Yukon-Nevada Gold Corp. (TSX: YNG) (Frankfurt Xetra Exchange: NG6) has announced favorable results from its 2010 drilling program at Ketza River.
The Ketza River property is wholly-owned by Yukon-Nevada Gold Corp., and is a past gold producer located near the town of Ross River in the Yukon Territory, Canada.
The recently received assay results are from manto-style (limestone replacement) targets from the Peel and Penguin zones drilled in 2010. All drill holes referenced in this news release are diamond drill holes completed by one drill rig between June 13, 2010 and September 8, 2010.
Six drill holes were completed west of the 2008 Peel Zone manto resource. One drill hole, KR-10-1522, was also drilled within the existing resource.
The 2010 Penguin Zone drilling tested several magnetic and VLF anomalies in the vicinity of the proposed Penguin pit. The best intercept was from KR-10-1550, which cut 2.38 meters grading 8.09 g/t Au.
None of the recent drill intercepts listed above were included in the data used for the NI 43-101 resource estimate released on April 14, 2008 and therefore could lead to an increase in the resource at the Ketza River project.
