Freeport at Spanish Mountain Gold Property
FREEPORT RESOURCES INC. (TSX-V: FRI) is pleased to report on field work last month at its Spanish Mountain Gold property in BC. In July, Freeport conducted soil and stream sampling across the full width of the property as a follow-up to the airborne geophysical survey last fall by Skygold Ventures/Wildrose Resources (SKV-WRS). Assay results are pending. In the course of the work, drill holes by SKV-WRS were observed on access roads up to 54 metres (177 feet) of Freeport's west boundary. Outcrops of oxidized pyrite-rich shales with quartz veining were seen near Spanish Lake, with fragments of similar pyritic rocks in scree of road cuts on Freeport's claims also sent for assay. Spanish Mountain is a key gold exploration project in the Cariboo -- a historic gold placer district well-known for rich finds at Cedar and Spanish Creeks in the 1920's.

Freeport Finds Molybdenite in Q's Adit No. 1
FREEPORT RESOURCES INC. is very pleased to announce that recent field work has verified molybdenite in samples from both adits and in core from various drill holes. This is of significance as molybdenite (MoS2) had previously been reported only in Adit No. 2, approximately 279 metres (915 ft) to the east of Adit No.1. Because of a large-scale potassic alteration zone and the presence of molybdenite, the Q is now being evaluated as a possible molybdenum (Mo) porphyry. Preliminary metallurgical testing of Adit No. 2 samples by Dr. Bern Klein of BC Mining Research Ltd. resulted in a successful initial molybdenite concentrate (see Dec.15/05 release).
