TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Aug. 6, 2013) - Bison Gold Resources Inc. ("Bison Gold" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:BGE) provides exploration update, announces financing and AGM results.
Bison Gold provides exploration update
A Ph.D. thesis project based at the University of Waterloo was initiated in 2012 on the Ogama-Rockland gold deposit and the surrounding area in the southeastern part of the Rice Lake greenstone belt, southeast Manitoba, Canada.
The project is jointly funded by Bison Gold Resources Inc., Manitoba Geological Survey, the University of Waterloo and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada.
Exploration Field work in the 2013 field season started on May 27 and will continue until mid August. Mapping in the Ogama-Rockland gold deposit area will be continued and expanded to mapping the Central Manitoba Deposit area. The work performed during the summer of 2013 will:
||investigate the structural history of the area;
||differentiate different phases of the Ross River pluton and other possible unrelated intrusions present and establish their cross-cutting relationships; and
||investigate the relative age relationships among the Ross River Pluton, quartz-feldspar porphyry dikes, gold-bearing quartz veins, as well as brittle-ductile shear zones and brittle shear fractures and the host structures for gold mineralization on the property.
The main goal is of the Ph. D. theses is to constrain the geological factors controlling gold mineralization on Bison's Central Manitoba Property and thus to aid current and future exploration through gold exploration modelling in this highly prospective area.
