2008 ICP Trenching Results To Be Re-assayed For Copper, And By Fire Assay For Gold And Silver
VANCOUVER, April 8 – Sego Resources reports that the 3200 metre excavator trenching program on its Miner Mountain Project has been in progress for three weeks. The trenching and reclamation is being managed by the Upper Similkameen Indian Band and its highly qualified personnel. Mapping and sampling is being conducted by Sean Daly, P.Geo. and Curt Kauss and consulting is being provided by Vic Preto, Ph.D., P.Eng. The program involves the deepening of numerous old bulldozer trenches, mapping and sampling. The trenching to date, currently in what has been known as the Granby Zone, has reached well mineralized bedrock, most of which was not reached by bulldozer trenching. The company has results for the first 100 1-metre chip samples which have been analyzed at Acme Analytical Laboratories Ltd. for 40 elements by the ICP method. A number of the samples run (greater than) 10,000 ppm copper and (greater than) 2 ppm gold which is the upper limit of accuracy for ICP. For this reason Sego Resources Inc. has instructed Acme Analytical Laboratories Ltd. to re-assay all of the Copper highs for total copper, and the Gold and Silver highs by fire assay for gold and silver. This will ensure proper accuracy for the release of news. The Miner Mountain Project is a Porphyry Copper Gold Project near Princeton, BC in the Traditional Territory of the Upper Similkameen Indian Band. Sego has an MOU with the Upper Similkameen Band. The Miner Mountain property is 2400 hectares in size. Sego Resources has funding in place for a one million dollar exploration program in 2008. (Note News Release dated January 2, 2008)
