Freeport Reports on Molybdenum Potential of the Q claims
Freeport Resources is pleased to provide an update on its Q claims (16 units) in the Cariboo region of B.C. The Q covers a large fluorite deposit where over 22,000 metres of diamond drilling took place twenty years ago, with 126 surface, 9 underground holes and 2 adits completed by Eaglet Mines. That work identified eight distinct flat-lying lenticular zones mineralized with fluorite and accessory silver, molybdenum, and lead, varying in thickness from 3 to 30 metres, with an average of 8 metres. In 1984, Eaglet Mines published mineral reserve estimates of 24,000,000 tonnes of fluorite, averaging 11.5% CaF2 with silver, molybdenum and lead by-products. These historical estimates have not been verified by Freeport.
