Bearing Resources Ltd. ("Bearing", or the "Company") (TSX-V: BRZ) announces the drill results for the Company's 2,322 metre (7 hole) drill program completed on the Zymo Copper-Gold Project ("Zymo") located 45 kilometres west of Smithers in British Columbia. This is a second phase of exploration by Bearing that initially began in 2011 and that has included diamond drilling, property wide prospecting, and targeted soil geochemistry and geophysics. After a thorough review of the results the Company has elected to relinquish its option to earn a 65% interest in the project from Eastfield Resources Ltd.
Details of the recent drilling are presented below. Drill intervals reported are core lengths and true widths are not known. Copper equivalent calculations do not take into account metallurgical recoveries and are based on in-ground metal using metal prices of US$1,200/ounce for gold and US$2.50/pound for copper.
|Hole ID||Target||From (m)||To (m)||Interval (m)||Au (g/t)||Cu (%)||Ag (g/t)||CuEq (%)|
|ZY12-29||FM||Lost at 27 m|
|ZY12-31||RD||No sig. results|
|ZY12-33||Hobbes||No sig. results|
Drill core was sampled in three-metre intervals and cut with a diamond saw with one-half of the core placed in sealed plastic bags and delivered to Acme Analytical Laboratories Inc. ("Acme") in Smithers for crushing and pulverizing. Sample pulps were then analysed by Acme in their Vancouver lab following aqua regia digestion by ICP-MS. As part of the company's QA/QC (quality assurance/quality control) procedures, standards and blanks were inserted into the sample batches. ACME is an ISO 9001-registered laboratory and has a quality control program in place which includes the insertion of standard, blank and duplicate samples, as well as conducting repeat analyses. Field work and project management was under the direct supervision of Bruce Laird, P. Geo.. Robert Cameron, P.Geo., who is a qualified person within the context of National Instrument 43-101, has read and takes responsibility for this news release.
