New Afton sees increase in gold and copper resources
|New Gold Inc. announced this month that it has increased the measured and indicated gold resources at the New Afton C-zone by 24 percent over last year. Measured and indicated copper resources also increased, up 29 percent over last year. "The C-zone Measured and Indicated gold and copper grades compare favourably to the B-zone Measured and Indicated grades of 0.65 grams per tonne gold and 0.91% copper," stated the news release.|
The New Afton mine is approximately 40 kilometers south of WestKam Gold's Bonaparte Gold Project near Kamloops, BC. Exploration at Bonaparte in the fall of 2013 located a large intrusive structure and related anomalies that reinforced Bonaparte's bulk-tonnage, porphyry copper-gold potential. The 2014 exploration program is expected to begin in Q3 2014.
