Michael Griffiths, Currie’s President and CEO, commented.
“The Company has withdrawn from most of the Rossland Project excluding the 100% owned Golden 8 claim which is well placed geologically for “Rossland style” mineralisation. We are now looking to conduct some first pass exploration to advance our understanding of its prospectivity.”
“We are also pursuing other project options to add shareholder value.”
Rossland Gold Project – Golden 8 Prospect
Previous historic mineral exploration work on the Golden 8 property included 66.3 metres of diamond drilling, VLF – EM ground geophysics programs and general prospecting activities.
Rossland type silver – gold – lead – zinc bearing vein structures were identified in the 2003 drill program and VLF-EM anomalies were generated in each of the ground geophysical programs. In 2013, ground prospecting near the south-eastern boundary of the mineral claim successfully identified float material that may be a continuation of gossanous sulphide vein showings identified in the area1.
Future prospecting, sampling and detailed VLF-EM targeted exploration should concentrate on the Gossan and the eastern extension area of the Golden 8 Mineral Claim.
