Currie Rose Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CUI) - Harold Smith reports that drilling will commence on October 23, 2010 on the Company's 100% owned Sisu River property in Tanzania.
The Mabale Hills project consists of five licenses and one application covering 261 square km and includes the Sisu River, Mwamazengo and Dhahabu properties.
The first phase program will consist of 3000 meters RC drilling, with an immediate 3000 meter follow-up program based on results.
In the fall of 2009 it was discovered that approximately 50 Artisanal miners were digging pits and mining on the Sisu River property. The Company's geologist collected random samples from the pits and sent them in for assay.
The spring rains of 2010 flooded the pits and the miners have left the property.
A total of 13 samples were collected from insitu material consisting of sheared/silicified quartz porphyry with minor pyrite and arsenopyrite accessory minerals. The sample area contains numerous artisanal pits, covering an area of approximately 150m x 30m with colluvial overburden approximately two to three meters deep.
Of the thirteen samples collected, six returned better than 5 g/t gold with a high of 89.2 g/t whilst a further five samples returned grades between 1-5 g/t gold. Only two samples returned values below 1g/t gold.
The Sisu River prospect is approximately two kilometres from and within the same geological structure as the Mwamazengo discovery.
The Qualified person for the release of this exploration information is Michael Griffiths MAusIMM, Director of Currie Rose Resources Inc.
