BRITISH COLUMBIA – Toronto-based Barkerville Gold says the 50,000-metre drill program at the Iron Mountain deposit of its Cariboo gold project near Wells continues to return handsome grades. The company believes the Mosquito Creek zone and Shaft zone both have potential for expansion.

At Mosquito Creek zone hole IM-18-102 that assayed 14.70 g/t gold over 23.60 meters, at a vertical depth of 120 meters. This intercept is 10 meters down dip from hole IM-17-100 that assayed 24.13 g/t over 12.70 meters.

Recent high grade intercepts at Shaft Zone include 3,780 g/t gold over 0.70-meter-wide sample in hole IM-18-108 and 11.83 g/t over 17.50 meters in hole IM-18-113. Detailed drilling results are presented in the table below.
