2013 Regional Exploration
The 2013 regional exploration program will continue to build on the successful 2012 exploration program that identified over 40 early-stage anomalies or targets. Exploration emphasis in 2013 will be to advance existing targets to the drill stage and identify new gold targets. The primary areas of exploration focus will be within the 40 km long Nadaleen Trend at the eastern end of the property and within the 35 km long Rau Trend containing the Tiger Deposit at the western end. Widely spaced transect geochemistry surveys and prospecting will also be conducted between both trends to follow up on over 20 geochemically anomalous drainages identified by previous surveys.
Regional exploration crews are currently advancing the high priority Tier 1 Carlin-type gold targets within a 10 by 18 km area surrounding the Anubis Zone. Many of these promising targets exhibit strong coincident gold+/-pathfinder soil geochemical anomalies that are associated with favourable stratigraphy or northwest trending structures. To date, they have received little if any follow-up work. These anomalies are very similar to those that led to the discoveries of the Conrad, Osiris, Isis East and Sunrise Zones located 10 km to the east. Additional transect and infill geochemical surveys along with detailed prospecting will be conducted throughout the Nadaleen Trend in 2013.
Recent exploration along the Rau Trend has identified over 10 significant gold targets and 23 anomalous drainages. Reconnaissance soil sampling in 2012 identified the Bengal Showing, located 3 km south of the Tiger Gold Deposit. Bengal occurs within a newly defined 5.6 km intermittent gold-in-soil anomaly underlain by a regionally extensive carbonaceous unit, where outcrop channel samples returned grades from below detection to 3.2 g/t gold across 1.0 m. The Bengal Showing target area will receive infill geochemical surveys and detailed prospecting in 2013.
True widths for all drill-holes mentioned in this news release are estimated to be 75% - 100% of intersected widths.
