Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada – Barrian Mining Corp. (the “Company” or “Barrian”) (BARI: TSX-V) is pleased to provide an operational update at its flagship Bolo Gold Property (“Bolo”) in Nevada.
Barrian has recently completed its induced polarization and resistivity (IP/RES) survey at Bolo. The survey comprised a total of approximately 11 line-km over 9 lines targeting the “Mine Fault” and other mineralized structures that host the Uncle Sam, South Mine Fault and Northern Extension mineralized zones. The Company expects to receive final inverted data from the geophysical contractor, Las Vegas Nevada-based, KLM Geoscience LLC within the next week, and will issue further news following data interpretation by APEX Geoscience LTD (“APEX”) and Barrian Director and qualified person Kris Raffle, P.Geo. The data will provide additional drill positioning and target locations for the upcoming 2019 exploration program.
Maximilian Sali, CEO comments, “Barrian remains on schedule and on budget in preparation for our summer drill program of around 1800 metres where previous drill results have shown mineralization from surface. We are currently awaiting dates from the landowner to provide accommodations to the drill team on site which will save significant costs instead of commuting back and forth from Tonopah in terms of time, fuel and hotel expenses. With the geophysics completed we look forward to releasing the results of this program in the following week followed by our drilling program schedule.”
Drill Permits and Water Rights
All necessary permits have been confirmed to be in good standing. The Company is currently relying on an approved United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Forest Service Plan of Operations (PoO) for Mining Activities issued September 27, 2012 to Allegiant Gold (U.S.) Ltd., the optionor of Bolo. The current plan allows for drilling of up to 3 reverse-circulation (RC) or core holes on up to 79 drill sites, in addition to the construction up to 7.6 km of new temporary access roads (approx. 7.6 hectares total disturbance), and improving 1.3 km if existing roads (Phase I). The approved plan also allows for further road construction in subsequent phases of up to 25 km and up to 4 drill staging areas (approx. 28 hectares total disturbance) over an estimated project life of a maximum of 10 years. It is a condition of the permit that all project related disturbances be reclaimed at the end of the project life.
In addition to being fully permitted for the upcoming drill program Barrian has signed a contract with a nearby property owner and water rights holder to provide water / water hauling services sufficient for all planned 2019 drilling activities.
