– but the biggest opportunity is in the area of industrial supply-chain businesses. “Many communities in northern B.C. have small and medium-sized businesses whose goods and services are in increasing demand. These include electricians, earth-moving companies, construction contractors, paving companies, gravel pit operators, road building contractors, logging operations and trucking companies. Many of these businesses are sole-proprietor enterprises whose owners are ready to either retire or expand their companies. “At the BES Business Opportunities in Northern B.C. event, you will hear about opportunities to buy out, or buy into, businesses with good growth potential.” The event will run from 4-6 p.m. and cost $49.
Colorado Resources reports good results in northwest
Colorado Resources says it has ‘significant’ gold results from drilling on its property in northwestern B.C. "Although we started drilling only seven short weeks ago, we already have our second set of assay results from Inel drillholes 9-30,” said Adam Travis, president and CEO of Colorada Resoures, in a press release. “They have clearly demonstrated some very significant high grade gold results up to 5.3 ounces/tonne gold over 1.0 m. We are also seeing broader intervals (20 to 99 m) returning > 1 g/t Au attesting to the robust nature of the mineralized system. We have met this year's work commitment and given our continued success we have elected to expand our drill program and should be at the 51 per cent earn in level expenditures by the end of this field season more than a year ahead of schedule.” Colorado Resources is drilling at the Inel and Khyber Zones on the KSP Property, near the Red Chris Mine. The property is under option from Seabridge Gold Inc. whereby Colorado has the right to earn an 80 per cent interest. The expanded and accelerated program will focus on follow up of the current drill results at Inel and also commence drilling on the Khyber target located two kilometres to the south of Inel. “There's plenty of room at Inel for more mineralization as our first pass drilling has tested only about 13 per cent of this impressive soil anomaly on a very broad pattern,” said Travis. “This will also be our first drilling in the Khyber area this year and our approach to testing this zone is based on the knowledge gained from our drilling at Inel.”
The Inel and Khyber Target Zones represent an area of approximately 10 square kilometres of the approximately 300 square kilometre KSP property. Field crews have also been busy expanding soil coverage and examining/sampling out-crops to the north of Inel and other prospective areas of this large district under Colorado's control.
