VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - March 7, 2014) - Declan Resources Inc. ("Declan" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:LAN) is pleased to provide an update on its work program at Firebag River.
Analysis of historical drill core and cuttings, at the ERCB lab, Calgary in February 2014, revealed the continuity of high grade frac sand at, or near, surface in regions throughout the property. To date, 1500m of core along with 2000m of core cutting have been analyzed with additional holes still available for review. Data from the first visit revealed high silica content in and around the perceived deposit and further delineated Declan's target of interest.
With this analysis, Declan will now turn to the final stage of Frac Sand testing of the samples that were submitted to Lorring Laboratories ltd of Calgary, Alta by Dahrouge geological in December 2013. Samples will go through a crush test, after which, all results will be released to the public.
Wayne Tisdale states, "We're encouraged by the progress we're making on the project at Firebag River. Approval of Athabasca Minerals surface mineral license, Northwest of Firebag River, is a positive step for the Frac Sand industry in Alberta. With the development of shale gas in Alberta/ B.C the demand for localized sand, at lower transportation costs will continue to accelerate."
Situated along the Saskatchewan/Alberta border, approximately 100 kilometers Northeast of Fort McMurray, the Firebag River property is ideally situated for partnerships. An important advantage of the location is the significantly reduced transportation cost. With the current growth in shale gas exploration frac sand has become a valuable commodity.
Mr. Garry Clark, a director of Declan, is the "Qualified Person" as defined in National Instrument 43-101, who has reviewed and approved the technical content in this news release.
