Mr. Larry W. Reaugh, President & Chief Executive Officer of Rocher Deboule Minerals Corp. (TSX.V: RD; OTC US: RDBHF) (“Rocher Deboule” or the “Company”) is pleased to report the Company has completed 5 BQTW diamond drill holes (474 m total depth) on the Lonnie Niobium Rare Earth Project located 7 km east of the Community of Manson Creek, British Columbia.
Two holes were drilled at -50° through the carbonatite, two were vertical holes from the same location into the carbonatite and one hole was drilled in the opposite direction into the hanging wall which visually returned approximately 48 meters of biotite-muscovite-phlogopite schist containing approximately 15% 1-1.5 centimeter sub-hedral red garnets. The company will contract to have a recovery test conducted as there is a robust demand for this type of garnets in the sandblasting industry.
The other four drill holes encountered from 40-100 meters of carbonatite. Assays will be focused on niobium, titanium, zirconium, lanthanum, neodymium, and related REE’s.
The Lonnie carbonatite zone has been traced by surface trenching for a length of approximately 650 meters with widths up to 50 meters grading 0.20% Nb2O5 (source: MINFILE number 093N 012). The carbonatite zone trends 120 degrees and dips approximately 60 degrees southwest. A zone in the centre of the property averages 0.3 per cent niobium (Nb2O5) across a width of 7.6 meters and a length of 240 meters (Open File 1987-17).
Assays will be reported when they are received.
