January 12, 2015 – Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada: Bard Ventures Ltd. (the "Company") announces that it is planning a follow-up exploration program on its Lone Pine Property to test additional gold values on the Quartz Breccia Zone ("QBZ"). Field crews will be mobilized as soon as weather permits to commence additional mapping, sampling and diamond drilling if merited once weather permits.
The Company wishes to provide a final summary of previously announced results of gold analysis covering both historical and recently completed drill holes in the QBZ on its Lone Pine Property (the "Property"). The Company remains pleased and encouraged by the gold results received from drill hole intercepts located on the QBZ. The Property is located 15 kilometers north-northwest of Houston, BC and is situated in the Omineca Mining Division.
Gold analyses were received from selected drill holes in the QBZ. Gold analyses were completed over the entire length of those drill holes located along the western margin of the QBZ, where polymetallic copper-silver-molybdenum mineralization was intersected over extensive intervals in six drill holes including BDQ-08-02 to BDQ-08-05 and BD-11-69 and BD-11-70. Along the eastern margin of the QBZ four drill holes (BD-07-02, BD-07-06 and BD-11-68) intersected broad intervals of near surface porphyry style molybdenum-copper mineralization; gold analysis was completed across angled drill hole BDQ-08-01. Elevated and anomalous gold results were received in all drill holes along the western margin of the QBZ with best results reporting up to 0.54 grams per ton gold over 188.27 meters.
A summary of significant drill hole results for gold are highlighted in the table below. All intervals are reported as drill core widths.
|Drill Hole||From (m)||To (m)||Width (m)||Gold (g/t)|
Elevated and anomalous gold assay results over significant widths from drill holes located along the western edge of the QBZ, where polymetallic copper-silver-molybdenum mineralization were intersected, are considered significant.
The Company completed a NI 43-101 positive Preliminary Economic Assessment on the Alaskite Zone (see News Release March 11, 2011). This PEA does not include any resource from the QBZ. 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:
Bard has earned a 100% interest in the Property under the terms of an option agreement (News release dated July 12, 2012).
