Probe intersects new zone at McFauld’s

A previously untested geophysical anomaly at the McFauld’s Lake property in far northern Ontario has been shown to be a massive sulphide body.

Two drill holes advanced by Probe Mines (PRB-V) intersected chalcopyrite mineralization at shallow depths on the anomaly, a conductive zone discovered in an airborne electromagnetic survey. The first hole cut 8 metres of massive sulphides. The second cut 6 metres of massive sulphides about 50 metres vertically below the first intersection.

Assay results have not yet been received; they are expected in two to three weeks. But Probe described the chalcopyrite content of the massive sulphide as “significant.”

Drilling has halted for the winter freeze-up but Probe expects to have field crews return to the property early in 2006. The company plans ground geophysical surveys on several conductive bodies detected in the airborne survey.
