Ascot Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:AOT) has announced the results for drill holes seven through eleven of the 2010 drill program on the Mt. Margaret property in the St. Helens Mining District of Skamania County in Washington State.
Drill holes seven and eight were drilled in the northwestern portion of the property from a common pad. This area had seen relatively little historic drilling by Duval and these holes tested the continuity of mineralization in this area. Hole MM-10-7 confirmed good continuity of a steeply NW dipping higher grade zone below hole MM-10-05 and the zone persists to depths greater than 450 meters below the surface. Hole MM-10-07 and 08 also tested areas of lower grade "barren pottasic core" area and demonstrate the presence of wide areas of lower grade Cu, Mo, Ag and Au are present.
Drill holes nine, ten and eleven are a fence of holes across the central area of mineralization and encountered a wide area of mineralization extending the mineralization to depths of 450 meters. This area was historically only weakly defined and the present fence of holes has expanded the width of mineralization to in excess of 400 meters.
This news release completes reporting for the 2010 drill program. Planning for the 2011 program is underway.
MM-10-07 Azimuth 315 degrees Dip -50
MM-10-08 Azimuth 270 degrees Dip -70
