Tarsis Resources Receives Partial Diamond Drilling Results from White River Property

Tarsis Resources has obtained partial diamond drilling results from the White River property, which is situated in Southwest Yukon. Driven Capital has earned a 60% interest in the property; thus it is financially supporting the 2012 exploration campaign. The company drilled seven holes, totaling 1,327 m, and has completed the phase I diamond drill program.

The company drilled five holes in the HG Zone and two holes in the Cool Zone. Driven Capital have reported the initial four holes results from the HG Zone and will release the remaining three hole results at the earliest.

Many well-developed shear zones were encountered in all the drill holes, which were mineralized through combinations of arsenopyrite-chalcopyrite-pyrite breccia and veining, feldspar-quartz veining, sulphide ± carbonate breccia and veining, limonitic fracture gossans and networks. These zones are assumed to be dipping sharply with an en-echelon geometry that indicates good continuity from one hole to another.

Approximately half of these zones that were intersected by the drill program can be linked with surface lineaments and trench exposures, while the other half contains no surface geochemical or geologic showings. These blind zone occurrences are very positive. Poor recovery of core to total core loss was found in one or more sharp zones in every hole, because of the existence of clay-rich gouge, strong surface weathering or oxidation, and high degree of fracturing. Drill program was not successful in analyzing the shallow mineralized zones. High gold values are strongly present in only three holes within five distinct shear zones.

Hole WRDH-3 encountered 0.36 g/t gold over 15.60 m with many missing intervals that resulted in about 70% overall core recovery.

ALS Canada conducted all the assays and carried out sample preparation in Whitehorse and testing in North Vancouver.
