Endurance Gold Corporation (EDG - TSX.V), during the period May 27 through June 04, 2008, completed a four hole, 627.9 metre diamond drilling program on the BQ Property. The Property, located 25 kilometres northwest of Smithers, covers a large Eocene aged felsic intrusive, emplaced into a sequence of older epiclastic and volcanoclastic sediments. Along the northern flank of the intrusion, the sediments exhibit intense alteration and host stockwork sulphide mineralization, within which previous drilling by Endurance has returned anomalous gold intercepts to 1.0 gpt across 20.0 metres
This year's program tested modest IP and soil geochemical anomalies along the north flank of the large porphyry intrusion, between 2.5 and 4 kilometres east of all previous drilling, but along the same prospective trend. While all holes intersected strongly sericite altered felsic intrusive rocks, in contact with epiclastic and volcanoclastic sediments, no significant zones of mineralization were encountered. The modest IP chargeability anomalies were explained by graphitic argillite horizons within the epiclastic sedimentary package. The company is evaluating all property data in the context of these results, in advance of a decision as to future exploration efforts on the project.
In other news, Endurance has terminated its investor relations contract with Renmark Financial Communications, effective July 31, 2008.
