Vancouver, B.C. ... Highland Resources Inc. (the "Company") announces that it has engaged the services of GeoVector Management Services Inc. of Ottawa, Ontario ("GeoVector") to manage the exploration program on the Rickaby Property (the "Property"). The Property is comprised of 88 mineral claims over approximately 18,624 acres located in the Beardmore-Geraldton Belt of the Thunder Bay Mining District, Ontario, an area known to host gold deposits along with hosting base metal occurrences. Interest in the area was sparked by Kodiak Exploration's Hercules gold project located less than 500 meters to the south of the property.
GeoVector, a mineral exploration consulting firm whose principals have over 100 years of cumulative industry experience, provides consulting services to the mineral industry, ranging from grass-roots exploration to advanced pre-development programs.
GeoVector will interpret the results of a recent airborne survey flown over three blocks, where a total of 982-line km. of geophysical data was acquired during the survey. The cost to Highland of the survey over the Property was approximately $190,000. GeoVector will begin field work this week, with the objective of completing a work program this season, the results of which will be integrated with geological, geophysical and geochemical project databases for a complete multidisciplinary approach in the search for large ore deposits.
