CALGARY, Feb. 3, 2012 /CNW/ – Boxxer Gold Corp. (TSXV: BXX)(OTC: BXX) (Other-BXXRF) ("Boxxer or the Company") is pleased to provide an update on corporate activities on its now 100% owned Buena Vista copper-gold project in north central Nevada.
|a)||Boxxer has purchased a 20% working interest from its partners in the Buena Vista project, bringing its ownership in the project to 100% ,|
|b)||The additional 20% working interest has been purchased by granting an industry standard one percent (1%) Net Smelter Return ("NSR") to the vendors,|
|c)||Surface exploration of the Buena Vista project is expected to get underway by the end of February, 2012.|
Boxxer's President and CEO, Elmer B. Stewart, explained; "Now that Boxxer owns a 100% working interest in the Buena Vista copper-gold project, our exploration plans for 2012 can commence. The 2012 exploration program includes assessing the iron potential of the project based on the iron deposits that were exploited in this area in the mid-1940's. The primary focus of the 2012 program will be to understand the dimensions, continuity and grade of the 53 zones of copper mineralization located on the property. The data collected to date strongly supports an iron-oxide-copper-gold style of mineralization for this property".
The exploration of the Buena Vista property is expected to get underway in mid to late February, 2012. The work will focus on understanding the relationship between the strong iron carbonate alteration, the 53 zones of copper mineralization exposed on surface and the Titan-24 chargeability targets.
