Blackheath Resources Inc. (TSXV:BHR,FWB:04B) announced results from its Phase 2 drilling program at the Covas Tungsten Project in Portugal. Highlights include 3.05 metres of 1.26% WO3, including 1.05 metres of 2.07% WO3 starting at a depth of 12.75 metres at Muito Seco and 3.25 metres of 0.19% WO3, including 1.25 metres of 0.38% WO3 starting at a depth of 82.55 metres at Telheira.
As quoted in the press release:
Fourteen diamond drill holes, totaling 1,183 metres, were drilled in five different target areas: Muito Seco, Lapa Grande, Telheira, Castelo and a new zone Cerdeirinha/Muito Seco. Step out drill holes varied from 50 to 550 metres and averaged over 200 metres in distance from previously known mineralization areas. Results from the first and second phase drilling programs indicate that there is further potential for extension at all five target areas, and new geological interpretations from the recent drilling also indicate potential vectors towards further high grade tungsten zones.
Blackheath Resources President & CEO, James Robertson, said:
Over 90% of the drill holes intercepted tungsten-bearing skarn, which is very encouraging. This brings us one step closer to our goal of completing a NI 43-101 resource estimate at Covas, and further drilling will be required to determine the extent of the tungsten mineralized skarn zones. The Phase 3 drill program is scheduled for later this year.
