Northern Vertex Announces Phase 1 Drilling Program Intercepts 53.34 Meters Grading 1.10 gpt Gold Eqv; Including 9.14 Meters Grading 3.00 gpt Gold Eqv
VANCOUVER, July 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ – Northern Vertex Capital Inc. (TSX.V:NEE) (“Northern Vertex”) is pleased to announce results from an additional 6 holes of its 27,000
foot drilling program on the Moss Gold-Silver Project situated in the
historic Oatman Mining district in Mohave County, Northwestern Arizona.
The Company reports assays received from holes 16 through 21 demonstrate
the thicknesses and grades encountered are compatible with and build on
historical drill results where 30 to 50 meter intervals of 1+ gram gold
were reported. The current drill results further validate and build on
results reported May 19 and June 22, 2011 for the first 15 holes of the
phase 1 program.
States Northern Vertex Chief Geologist Dr. Bob Thompson, “We are very
pleased with the thicknesses and grades returned from the recent 6
holes of drilling at Moss, including Hole AR-69C (Table below) that
returned 6+ gpt gold equivalent over 13.1 meters. The stockwork system
is robust, and the distribution of gold is proving to be consistent
both along and across its 5,000 ft strike. Importantly, results to date
continue to support the three primary objectives of our current drill
program: to verify, build on and extend the Moss epithermal gold-silver
Phase 1 drill results will be used in conjunction with the 305
historical holes previously drilled on the property between 1982-2008,
to calculate an indicated resource that is NI 43-101 compliant.
