Optimum Ventures (OPV) has now started work on its Harry Property in Northwest British Columbia.

The British Columbia-based mineral explorer’s property is located in the province’s Golden Triangle and in an area hosting numerous high-grade gold occurrences and discoveries.

Drilling is planned to test several new zones discovered earlier this year during prospecting, mapping and, in some instances, shallow surface drilling.

Priority is being given to the Swann, BR, Ursula, Ursula South, Saw Cut, and GS zones, which all saw previous grab and surface sampling.

Early results from that sampling indicated gold and silver values occur in every zone.

The initial drilling campaign is planned and financed for 2,500 metres over multiple zones of gold-silver bearing poly-metallic sulphide mineralization. Those zones were defined from surface prospecting coupled with surface exposure.

The company has an option agreement with Teuton Resources to acquire up to 80-per-cent interest in the Harry and Outland Silver Bar properties located near Stewart, British Columbia.

Optimum Ventures is unchanged, trading at $0.29 at 10:40 a.m. ET.
