VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Berkwood Resources Ltd.(TSX-V SYMBOL: BKR) ("Berkwood") is pleased to announce plans for the 2012 exploration season at its 100% owned Prospect Valley Gold Property near Merritt, British Columbia, Canada.
The planned 2012 exploration program at Prospect Valley will consist of data compilation, prospecting, soil sampling, mapping and diamond drilling. This work will aim to both extend the NI43‑101 Mineral Resources in the North and South Discovery Zones and carry out exploration on some of the many other known gold prospects on the property, that have seen minimal exploration to date. The 2012 exploration program has been submitted to government authorities for permitting which is expected soon.
Berkwood's geological team has produced a set of detailed geophysical models, outlining the North Discovery and South Discovery Zones. The models are based on the recently reproduced Initial Mineral Resource Estimate on the Prospect Valley Gold Property (see Berkwood news release dated January 25, 2012 for details). The maps can be viewed on the Berkwood Resources website by clicking here.
President and Director, Brian Buchanan said, "We are very pleased with the work that our geological team is carrying out in preparation for our 2012 exploration program at Prospect Valley. We are excited to get back to work and continue proving up the great potential of the property."
George Gorzynski, P.Eng. a Director of Berkwood and a Qualified Person under the definition of Canadian National Instrument 43-101, is responsible for the technical information in this new release.
