HudBay Discovers New Gold Zone at Lalor [2009-01-09] TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 9, 2009) - HudBay Minerals Inc. (TSX:HBM) has discovered a new gold zone and significantly advanced its exploration program at its 100% owned Lalor volcanic massive sulphide (VMS) deposit in the Flin Flon Greenstone Belt.
Geological modelling and interpretation is underway to understand the benefit, distribution, and exploration potential of additional gold mineralization, which occurs in an adjacent and separate zone that could offer Lalor a distinct mining horizon with principal credits derived from gold mining. подробнее... www.marketwire.com
Freewest and Rockport Intersect 8.24 g/t Gold Over 5.00 Metres in Deeper Drilling of East Zone at Clarence Stream, New Brunswick [2009-01-09] HIGHLIGHTS:
- Significant gold mineralization intersected at the East zone over a 200-metre strike length; Mineralization is open at depth and along strike to the east, clearly indicating potential for significant resource expansion.
- 2008 drill program successfully extended Proximal Deposit trend to a minimum strike length of 3.6 kilometres.
- The 40 holes completed since the last mineral resource update have expanded the limits of mineralization, yielding significant gold results including 7.11 g/t over 5.00 metres, 17.25 g/t over 5.00 metres, 9.71 g/t over 5.00 metres and 8.24 g/t over 5.00 metres in drill holes 273, 290, 295 and 208 respectively.
- Rockport is funding an ongoing exploration and resource expansion drill program targeted to increase the property's mineral resource to the 1 million-ounce-plus range. подробнее... www.marketwire.com
Latin American Minerals: Mechanical Trenching Reports 7 gpt Gold over 8.5 Metres at Paso Yobai, Paraguay [2009-01-08] TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 8, 2009) - Latin American Minerals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:LAT) (the 'Company' or 'Latin American') reports that mechanical trenching across the Discovery Zone on the Paso Yobai Gold Trend in Paraguay has exposed the gold-bearing zone in all trenches, locally containing coarse visible gold.
The Paso Yobai Gold Trend hosting the Discovery Zone has been traced by airborne and ground magnetic surveys along strike for 7 kilometres, and has been outlined by a large regional gold soil anomaly measuring 8.5 kilometres long by 2 kilometres wide (Inset in Figure 1 of this press release). подробнее... www.marketwire.com
Huge Undersea 'Wall' Discovered [2009-01-05] A giant rock formation resembling a city wall has been discovered under the Taiwan Strait.The 220m stretch of basalt rock was found by biodiversity researcher Jeng Ming-hsiou.He said it was likely to have been formed by a volcanic eruption up to 1,800 years ago.
Geological Predictions for 2009 [Green Gabbro] [2008-12-31] Geotripper always comes up with the best memes [Oh, wait, looks like Brian at Clastic Detritus might have priority on this one - sorry Brian!] He's made some psychic predictions for 2009. But I think his crystal ball must have some inclusions that are scattering away his mind-energy vibrational tones, because this is what I saw in the melted cheese on my pizza last night:
Episodic tremor and slip on the Cascadia subduction zone occurring early this spring will trigger the long-dreaded subduction zone megathrust event. подробнее... scienceblogs.com
