Mineral Mountain Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:MMV - News; “Mineral Mountain” or the “Company”) is pleased to report that it has launched an aggressive exploration program consisting of grid line cutting (completed), geological mapping (completed) and have signed a consulting agreement with JVX Ltd. to complete a 20-kilometre induced polarization survey over the Golden Sylvia Zone. The Golden Sylvia Zone is a 200m wide gold-bearing iron formation within the Copper Hill Main Block (“Main Block”). Mineral Mountain entered into an Option Agreement with Golden Harp Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:GHR - News; “Golden Harp”) to earn a 60% interest in Golden Harp’s 100%-owned, 90 km2 Main Block gold property situated in Macmurchy Township in the Shining Tree Mining Camp in August, 2010.
The Copper Hill gold property adjoins the western boundaries of Goldeye Explorations’ (GGY.TSX-V) Tyrrell Twp. gold property and Benton Resources’ (BTC.TSX-V) Block A and is physically located approximately 7 km southwest of the new Minto gold discovery where, in a news release dated August 9, 2010, Creso Exploration Inc. (CXT.TSX-V) reported three impressive high grade gold drill intersections of 82.5 metres of 13.3 grams per tonne Au, 65.7 metres of 18.2 grams per tonne Au and 79.6 metres of 4.61 grams per tonne Au (drill hole MC-09-01) in the Shining Tree gold district.
The Main Block property covers two historic gold occurrences including the Copper Hill Zone and the Golden Sylvia Gold Zone and represents one of the largest prospective land packages in the Shining Tree Mining Camp including a total of approximately 504 claims units (91 claims). The property encompasses a north-westerly trending package of Archean rocks that host a variety of favourable geological settings prospective for gold. At least three significant regional gold bearing faults up to 20 km in strike length trend through the project and, as are interpreted to represent the western extension of the Cadillac-Larder Lake Break. The Golden Sylvia Gold Zone, which lies near the eastern limits of the project area, is a partially defined, gold-rich banded iron formation that is open in all directions and represents a near surface bulk tonnage gold zone measuring 450 m in length by 200 m in width which has been drill tested to shallow depths of a little more than 100 m. Some of the better intersections include 2.57 grams per tonne over 14.23 metres (Hole DDHGS12) and 3.56 grams per tonne over 12.24 metres (Hole RCGS23).
