Northern Vertex hits multiple high-grade gold intercepts as drilling success continues on Western extension of Moss Gold-Silver Project
Tuesday, Apr 03, 2012
Northern Vertex Mining Corp. (TSX.V:NEE) (OTCQX:NHVCF) is pleased to announce results from core holes 5 through 10 as part of a Phase II, 20,000 foot (6500 meter) infill drill and resource expansion program to test the western extension of the Moss stockwork Gold-Silver vein system in Mohave County, Northwestern Arizona.
States Northern Vertex Chief Geologist Dr. Bob Thompson, "We are very pleased with current results. Five out of 6 drill holes returned high-grade intercepts including: 6.26 gpt Gold Equivalent(1) over 1.68 meters, 5.37 gpt Gold eqv over 1.83 meters, 4.03 gpt Gold eqv over 1.22 meters and 3.61 gpt Gold eqv over 4.57 meters. Results confirm the Gold mineralization along Moss's western extension is expanding and robust. Significantly, the high-grade zones are contained within larger mineralized intersections which are above internal cut-off grades and are expected to play a key factor in adding additional tonnage and ounces to our current 43-101 Gold-Silver resource."
To date, the Company has completed 28 holes of its Phase II in-fill drill and resource expansion program to test the western extension of the Moss Gold-Silver project. Included in the total are 18 RC drill holes and 10 diamond drill (core) holes. The Company reports Phase II drilling on the western extension is now complete. Results from the final holes of the program are expected in the near future.
The geological disclosure in this press release has been reviewed and verified by Northern Vertex's Chief Geologist, Dr. Bob Thompson, PhD P.Eng (a qualified person for the purpose of National Instrument 43-101, Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects).
