Freeport Receives Fluorspar Results for Q Project (Eaglet)

Freeport Resources Inc. is pleased to announce encouraging preliminary assays received for its Q fluorspar project in central BC. Analyses indicate a similar range of CaF2 values to those used to calculate the historical fluorspar resource (Eaglet Mines, 1984), with about a quarter at 10% CaF2 or above, with values up to 23%. Of about 500 pulp samples submitted for analysis, representing the full extent of Adit 2 -- some 1200 feet in length, results from about half have been received. The samples were analyzed for fluorine, and converted to CaF2. The new results are significant as no fluorspar data was previously available for the Adit, which contains several fluorspar zones included in historical non NI43-101 estimates. It permits a much better understanding of the 3D spatial distribution of fluorspar and grades in the Adit and the overall deposit, in comparison to original results from vertical diamond drill holes only. Several hundred of the samples were also analyzed for 55 elements on an exploratory basis.
