Entrée Gold Inc. reported that the company has received positive test results indicating the presence of copper on two of its mining properties in Nevada. The company has decided to conduct additional exploration activities in these areas.
Entrée Gold Inc. conducted assay tests in the Yerington district, where the company has interests in the Blackjack and Roulette properties.
At the Blackjack property, Entrée Gold Inc. drilled seven exploration holes totaling 2,820 meters. The results of the assay tests indicate the presence of oxide copper mineralization on the property. Entrée Gold Inc. believes that this is a continuation of the Blue Hill copper trend that is present on a contiguous property. The company also found a new zone of copper mineralization on the eastern end of the Blackjack property.
Entrée Gold Inc. said that the Blackjack property is subject to an option agreement with Honey Badger Exploration Inc., a Canadian exploration and production company.
At the Roulette property, Entrée Gold Inc. drilled two test holes and found a porphyry copper system at one of the test areas. The second test hole failed to achieve its target depth due to heavy faulting.
Entrée Gold Inc. said that the Roulette property is subject to an option agreement with Bronco Creek Exploration Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Eurasian Minerals Inc.
