Aben Resources (TSX-V:ABN) said its first drill hole at its Forrest Kerr project showed multiple high-grade zones including 62.4 g/t gold over 6.0m within 38.7 g/t gold over 10.0m.

The junior was up 50 percent today to 30.5 cents.

"The high-grade gold and base metal values in the first hole of the 2018 drill program have far exceeded our expectations and confirm the presence of a robust and strong mineralizing system at the recently discovered North Boundary Zone," said Jim Pettit, President and CEO of Aben Resources in a news release.

"We are now looking at an area that extends 230m south to the historic high-grade Noranda drill hole from 1991 and although the geology is complex we believe more drilling will delineate additional high-grade mineralization."
