics. This recent work, coupled with substantial historic information, has built target confidence through multiple anomaly data layering. (Refer: Press Release – Rossland Project Update 2019-03-04).
Michael Griffiths, Currie’s President and CEO, commented;
“The work done by our exploration team has identified significant iron rich anomalies commonly associated with the known gold mineralisation mined at Rossland. We are now in a position where drilling is the next step to bring new life to the Rossland Gold Camp.”
Mr Griffiths further commented, “We remain committed to working closely with the Rossland community and other stake holders to ensure any impacts will be minimised through consultation and discussion.”
