West Vancouver, British Columbia – July 7, 2015 - Cobra Venture Corporation (the “Company” or “Cobra”) is pleased to announce that Magnum Goldcorp Inc. (“Magnum” – TSX-V: MGI), the Company’s joint property partner for the “LH” gold exploration property (the “LH Property”), has announced that it has completed Phase 1 of its helicopter-supported drill program on the LH Property. The LH Property consists of 19 contiguous crown granted claims and six mineral claims, located approximately 7 km south of Silverton, British Columbia, on the east side of Slocan Lake. Access to the LH Property is via Highway 6 for 8 km south of Silverton and then via Red Mountain Road for 2 km and a four-wheel drive road along Fingland Creek for 5 km.
On July 6, 2015, Magnum announced that as part of its 2015 exploration program, it had completed 11 drill holes at one setup location for a total of approximately 675 metres of BTW core. Magnum indicated that the program was initiated to target high grade gold mineralization previously identified in the LH underground workings. Magnum also reported that a Phase II program (planned for the Fall of 2015) will undertake additional testing of high grade gold mineralization previously identified and associated with the underground workings of the LH Mine and/or along the Ridge Zone.
According to Magnum, core from drill hole LH-15-30 was split in its entirety, with sampling in subsequent holes limited to mineralized intervals having approximately 2% pyrrhotite over greater than 1 metre. Sampling of the remainder of the holes has been postponed to a later date. Drill core has been split at approximately 1 metre intervals. Samples will be submitted to AGAT Laboratories in Burnaby, BC for analysis. Assay results will be reported by Magnum when received and reviewed.
This news release has been reviewed and approved by Rick Walker, P. Geo., who is acting as the Company’s Qualified Person for the LH Property project, in accordance with regulations under NI 43-101.
By option agreement dated September 6, 2012, Magnum was granted an option by International Bethlehem Mining Corp. (TSX-V: IBC) to acquire a 51% interest in the LH Property (the “Option”). Under the Option, Magnum has agreed to incur expenditures on the LH Property totaling $500,000 and to issue 3,000,000 shares to International Bethlehem.
