Drilling continues to outline deposit

Drilling continues to outline deposit at Sun Group Zeolite project

The Canadian Mining Company Inc. reported recently that under the supervision of the company’s Mr. John Beck; Hard Rock Drilling has been operating 24 hours a day at the company’s Sun Group Zeolite Project. Mr. Ray Paquette, CEO was also on site to collaborate with the team. Over the course of the past week, roads have been built, pits dug, drilling equipment mobilized and water and power sourced.

During drilling, core samples were inspected and delivered to Canadian Mining’s core shack for logging and splitting in preparation for shipping to Maxxam Analytical, Burnaby for whole-rock analysis (WRA) and cation exchange capacity (CEC).  Founded over 40 years ago, Maxxam has developed into Canada’s leader in analytical services.

While undertaking core inspections, Mr. John Beck, Mine Engineer, conducted two field tests.  The first test was a visual inspection for the evidence of zeolitic materials. The second test was an ammonia field test conducted on core samples to identify the adsorption qualities of the zeolite over a twenty four hour period. The second test showed the zeolite was very effective in reducing the ammonia content. This provides Canadian Mining with supported evidence of quality zeolitic material.

To benefit from the previous 1994 and 2001 drill reports, Canadian Mining has twin-drilled hole 94-13 which will be used as a comparison to the prior drill logs.

This had been a very exciting and busy month for Canadian Mining. Having a compliant 43-101 Resource Report on the Sun Group Zeolite Project will not only establish the size and grade of the zeolite deposit but brings the company closer to certifying its zeolite for use by municipalities, organic growers, vineyards, composting, animal waste treatment and radioactive containment both nationally and internationally.
