Vancouver, Canada (ots/PRNewswire) - Ross River Minerals Inc.
(TSX-V: RRM) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has
received additional assays and analyses for the first five of nine
drill holes from its wholly owned Tay-LP property in the Yukon
Additional analyses were received for holes TLP04-01 and TLP04-02.
Hole TLP04-01 returned a distance weighted average of 0.982 g/t gold
over 19.6 metres (77.40 - 97.00m). This includes an interval of 3.4
metres which has been fire assayed and contains 3.18 g/t gold. Hole
TLP04-02, 50 metres south of TLP04-01, returned 3.92 g/t gold over
10.47 metres (60.55 - 71.02m) which includes two intervals of 11.56
g/t gold over 1 metre and 11.45 g/t gold over 2 metres respectively.
A previous announcement reported 6.32 g/t gold over 6.07 metres
(63.70 - 69.77m) from this hole which increased after fire assay to
6.47 g/t gold. Hole TLP04-03, located 340 metres south of TLP04-01,
returned a distance weighted average of 0.70 g/t gold over 5.5 metres
(59.57 - 65.12m). Hole TLP04-04, located in a second target area
approximately 1,300 metres south of TLP04-01, returned 3.10 g/t gold
over 11 metres (58.45 - 69.45m), including three intervals of 11.34
g/t gold over 0.38m, 6.42 g/t gold over 1.02 metres and 13.00 g/t
gold over 1.08 metres respectively. Hole TLP04-05, drilled at -70
degrees from the same location as TLP04-04, returned 1.66 g/t gold
over 3.21 m (62.27 - 65.48m) and a second interval of 2.00 g/t gold
over 10.52 metres (69.64 - 79.79m). This interval includes 6.93 g/t
gold over 1 metre and 4.12 g/t gold over 1.02 metres.
Ross River is encouraged by the continuity of quartz-sulphide vein
mineralisation over the 1,300 metres of the drilled structure that
has been analysed to date. Of potentially greater significance is
replacement style mineralisation intersected in eight of the nine
drill holes. The gold bearing replacement pyrrhotite-pyrite-silica
mineralisation (from 2 to 30 metres width intersected in drill holes
to date) dips towards the inferred source intrusive of Cretaceous age
1.0 to 1.5 kilometres to the west. These replacement style
mineralisation intersections point to a significant gold target of
approximately 1.3 kilometres by 1.0 to 1.5 kilometres in size.
An additional 112 samples from mineralised intervals from holes
TLP04-6 to TLP04-09 are currently being analyzed. Results from these
holes will be announced when they are received. Uwe Schmidt, P.Geo.,
is the qualified person supervising this project.
Assays were carried out by Acme Analytical Laboratories Ltd.,
Vancouver, BC. Halved core samples were routinely analysed for 30
elements including gold by ICP-MS. Any sample that contained greater
than 300 ppb gold was routinely re-assayed using fire assay with
ICP-ES finish. Standard and blank samples have been routinely added
as checks of the analytical procedures. To find out more about Ross
