Independence Gold Begins 2012 Exploration Program at Henderson and Boulevard Projects

Independence Gold (IGO) has reported that the exploration works for 2012 has been started at the company’s Henderson and Boulevard project regions, located in the White Gold District, Yukon. Diamond drilling, geological mapping and geochemical soil sampling will be included in the 2012 exploration campaign. IGO will begin the exploration at the two regions during early June, 2012.

Since 2008, the company has explored the Boulevard project. IGO has discovered a 20 km-long geochemical gold-in-soil anomaly in the south part of the project. The exploration program in 2012 will include around 3,500 in-fill soil samples in order to outline formerly discovered gold-in-soil geochemical anomalies present in the Boulevard Trend. This follow-up sampling program is specifically designed to produce further diamond drill targets.

The Boulevard Project includes 1,763 adjacent mineral claims and five properties, and encloses around 36,840 ha. The location of the project is 135 km towards the southern part of Dawson City and near the west portion of the Coffee Gold project.

The company carried out an aerial geophysical survey over Henderson in 2011. The survey results have shown the occurrence of fault structures in an active placer mining area. Geological mapping conducted at Henderson will concentrate on discovering mineralized structures, and IGO has planned to carry out follow-up diamond drill program during late August.

The Henderson Property includes 742 adjacent mineral claims and has covered around 15,500 ha. IGO has about 5,200 mineral claims, which enclose approximately 94,400 ha in the White Gold District.
