Northern Tiger Resources Yukon Exploration Update
| ||June 22, 2011: Northern Tiger Resources Inc. ("Northern Tiger" or the "Company") (NTR: TSX-V) is pleased to provide an update on its planned $7.2 million Yukon exploration programs (see news release dated May 3, 2011). The 2011 exploration programs are designed to follow up high-grade gold drill discoveries made in 2010 at both the 3Ace and Sonora Gulch projects. |
Drilling at Sonora Gulch commenced last week. The primary focus of this 2,500 metre diamond drill program will be on the Gold Vein Zone -- a 1.4 kilometre long geochemical anomaly averaging 161 ppb gold-in-soils. A single drill hole testing the anomaly in 2010 returned a discovery intercept of 7.6 g/t gold and 155.5 g/t silver over 6.0 metres (see news release dated October 28, 2010).
Construction of the new camp at 3Ace is now advanced and the drill crew is mobilizing to the property this week. The 10,000 metre drill program will focus on the Main Zone, where two diamond drill holes have already intersected significant gold mineralization (including 4.3 g/t gold over 30.3 metres and 14.8 g/t gold over 10.9 metres - see news release dated November 4, 2010), and on Green Zone West (a 1,000 metre by 500 metre anomaly averaging 115 ppb gold-in-soils). Up to five additional targets on 3Ace and the adjoining Sprogge Property will also see preliminary drill testing this year.
"Our Yukon exploration program is well underway, although the late spring melt has caused some delays," says Greg Hayes, President of Northern Tiger. "We were able to compensate by getting the drill turning early at Sonora Gulch and completing some additional regional exploration work earlier in the season. With the drill crew mobilizing to 3Ace, we will soon have drills turning on two Yukon properties with significant gold discovery potential."
