VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - March 10, 2014) - Kaizen Discovery (TSX VENTURE:KZD) announced today that it has filed an independent technical report for the
copper-gold porphyry exploration project in central New South Wales, Australia. The report was prepared by SRK Consulting (Australasia) Pty. Ltd., in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects, and is available on the company's profile on SEDAR and on the Kaizen website at www.kaizendiscovery.com.
The report provides information on the project's history, previous exploration results and exploration potential; it also recommends that Kaizen undertake a further 3-D induced-polarization survey on the property, followed by diamond drilling of targets that are generated. A second-phase drill program is recommended to delineate the extent of any promising mineralization that is encountered.
The technical report has been prepared and filed in satisfaction of an undertaking made to the TSX Venture Exchange in connection with the December 2013 reverse take-over involving Concordia Resource Corp., which created Kaizen.
Fairholme is an early-stage exploration project targeting porphyry-related gold and copper mineralization within the Fairholme Igneous Complex, which forms part of the Macquarie Arc that hosts porphyry copper-gold deposits at Cadia and Northparkes. The project consists of two tenements that cover approximately 172 square kilometres.
The Fairholme Project is being explored by Kaizen under the terms of an earn-in agreement between ASX-listed Clancy Exploration Limited and Kaizen. Kaizen already has earned a 49% interest in the project. The agreement gives Kaizen the right to increase its interest in the project to 65% by funding an additional A$4 million in exploration over the next two years. Kaizen can further increase its stake up to 95% by funding additional, staged programs leading to a feasibility study.
