Taku Gold has obtained results from a 963 m, four hole core drill campaign carried out at the 544-claim Rosebute property, which is situated about 55 km due southern part of Dawson City in Yukon. The company purchased this property from Shawn Ryan, a popular Prospector in Yukon, in March 2010.
The drill program was conducted to examine several strong gold-in-soil trends received during last year from a region located in the property’s northwestern part, discovered as the Norwest zone. Notable intersections of gold were encountered in three holes out of four.
The company intercepted 0.95 g/t gold over 23.4 m in the initial hole, wherein up to 1.3 g/t gold was encountered during soil geochemical sampling program performed in an anomalous trend. It encountered 1.58 g/t gold over 1.0 m in second hole and 0.88 g/t gold over 3.0 m in fourth hole. Gold-bearing intervals were not intersected in the third hole, which was drilled to examine 900 m gold-in-soil trend with up to 0.2 g/t gold values.
Taku intersected 0.952 g/t gold over 22.6 m in hole RO12-01; 1.576 g/t gold over 1 m in hole RO12-02; and 0.884 g/t gold over 3 m in hole RO12-04. Gold-bearing intervals were not found in RO12-03.
Vancouver-based Acme Analytical Laboratory determined all analytical results.
Drill core sampled were specifically set by crushing 1 kg to 80% passing -10 mesh, followed by pulverization of a 250 g sub-sample to 85% passing -200 mesh. ICP-ES finish and 30 g fire assay was conducted on every sub-sample for gold.
