SAN FRANCISCO, April 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jiulian Resources Inc. (JLR:TSX.V) reported the results from the first two diamond drill holes at its Big Kidd property, which is located near Merritt, in southern British Columbia. According to the company, "all holes to date have intersected appreciable widths of Au-Cu porphyry style mineralization and alteration."

Company mentioned: Jiulian Resources Inc.

The project is just nine kilometers northeast of Westhaven Venture's Shovelnose gold project, which has reported drill results as high as 39.31 grams per tonne gold over 12.66 meters.

Hole BK-19-002 returned 0.41 g/t gold equivalent, consisting of 0.28 g/t gold and 0.09% copper over 541 meters.

So far, Jiulian has drilled more than 3,500 meters in eight drill holes. The ninth hole, BK-10-009, is currently being drilled 50 meters south of hole 4; the company notes the hole is "designed to test the Big Kidd Breccia to depths beyond all previous drilling on the project."

In March, Jiulian announced it was expanding its phase 1 maiden drill program.

Scott Dorion, qualified person and director for Jiulian, stated, "Given what we have observed in these initial drill holes, we are expanding our maiden drill program to better define the extent of what appears to potentially be a widespread alkalic Au-Cu porphyry system."

Jiulian Resources noted that the Big Kidd property has a "network of gravel roads, LTE cellular service and a high-voltage power line running across it."
