Eagle Plains Completes Drilling on Tintina Gold Belt Targets, Central Yukon
Cranbrook, B.C.:Eagle Plains Resources Ltd. (EPL:ASE) (the "Company") has completed diamond drilling programs and received analytical results for its' 100% owned Dragon Lake and Hit properties located in the Yukon portion of the Tintina Gold Belt.
Drilling on the Dragon Lake property consisted of 4 holes (288m) designed to test for down-dip continuity of widespread gold-bearing replacement/skarn mineralization trenched on surface. Although drillholes intersected thick sections of alteration and sulphide mineralization, only scattered anomalous gold values grading up to 3.66 g/t Au over 1.2m were encountered.
Work on the Hit property consisted of 2 holes (178m) designed to test an occurrence of replacement style gold mineralization which returned 7.85g/t Au over 7.0m in surface trenches. Although the holes encountered numerous anomalous intersections, grades at depth were lower than those at surface, with a maximum value of 2.56 g/t Au returned over 0.9m.
