VANCOUVER, Oct. 9, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ximen Mining Corp. (TSX-V:XIM) (the "Company" or "Ximen") is pleased to announce that Drilling is now underway on hole 14-06. This hole is testing the Border Zone, a previously undrilled target that straddles the historic boundary between the Brett property and the former Gold Star property to the west. Ximen has recently acquired these adjoining claims to the west and is now in a position to drill the first hole into this border zone.
This is an area of intense alteration, with quartz veining, just west of the Main Zone. As in other areas of the property, outcrop is limited in this area. A strong gold-silver-arsenic (plus Sb, Se, Te, Mo, Hg) anomaly was defined by a recently completed soil geochemical survey over the area and elevated gold values, to 599 ppb Au, 417 ppb Au and 204 ppb Au, were returned from limited rock samples collected.
