Sunvest Minerals Corp. (TSX-V: SSS) (“Sunvest Minerals” or the “Company”) reports it has completed an initial site examination and sampling program at its recently acquired Clone project located about 20 kilometers southeast of Stewart in the Golden Triangle region of northwestern British Columbia. Company personnel gained access to the property collecting a total of 11 samples, with several samples taken in freshly exposed areas due to the rapidly receding glaciers. Results are pending from these representative samples. An additional larger volume sample was also collected for future metallurgical work, focused on gold and silver recoveries. Additional studies will be conducted on type and recovery of the cobalt mineralization. Company personnel also located and examined the diamond drill core from previous exploration programs.
A further program is now being organized for the coming week to begin refining the analysis and interpretation of core stored in several locations in Stewart from previous drill programs on the Clone property. Company geologists will conduct selective core logging and re-sampling, and analysis.
The Company is pleased to announce a significant increase in the size of the Clone property by staking. The property has been increased by 47% and now totals 6,788 ha. The new claims comprise 5 claims and 2,168 ha, and covers two Minfile showings, the Golden Wish prospect and the Glory showing. The Glory showing returned a grab sample from a quartz vein assayed 1.15 per cent copper, 24.2 grams per tonne silver (g/t Ag) and silver and 0.38 g/t gold (Au) (Assessment Report # 24745). The Golden Wish prospect assayed 0.785 g/t Au and 1.6 g/t Ag from a quartz vein in Lower Jurassic Hazelton Group sediments. Both prospects have seen little work since the late 1990’s and both have had significant new outcrops exposed due to receding glaciers (Assessment Report #25327).
