Centurion Outlines 2007 Thor-Odin Drill Program
|The company has partially completed the program recommended by B. Price, P.Geo. for the Thor Odin claims situated at Harrison Lake BC (see Report filed on Sedar).|
Six holes were drilled on the property for a total of: 481.29 metres
Hole #1 intersected slightly anomalous gold (up to 29ppb Au) and silver (up to 2.3 ppm Ag) in a pyritic red jasper breccia.
Hole #2 was on the Main Road Showing and cut a thick interval of pyritic and siliceous alteration with scattered geochemically anomalous silver, copper, silver, lead and zinc within a sheared and brecciated tuff (up to 3.4 ppm Ag). Between 21.32m and 22.90m a pyrite-quartz zone assayed 4.8 g/tonne Ag over 1.5m associated with zinc levels up to 4120 ppm Zn.
Holes #3, #4, and #5 tested the main A-1 vein structure, a quartz-carbonate epithermal vein with gold-silver values at surface. The porphyritic (agglomeratic) andesite contains small ragged jasper fragments. Hole #3 did not intersect any anomalous values. Hole #4 intersected several zones of abundant quartz-carbonate veinlets which contain elevated silver values. The top of Hole #4 from 3.96m to 13.00m averages 1.47 g/tonne Ag. (Note: 34.285 grams/tonne = 1 oz/ton). A narrow siliceous zone 1 meter wide at 50 m-51 m assays 44.3 g/tonne Ag. Hole 5 did not intercept any anomalous gold, silver or base metal values.
Hole #6 was situated on the zinc showing and intersected pyrite cemented breccia developed mainly in black argillaceous siltstone. Pyrite content is about 25 to 35% overall. The section at the top of the hole from 1.52m to 9.50m averaged 8 g/tonne silver and 0.56% zinc, with strongly anomalous arsenic, antimony, copper and lead.
Although mineralized and geochemically anomalous intercepts were cut by drilling in all of the zones tested, no economic intercepts were obtained. Based upon the above results, the company, in consultation with its qualified professionals, has decided not to undertake any further work on the Thor Odin property at the present time. The company intends to pursue other mineral exploration opportunities should they become available.
