Soil sample results & trench assays-Minnie Moore


Kettle River Resources Ltd. has received results from a fall 2007 soil sampling program at the Minnie Moore showing where several new targets for follow-up in 2008 have been outlined.  A grid was established to cover an area 500 meters east-west by 1250 meters north-south, roughly centered on the Minnie Moore discovery outcrop.  There was no previous soil geochemical coverage over much of this area, which is underlain by the favorable Triassic Brooklyn stratigraphy.  Soil samples were collected at 12.5 meter intervals along 50 meter spaced, east-west trending grid lines.  In total, 991 soil samples were collected and submitted to Acme Analytical Laboratory for gold and a multi-element ICP suite.

The Minnie Moore zone has a modest multi-element (Ag-Au-As-Se-Sb-Hg-Pb-Cu-Mo +/- Zn) soil geochemical signature of limited surface extent.  Several anomalies, with similar geochemical signatures and of similar or larger magnitude and extent, were defined by the soil survey.  The fall 2007 drill program was completed prior to receiving the soil geochemical results and as a result, drilling did not test the areas of best geochemical response from the soil survey.  The strongest and largest soil anomaly is centred approximately 400 meters southwest of the Minnie Moore trenches, trends parallel to the Minnie Moore vein and measures approximately 300 meters by 100 meters in size.   Several small outcrops of vuggy quartz veining in limestone, similar to the Minnie Moore discovery outcrop, were noted in this area during the 2007 field program, but no significant results were returned from samples collected.  This area was not tested by the 2007 drill program.  This area, as well as other similarly untested geochemical anomalies on the Minnie Moore grid, will be tested by trenching (where topography allows) and by diamond drilling during 2008.  The Battle zone, 7 kilometers to the southwest of the Minnie Moore zone, will also be drilled in 2008.

4,000M drill program in 2008 & Minnie Moore Drill results


Kettle River Resources Ltd. (“the Company”) is pleased to announce that bids have been received for a minimum 4000 meter diamond drill program on the Greenwood area properties in southern B.C. and that a signed drill contract will be in place shortly.  Drilling will begin in May, 2008 and will test the Minnie Moore and Battle zones.  Lengthy delays in obtaining analytical results during 2007 hampered the Company’s exploration efforts and planning.  An arrangement has been made with a different ISO 9001 certified analytical laboratory for 2008, which the Company believes will result in more timely receipt of sample results.


The Company has received the results from the 10 hole, 1485 meter diamond drill program at the Minnie Moore zone, completed during the fall of 2007.   Several zones of silicification, quartz-carbonate veining and argillic or advanced argillic alteration were intersected in the drilling.  Analytical results failed to return values of similar silver and gold tenor to those from trenching.  The best result, in hole MM07-5, was a 2 meter interval which returned 66.0 g/t Ag (1.9 oz/t Ag) and 0.2 g/t Au (0.005 oz/t Au).

Work commences in Greenwood Area

Work starts on Greenwood Area Properties

Kettle River Resources Ltd. (the "Company") is pleased to announce that the 2008 work program has commenced on the company's 100% owned Greenwood Area properties in southern B.C. Additional grid work and soil geochemistry has been completed at the Minnie Moore epithermal silver-gold zone, to extend the coverage beyond the limits of the 2007 survey. More Core Diamond Drilling Services Ltd. of Stewart, B.C. has been contracted for a 4,000 meter diamond drill program, equipment is being mobilized and drilling is expected to begin in mid-May. Drilling will test the Minnie Moore and Battle Zone showings, as well as other high priority targets on the property. Follow-up work, including geological mapping and historic data review and compilation is underway to bring these other high priority targets to a drill-ready stage, for testing during the 2008 program.   

The Minnie Moore showing is a limestone-hosted epithermal siliceous breccia zone that was discovered by the company during 2007.  Initial testing included excavator trenching, soil geochemistry, a ground magnetometer survey and preliminary diamond drilling (10 holes totalling 1,485 meters).  Trenching exposed the vein, intermittently over a strike length of 40 meters and returned values, across the width of the vein, including 1,469 grams per tonne (g/t) Ag (42.9 ounces per ton (oz/t) Ag) and 3.95 g/t Au (0.12 oz/t Au) over 4.2 meters.   Complex faulting and dyking, lack of rock exposure, and depth of overburden all hamper exploration at the Minnie Moore showing.  Although initial drill results failed to return values of similar silver and gold tenor to those from trenching, surface vein exposures, trace element geochemistry, and strength and extent of alteration seen in drill core, all suggest that the Minnie Moore vein is part of a large epithermal system which warrants aggressive exploration.

DO27 - 18.2 million carats diamond resource report

KRR announces that Joint Venture partner has recieved Canadian NI-43-101-compliant report

Kettle River Resources Ltd. (the “Company”) announces that Joint Venture partner, Peregrine Diamonds Ltd., the operator, has reported to DHK Diamonds Inc. that they have received a Canadian NI-43-101-compliant report. DHK Diamonds Inc. (“DHK”) a privately owned corporation, (Dentonia Resources Ltd. 43.37%, Horseshoe Gold Mining Inc. 13.26% and Kettle River Resources Ltd. 43.37%) owns a participating 10.78% interest in the project.

“Mr. Eric Friedland, Chief Executive Officer, and Mr. Brooke Clements, President of Peregrine Diamonds Ltd. ("Peregrine" or "the Company") are pleased to report a Canadian NI-43-101-compliant indicated mineral resource of 18.2 million carats in 19.5 million tonnes of kimberlite for the nine hectare DO-27 kimberlite. The estimated grade of the indicated resource is 94 carats per hundred tonnes ("cpht"). The resource estimate was prepared by AMEC Americas Ltd. ("AMEC"), an internationally recognized engineering firm with extensive experience in evaluating advanced diamond projects. An additional 6.5-8.5 million tonnes of kimberlite below the indicated resource was classified as a potential mineral deposit and DO-27 remains open at depth.

W.Purcell - DO27 DHK article

Kettle River et al. miss cash call

Street Wire See Street Wire (C-KRR) Kettle River Resources Ltd
by Will Purcell

Kettle River Resources Ltd., Dentonia Resources Ltd. and Horseshoe Gold Mining Inc. elected not to contribute to the DO-27 project in the Northwest Territories last month. The three companies are partners in DHK Diamonds Inc., which once owned the entire project. A series of option deals diluted DHK's interest over the years, and its share shrank further when its three owners missed a large cash call from the current operator, Peregrine Diamonds Ltd. The latest cash call was much smaller, just $212,112 and Kettle River's president, Ellen Clements, said accepting the minimal dilution made sense in today's tough market. Nevertheless, she remains optimistic the DO-27 pipe, once called Tli Kwi Cho, will become a profitable diamond mine....

Minnie Moore drill results, Battle Zone pending

Drill program completed on Greenwood Area Properties

July 18, 2008:  Kettle River Resources Ltd. has completed its spring-summer diamond drill program on the company's wholly owned Greenwood area properties.  Fourteen NQ2 drill holes, totalling 2551 meters, were drilled.  Core logging and sampling is complete, and all samples have been submitted for analyses.

Five holes were drilled at the Minnie Moore showing, to test the at-depth extension of the Minnie Moore zone beneath the thick post-mineral sill that was delineated by the 2007 work program.  Drilling also tested a strong multi-element soil geochemical anomaly southwest of the main showing.  Drilling has confirmed the structural complexity of the Minnie Moore area, and has added valuable information to assist in unraveling these complexities.  At least three separate post-mineral fault sets, often with accompanying post-mineral dykes and sills, are known to occur...
