Suparna Gold updates drilling assay results at Sara Creek concession

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwire – July 27, 2012) – Suparna Gold Corp. ("Suparna" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SUG) is pleased to announce that all assay results for its 2,388 metres of the planned 5,000 metre diamond drill program on its Sara Creek Property located in Suriname, South America, have been received. Assays were completed by Filab Suriname and check assays are being completed by SGS Peru (ISO certified).

The first part of the diamond drilling program (16 holes) targeted gold in soil (auger sampled) as well as grab and channel sample anomalies associated with defined shear zones and interpreted lithological contact zones (both important parameters in gold mineralization within the Guiana Shield) as derived from airborne interpreted magnetic and radiometric data. A total of 1,391 samples were sent to Filab Suriname. A review of the assay results determined that holes GRA -003 and ALI-003 were the only holes to return assays of greater than 0.4 grams gold per ton.

Mineralized intervals intercepted in holes GRA-003 and ALI-003 are summarized below and no recovery issues are believed to materially impact the accuracy of these results.

Hole Id From
True Width
(60 degree dip)
1.5 13.5 12 10.4 4.56
including 12 13.5 1.5 1.3 33.70
84 87 3 2.6 0.285
115.5 116.2 0.7 0.6 3.14
(50 degree dip)
4 14 10 7.7 0.78
165 166.5 1.5 1.1 2.40

Gold mineralization intercepted by diamond drilling is associated with near surface felsic derived saprolite and clay rich zones, while silicified andesite hosts gold mineralization at depth within both holes GRA-003 and ALI-003. Although quartz vein stringers are associated with all of the above mentioned assays, significant mineralized quartz vein development is only present at 84 metres in hole GRA-003 and at 14 metres in hole ALI-003.
