Rocher Deboule Builds Land Position on IOCG Target
Added May 17th, 2007 – Vancouver, British Columbia
Rocher Deboule Minerals Corp. (RD.H: NEX.V, Pinks: RDBHF.PK) reports additional claims have been acquired contiguous to the west of the existing mining claims partially by purchase of mineral claims (Tenure numbers: 403289, 303290, 514180, 514781 and 514929) for $5,000.00 and 40,000 shares of Rocher Deboule Mineral Corp. and the balance by map staking. The property located 9 kms south of New Hazelton, BC now consists of 8,198.8 hectares (20,931 acres).
The Golden Wonder showings are underlain by somewhat pyritic argillite of the Red Rose formation folded with a trend east of north.
Two shear zones are reported, with most workings on the southern one. The workings consist of a shaft 100 feet deep on top of the knoll, a shallower shaft a few hundred feet west, and a number of open cuts. The shear zone trends north 85 degrees west and dips 80 degrees north and has been traced more than 500 feet. It is up to 3 feet wide, is silicified in places, and contains small quartz stringers. In the shear are lenses of almost pure sulphides, mostly pyrrhotite, but including chalcopyrite, arsenopyrite and pyrite. Kindle (1954, p. 44) reports assays from two ore piles near the main shaft as follows: Gold, 0.20 and 0.46 oz. per ton respectively; silver, 7.25 and 7.63 oz. per ton; copper, 6.50 and 4.69 per cent; nickel, none. Kindle also reports an assay of some sacked ore that shows 0.15 percent tin.
An Assessment Report dated November 6, 2006 by Dwayne McInnes reported assays up to 8% copper, .20 g/t gold and .80 g/t silver.
Property acquired by map staking included the Three Hills prospect west of the Golden Wonder where trenching in 1955 identified up to .30 opt Ag and .61% copper over ten feet (Reported in Bulletin 43 – Geology of the Rocher Deboule Range by A. Sutherland Brown – 1960.)
The Golden Wonder transaction is subject to Regulatory approval.
