Skyharbour Resources Ltd. (Skyharbour) announces that the second phase of the 2005 winter/spring drill program has now been completed on the St Paul's Bay region of its McKenzie Island gold property in Red Lake, northwestern Ontario. The McKenzie Island property is held jointly by Skyharbour (TSX.V: SYH 20%) and by Cypress Development Corp. (TSX.V: CYP 80%). A total of 14 reconnaissance drill holes (approx. 3300 metres) were completed in a 2 phase diamond drill program with the objective of exploring a district scale west-northwest trending geological zone known as the "D2" Structure.
Significant zones of gold mineralization have been discovered during the 2 phase drill program. The gold mineralization is hosted within a pervasively altered quartz-sericite-chlorite-tourmaline alteration of the "Dome Stock" and contains quartz-sulphide veining and silica flooding within a strongly sericite altered felsic intrusive. Sulphhides are generally less than 2% but locally contain up to 10%. Discrete quartz veinlets occur over 10 cm widths and commonly contain visible gold within these zones. The identified sulphides include pyrite, sphalerite, calcopyrite, and arsenopyrite.
The initial phases of drilling carried out on the property have delineated a gold bearing structure of alteration approximately 100 metres wide and 1000 metres long. This new zone remains open in all directions for further exploration. As previously reported, reconnaissance drill hole M05-7 intersected a 10 metre wide zone of gold mineralization from 114.7 metres to 124.7 metres down hole. Assays from the centre of the zone returned 2.1 g/t Au over 5.5 metres. All of the gold mineralization interceptions lie within a large (+1000 metres by +150 metres) envelope of quartz-sericite-chlorite alteration, which appears to be controlled by a district scale WNW trending deformation zone known as the "D2"zone.
All core samples were shipped to TSL Laboratories in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan for assaying.
Phase II Analytical Results:
|Hole #||From (m)||To (m)||Length (m)||Gold g/t|
Skyharbour and Cypress Development Corp. are encouraged with the assay results to date. The companies are, at this time, in the process of conducting a detailed surface rock sampling program on all of their McKenzie Island property, including the St Paul's Bay region. The companies will be conducting multi element assaying consisting of whole rock analysis. The objective is to identify the potential of large-scale alteration systems within the Dome Stock.
