VANCOUVER, Dec. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - Blue River Resources
Ltd. (TSX.V: BXR) (OTC: BRVRF) ("Blue River" or "the Company")
announces exploration results from a recent surface sampling
program on the Castle Copper Project and an updated exploration
plan for the 2015 field season for the Company's Mazama Copper
CASTLE COPPER PROJECT
The Company recently conducted a surface sampling program on the
Castle Copper Project, located near Princeton BC, and approximately 25 km north of
the Copper Mountain Mine.
Copper grades from 24 rock grab samples ranged from a high of
2.2% copper on surface and averaged 0.5% Cu. The sampled area is
from a zone of highly fractured and sheared Nicola Group volcanic
Future exploration plans on the Castle Project call for an IP
survey to the north and west of previously drilled areas of the
Castle Project with the emphasis on locating porphyry copper
mineralization drill targets.
Permitting for the upcoming drill program on the Company's 100%
owned Mazama Copper Deposit is continuing, with field work by the
US Forest Service having been completed. The Company estimates
receiving the permit in the first quarter of 2015.
The permit was delayed by the largest wildfire in Washington State's history, in the eastern
Methow Valley. The Mazama Copper Deposit is located in the western
part of the Methow Valley, Okanogan
County, WA, approximately 25 km south of the Canada/US border in North Central Washington,
143 km northeast of Seattle. Both
the Castle Project and Mazama Copper Deposit are situated on the
southern extension of the Quesnel Trough copper belt, one of the
most prolific copper producing areas in North America.
Quintana Minerals Corp., in 1975, calculated an historical
resource* on the Mazama property
of 149 million tons grading 0.36% copper and 0.01% molybdenum, or
approximately 1 billion pounds of copper. Although historic adits
that were explored for gold mineralization are located on the
property, no gold assays were reported.
The Company has completed geological mapping and sampling, a
LIDAR survey, topographic mapping and located historic drill
Blue River will conduct a
minimum 2,000 meters (6,000 feet) of diamond drilling, to confirm
previously delineated areas of mineralization, as well as test new
potential areas of mineralization developed from the 2014
exploration and staking program. The objective of the 2015
exploration program is to confirm and expand the historic copper
mineralization located within the Mazama Copper Deposit. The
Company has paid a 50% deposit for drilling and geological work for
this exploration program.
