Alhambra Resources Completes Magnetic and Remote Sensing Surveys on Dombraly-Shirotnaia Trend

Canadian explorer and producer of gold, Alhambra Resources has announced that it has completed remote sensing and magnetic surveys on an area covering 1,360 km2 on the Dombraly-Shirotnaia trend, which is located at the South eastern section of the Uzboy Project area.

The 9,800 km2 Uzboy Project area is fully owned by the company. The second phase of this project is likely to commence by 2012.

While the gravity survey covered an area of 1,360 km2 the magnetic survey covered an area of 1,070 km2. Apart from this, both the surveys covered a strike length of 60 km at the trend. The company also completed an ASTER imagery survey in order to locate areas where there was hydrothermal alteration related to gold mineralization and also to locate potential tectonic features. The surveys were completed by a geophysical services supplier based in Kazakhstan called Azimut Energy Services. While the magnetic survey was conducted along a grid of 1.0 by 0.1 km, the gravity survey was taken along a grid of 1.0 by 1.0 km. Alhambra Resources owns exploitation and exploration rights for 2.4 million acres of the Uzboy Project.
