Aben Resources Ltd. (ABN:TSX.V; ABNAF:OTCQB) recently announced drilling at the Boundary North Zone discovery at the company's 100%-held 23,000-hectare Forrest Kerr Gold Project located in BC's Golden Triangle region. The company's program for 2018 will include a 5,000-meter diamond drilling program in approximately 18 holes with the potential for program expansion.
Expansion of the high-grade precious metal mineralization discovered in 2017 at the Boundary North Zone, located near the center of the Forrest Kerr Property, will be the initial focus of the 2018 program.
"Notable regional discoveries by Pretium, GT Gold, Garibaldi Resources, Snip, and others have illustrated the significant discovery upside remaining in the district and we are confident in the potential at Forrest Kerr given the newly discovered and historic high-grade mineralization there as well as the numerous untested goldin-soil anomalies present," said Aben President and CEO Jim Pettit.
Three separate drill holes, collared from the same drill pad, pierced a near-surface high-grade zone of gold-silver-copper mineralization, in addition to broad intercepts containing gold bearing quartz veins. The company believes this mineralized zone is trending and open to the northeast and the southwest and is open at depth.
Select results from those holes include 6.7 grams per tonne (g/t) gold, 6.4 g/t silver and 0.9% copper over 10 meters, including 18.9 g/t gold, 16.6 g/t silver and 2.2% copper over 3.0 meters in hole FK17-04, which contributed to an average grade of 0.26 g/t gold over 387 meters.
The company believes the Boundary Zone has additional discovery potential for significant precious metal mineralization, as demonstrated by the 2017 discovery.
