Vancouver, B.C. - Tower Resources Ltd. has commenced its 2013 field program at its flagship JD gold (Au) - silver (Ag) property located in the Toodoggone gold district of north central British Columbia. The program will consist of up to 2,000 meters of exploration drilling targeting several gold - silver occurrences primarily near the Finn zone and newly identified targets.
The JD Property is comprised of over 15,000 hectares located approximately 50 kilometres north of Aurico Gold Inc's past producing Kemess Mine.
The program is designed to test areas peripheral to the Finn zone where the mineralizing system appears to be open and largely un-tested, with the goal to establish continuity of gold mineralization along the mapped geological contact that is known to host Finn zone mineralization. The Finn zone was a primary focus during the 2012 drill program where Tower intersected near surface gold and silver mineralization hosted in a shallow dipping volcaniclastic unit and yielded an intersection of 21.5 meters of 4.92 g/t (grams per tonne) Au with 53.99 g/t Ag in drill hole 12-JD-002 (see Tower's August 29th, 2012 press release).
In addition, a focused IP (Induced Polarization) geophysical survey will be conducted on a footprint of approximately 3 by 1.5 kilometers aimed at investigating silicified and mineralized areas that are potentially buried beneath cover. The IP survey is also designed to investigate the potential heat source for epithermal related mineralization. Lines will be run stratigraphically below and south of the Finn zone where a large multi-element soil anomaly and a coincident magnetic anomaly exists.
President Mark Vanry states "We are excited at the prospect of expanding beyond the core of the known Finn Zone mineralization and testing and multiple new exploration targets at the JD Project during this season's exploration program."
