Economic mineral discoveries are always the culmination of years/decades of hard work and the accumulation of efforts of a team of people. Money, blood, sweat, tears and then suddenly the drill intersects the right rocks, and voila! Magic happens.

As is often said of a discovery hole, it makes the company an overnight success – that was years in the making. And so it could be with Idaho gold explorer Ophir Gold (TSX-V:OPHR, OTC: KPZIF) and its Breccia Gold Project located near Salmon, Idaho. Ophir is commencing its maiden drill program at Breccia in the next few weeks. The drill program will consist of 3,000+ meters of diamond drilling, targeting a low-sulphidation epithermal gold system at Breccia. Ophir will be focused on testing the ‘boiling zone’ of the epithermal system at Breccia, this is the zone where the highest precious metals are typically found in similar deposits such as the massive, ultra high-grade Hishikari Gold Mine in Japan.
