Independence Gold Identifies New Gold-In-Soil Anomaly at YCS Property

Independence Gold, a junior exploration firm, has declared that a fresh gold-in-soil anomaly has been discovered at the YCS property. This discovery includes assays of up to 4.53 g/t gold, followed by the preliminary results obtained from the company’s summer exploration campaign conducted in Yukon.

The company gathered 5,641 rock and soil samples from the project area, in which 800 samples were specifically compiled from the YCS property. The project area lies in the White Gold District, which is near the western end of Coffee property. It lies about 35 km towards the southern part of the Kinross Gold's Golden Saddle deposit and roughly 60 km to the southern part of Comtock's trenching discovery.

Independence Gold’s CEO and President, Randy Turner stated that further soil sampling and mechanical trenching campaign have been started to extend these fresh anomalies, depending on the positive soil results. A number of high-grade isolated gold soil samples obtained so far reveal geochemical signature that is identical to multiple discoveries of Kaminak Gold.

The Denali zone is a gold-in-soil anomaly, whose length is 700 m. It has four gold assay regions having values more than 75 ppb. This zone comprises five soil samples with gold over 1.42 g/t, and related anomalous pathfinder elements. The range of samples in this zone varies from under detection limit to 4.53 g/t of gold and average 123.7 ppb of gold. This zone lies on the YCS property that is adjacent to, and towards the northern part of the Boulevard property.

At present, a 225 m follow-up trenching is being performed at the property, as a result of this anomaly discovery.
