Guyana Frontier Reports Drilling Results from Favourable Lake Project
VANCOUVER, June 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ – Guyana Frontier Mining Corp. (“Guyana
Frontier”, formerly known as Shoreham Resources Ltd.) is pleased to
announce the results of a diamond drilling program on the Borland Lake
target area at the Favourable Lake Project in Ontario, Canada. The
Favourable Lake Project, located approximately 200 kilometres north of
Red Lake, Ontario, is a joint venture between Guyana Frontier, which
holds a 70.3% interest, and Gold Canyon Resources Inc., which holds a
The 2011 drilling program successfully achieved the objective of testing
a historical silver mineralized zone, last drilled by a previous
operator in 1987. Two holes totaling 236 metres were completed from the
ice of Borland Lake, targeting the location of the mineralized zone as
interpreted from filed assessment reports, and from the interpreted
results of Guyana Frontier’s 2008 Titan 24 geophysical survey.
Mineralized intervals from the 2011 drilling program are presented in
Table 1 below.

(Cut offs for averaged samples were 10.0 grams per tonne silver, or in
the absence of significant silver values, 0.5 grams/tonne gold. The
values reported herein reflect re-assaying with assay standards
certified for the range of gold values reported in hole B-11-02).
Hole B-11-01 encountered silver, gold, lead and zinc mineralized veinlets,
disseminated sulphides and breccias from 76.8 to 90.8 metres within
siliceous metagreywacke and quartzite rocks, and in two other
mineralized intervals between 92.1 and 108.9 metres downhole. Sulphides
containing argentite (a silver-bearing, halide mineral) were noted in
the core, with accompanying sphalerite, pyrrhotite and pyrite. The
estimated true width of the mineralized interval was 7.7 metres (25.26
feet), which averaged 291 grams/tonne (8.49 ounces per ton) silver,
including 365 grams/tonne (10.65 oz/ton) silver over 6.08 metres (19.94
feet). Minor values of gold, lead and zinc were also encountered.
Hole B-11-02 was collared approximately 84 metres from Hole B-11-01 and intersected
mineralized zones at downhole depths of 23.8 to 64.5 metres, and from
67.7 to 73.7 metres. Mineralization was again observed within siliceous
metagreywacke and quartzite rocks with notably higher silver and gold
values than were seen in B-11-01, averaging 99 grams/tonne (2.89
oz/ton) silver and 1.03 grams/tonne gold over an estimated true width
of 30.53 metres (100.14 feet), which included 285 grams/tonne (8.3
oz/ton) silver and 1.63 grams/tonne (0.05 oz/ton) gold over 8.53 metres
(27.98 feet), and 438 grams/tonne (12.78 oz/ton) silver and 2.99
grams/tonne gold (0.09 oz/ton) over 4.6 metres (15.1 feet).Â Pegmatites
were observed cutting through the mineralized zones, from 64.5 to 66.24
metres, for example.
A review of the results and re-examination of the 2011 drill core has
prompted Guyana Frontier to complete additional sampling to potentially
extend the intervals of mineralized material.Â The results from this
additional sampling will be reported when available. Guyana Frontier is
also testing selected core samples from the 2011 drilling program for
bulk resistivity/conductivity response to better interpret the results
of the 2008 Titan 24 survey geophysical survey. The integration of
geophysical and geological information gained in the last three years
is expected to generate high-priority drill targets for the 2012 winter
Core samples were collected by diamond saw cutting and transmitted in
secure custody to Activation Laboratories Ltd.’s preparation facility
in Red Lake, Ontario. They were subject to fire assay pre-concentration
and AA finish to determine gold concentrations, gravimetric finish to
confirm gold values exceeding 1000 parts per billion and silver values
exceeding 100 ppm,Â total (four acid) digestion and assay for lead,
zinc, and copper followed by ICP analysis for a suite of 36 elements.
NOTE: Conversion factor for grams per tonne to troy ounces per short ton
are grams/tonne divided by 34.2857, or grams/tonne multiplied by
0.0292. One metre = 3.28 feet.
