Bard Ventures 2009 Drilling Commences Lone Pine Molybdenum Project

Bard VenturesĀ is pleased to announce that it has started the 2009 diamond drilling on its Lone Pine Molybdenum Property. The initial 2009 phase of compilation of all historic exploration work, geological mapping, soil and rock sampling has been completed and after interpretation of these results the Company has decided to commence a diamond drill program of up to 10,000 meters. The Property is located approximately 15 kilometers north-northwest of Houston, BC, and is situated in the Omineca Mining Division.

Lone Pine Molybdenum Property:

The 2009 geological mapping and soil sampling identified the location of the favorable geological units including new areas of Alaskite and granites hosting visible molybdenum mineralization. The Alaskite intrusive is the main focus of the Lone Pine Property and in drilling it has been interpreted as being the most favorable lithology for molybdenum mineralization and is the host to the existing resource. During the field program all of the historical showings were re-located which comprised of old pits and trenches where molybdenum mineralization had been located All of the known showings located during the mapping program are located within the zone of anomalous Moybdenum in soils and it will be these areas that will be tested in the upcoming diamond drill program.

The Lone Pine Property currently has a calculated measured and indicated resource at a 0.04% Mo cutoff of 110,340,000 tonnes grading 0.083%Mo containing 201,733,000 in-situ pounds of molybdenum. (Please refer to News Release dated January 22, 2009 for full resource disclosure).

The Property has an ideal location for operations with established infrastructure including:

  • Highway 16;
  • a natural gas pipeline;
  • a major hydro power transmission line and transformer sub-station; and
  • is located only 15 kilometers from the CN rail line in Houston, BC.
