Newmac Resources Inc. (TSX-V: NER) is pleased to update progress in the drilling of the south western region of the Crazy Fox deposit. The current drilling (hole CF 07-41) has penetrated the low angle fault at approximately 390 m (1280 feet) which previously indicated the lower limits of the deposit. The hole has penetrated mineralized intrusive rocks below the fault to a depth of approximately 1021m (3349feet)
The new drilling has intersected a long interval of molybdenite mineralized intrusive. Hole CF 07-41, the second hole of the current program initiated in early October of this year, was designed by David J. Bridge, P.Geo. and W. A. Howell, P.Geo to test the hypothesis that the lower limits to mineralization was a thrust fault and that a drill hole in the south western portion of the known deposit might intersect the lower plate of the thrust within intrusive rock, and that additional mineralized intrusive might occur beneath this fault and extend for an unknown distance to the west and southwest.
Hole CF 07-41 drilled westerly at -70˚. The hole was commenced on October 27 and encountered the thrust fault between 388.1 and 393.2 meters. In addition to increasing molybdenum and tungsten mineralization approaching the thrust fault, the hole penetrated mineralized intrusive immediately below the thrust. The mineralization can be described as both disseminated and stockwork in style, with molybdenite and wolframite occurring as disseminated blebs and streaks and in the selvages of centimeter scale quartz veinlets and smaller fractures trending in several orientations. Occasional veinlets of massive molybdenite up to several centimeters in width have also been noted. In general, the mineralization is greater in CF 07-41 compared to previous holes drilled on the Crazy Fox property.
Hole CF07-41 was drilled to a depth of 1021 m (3349 feet) in continuously mineralized intrusive below the thrust fault. The company planned to continue drilling this hole to 1,250 m but drilling conditions in the hole prevented continuation.
A new hole, CF 07-42 has been collared east of CF 07-41 and is being drilled westerly at –60 degrees on section with Hole CF 07 41. This hole will cross hole CF 07 41 at or above the thrust fault and will penetrate the intrusion at a shallower angle above and west of Hole CF 07 41.
A number of photographs of the mineralization encountered have been posted to the company's website : www.newmacresources.com
The Crazy Fox molybdenum project is located 20 km northwest of the village of Little Fort BC. Molybdenum as been reported and has been the subject of exploration on the Crazy Fox property since 1928, but with renewed effort since the location of high-grade boulders in 2005. One of these boulders, which are up to 50 kg, was sampled in 2006 and returned an analysis of 7.26% Molybdenum and 1.524 grams per tonne Rhenium, Highlighting the potential of the Crazy Fox Deposit.
To date all the known mineralization was found in a cut off portion of the upper part of an intrusive body within and above a basal thrust fault. The lower or main intrusive body was postulated, but never found before drill hole CF07-41. To date, work on the upper part of the intrusive body has encountered mineralization from surface to depths of 300 m, over an area of 450m x 750m . This mineralized area to date has been tested by a total of 38 diamond drill holes totalling approximately 8,000m (28,000 ft). Within these limits there is potential for a deposit size in the order of 275,000,000 tonnes to 300,000,000 tonnes. Limits of the mineralization have not been reached and the deposit is considered 'open' to the North, West and South. As the limits of mineralization are probed and better understood, this potential may increase substantially. This potential quantity and grade are conceptual in nature because there has been insufficient exploration to define a mineral resource, it is uncertain if further exploration will result in the discovery of a mineral resource.
