Mukuba Resources Encounters Polymetallic Zinc-Copper-Silver Mineralization at Chipirinyuma Target

Mukuba Resources Limited (TSX-V:MKU) has announced that confirmatory drilling on the Chipirinyuma Target within the Nyimba Project area has been completed and that assay results confirm the presence of polymetallic zinc-copper-silver mineralization.

In late 2010, Mukuba completed eight, confirmatory boreholes (509.88 metres) within a 2 kilometre portion of the approximate 3.5 kilometre strike length.

Trevor Richardson, President and CEO of Mukuba Resources commented, "This initial drilling program on the Chipirinyuma Target confirmed base metal mineralization and Mukuba's focus in 2011 on Nyimba will be to test the extent of this mineralization. To date, no work has been done to test the lateral or vertical extent of the deposit. Within the Nyimba Project area there are four other distinct areas of mineralization; Lutala Hills, Umba River, Ndake, and Ngambwa and these will also be tested in 2011."

Results from the mineralized borehole intersections confirm polymetallic mineralization hosted in the high grade metamorphic rocks of the Muva Metamorphic Belt. Mr. Richardson added, "Although we will continue to work on the copper potential of the very prospective Northcore Project, these results from Nyimba give us the confidence to move ahead on this exciting base metal prospect."
