Bard Uncovers Additional Mineralization on the Grouse Mountain Property

Bard Uncovers Additional Mineralization on the Grouse Mountain Property


Bard Ventures Ltd. (“Bard” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the completion of the 2010 field program on the Grouse Mountain Property (the “Property”). The property is located approximately 15km north-northwest of Houston, BC and is situated immediately to the north of Bard’s Lone Pine Molybdenum Project in the Omineca Mining Division.

The Company has completed a detailed soil sampling program on the Property covering the northern half of the 2009 soil sampling grid where elevated and anomalous copper, lead, zinc and silver geochemical trends were identified and traced intermittently over a distance up to 1000m in length. The attitude of the anomalies closely parallel the orientation of historical mineralized zones identified immediately to the north of the 2009 soil grid central to the Copper Mine Lake area.

The 2010 field program re-established the northern half of the 2009 soil sampling grid over which prospecting, mapping and infill soil sampling was completed. Soil samples were collected at 25m intervals with sample lines established at 100m separation. A total of 402 samples were collected and submitted for analysis to Acme Analytical Laboratories in Vancouver.

The results of the combined 2009/2010 soil sampling programs clearly define several elevated and anomalous multi element copper, lead, zinc and silver geochemical trends associated with the projected southwesterly extension of the Rainstorm, Creek, Copper Crown and Ruby mineralized zones. Several new anomalous geochemical trends were also identified to the north of the Rainstorm Zone, these zones are open to extension to the North. Prospecting and mapping across the sampling grid has located historical trench, adit and drill hole sites. A trench grab sample located along the projected trace of the Copper Crown mineralized trend returned 1.0% Cu, 17.75% Zn and 110.5gm Ag.

Historical VLF-EM geophysical surveys have proved successful in tracing the historical mineralized structures identified to date and is therefore recommended to locate and prioritize future drill hole targets.

Soil samples were collected from the B-Horizon at an average depth of 20-40cm. The sampled material was placed in a standard kraft paper soil bag and delivered to Acme Analytical Laboratories in Vancouver, British Columbia for analysis utilizing the Acme 1DX 36 element ICP-MS analytical process.

Bard is earning a 100% interest in the Property under the terms of an option agreement (see News Release dated May 9, 2007). The Grouse Mountain exploration work is being conducted under the supervision of Qualified Person Rick Kemp, P.Geo., Vice-President-Exploration of Bard.
