Inter-Citic Minerals Inc. (TSX:ICI) reported the discovery of new extensive at surface gold mineralization through trenching at its Dachang gold project in China.
As quoted in the press release:
As part of the Company’s $6.3 million exploration program in 2011, Inter-Citic has conducted extensive trenching in new areas at Dachang. To date, Inter-Citic has completed almost 15,000 m of trenching in new areas, with approximately 8,500 m of trenching in the southeast corner of the property on the South East Anomaly (“SEA”). Trenches in the SEA and SW Zones are new discoveries in areas with no previous drilling.
The South East Anomaly has now been sampled through surface trenching at intervals of between 40 to 60 m. The SEA trenching results indicate at least five separate parallel fault structures that have strike lengths of 800 to 1,500 m and remain open to further expansion. Work on the new anomaly in South West Dachang is just beginning and so far has been sampled through almost 800 m of surface trenching. Both the SEA and SW anomalies are now in the process of being tested as part of the Company’s 2011 drill program.
