Follow-up Drilling On 0.413 oz Au/ton Drill Intercept Starts at Miranda Gold's Angel Wing Project
VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Miranda Gold Corp. ("Miranda") (TSX-V: MAD) is pleased to announce that Ramelius Resources Ltd. ("Ramelius") (ASX:RMS), our funding partner at Angel Wing, has started follow-up drilling to further test high-grade gold mineralization of 5 ft (1.5 m) of 0.413 oz Au/ton (14.15 g Au/t) in hole AW12-06 completed in August (see August 30, 2012 press release). The mineralization is associated with an annular magnetic anomaly 1,200 ft (400 m) in diameter and is the best gold intercept at Angel Wing. Ramelius plans to drill approximately 3,500 ft (1,067 m) in three reverse-circulation holes. This will be the third and final phase of drilling for the 2012 year. Ramelius also plans to file a Plan of Operations which will allow for an expanded drill program in 2013. Angel Wing is an epithermal vein and sediment-hosted gold project in northeast Elko County, Nevada.
Angel Wing currently has seven gold target areas identified by geologic mapping of quartz-calcite veins with distinctive "angel wing" textures, rock and soil geochemistry, and geophysics. To date, Ramelius has drill-tested six of the target areas with a total of 29 holes aggregating 14,941 ft (4,554 m).
All data disclosed in this press release, including sampling, analytical and test data, have been reviewed and verified by Vice President of Exploration Joseph Hebert, C.P.G., B.Sc. Geology and Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.
