"We are very bullish on the Bass River concession and the potential for a major Cobalt and/or base metals discovery. We have previously announced our intention to drill our Castlereigh prospect in Bass River and we expect to finalize our drilling contract shortly in this respect. The Quarry Project as we call this newly acquired ground will test a known Iron deposit, identified by Chilean Metals Advisor Mick Sharry. The Quarry was the site of six core holes and a 1000 tonne bulk sample which were completed in the late 80's. The bulk sample had noted interesting Cobalt results by the department of Natural Resources. It will be our intention to assay the old drill cores as an immediate next exploration step. Then we will contract a Helicopter to complete a detailed Mag and radiometrics survey. This will be followed by an IP survey over the areas defined by interpretation of the the magnetics and radiometrics to be high priority areas of interest for Cobalt.
The historic drill cores will be sampled will be sent in for Assay as soon as we can arrange access to the historic core and we will report these results when received. We will move quickly to complete the Airborne Mag and Radiometrics survey which we expect will happen in June. We will then move as quickly as possible to obtain land access agreements, cut lines and conduct the IP survey. Following that drill targets will be defined by integrating all available data and a drill program will be proposed.
We look forward to keeping you updated as we progress these quality prospects in a timely and professional manner. ." commented CMX CEO Terry Lynch
