American Bonanza Gold Corp

Past Work Programs

During 2007 and 2008, a total of 59 exploration holes were drilled, with a combined length of 17,490 meters (57,374 feet). Several targets returned strong gold anomalies, with the southern margin of the D-Zone, the South Pit zone and the Southwest zone showing the best results to date.

The South Pit Zone, the Southwest Zone, areas down-dip from the main planned mining areas which generally remain open to expansion, and several other earlier stage exploration targets all have the potential to significantly extend the mine life beyond current gold resources and improve overall economic returns. The potential for these gold zones, which lie outside of the current mineral reserves, to extend the mine life at Copperstone will be evaluated as mine development efforts continue.
