Drilling Begins at Woodjam

Cariboo Rose Resources (TSX-V: CRB) and Fjordland Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: FEX) have started drilling on the Woodjam gold-copper property, located in south-central British Columbia, five kilometres south of Imperial Metals Corp’s (TSX: III) Mount Polley mine property.

Three holes are planned to test a geophysical induced polarization (IP) anomaly recently discovered by the ongoing 2007 survey program at the property. To date, approximately 100 kilometres of IP and magnetic geophysical surveys have been completed at Woodjam. The surveys have uncovered a new zone 3 kilometres east of the Takom area, called the Southeast Zone, and suggests that a large intrusive/hydrothermal complex measuring approximately five kilometres by six kilometres underlies the almost 30,000 hectare Woodjam property, with at least three large IP chargeability anomalies. Two of these, the Megabuck and Takom Zones, are associated with known copper and gold mineralization while the Southeast Zone has had no previous exploration.

The geophysical survey data dramatically expands the area of interest for exploration on the Woodjam property and suggests a much greater potential for discovery than previously envisioned. Northeasterly trending geologic features have long been considered important in determining the location of large mineralizing systems in the generally northwest trending Quesnel Terrane. This recent data suggests that such a feature is present and is aligned with the known mineralized areas on the property.

The Woodjam property has had approximately 16,000 metres of drilling since 2001, most of which has been in the Megabuck zone. Exploration has demonstrated that the property is prospective for bulk-tonnage gold-copper deposits similar to other porphyry deposits in B.C.’s Quesnel Terrane. Drilling in 2004 included a hole that intersected 378 metres grading 0.81 g/t gold and 0.12% copper and another that intersected 397 metres grading 0.82 g/t gold and 0.12% copper. Drilling in 2006 included a hole with 94 metres grading 0.95 g/t gold and 0.19% copper and another hole with 92 metres grading 1.0 g/t gold and 0.22% copper.
