Exciting Potential Compels Asia Now To Fast Track Drill Program

Asia Now Resources (NOW - TSX V)

Asia Now is stepping up by several notches its program on one of its China properties with the news it has gone to three from one drilling rig on its Beiya North property. This adds 2 thousand more metres of drilling to the planned 2 thousand that is underway already. This is scheduled to be completed by the end of this year.

Why is the company so motivated to speed up the program? Hole BYN-ZK3 intersected a 130 metre-thick gold and base-metal zone 1,200 metres from its BYN-ZK1 hole with strong gold and silver sampling. If the new step-out and in-fill holes being drilled show similar sampling, Asia Now could have over a kilometer of a thick gold and base-metal zone. Now the accelerated drilling will test the area north of this area. Should the geochemical sampling be correct, Beiya North has the potential to host a major new discovery.
