VANCOUVER, Nov. 3, 2011 /CNW/ - GMV Minerals Inc. (the "Company" or "GMV") (TSX-V: GMV) today announces that assays from
the first 8 diamond drilling holes have not yet intercepted
mineralization warranting follow-up, delineation drilling. However,
intense silica flooding of the drilled rock as well as the presence of
associated favorable silica-pyrite alteration with elevated trace
mineral values indicative of a mineralized hydrothermal system was
discovered on the property, thereby validating the ground and airborne
geophysical methods. The Company is currently conducting additional
drilling and has several other holes pending assay values. Drilling is
presently concentrated one kilometer west of the original holes which
tested a resistivity high with a conductive core. At present Hole 13
is at an approximate depth of 75 meters and a second drill is
completing Hole 12; both rigs are operating on double shifts.
Located just south of the Peter's Mine property of Guyana Goldfields
Ltd. (TSX-"GUY"), the focus of GMV's next drill program is a
significant anomaly identified by the 33,000+ line km airborne
magnetic-radiometric survey. The Peters Mine produced approximately
41,000 ounces gold during the early 1900s and has been the focus of
historic and more recent exploration including seven drill holes
completed by the GGMC in 1968, and 61 drill holes completed by Guyana
Goldfields Ltd. to 1998. Gold mineralization occurs within dilational
parallel and cross-cutting veins and stockwork zones, and in saprolite
(weathered rock) at the contact of greenstones and intrusive rocks.
To the south of the GMV drill target is a newly discovered vein system
now being investigated by Arrowhead Gold Corp. (TSXv-"AWH"). Samples in
excess of 10's of ounces of gold have been collected from quartz veins
by Arrowhead geologists. The GMV drill target is located along a
regionally significant north-south trending fault and deformation zone
which is believed to be the controlling structure between quartz veins
on the Peters Mine to the north and the Arrowhead Gold property to the
south. GMV drilling is planned to test for both vein-type and more
volumetrically significant bulk tonnage mineralization related to
foliation-parallel veining. Initial geophysical interpretation of the
GMV target indicates that the compelling anomaly fits well with the
regional structural picture. The target area which has been the site
of historic mining, is presently being actively mined for alluvial gold
with reported high values common.
