Aurizon Reports Encouraging Rare Earth Drilling Results At Kipawa
Aurizon Mines Ltd. (TSX: ARZ; NYSE Alternext U.S.: AZK) is pleased to report results from its 2008 drilling program, at its 100 percent owned Kipawa Gold-Uranium-Rare Earth project, in north-western Quebec, Canada.The Kipawa project is an early stage exploration project located approximately 100 kilometres south of Rouyn-Noranda, in the Temiskaming region. It was initially acquired by Aurizon for its gold potential on the basis of a government regional stream sediment survey. Exploration programs performed in 2007 and 2008 included regional till sampling, prospecting, geophysics and soil geochemistry. These programs lead to the discovery of rare earth elements (REE) mineralization.
The first drilling program recently completed at Kipawa by Aurizon, totalled 681 metres in four (4) drill holes with the objective of testing the Snake rare earth elements target, located in the western part of the Kipawa southern claim block. These holes intersected a broad rare earth mineralized envelope within a minimum true thickness averaging 61 to 104 metres. Results are currently pending for twenty-three (23) assays in Hole KW-08-03. Detailed results are reported in the table attached to this news release.
