Silver Quest Resources Discovers Significant Gold-in Soil Anomaly at Capoose Project

Silver Quest Resources has discovered a significant gold-in-soil anomaly, called Rusty Creek, at the Capoose project, which is situated around 185 km southwest of Prince George, British Columbia.

The Rusty Creek anomaly was found during 2010 geochemical soil sampling and is of 1.2 km length and 0.5 km broad.

The company has performed this geochemical sampling program in an inspection style over a portion of the Capoose project property that is sited 18 km southwest of the Capoose Deposit. The project includes 97 claims covering about 39,607 hectares. The sampling program has been conducted in a grid orientation, which covers an area of 128 km2. Silver Quest has collected 826 soil samples in total at 200m gaps along lines spaced at 500m distance.

The soil samples show gold concentrations ranging from 0 to 61 ppb, particularly 32 soils hold above 15 ppb gold (95th percentile). By means of this percentile value, a 1.2 km by 0.5 km anomaly has been found and the value ranges from 15 to 45 ppb gold. Additional soil sampling has been deliberated to describe this anomaly better during the 2011 drilling. In order to analyze the mineralized bedrock  source of the anomaly, the company has planned for diamond drilling after prospecting and geochemical rock sampling in this area.

Stewart Group Global in Kamloops, BC has performed geochemical soil analysis. A 28-element ICPMS package is used for testing samples.
