GOLD: Golden Predator cuts 33 g/t at 3 Aces

YUKON – The latest drill results are in from the 3 Aces project belonging to Vancouver’s Golden Predator Mining Corp. The results point to an extension of high grade gold – 33 g/t – at the Ace of Spades zone, as well as the exciting discovery of a blind vein and the occurrence of significant assay values in stockwork zones.

Here are the some significant results:

  • Hole 3A16-RC-032 intersected 7.54 metres of 32.86 g/t Au from a depth of 16.76 metres, including 0.54 metre of 252.00 g/t; and a new blind vein at a depth of 71.63 m returned 3.23 metres of 10.04 g/t (hole ended in mineralization);
  • Hole 3A16-DD-036 intersected 3.12 metres of 13.18 g/t Au from a depth of 10.57 metres, including 1.25 metres of 26.70 g/t;
  • Hole 3A16-RC-042 intersected 6.75 metres of 25.61 g/t Au from a depth of 17.53 metres, including 0.75 metre of 146.50 g/t; and
  • Hole 3A16-DD-043 intersected 6.91 metres of 14.73 g/t Au from a depth of 15.24 metres, including 2.76 metres of 26.67 g/t.

Golden Predator also discovered near surface, lower grade stockwork gold mineralization previously unknown in two holes. Hole 3A16-RC-032 encountered 6.81 g/t Au across a drilled thickness of 59.44 metres from a depth of 16.76 metres to the end of the hole with no cut-off, including 29.72 metres of 12.07 g/t. Similar mineralization was encountered in hole 3A16-DD-043 above 31.29 metres.
