Consolidated Goldfields Drills 6.1 Meters of 1.21 gpt Gold at the Fisher Canyon Project

RENO, Nev.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Consolidated Goldfields Corp. ("Consolidated" or the "Company") (OTCQX: CDGF) is pleased to announce drill results from its Fisher Canyon project, Pershing County, Nevada, which have confirmed areas of gold mineralization. Drilling highlights include:

  • Hole FC12-10: 16.5 meters of 0.46 grams per tonne (gpt) gold, including 6.1 meters of 1.21 gpt
  • Hole FC12-9: 22.5 meters of 0.15 gpt gold
  • 9 of the 11 holes drilled encountered zones of anomalous gold mineralization

The company completed 933 meters of reverse-circulation drilling which included 11 holes that were all taken to anticipated depths of up to 100 meters. Drilling at Fisher Canyon continues to confirm and expand upon historic drill results. Step out holes have been successful in identifying new extensions to the current gold mineralization, and the Company has identified nearby targets that warrant additional drilling.

In addition, an area of high grade gold values (from 2.52 to 39.30 gpt, please refer to press release dated October 9, 2012) discovered this year by surface geochemical sampling will be tested in the next round of exploration both by drilling and trenching. The shallow nature of the mineralization will insure a thorough exploration effort and good drill hole density at low cost. Table 1 lists the detailed results of the 11 holes drilled in the 2012 exploration program.
