New Discovery of the Dakota Zone at Cantung-17.3 ft Interval of 0.76% WO3; 21.2 ft Interval of 0.72% WO3; 13.3 ft Interval of 1.77% WO3
North American Tungsten Corporation Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:NTC) announce the results of the Fall 2012 surface diamond drill program and the discovery of what is now known as the “Dakota Zone” located a mere 700 metres from the main E Zone.
A surface diamond drill program was put into place to follow up on surface diamond drill hole S09-07 (drilled in 2009) and the results from underground drilling in 2012. As a result a total of 9,140 feet in 9 holes were drilled from one surface location.
Drilling and Modeling Program Complete
The surface program utilized a track mounted diamond drill fitted with NQ size core. Nine holes averaging over 1000 ft. each were drilled with spacing at depth varying from 100-180 feet. Core recovery was excellent and close to 100%. The core was logged by in-house geologists and samples were assayed both in-house and at ALS Laboratories, Vancouver. Visual estimates (using a black light) was also used as a final check.
Significant results from the 9 holes (using a 0.3% WO3 cut off) include 17.3 ft. averaging 0.76%WO3 and 0.31% copper (hole S12-31), 11.6 ft. averaging 0.30% WO3 and 5.00% zinc (hole S12-32) and 13.3 ft. averaging 1.77% WO3 (hole S12-39). Results from the drilling are summarized below.

Using a 0.3% WO3 cut off
The new area termed the “Dakota Zone” is located on the north flank of the granitic intrusive that lies in close proximity to the “ore limestone” and “Swiss Cheese” horizons of the Cantung Mine.
