Vancouver, BC – Rockhaven Resources Ltd. (TSX-V:RK | OTC:RKHNF) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce details of the 2017 exploration program at its 100% owned and road accessible Klaza property, located in the Dawson Range Gold Belt of southern Yukon. The work program has commenced and will include 16,000 m of diamond drilling, geophysical surveys, soil geochemical sampling and metallurgical test work.
Diamond drilling will utilize two drills and will prioritize:
- Further definition and expansion of near-surface mineral resources through infill and step-out drilling at the Klaza and BRX zones;
- Exploration for new mineralization by testing numerous geophysical and soil geochemical targets located close to the known resource areas; and,
- Collection of material that will be used in advanced metallurgical and pre-concentration test work to optimize processing, reduce costs and lower cut-off grades. Initial test work done in 2016 has shown that pre-concentration has considerable promise.
“We are excited to commence a major diamond drill program at the Klaza property with the support of an experienced mining group. The main objectives of the program are to increase the confidence of potential open-pit mineral resources from inferred to indicated, explore for new gold discoveries and continue to advance the metallurgical and engineering facets of the Klaza project,” stated Matt Turner, Rockhaven’s President and CEO. “We look forward to rapidly advancing the Klaza project with the help of Coeur Mining’s technical team.”
