Tungsten Corp. ("Tungsten Corp." or the "Company"), an exploration stage company focused on the evaluation, acquisition and development of domestic tungsten mining opportunities, is pleased to announce that the stream sediment, soil and rock sampling survey recently completed by Carlin Trend Mining Services Ltd. of Elko, NV, identified several areas that have elevated concentrations of tungsten within the Company's Claim Block at the Cherry Creek Tungsten Project in Nevada.
The identified areas will be subject to additional sampling in the next phase of field work that will begin shortly. The objective of the next phase will be to prospect up-stream and identify the source of the tungsten in the samples taken, where results returned concentrations above the 5 ppm economic threshold. Some of the more significant findings that will guide the work program in the next phase of field work are:
- An area in the southeast quadrant of the Claim Block returned results ranging from 24.0 to 31.8 ppm tungsten. This very coherent anomaly, and its location in relation to a known up-stream source, leads the Company to believe that other significant mineralized zones will be found in this area.
- On the eastern and western slopes of the Pinenut Canyon, in the southwest quadrant of the Claim Block, areas with no known tungsten prospects or old mines, returned results ranging from 9.0 to 11.8 ppm tungsten.
- A fairly large basin in the east central section of the Claim Block, west and up-slope from known sources, with no known tungsten mineralization, returned a result of 7.1 ppm tungsten.
- An area in the northwest quadrant of the Claim Block, with no known tungsten prospects or old mines, returned results ranging from 6.1 to 7.4 ppm tungsten.
Company President Guy Martin comments, "We are very encouraged by the results of the sampling survey, which have identified several new, previously undocumented areas with high anomalous tungsten concentration. The next phase of the work program will seek to identify these new sources of mineralization and expand the basis of our claim."
