Gold exploration to resume southwest of Ketchikan

The CBR Gold Corp. said gold exploration will resume early next month at the Niblack project on Prince of Wales Island.

Derek Iwanaka, manager of investor relations for CBR Gold, says equipment and supplies have been barged to the Moira Sound site about 30 miles of southwest of Ketchikan.

The 25,000-foot drilling program will assess the gold, silver, copper and zinc resources.

No actual mining is planned.

Iwanaka says exploration could last through December.
