The news from across the country is that high-grade gold can be found almost everywhere, according to news received this week. Here is a sample.

Montreal’s YORBEAU RESOURCES reports partial results from its Rouyn property near Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec. Core from hole 06-S-413 assayed 49.98 g/t Au over 4.3 metres (uncut). Included in that section of core was a 1.1-m intersection of 90.66 g/t Au and another 1.1-m intersection of 74.01 g/t.

Near Stewart, B.C., TENAJON RESOURCES of Vancouver reports high-grade gold from its Kansas claim. Hole 114 returned 30.65 g/t Au over 3.05 m. Hole 132 tested 23.14 g/t Au plus 1,409.0 g/t Ag, 0.02% Cu, 0.39% Pb and 0.98% Zn. PINNACLE MINES and MOUNTAIN BOY MINERALS are earning a 60% interest in the Kansas claim by conducting the exploration.

The past-producing Ketza River mine near Ross River, Yukon, is the target of work by Vancouver’s YGC RESOURCES. Four of the six chip and channel samples from the Shamrock zone assayed over half an ounce of gold, or 16.36, 178.45, 26.50 and 21.80 g/t Au. Ketza River was mined for its oxide ore in the late 1980s until sulphide mineralization was encountered in the pit.
