BTU METALS CORP. announced the mobilization of a diamond drill on the Tooth area of the Dixie Halo project located near its northern border, immediately south of Great Bear Resources/Kinross LP fault gold discovery area. The area of immediate focus is towards the eastern part of the Tooth area which has never been tested.

This area remains a significant target in the northern part of the property where a completely overburden covered area nearly 2 km east-west and about 1 km north-south remains completely untested. This area is located adjacent to the boundary of the Kinross Dixie project, about 2km to the southeast of the LP fault area gold zone, and immediately east of where BTU intersected gold values up to 2 g/t. A significant topographic lineament trends southeasterly from the LP gold discovery area to the target area on the BTU property. There are structural offsets of magnetic trends in the area and areas of magnetic destruction both of which indicate the location of significant structures which may be gold bearing.
