MAZAMA COPPER PROJECT DRILLING PERMIT FILED
Vancouver, BC – August 22, 2013: Blue River Resources Ltd. ( TSX.V: BXR ) ("Blue River" or “the Company”) announces that on August 15 2013, it filed the Plan of Operations for exploration and drilling on the Mazama Copper Project.
The exploration plan calls for up to 2500 meters of diamond drilling, as well as geological mapping and sampling.
The diamond drilling program is designed to confirm previously delineated areas of copper mineralization on the Mazama Project. New potential areas of copper mineralization will also be mapped and sampled as part of the upcoming exploration program.
The Company has staked additional claims at the Mazama Copper Project, increasing the project’s size by 35% and now totals about 800 hectares. The new claims cover areas that are deemed to be highly prospective for new zones of copper mineralization.
The Company has completed a LIDAR survey, topographic mapping and orthophotography, and has obtained a magnetometer survey conducted in 1996, in addition to a 3D IP survey previously conducted on the Mazama Property in 2007.
The Company commissioned a re-analysis of the 2007 3D IP survey, in conjunction with the results of the magnetometer survey.
Quintana Minerals Corp., a subsidiary of Quintana Petroleum of Houston, Texas, previously calculated an historical resource* of 149 million tons grading 0.36% copper and 0.01% molybdenum on the Mazama project.
*A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the historical estimate as current mineral resources. Blue River is not treating the historical estimate as current mineral resources.
The Company has contracted Dorado Drilling for a 2500 meter diamond drill program on the Mazama Copper Project and has also contracted Discovery Consultants for geological consulting.
The Mazama Copper project is located in Okanogan County, WA, approximately 25 km south of the Canada/US border in North Central Washington, 143 km northeast of Seattle and 17 km northeast of the town of Winthrop.
