Happy Creek Minerals Ltd. (TSXV:HPY) released results from preliminary metallurgical work conducted on its 100% owned Fox tungsten property.
According to the company’s press release:
Trenching and/or drilling in three areas that span a distance of three kilometres have discovered high tungsten grades over considerable thickness that are at or near surface. Drill highlights from this new discovery include 7.35 metres of 1.22% tungsten (W03), 19.4 metres of 0.82% tungsten, 11.0 metres of 0.80% tungsten, 20.0 metres of 0.63% tungsten, 24.7 metres of 0.68% tungsten and 22.0 metres of 0.76% tungsten at the RC zone. One kilometer to the south at the BN prospect, F12-27 returned three intervals: 4.1 metres of 1.78% tungsten, 14.8 metres of 4.0% tungsten and 24.0 metres of 0.79% tungsten including 5.8 metres of 2.01% tungsten (Refer to Press Release dated November 19, 2012 and September 9, 2013). Looking selectively at very high grades, to date 28 drill intervals have returned a weighted average of 3.0 metres grading 2.33% tungsten.
David Blann, P.Eng, President and CEO of Happy Creek commented:
We are pleased to see this very positive response from an initial, simple gravity concentration circuit and the opportunity for a by-product with zinc, precious metals and indium. With these tests being successful, we can look forward to continue advancing this new, top tier tungsten discovery
