West Vancouver, British Columbia – December 2, 2009 – Columbia Yukon Explorations Inc. (the “Company” or “Columbia Yukon”) is pleased to report on the 2009 exploration results for its “Storie” Property molybdenum deposit located near Cassiar, British Columbia.
Columbia Yukon’s 2009 exploration work program (as summarized in the Company’s news release of November 27, 2009) included detailed geological mapping and prospecting of the southern portions of the Storie molybdenum deposit within the existing pit boundary. This area was previously classified as waste rock due to minimal exploration data. The 2009 exploration program was successful in delineating the north, east and west contacts of a distinctive quartz feldspar porphyry geological unit (the “QFP Unit”). Within the QFP Unit outcrop, coarsely disseminated and globular molybdenite appears to be best developed along the geological contacts. The QFP Unit, which was also intersected at depth in the NI 43-101 reserve definition drilling of 2007 & 2008 is roughly circular in plan view and may represent a cylindrical stock or pipe which the Company believes to be the potential feeder into the multi-stage layered Storie molybdenum deposit above. As well, one traverse up the canyon near the eastern contact of the stock resulted in a new significant discovery of coarsely disseminated molybdenite within the QFP Unit at a point elevationally 150 metres beneath all known mineralization on the Storie Property to date.
“We are extremely pleased with the results from our 2009 exploration program and the Company believes that the new discoveries could have a significant blue sky potential for the project and could both increase the already large deposit size and additionally lead to the discovery of a high grade feeder zone” said Ronald Coombes, CEO & President of Columbia Yukon.
A genetic model of the new potential discoveries can be viewed at the Company’s website at www.columbiayukon.com.
This news release has been reviewed and approved by Robert Middleton, P.Eng., who is acting as Qualified Person for the Company’s Storie Property project in accordance with regulations under NI 43-101.
