Aldrin Resource Corp., is pleased to announce the results of a recent soil sample survey completed on the Company's Keystone property optioned from Ryanwood Exploration Ltd. (Ryanwood) of Dawson City, Yukon Territory. The property is located in the active Mayo mining district approximately 10-kilometers south of the community of Keno. The claim block is comprised of 224 quartz mining claims which cover approximately 45 square kilometers.
The recent results add to work completed by Ryanwood over the past four years and assays received from the 2009 field season add to the size of the gold anomaly initially identified by Ryanwood. Soil sample assay results define a large gold target measuring approximately 3 kilometers in length and as much as 1500 meters wide. All soil samples were collected by Ryanwood and analyzed by Acme Labs in Vancouver, BC.
Assay results from over 1,050 soil samples collected on a grid pattern returned high average anomalous gold values including several over 1 gram per tonne. Within the large anomaly is a zone measuring 400-meters long by 100-meters wide that averages 328 ppb gold.
Additional encouraging results are the presence of very high arsenic and antimony values that are coincident with the large gold anomaly. Arsenic and antimony in soils are key indicator elements associated with gold mineralization in the Dawson and Keno Hill mining districts. Results returned anomalous arsenic and antimony indicator element values up to 10,000 ppm arsenic and 2,000 ppm antimony with high average anomalous values.
Results from the 2009 soil sampling program expanded the central zone and identified two new mineralized zones which contain high anomalous gold, arsenic and antimony values including one sample reporting 2.5 grams of gold per tonne.
The Company is finalizing exploration plans for the 2010 field season that will focus on diamond core drilling the Keystone project in addition to drilling two other projects in the Dawson area under option to the Company. The Company is planning on drilling approximately 3,000 meters in 30 drill holes on the Keystone property.
President and CEO Johnathan More states, The 2009 results from the Keystone project coupled with earlier exploration efforts by Ryanwood Exploration have identified a large mineralized area with potential for discovery of a gold resource.
