Almaden Minerals Reports Preliminary Results from Willow Project

Almaden Minerals has announced the initial results from a recently finished Titan 24 deep penetration geophysical survey at its Willow project. The Titan survey results have described numerous high chargeability areas, both at depth and near to surface. The chargeability anomalies offer many huge targets for follow-up drill testing.

This project covers a hydrothermal alteration area, which is inferred to signify the lithocap to an outsized conserved porphyry copper-gold system. Alteration and geologic mapping has defined an approximately 2 x 2 km strong hydrothermal alteration region featured by alunite and brecciation, dickite and kaolinite alteration and silicification, all traits of a high sulphidation system lying over a porphyry infringement at depth. Supporting fluid inclusion examination authenticates the existence of a porphyry system. Almaden has encountered anomalous gold, silver, copper and molybdenum from the rock and soil stream sediment samples.

Titan 24 determines depth up to 750 m using IP (chargeability) and over 1.5 km depth with MT (magnetotelluric resistivity) information. This multi-parameter information makes the imaging system a best choice for the direct mineral deposit discovery and for getting subsurface data connected to geologic formation.

J. Duane Poliquin, Chairman of the company, has stated that Almaden is waiting for the final analysis from Quantec before scheduling a diamond drilling program to examine these positive new targets and has already received the drilling permits.
