Gold Canyon intercepts 292.5 meters at 1.13 grams per tonne gold at Springpole gold project-stakes additional 10,000 acres
Gold Canyon Resources announced assays from the final four holes of its Winter 2011 Diamond Drill Program at its 100% controlled Springpole Gold Project, located 110 kilometers northeast of the Red Lake Mining Camp, Ontario, Canada. Results include 292.5 meters at 1.13 grams per tonne gold (959 feet at 0.033 oz per ton gold) including 198.5 meters at 1.42 grams per tonne gold (651 feet at 0.041 oz per ton gold) in hole SP11-059 drilled in the southeast part of the Portage Zone.
"Our infill drilling this winter continues to demonstrate remarkable consistency within the Portage Zone," comments Dr. Quinton Hennigh, Technical Advisor and Director of Gold Canyon Resources. "Although it is too early to estimate the average grade of the deposit, the weighted average grade of all 2010-11 drill intercepts in the Portage Zone is 1.30 grams per tonne. We believe the Portage Zone will prove to be one of the highest grade bulk tonnage projects in the Shield."
