Phase Two Drilling Begins at Two Time Zone
February 6, 2007, Bridgewater, NS / Vancouver, BC. - Silver Spruce Resources Inc. (TSXV: SSE) and Universal Uranium Ltd. (TSXV: UUL) are pleased to announce that diamond drilling has resumed on the Two Time Zone located on the CMBNW claim block east of Snegamook Lake in Labrador.
The fully winterized camp was expanded and reactivated early last week. Drilling began on Friday, February 2 with a total of 1,500 m of drilling scheduled for this second phase program. The first phase of drilling, completed in December 2006, consisted of 812 m.
"I am pleased to announce the start of this second phase of drilling on the Two Time Zone," stated Lloyd Hillier, President and CEO of Silver Spruce. "With our initial discovery of a wide zone of uranium in December, we are excited to aggressively follow-up with a more comprehensive drill program. Our first phase provided us with new information that we can use and build upon during this second phase."
The first phase of exploration drilling defined a wide zone of low grade uranium mineralization in three of five holes with the best mineralization located in DDH CMB-06-3, which gave 82.4 m of 0.021% uranium oxide (U3O8) from 83.5 m to 165.9 m, including two higher grade zones of 0.13% U3O8 over 1.6 m from 100.8 m to 102.4 m and 0.13% U3O8 over 1.4 m from 106.1 m to 107.5 m (see press release dated January 30, 2007). The host for the mineralization is a brecciated/fractured felsic intrusive, carrying extensive chlorite, carbonate and hematite alteration.
The zone extends over a 175 m length from Line 1+25 N to Line 0+50 S, remaining open to the south and possibly to the north. The second phase drill program will test the zone along strike and to depth. Results are expected by late March.
This release has been approved by Peter Dimmell, P.Geo., Vice President of Exploration, Silver Spruce Resources Inc., who is a Qualified Person (QP) as defined in National Instrument 43-101.
