MONTREAL, Sept. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – Colt Resources Inc. (“Colt” or
the “Company”) (TSXV: GTP) (FRA: P01) (OTCQX: COLTF) is pleased to
announce that it has received final analytical results for two diamond
drill holes from its ongoing drilling campaign aimed at discovering and
delineating satellite tungsten resources near its Tabuaco tungsten
project (Sao Pedro das Aguias), located in the Company’s wholly owned
Armamar Meda concession in northern Portugal.
These drill holes include hole DHT-71 at the northern zone of the
recently discovered Aveleira tungsten deposit, which is located
approximately 700m north of the delineated resource at Tabuaco (Figure
1) and hole DHT-72, the first exploration hole to be drilled to test
the soil geochemical anomalies detected in the gap between the Tabuaco
(Sao Pedro das Aguias) tungsten resource and the Aveleira discovery
The results for these drill holes are highlighted as follows:

* True Width was determined assuming the mineralization has an average
strike of 315 and an average dip of -20
At Aveleira the results of hole DHT-71 confirm the extension of the
skarn tungsten deposit for a strike length of at least 200 metres in
the NW-SE direction (Figures 1 and 2). Step-out drilling has already
been initiated across strike, to determine the lateral extent of the
deposit, which is thought to dip gently into the mountain and
underneath the granite outcrop, in a similar style to Tabuaco (Sao
Pedro das Aguias).
Drilling progress at Aveleira has been slow to date due to the small
conventional drill rig. In order to boost the evaluation drilling of
the Aveleira discovery, Colt has signed a contract with Portuguese
drilling contractor Geocontrole, who has already brought one additional
rig to the Aveleira program, and will bring another in early September.
The newly discovered, non-outcropping skarn tungsten horizon evidenced
by hole DHT-72 in the gap between the Tabuaco resource and the Aveleira
discovery is another exploration success for Colt at the Tabuaco
tungsten project. It indicates that additional, hidden tungsten
deposits can be found in the Tabuaco project area, and demonstrates
that modern exploration based on soil geochemistry, followed by
drilling, can be successful in locating additional mineralization.
The skarn discovered by hole DHT-72 is located 150 metres North of the
Tabuaco (Sao Pedro das Aguias) resource area. Follow-up drilling to
DHT-72 has already been initiated in order to outline the extent of
this skarn horizon.
Additionally, in the Tabuaco-Aveleira gap, there are several other soil
geochemical anomalies which will be drill tested by Colt in the near
Nikolas Perrault, President and CEO of Colt, stated, “Continued successful drilling at our Aveleira discovery reinforces our
belief that this location may host a hidden deposit similar to Tabuaco.
With hole DHT-71, we have confirmed a significant strike length. Our
Aveleira drill program will now concentrate on drilling up-slope so as
to test lateral extent into the mountain as occurs at Tabuaco. Our new
discovery of hidden mineralization in the Tabuaco-Aveleira gap
strengthens our conviction that tungsten mineralization is hosted in
skarn horizons along the mountain side that have been offset locally by
post mineral faults.”
Quality Assurance / Quality Control (QA/QC)
Sample intervals are reported as both metres (m) downhole and as true
thickness, which have been calculated by Colt Resources using
cross-sectional interpretation of the mineralized intercepts in three
dimensions. The actual dip of the skarn controlled mineralization is
All drill core is transported by Company personnel from drill site to a
nearby secure storage facility for logging and sampling. Sampling
intervals are defined after core logging and determination of scheelite
content by examination under short wave UV light. One half of the core
is sent for analysis, while the other half is retained in the core
boxes for future reference.
Samples are sent by courier to ALS Laboratory Group, Seville, Spain.
Samples are analyzed for W and Sn using a metaborate fusion followed by
XRF. Assay results for tungsten are reported by the laboratory as W%.
WO(3) values are calculated using a conversion factor of 1.2611.
A set of standards, duplicates and blanks is inserted by Colt into the
sample stream on a regular basis in addition to the laboratory’s own
internal QA/QC standards and duplicates. QA/QC results to date are well
within the accepted norm.
