Barkerville Gold Mines Announces Remaining Assay Results from New Discovery Zone

Barkerville Gold Mines Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:BGM)(FRANKFURT:IWUB) reports the remaining assay results of 2010 from 175 channel samples at the new discovery zone on Barkerville Mountain announced in September 2010.

The new zone has now been mapped and extends the original discovery area to 125 meters long in trenching and up to 26 meters wide in 18 channels. A diamond drill program for the new discovery zone is slated to begin in March 2010. The Company is permitted to drill up to 900 holes for 193,500 meters on Barkerville Mountain over the next three years and is able to drill throughout the year.

New highlights are as follows:

In total, 175 channel samples were collected from 18 channels along a large, 125 meter trench with the channel intervals being approximately 6 meters.

The reconnaissance rock channel samples were collected with a geological hammer and put in plastic bags. The plastic sample bags were marked on the outside, using a black felt marker pen, with identifying samples numbers. In addition, the paper end-of-sample tags were placed inside the upper portion of the bags; the tops of the bags were tied closed with ribbons, sometimes the top of the plastic bags were secured with staples. After all the samples are placed in the rice bags at the mine site, they are transported by the Company's personnel to a shipping company in Quesnel, BC for trans-shipment to Eco Tech Lab (ETL) in Kamloops, B.C. Sample preparation and geochemical assaying is done at Eco Tech Lab, following their own internal standards for quality control and verification. The gold assaying method uses a standard fire assay with AA finish. Metallic gold assays were done to confirm the fire assay results considering existence of visible gold in the samples. ETL is certified under the Assayers Certification Program of B.C.
