UrbanGold Minerals Inc. (TSXV: UGM) ("UrbanGold" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has acquired, through map designation, 11 additional claims in the Troilus area bringing its total land package to 73 claims or 3,970 hectares for the property.
The claims are known to contain the PK occurrence which is reported to have values of 0.66% Cu, 6.70% Zn and 15.9 g/t Ag over 9.8 metres in surface channel samples and 0.8% Cu, 2.59% Zinc and 17.7 g/t Ag over 14.9 metres in limited near surface drilling (INCO Mining - Sigeom database).
The PK showing is located in the southcentral portion of the Troilus belt, approximately 6 km east of the Lessard base metal deposit owned by Landore Resources and 5 km west of Soquem's DeMaures base metal deposit. UrbanGold geologists have reviewed available historical geological information for the immediate area and preliminary data suggests the occurrence is located near the hinge of a major regional fold.
Mathieu Stephens, President and CEO of UrbanGold commented: "The PK occurrence constitutes a compelling target and warrants further work given the area's limited drilling and the potential along strike and at greater depth. Although our summer work programs will mainly focus on our gold assets, a small surface program will occur in the vicinity of the PK occurrence as well".
The new claims are located 5 kilometres southwest from UrbanGold's main block (58 claims) and are easily accessible via forestry roads. A map follows showing their location. The reader is cautioned that the reported historical intersections above pre-date NI 43-101 standards and practices and true widths could not be verified or estimated.
