Mountain Boy Minerals Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:MTB) has been notified by its joint venture partner, Jayden Resources Inc.,that assays from drill hole SC10-311 returned 55 metres averaging 8.42 grams per tonne (0.246 oz/ton) gold and 12.53 grams per tonne (0.366 oz/ton) silver, including 7.0 metres of 32.89 grams per tonne (0.960 oz/ton) gold.
To date the program has completed 18 holes totaling 2697 metres as part of the planned 2010 program, which has addressed two key objectives:
- Infill holes to aid in ongoing resource studies and confirmation of the grade and continuity of the mineralization
- Step-out holes to explore for continuation of the mineralization to the north
Drill intersections were calculated using a cutoff of 0.30 g/t Au, and are reported as drilled thicknesses. Work to determine true thicknesses of mineralization is ongoing. Individual samples below the stated cutoff grade of 0.30 g/t Au are occasionally included in the calculated drill intersections, but only to the extent that the average grade in any two adjacent samples remains above the cutoff. Drill samples were assayed by Inspectorate Exploration and Mining Services Ltd. (ISO9001:2008) in Richmond, B.C. for gold by fire assay of a 30 gram (1 assay ton) charge with an AA finish, or if over 10.0 g/t were re-assayed and completed with a gravimetric finish. For these samples, the gravimetric data were utilized in calculating gold intersections. QA/QC included the insertion and continual monitoring of numerous standards and blanks into the sample stream. Samples were also analyzed for a 32-element geochemical suite using ICP-MS.
