Berkwood Resources Resumes Resource Expansion and Definition Drilling at Lac Gueret South, QC
TSX VENTURE: BKR
March 5th, 2018 / TheNewswire / VANCOUVER, B.C. / Berkwood Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: BKR, FSE: BK2, WKN: A110N3) ("Berkwood" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the immediate resumption of resource expansion and definition drilling on Zone 1 at the Company's 100% owned Lac Gueret Project.
The Phase 3 program is currently underway and includes a planned 1,500m of drilling in nine HQ diamond drill holes to further test for strike continuity of mineralization along the target regional conductor, to improve our understanding of the orientation of the mineralized horizons, and to further define graphite mineralization at the Zone 1 Graphite Prospect. The Company is focused on Zone 1 because all 18 holes drilled to date have returned significant graphite intervals.
Tom Yingling, President and CEO states, "Field crews have been on site at Lac Gueret since early February and have been performing detailed structural logging and analysis of previous drill core. This was deemed a critical step to best define how we continue to build on the exciting results from our 2017 drill programs with this next phase of drilling on Zone 1."
The Company is engaged with certain work dedicated to characterization of features of the mineralization relevant to its suitability for entry to the global graphite market: initial findings will be made available to the public in the very near term.
Lac Gueret South Zone 1
Lac Gueret South is located in Cote Nord, Quebec, a three-hour drive from Baie-Comeau in an area with very good infrastructure. The Project lies directly south of Mason Graphite's (TSX-LLG) advanced Lac Gueret Project. Mason is developing one of the largest medium to high-grade graphite deposits in the world.
During the recently completed 18-hole Phase 1 and 2 drill programs on Zone 1 that totalled 2,525m, the Company is pleased to announce it has intersected visual Graphite in every hole drilled to date. (See news releases of assay results dated December 17th, 2017 and February 15th, 2018.) Success in these drill programs confirms that a significant component of the distinct electromagnetic conductors that occur over a two kilometer strike length and 50 meters to 600 meters in width as defined by airborne EM geophysics (see the Berkwood news release dated February 10, 2015) includes graphite mineralization.
