Jul. 26, 2011 (TheNewswire.ca) --
July 26, 2011 - Vancouver, B.C. Ocean Park Ventures Corp. (TSXV:OCP) (OOTC:OCPFF) ("Ocean Park" or the "Company")(TSX-V: OCP) is pleased to announce that it has commenced diamond drilling at the Trapper gold project in northern British Columbia.
Drilling has started with one drill testing the Main zone, an historically defined 2+ kilometre by 250+ metre wide strong gold-in-soil and bedrock anomaly that has returned results as high as 19 g/t gold. A second drill is being mobilized to test new targets identified by the ongoing ground-based Induced Polarization geophysical survey, geological mapping/prospecting and soil geochemical program. Positive preliminary exploration results have warranted an expansion of the work program to include an airborne geophysical survey across the entire Trapper property and broadening of regional geological coverage.
Preliminary assay results from 21 grab samples taken along the core of a 3+ kilometre iron-carbonate altered trend that includes the Main zone, have returned an average of 1.12 g/t gold, with a high value of 10.25 g/t gold. These results increase the footprint of gold-rich mineralization by over a kilometre of strike.
The Phase-1 Trapper project has a $4.9M exploration budget, with 10,000 metres of metres of diamond drilling planned. The project is under Joint Venture agreement between Ocean Park Ventures and Constantine Metal Resources Ltd. (TSXV:CEM) (TSX-V: CEM).
Mr. Chris Taylor, M.Sc. P.Geo, is a Senior Geologist with Ocean Park and is the Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101, who supervised the preparation of the above information.
