Reports 5.9gm/t Gold at Crucible Optioned Property
May 3, 2016 / New Carolin Gold Corp. (the “Company” or “New Carolin”) (TSXV: LAD). Further to its new release March 22, 2016 regarding the option agreement with Crucible Resources Ltd (Crucible), the Company provides the following clarification.
The property option agreement entered into with Crucible consists of a total of twenty (20) claims covering an area of 30 sq km. These claims are situated in the southern portion of the Ladner Gold Project, below the Coquihalla Hwy. Three (3) of the new Crucible claims adjoin a prospective new gold zone which has been traced to a length of approx. 1 kilometer to date, where a sampling program was carried out in the 1980’s. Reported soil samples from this historic work program were between 20 and 1000 ppb, with one sample of 5900 ppb (close to 6 g/t) and wide areas with numerous samples were reported between 100-1000 ppb. The assay of 5900 ppb and other sporadic higher grade samples reported are unusual in soils and we note this may indicate placer-type gold particles in the soil cover.
Correction: Reported soil samples from this historic program were initially stated in “ppm” instead of “ppb” in the March 22, 2016 news release and were typographically errors. Note that there is no change in the net result in respect of the value given in g/t in the March 22, 2016 news release.
Gold values stated are based on historical reports and have not been verified by the Company. The Company intends to engage Crucible to carry out a new sampling program in 2016 to confirm historic sample locations and assay results, and expand the sampling program on the three new claims with the expectation of extending the gold zone and locating the source. Very little exploration work has been carried out on the lower 72 square kilometer section of the Project to date, which includes the former high grade Emancipation Mine and one of the Company’s other prospective gold zones. Thedesignated area with elevated gold values spread consistently over a wide area is of immediate interest and will be the focus of further exploration on the lower claim block. Further details will be provided in this regard when exploration plans are finalized.
