Newmac Resources Inc. (TSX-V: NER) is pleased to announce that it has commenced a second round of diamond drilling on the Bluff property located 180 kilometres west of the city of Williams Lake, BC. At the Bluff property, which is adjacent to the Newmac Property, also owned by Newmac Resources Ltd., wide spread occurrences of copper mineralized quartz tourmaline breccia rubble were discovered in 2006.
In December 2006 a survey of approximately 35 line kilometers of induced polarization was completed in the area where this mineralization was encountered. A number of strong induced polarization anomalies (with chargeabilities sometimes in excess of 30 mv/V) were identified, some with high contrast magnetic anomalies indicating a number of linear features. The objective of the current drill program is to complete six additional drill holes allowing for broader targeting of mineralization including the quartz tourmaline style. An initial drill program of eight diamond drill holes totalling 3,950 feet (1200 metres) was completed in March. Three of these holes were abandoned before reaching bedrock in deep overburden. The new holes being drilled will test other targets left untested because of winter conditions in the first drill program. Results of the two programs will be released once completed and compiled.
