Vancouver, British Columbia - King’s Bay Resources Corp. (TSX.V: KBG), (FSE: KGB1), a mineral exploration company based in Vancouver Canada is pleased to announce that they have received drilling approval and have initiated a drilling program at King’s Bay’s 100% owned Lynx Lake Copper-Cobalt Project in southeastern Labrador.
King’s Bay has begun drill access preparation and expects to have a drilling crew mobilized immediately, following trail completion. The drill program will consist of a minimum of 2 diamond drill holes totaling 500 meters. The drill hole placement and orientation has been determined based upon the amalgamation of the previously flown VTEM survey anomalies and the bedrock structure in the West Pit. The previously announced VTEM results identified an anomaly that is anticipated to be ranging in depth from 50-300 meters and estimated to be approximately 400 meters in diameter.
Kevin Bottomley states “The upcoming drilling program on Lynx Lake Copper-Cobalt property in Labrador is the pinnacle of the hard work from our entire geological and technical teams. We are committed to advancing the Lynx Lake property in Labrador as well as our Trump Island property in Newfoundland.”
Lynx Lake Project
The Lynx Lake Copper-Cobalt Property consists of 959 mineral claims encompassing a land area of approximately 240 square kilometers, located 100 kilometers southeast of Happy Valley Goose Bay, Newfoundland and Labrador. A Versatile Time Domain Electromagnetic Survey was flown by Geotech Ltd. identified an area in the “west pit” of high conductivity and low resistivity. The “west pit” has been historically sampled yielding assays of up to 1.03% Copper, 0.56% Cobalt, 0.23% Vanadium, 0.10% Nickel and 5.0g/t Silver. The Lynx lake Project has also returned historical grab samples assaying up to 1.39% Cu, .94% Co, .21% Ni and 6.5g/t Ag. The Project is located directly adjacent to a 3 phase powerline and the Trans- Labrador Highway.
About King’s Bay
King’s Bay is focused on the exploration of cobalt and other high‐tech metals in North America. The Company believes in this emerging fast‐growth sector and will continue to seek out and evaluate properties that show promise for development.
