Spider, Kwg And Freewest Receive Preliminary Aerotem2 Report On Freewest Option Property Mcfauld’s Lake Area, Northern Ontario25 Feb 2008
Toronto, Canada – February 25, 2008 – KWG Resources Inc. (TSXV-KWG), Spider Resources Inc. (TSXV-SPQ) and Freewest Resources Canada Inc. (TSXV-FWR) are pleased to announce the receipt of an Interim Report on their Freewest Option property (the “Property”), located approximately 15 kilometres southwest of the McFaulds Lake volcanogenic massive sulphide (“VMS”) occurrences of KWG and Spider and approximately 3.6 kilometres northeast of Noront Resources Ltd.’s Eagle One Magmatic Massive Sulphide (“MMS”) discovery in the James Bay Lowlands region of Northern Ontario. This report was prepared by Scott Hogg & Associates Ltd., dated February 2008 and provides a technical review of a Helicopter-Borne Electromagnetic and Magnetic survey carried out by Aeroquest Ltd., under contract to Billiken Management Services Inc., of Toronto Ontario. Billiken also advises that a diamond drill contract with Cabo Drilling Corp., has recently been negotiated, on behalf of the joint venture and that preparation for diamond drilling is underway.
Nine separate SW-NE trending magnetically and electromagnetically rendered anomalies have been identified within the limits of the property, as described within the interim report, most of which warrant additional follow-up. Of the nine conductors identified, six have been interpreted as having a NW dip, one has a near vertical dip and the other two are broader in nature. The latter two may be attributable to surface conductivity although there is some coincidence with magnetic patterns reflective of the underlying bedrock geology, so bedrock source for the conductance cannot be ruled out.
Previous exploration work on the property included a diamond drill program resulting in the discovery of a layered chromite bearing, nickel and platinum group element (PGE) enriched peridotite. A previous press release dated February 4, 2008 describes the analytical results. This chrome-PGE-nickel discovery was the first of its kind in the McFauld’s Lake area of the Sachigo Greenstone Belt. The host peridotite contains variable amounts of magnetite as disseminations and seams and elicits a strong magnetic signature. The magnetic high has dimensions of 400 metres by 400 metres and due to both the dimensions, and the peridoitite setting similarity to Eagle One, this occurrence has become a very attractive exploration target for additional work directed at chrome-PGE-nickel mineralization. The initial focus of the drilling program will be to further investigate this Cr-PGE-Ni occurrence.
The terms of the agreement with Freewest are disclosed in earlier press releases (see press release December 19, 2005, as well press release dated February 4, 2008). As stated earlier the initial field crew arrived on site in late January and commenced re-identification of the claim boundaries prior to starting a detail line-cutting program. A property wide grid with 200 meter line spacing is currently being established, initially focussing on the western portion of the property covering the peridotite in the vicinity of 2006 drill hole FW-06-03, where the grid will be detailed at 100 meter spaced lines. Line-cutting has progressed over this area and the geophysical operators will soon be starting the ground surveys that will include horizontal loop electromagnetic (HLEM), along with Magnetic and VLF electromagnetic ground surveying. Drilling is still scheduled to start during February, assuming all goes well with the geophysical surveying. The initial holes will test the layered peridotite and explore this exciting occurrence for its MMS potential. Interim maps produced from the recent Aerotem2 airborne survey have been reviewed and are currently being used to continue the planning of exploration for the remainder of the property. At present, eight other anomalies are apparent. The field operations and eventual drilling are currently under the auspices of Billiken Management Services Inc.
Mousseau Tremblay, Ph.D., P.Geo, Chairman of KWG Resources Inc. and a Qualified Person as such term is defined under National Instrument 43-101, has reviewed and verified the technical information contained in this press release and has approved the contents of this press release.
