Everett Resources Ltd. is pleased to announce the start of the initial 2011 diamond drilling program at its Menarik polymetallic property, located in the James Bay area of the province of Quebec. A minimum of 2,000 meters will be drilled in this program, to test multiple targets, as the property hosts stratiform chromite horizons and magmatic massive sulphides in Menarik ultramafic intrusion, nickel-copper concentrations in the altered zones, gold targets and mineralized felsic volcanic on the edges. All the core samples will be prepared and submitted to ALS-Chemex in Val-d’Or, Quebec for analysis.Coal crusher
Everett can earn a 50-per-cent interest in the Menarik property held by Pro-Or Inc. (Ressources Minieres) by issuing 4.5 million common shares to Pro-Or Inc. over two years and incurring $5-million in exploration and development work on the property over a period of three years.
“We are extremely pleased to have started the drill program at Menarik, and we’re very fortunate to have DJM Drilling Inc., of Rouyn-Noranda, for the spring drilling program. Everett will be very systematic and aggressive in their approach to exploration on the property, and the drill program underway will be a very good test of the size of the system,” commented Mike Waggett, President.Coal mill
