Jun. 23, 2011 (Marketwire Canada) --
TORONTO, ONTARIO -- Western Troy Capital Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:WRY) (Western Troy or the Company) is pleased to announce results of a 792-metre hole drilled under the waters of Lake Chibougamau in April 2011. The hole was located to intersect a large geophysical anomaly and intersect the down-dip extension of copper, gold and molybdenum mineralization drilled in the 1980s by Flanagan McAdam.
The hole intersected the mineralized zone from 579 metres to 619.6 metres (vertical depth approximately 420 metres). Significant intersections within this zone are:
|579||582.3||3.3||2.4 % copper|
|591.8||593.8||2.0||1.3 g/t gold|
|617.8||619.6||1.8||0.9 % copper|
The hole was drilled at a 45-degree angle from a small island. Widths shown are not necessarily true widths. In the present hole and in past holes on the zone, molybdenum mineralization has been observed and the overall mineralization is considered to be of the porphyry type, common in the Chibougamau region.
Wayne Holmstead, Western Troy's VP of Exploration commented, "This is the deepest the zone has been drilled to date and proves that the mineralization continues to depth with significant grades and is open in all directions. The prospects of discovering additional zones of mineralization in the vicinity are excellent."
The property is located in the prolific Chibougamau mining camp, approximately 4 kilometres east of the Devlin deposit and 3 kilometres northwest of the Corner Bay copper/gold deposits. The property is road and power accessible and is located approximately 20 kilometres south of town of Chibougamau where all services exist including the Copper Rand Milling facility. Western Troy plans a full drill program on the property in the winter of 2012.
