Tasca Resources Ltd announced that it has acquired the Selish Mountain property, a 290 hectare block approximately 15 kilometres southwest of Merritt, British Columbia and 10 kilometres to the north of Westhaven Ventures Inc.'s Shovelnose Gold Property, where recent drilling has returned intersections of 8.95 g/t gold over 46.2 metres and 24.5 g/t gold over 17.77 metres. Tasca cautions investors it has not verified the Westhaven exploration data. Historic exploration on the Selish Mountain property consists of geological mapping, soil sampling and induced polarization surveys for porphyry copper in the early 1970's. Excavator trenching and diamond drilling uncovered sulfide mineralization in the intrusive and hosting volcanics, consisting of disseminations, blebs and discontinuous stringers of chalcopyrite and molybdenite. This description is taken from the BC Ministry of Energy and Mines Minfile database. The geological data is not available, so Tasca must caution investors it has not verified the exploration data.

CEO Clive Massey said that "Tasca believes in the mineral potential of the Spences Bridge and Nicola Group rocks throughout the lower central interior of British Columbia. While everyone is obviously excited about the Shovelnose discovery in Spences Bridge Group rocks, the potential of the underlying Nicola Group rocks can't be overlooked. We feel the Selish Mountain property has excellent potential for gold and fits in with our Princeton Gold Property 95kilometres to the southeast."
