70.49 gm/t Silver over 214.7m (incl. 1,484 gm/t Silver over 6.3m)
8.51% gm/t Silver Over 74.4 Meters
Quartz Breccia Zone


July 6, 2016 - Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada: Bard Ventures Ltd. ("Bard" or the "Company") is pleased to provide a summary of the previously reported final results from its exploration drill program on its Lone Pine Property (the "Property"). With the present increase in Silver prices, the Company is very pleased and encouraged by the positive results received from drill holes BD-11-67 to BD 11-70 demonstrating the continuity of high grade mineralization through areas of widely spaced drill hole intercepts (see News Releases dated September 6, 9, 19, and 22, 2011). The Property is located 15 kilometers north-northwest of Houston, BC and is situated in the Omineca Mining Division.

There has been no low or high assay cutoffs applied to any analytical results as the project is still in the exploration phase. The only interval that had non-detectable silver (<0.5gm/t) in the interval from 18.6 meters to 233.3 meters reported above was from 55.4 meters to 58.4 meters, a drilled width of 3.0 meters

There has been no low or high assay cutoffs applied to any analytical results as the project is still in the exploration phase. The only intervals that had non-detectable silver (<0.5gm/t) in the interval from 123.7 meters to 198.1 meters reported above are three isolated and scattered sample intervals varying from 1.5 meters to 2.0 meters in length. 

All intervals are reported as drill core widths, and may not represent true width as there has not been enough drilling to delineate the shape of the mineralization at this early stage of wide spaced exploration drilling.

Drill core samples from BD-11-69 to BD-11-70 were analyzed by Acme Analytical Laboratories in Vancouver utilizing the Group 1E analysis. Analytical procedures consist of a 31 element ICP analysis followed by assay for any molybdenum ICP analyses greater than 4000 ppm Mo.

The Company has completed a NI 43-101 positive Preliminary Economic Assessment on the Alaskite Zone (See news release March 11, 2011). Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. A copy of the Report is available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

The Property has an ideal location for operations with established infrastructure including:

  • Highway 16;
  • A natural gas pipeline;
  • a major hydro power transmission line and transformer substation; and
  • is located only 15 kilometers from the CN rail line in Houston, BC.

Bard has a 100% interest in the Property. The Lone Pine Exploration is being conducted under the supervision of Qualified Person, Rick Kemp, P.Geo., Vice-President, Exploration. Mr. Kemp has read and approved the technical content of this news release.
