Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - January 23, 2013) - Canyon Gold Corp. (OTCQB: CGCC) (The Company) is pleased to announce its planned Phase Two Exploration as recommended by the Technical Report.
Written according to National Instrument (NI) 43.101 STYLE TECHNICAL REPORT requirements.
- The Company’s Geologist, Alex Burton, following extensive on-site field inspection of the Company’s mineral lease properties in Elko County, Nevada, completed all necessary field work for the completion and delivery to the Company of the ‘Technical Report’ on the Company’s mineral lease claims. Mr. Burton has prepared the report with consideration given to NI 43.101 Technical Report requirements, although Mr. Burton is not independent as required by NI 43-101. The report has been filed on SEDAR, the Canadian equivalent of EDGAR.
The Report states in part:
“The Canyon Gold Spruce Point claims have an equal chance as their neighbors to find gold mineralization in the hopes of proving up a mine.
The initial examination studies showed similar conditions as at the Long Canyon deposit and that standard exploration techniques used for exploring for the Long Canyon type of Carlin trend ore body should work effectively on the Canyon Gold Corp. claims.
The Canyon Gold property is well positioned geologically to explore for a western extension of the Long Canyon type of gold deposit.”
CanyonGold’s exploration philosophy will include proven technology successfully applied in the discovery of Carlin Type Gold Deposits. Preliminary rock samples have been collected and a test program of drainage geochemical samples have been taken. Signs of mineralization, alteration and faulting with similar characteristics to the type of fracturing and alteration seen at the long Canyon Deposit (acquired by Newmont Mining for 2.3B USD), have been discovered on the CANYON GOLD Claims, with the hope of proving up a viable ore body.
The Phase Two program will include geochemistry and geophysical surveys in stage A, at a cost of approximately $625,000 and the drilling of 12 holes averaging 750 feet per hole for a cost of $1,100,000 in Stage B.
Based on the ‘Technical Report’ that covers part of the optioned EMAC claims, CanyonGold intends to exercise its option with EMAC Handels AG to lease a total of 280 mineral lease claims bringing the total claims to 310 claims or approximately 6,613 acres of mineral lease property subject to available funding.
