Boxxer Announces Update on DOK Drilling Program

CALGARY, AB--(Marketwired - September 17, 2014) -


Boxxer Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE: BXX) (PINKSHEETS: BXXRF) (the "Company", or "Boxxer") is pleased to provide an update on the second diamond drill hole completed on the DOK copper-gold-molybdenum-silver project located in northwest BC. Continental Precious Minerals ("Continental") pursuant to an option agreement has the right to earn up to a 75% interest in the DOK Property if certain conditions are met (see Press Release on April 14, 2014). The 2014 diamond drilling program consisting of 2 holes totalling 834.9m has been completed. Highlights of the second diamond drill hole (DDH) DOK-2014-02 are set out below:


  • Diamond drill hole (DDH) DOK-2104-02, with a core length of 424.9m, intersected visible occurrences of chalcopyrite mineralization from a core depth of 36.6m to 389.5m.
  • Trace bornite was noted to occur in the core from 57.3m to 110.3m and from 389.5m to 424.9m (end of hole).
  • The mineralization observed in DDH DOK-2014-02 is hosted in alternating strongly potassic and phyllic altered volcanics of the Stuhini Group and multiple quartz monzonite intrusives.
  • Hydrothermal biotite and gypsum veining as well as disseminated and fracture controlled pyrite and magnetite occur in variable concentration throughout the core, and
  • Assays for the drill core from DDH DOK-2014-01are expected to be received within the next few weeks.

Mr. Riley, President of Boxxer stated that "The reported visible copper mineralization hosted in strong potassic and phyllic alteration from this drill hole is encouraging as it suggests continuity to the mineralization and alteration observed in DDH DOK-2014-01 (see Press Release on August 18, 2014). The location of the DOK property between the large copper deposits to the south and the active exploration currently underway north of the Stikine River combined with the large dimensions of the surface mineralization, geochemistry, alteration, and geophysical signatures support the presence of a porphyry copper system on the DOK project. The assays for the core samples from the two drill holes will be required before any assessment of the significance of the reported mineralization in both drill holes can be completed."

DDH DOK-2014-02 was designed to test a >10 mRad portion of a chargeability signature outlined by a Quantec Titan-24 DCIP-MT geophysical survey completed in 2012. DDH DOK-2014-01 tested the >20 mRad portion of the same chargeability signature approximately 400m along strike.

Drill hole DDH DOK-2014-02 was an inclined, HQ diameter hole completed to a core length of 424.9m, and intersected variable concentrations of visible chalcopyrite (and malachite) with two intervals containing trace bornite mineralization. The copper mineralization occurs as disseminations and in thin veinlets in variably potassic and phyllic altered volcanic rocks and quartz monzonite intrusives.

Abundant gypsum as well as hydrothermal biotite veining and matrix-replacement occurs in several sections of the core. Variable concentrations of pyrite and magnetite were also noted throughout the drill hole. Several late dioritic dykes and a thin hydrothermal breccia were intersected by the drill hole.

The reader is cautioned that visible chalcopyrite and bornite mineralization does not necessarily equate to significant concentrations of copper and there is no assurance that the assay results of the samples from this drill hole will yield significant copper grades.
