VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - May 25, 2006) - Journey Resources Corp. ("Journey" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:JNY) is pleased to announce that it has commenced an exploration program on the Musgrove Creek Deposit.
Journey is currently earning a 100% interest in and to certain mineral claims comprising the Musgrove Creek Project. The Musgrove Creek Property consists of 77 contiguous, unpatented mining claims located in the Cobalt Mining District of Lemhi County, approximately 25 miles from Salmon, Idaho and covers nearly 1,500 acres of gentle to steep terrain that is road accessible.
The property is underlain by quartzite, siltites and phyllites of the Precambrian age Apple Creek Formation, situated along the Trans-Challis Fault System, a prominent northeast trending fault zone, which is host to numerous gold deposits. A 2004 soil geochemical survey identified gold anomalies with associated indicator minerals to the northwest of the present mineral resource.
The Musgrove deposit has been intersected over a strike length of 400 metres, a width of 110 metres and to a depth of 150 metres. The NI 43-101 Inferred Mineral Resource estimate at the Musgrove deposit is 8 million tonnes at 1.22g/t Au (0.036 oz/t) at a gold cut-off: 0.8 g/t (0.023 ounces per English ton). This is equivalent to 9,761 kg (313,822 oz) of gold at zero dilution (D. Makepeace, P.Eng, 2004). Previous exploration and the current resource evaluation indicate that the Musgrove deposit is open along strike in both directions and "down-the-dip".
A success contingent, phase-type exploration program has been recommended in the Technical Report dated May 15, 2006, which is available at www.sedar.com. The program will cost approximately CDN$450,000 and includes geological mapping and soil sampling of the prospective mineralized zone, trenching and approximately 10,000 feet of reverse circulation drilling.
Mr. Jack Bal, President of Journey, commented: "We are very excited about commencing the work program on the Musgrove Gold Project, and in particular drilling the gold anomalies discovered to the northwest of the present mineral resource."
Journey Resources Corp. is a mineral-exploration resource company trading on the TSX Venture Exchange (Symbol : JNY). The Company is currently exploring three advanced exploration-stage projects; the Vianey Mine Silver Project, the Musgrove Gold Project and the Empire Mine Project. The Vianey Mine Project consists of concessions totaling 5,022 hectares in Guerrero State west of Mexico City, Mexico. The Musgrove Project is a prospect for a disseminated gold bulk-tonnage surface project similar to the Beartrack Mine, a nearby former gold producer. The Empire Mine Project is a poly-metallic skarn deposit containing copper, zinc, gold and silver ores, and is located in the Alder Creek Mining District in Custer County, Idaho.
