Mr. Ed Kruchkowski reports
EXPLORATION PROGRAMS HAVE STARTED ON SEVERAL PROPERTIES.
Mountain Boy Minerals Ltd. has started surface exploration on several different properties located in the Stewart area of British Columbia in order to define drill targets for further exploration in the third quarter of the 2006 field season.
Work on the MB silver property, located about 22 kilometres north of Stewart, has located the No. 3 vein west and uphill from the High Grade vein that was sporadically explored in the past. In exploration conducted in the 1930s, the No. 3 vein was traced over a strike length of 600 metres and tested over a width from one to three metres. Work in the 1930s yielded over 500 ounces per ton silver (14,136 grams per tonne silver) over widths up to one metre. Bonanza-type mineralization consisting of acanthite (silver sulphide) and stromeyerite (silver-copper sulphide) occurs as veinlets, stringers and lenses in the High Grade and No. 3 vein, giving rise to high silver grades.
The No. 3 and High Grade veins are both located in a rugged portion of the property and both dip to the west. The company plans to drill long holes located uphill and west of the surface expressions to intersect both structures at depth.
E. Kruchkowski, PGeo, a qualified person under National Instrument 43-101, is in charge of the exploration programs on behalf of the companies. Drill core and trench samples are assayed by Assayers Canada of Vancouver, B.C.
