Vancouver, Canada (ots/PRNewswire) - Ross River Minerals Inc.
(TSX-V: RRM) (the "Company") is pleased to announce results from its
Induced Polarity (IP) and magnetometric geophysical surveys over new
grid lines east and west of known porphyry copper mineralization. A
total of 73.04 line-kilometres of IP and magnetometer surveys were
carried out, including 56.16 line-kilometres east and 16.88
line-kilometres west of the 2004 grid. IP geophysical anomalies
were detected in the Minitas and Vado Hondo areas (see press releases
dated April 25, May 9 and August 11, 2005).
The IP surveys with a pole-dipole array and a station spacing of
50 metres resulted in IP readings at six depth intervals,
corresponding to a depth of penetration of approximately 150 metres.
To obtain a better understanding of the depth extent of the IP
anomalies identified in the 2004 and 2005 IP programs, the Company
also re-surveyed 7.54 line- kilometres to a depth of penetration of
12 levels, or approximately 300 metres. The extra depth levels in
each case helped to define more clearly the nature and trend of the
chargeability anomalies and associated conductivity/resistivity
The results of the 2004 and 2005 IP surveys clearly indicate a
broad arc-shaped zone of chargeability anomalies approximately
2.7 by 3.5 kilometres in dimension. This zone extends from the Cerro
Colorado area north through the Langosta area and west to the Vado
Hondo area. This area contains porphyry mineralization with
coincident soil and lithogeochemical anomalies for copper,
molybdenum, silver and gold. The Minitas area (2.5 kms x 1.0 kms) is
characterized by chargeability anomalies, soil anomalies and
mineralization similar to those of Cerro Colorado approximately two
kilometres to the east.
The re-survey to 12 depth levels showed that the IP anomalies do
extend at least 300 metres from surface and become stronger with
depth. The positive results from the program have clearly defined
drill targets for a drill program scheduled for October.
