JIULIAN RESOURCES INC. (TSX-V: JLR) (“Jiulian” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it is expanding its phase I maiden drill program at its wholly-owned Big Kidd Project (“Big Kidd” or the “Property”), located nine kilometres northeast of Westhaven Venture’s Shovelnose gold Property1.

Six holes have been completed on the BK Breccia target, to a maximum depth of 660 meters (BK-19-004). The copper-gold mineralized hydrothermal breccia intersected by shallow historic drilling appears to increase in intensity at depth. Increasing potassic alteration with up to 10% total sulphides (pyrite+chalcopyrite) has been intersected at depth below the historic drilling.

Scott Dorion, Q.P. and director for Jiulian, commented: “Given what we have observed in these initial drill holes, we are expanding our maiden drill program to better define the extents of what appears to potentially be a widespread alkalic Au-Cu porphyry system.”

Highlights:

  • Drill program immediately expanded to 5,000 meters.
  • Mineralization and alteration appear to increase with depth.
  • Hole BK-19-004, which tested the BK Breccia and Big Brother transition zone, intersected potassic alteration with chalcopyrite stringers near the margins of the Big Brother chargeability anomaly.
  • Hole BK-19-002 was successful in increasing the mineralized zone significantly to the south and at depth. BK-19-005 was successful in increasing the BK Breccia further to the west and to the east at depth, and BK-19-006 is currently underway and to date has increased the size of the mineralized zone to the south and at depth.
  • Drill pad construction is currently underway for hole BK-19-007, which has a designed depth of 700m and will test the Big Brother Zone for the first time ever.
