Bard Begins Drilling on Lone Pine Molybdenum-Copper-Silver Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 19, 2011) - Bard Ventures Ltd. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:CBS)(FRANKFURT:BVU) is pleased to announce that the drill program on its Lone Pine Property (the "Property") has commenced. The Property is located 15 kilometers north-northwest of Houston, BC and is situated in the Omineca Mining Division.

The drill program is planned to further evaluate exceptional drill hole results received from all three Zones on the Property, being the Alaskite Zone, the Quartz Breccia Zone and the 61 Zone. A recently completed review of the Quartz Breccia Zone (News release March 4, 2011) identified two areas requiring additional follow up where drill hole intercepts over drilled widths returned 0.052% molybdenum ("Mo") over 142.0 meters and near surface copper ("Cu") and Silver ("Ag") mineralization reporting 0.09% Cu over 147.0 meters and 25.47 grams per ton Ag over 154.0 meters (BDQ-08-03). A second area of interest in the Quartz Breccia Zone intersected near surface Mo/Cu mineralization over drilled widths of 0.044% Mo/442.6m (BD-07-02) and 0.05% Cu/236.0m (BDQ-08-01).

Over limit pulp sample re-analysis was performed at Acme Analytical Laboratories in Vancouver utilizing the Group G6 methodology for silver analysis comprising a lead collection fire assay fusion with a gravimetric finish and Group 7TD for copper analysis utilizing a 4-acid Digestion ICP-ES Finish.

The Company has completed a NI 43-101 positive Preliminary Economic Assessment on the Alaskite Zone (See news release March 11, 2011). Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. A copy of the Report is available on SEDAR at

The Property has an ideal location for operations with established infrastructure including:

  • Highway 16;
  • a natural gas pipeline;
  • a major hydro power transmission line and transformer substation; and
  • is located only 15 kilometers from the CN rail line in Houston, BC.

Bard is earning a 100% interest in the Property under the terms of an option agreement (News release dated September 15, 2006). The Lone Pine Exploration is being conducted under the supervision of Qualified Person Rick Kemp, P.Geo., Vice President, Exploration.
