"This year's drill program was very successful in outlining the vast potential that the Belcher Islands hold," said Gordon McKinnon, President & CEO of Canadian Orebodies. "We traced the iron mineralization in a north-south direction for 25km at Haig West, 8km at the Haig North Extension, and 10km at Kihl Bay. Additionally we improved our understanding of the Haig South area, where we already had a small inferred resource from last year's program."
Assays for the first 12 holes were released on October 10, 2012 and November 5, 2012, and further assay results will be released when they are received.
