Vancouver, British Columbia (FSCwire) - Commerce Resources Corp. (TSXv: CCE, FSE: D7H) (the “Company” or “Commerce”) is pleased to report that, in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 (“NI 43-101”), a Technical Report on the Niobium Claim Group Property has been completed and filed by Saville Resources Inc. (“Saville”). The Technical Report provides a concise overview of the property and its exploration potential and may be accessed through the System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval (SEDAR) at www.sedar.com.
The Niobium Claim Group Property is comprised of a sub-set of the Eldor Property claims and is under the Exploration Earn-in Agreement (the “Agreement”) with Saville, whereby Saville may earn up to a 75% interest, subject to certain terms and conditions including TSX Venture Exchange Approval (see news release dated January 11, 2018).
The Southeast Area is the most advanced prospect on the 26-claim group, with drill intercepts including 0.82% Nb2O5 over 21.9 m and 1.09% Nb2O5 over 5.8 m in drill holes EC10-033 and 040, respectively. These strongly mineralized intercepts have yet to be followed-up and, along with Miranna, are considered high-priority exploration targets by the Company.
The drilling at the Star Trench Area, completed in 2008 and 2010 by the Company, has returned some of the strongest tantalum drill intercepts to date on the Niobium Claim Group Property, including 454 ppm Ta2O5 over 7.8 m and 632 ppm Ta2O5 over 3.8 m in drill hole EC08-025. These drill intercepts, also associated with moderate niobium and strong phosphate mineralization, were returned from relatively shallow depths (
Saville is planning a fall surface program on the claim group, consisting of prospecting and rock sampling, and a ground magnetic survey to further delineate the mineralized horizon. The work will be conducted by Dahrouge Geological Consulting Ltd. with the primary objective of the program to further refine drill hole locations ahead of drilling planned for the first half of 2019.
