Ashburton Ventures (TSXV:ABR,FWB:ARB) reported that the drilling program at its Deep Creek Project, located 112 kilometers north of Elko, Nevada has been extended.
As quoted in the press release:
Over 3,000 meters of drilling has been completed on the property, with all core split and submitted for assay with results expected in the coming weeks. Based on features observed in the core to date, an additional drill hole at Catscat Canyon was approved and is presently underway. Catscat Canyon was the focus of drilling by Ashburton in 2010, where several plus-one meter intercepts of roughly one gram per tonne gold assays were demonstrated (see news release, January 18th, 2010).
An additional target is also being considered for drilling, following a review of historical data obtained through an agreement with Newmont Mining Corp.
