New Destiny Mining Corp announced that trenching, road building, drill site construction and rock chip sampling has been completed on its Treasure Mountain Silver property, located near Tulameen, BC. The Company's Treasure Mountain Silver Property covers 10,700 hectares of geologically prospective ground adjacent to Nicola Mining Inc's Treasure Mountain Property. The Treasure Mountain Silver Property hosts at least seven gold, silver, lead, zinc and or copper BC MINFILE occurrences in various regions. These include gold-quartz vein, polymetallic veins and porphyry type showings. Some of these mineral occurrences have associated historic underground workings. The Property occurs within the Intermontane Terrane, which hosts numerous porphyry copper deposits.

An initial work program of trenching and rock sampling, and access road and drill site construction has been completed at two target areas: the Superior (Lucky Todd) and Railroad Creek prospects. These areas cover copper-gold rock geochemical anomalies identified during previous work programs on the property. Work started at the Superior, where a previous sample returned 8.81 grams per tonne gold.

Drill sites were prepared and a total of 60 metres of excavator trenching was competed that exposed a number of intrusive-hosted quartz veinlets mineralized with pyrite and chalcopyrite. Work then progressed to the Railroad Creek prospect, which is the site of at least 8 historic mine adits that explored copper mineralization hosted in diorite-granodiorite. Rock geochemical anomalies for copper were previously identified at this site. A total of 890 metres of access track/bush road were constructed, 15 metres of trenching completed and 2 drill sites were built. A mineralized zone containing pyrite and chalcopyrite was exposed over a length of 12 metres, extending from an historic mine adit. Rock channel sampling was conducted at both sites and samples were submitted for analysis.
