Manson Creek Resources Identifies Three New Gossans at Tell Property

Manson Creek Resources has discovered three new gossans at the Tell property, which is situated just to the south of the Rau claims of ATAC Resources in Yukon.

As the company was evaluating the area of the vegetation kill zone and Tell natural spring gossan, the geologists identified three new, active and strong natural spring gossans namely Ash Springs, Crystal Springs and Area 51. These recent discoveries expand to more than 600 m from the large Tell zone, approximately east-west and every gossan has several active spring vents. The gathered reconnaissance soil samples in 2005 from the Ash Springs and Crystal Springs zones has encountered high anomalous arsenic, lead, zinc and many other gold pathfinders. Manson Creek has collected the samples of soil, water and rock from the new discoveries, which are being examined. Moreover, the geological staff has completed the comprehensive stream sampling over the property.

Manson Creek considers the four gossans of the Tell property to be of great significance because of the numerous successful drill zones found at similar gossans in the area. Four gossan zones’ strike possibly outlines a typical fault along the facade of the mountain, which has brought the natural spring gossans’ mineralized source near the current day surface. Additionally, the discovery of fossiliferous limestone, which is near the four Tell property gossans helps the exploration model of the company. The Crystal Springs, Ash Springs, Area 51 and Tell gossans have not yet been drill tested and every zone is identical to the Ocelot mineralized occurrence.

The Ocelot mineralized zone was discovered by targeting a natural spring surface gossan, which was not drilled, along with strong anomalous lead and zinc sample results. The location of the four Tell property gossans is close to the regional carbonate units and to the Rackla gold belt.
