Aben Resources Ltd. (TSXV:ABN) announced that it has entered into an Agreement with Eagle Plains Resources Ltd.(TSXV:EPL) whereby Aben may earn a 100% interest in the Rusty Springs Property, Yukon.
The press release is quoted as saying:
The Rusty Springs property hosts silver-lead-zinc mineralization associated with a 25-40 metre thick replacement horizon within carbonate rocks. Some 35 showings are present within the property area and consist of both high-grade vein occurrences and lower-grade replacement mineralization. The mineralization on the property has been defined over a 6 square kilometre area. Drilling highlights from the property include hole 77-08 (drilled in 1977) which was reported to have returned 1,140 g/t (33.27 oz/t) silver, 4.72 % lead and 2.30 % copper over 37.5 metres (123 feet) from surface to a depth of 37.5 metres. Hole 95-07 (drilled in 1995) was located 1.5 kilometres from hole 77-08 and tested the same stratigraphic interval, returning 517 g/t (15.1 oz/t) silver, 3.0% copper and 1.3% zinc over 15.3 metres from 28.6 metres to 43.9 metres below surface.
