International Ranger to Begin Drilling on Whiskey Gap Project
International Ranger says the Joint Venture has received final approval on the drilling plan for the Whiskey Gap Project. The Whiskey Gap property, located in southern Alberta, is contiguous with North American Gems 200,000 acre Del Bonita property and underlain by a series of fluvial sandstones of Cretaceous age, thought to be analogous to sandstones in parts of Wyoming and Texas that host significant roll front uranium deposits.
The whiskey Gap Project is a Joint Venture between North American Gem (NAG) and International Ranger Corp., whereby NAG can earn a 70% interest by spending $1,250,000 over 3 years. An additional 10% can be earned by taking the project to feasibility.
Preliminary sampling of domestic water sources by Ranger has defined several very strong radon and uranium anomalies, that compare favourably with published radon studies conducted in proximity to sandstone hosted uranium ore bodies in south Texas. The text of the International Ranger geological report on the Whiskey Gap property by G.S. Hartley may be viewed at http://www.internationalranger.com/Prospect.pdf.
The Joint Venture has contracted HC Drilling Inc. of Richmond, British Columbia to mobilize and commence diamond drilling to test approximately fifteen recently identified targets. Drilling should commence no later than November 15.
This Exploration project is being conducted under the direction of
Glenn .S. Hartley P. Geol. in accordance with the regulations of National Instrument 43-101.
