Millennial Precious Metals Corp. (TSX-V: MPM) is pleased to announce laboratory results for its Phase 1 drill campaign at the Red Canyon project located in Nevada. Red Canyon is a Carlin-style, sediment-hosted gold project in the heart of the Battle Mountain-Eureka mineral trend, located 50 km northwest of the town of Eureka and 37 km southeast of the 20M-ounce Cortez Hills Mine complex. The property consists of 6,500 acres (2,600 hectares) containing several target zones. In early May, Millennial commenced Phase 1 of a 12 drill hole program designed to tighten the geological controls and three-dimensional geometry of gold mineralization at the Heavenly target zone.
Composite highlights of holes -003, -004, -005, -007, and -009 include:
“These results reinforce our expectations of consistency Carline style – oxidized mineralization across several drill holes in the Heavenly target zone,” stated Jason Kosec, President and CEO of Millennial. Jason also added, “on 2002 our Phase 2 drilling will test down dip and along strike continuity of the close to surface oxidized mineralization and will expand the program to other target areas of interest of the Red Canyon Project.”
The first phase of this drill program includes 2,200m in 12 planned drill holes at the Heavenly target zone. The Heavenly zone is one of several primary targets across 6 square km of outcropping alteration in Devonian-age sedimentary rocks. The Heavenly target consists of oxidized Carlin-style mineralization. Gold mineralization occurs within a calcareous siltstone and mineralized fault zones.
These first holes confirmed the mineralization style, established main ore controls, grade continuity and geometry and increase the confidence in the geologic model at the Heavenly target zone. Compiled with historical data, the drill program will continue to expand the footprint for oxidized mineralization in the Heavenly target zone to the west and east, encompassing an area approximately 200 x 800 meters in size and is open to the south and southeast (down dip).
Millennial has an option to purchase a 100% interest in the Red Canyon property pursuant to a lease and option to purchase agreement with Red Canyon Corporation. For additional information relating to the Red Canyon property, please refer to Millennial’s Listing Application which is available on SEDAR (www.sedar.com) under Millennial’s profile.
