VANCOUVER, May 26 /CNW/ - Golden Predator Corp. (TSX: GPD) (the "Company") is pleased to announce results from the initial nine core holes of its winter 2011 drill program at its Grew Creek Project, Yukon. Eight of these holes have intersected significant mineralization, including 98.3 m of 1.83 g/t gold beginning at a depth of 54.9 m in core hole GC11-271. Core hole GC11-265 was not completed. Results are pending from the final eleven holes of the program.

Overview of the Grew Creek Project

Drilling results received to date confirm the position and orientation of veins and high-grade stockwork zones modeled from historic drill data. These new data fill gaps in the historic drill patterns and extend the known mineralized zones along strike and down dip. The Company is looking forward to receiving the results from the final eleven core holes of the winter 2011 program, which was completed in early May. The drill spacing achieved during this drilling campaign will provide the data necessary to calculate an indicated resource, which the Company is working to complete later this year.

The Grew Creek project is located 32 km southwest of Faro, Yukon. The property's 72 km(2) encompass 363 quartz claims, extending along both sides of the Robert Campbell Highway for approximately 27 km. 2010 drilling results included a discovery at the Carlos Zone, which lies approximately 900 m off of the highway, and power lines traverse the project area.

Sampling Methodology, Quality Control and Assurance

The diamond drill holes were drilled by skid mounted drills utilizing HQ core sizes (6.35 cm). Core was cut or split in half; one half was sent to the lab for analysis and the other was retained on site.

The core samples were sent to ALS Minerals' ISO 9001 certified preparation facility in Whitehorse, after which the pulps were analyzed at ALS's ISO 9001 certified laboratory in Vancouver. Approximately 5% of the pulps were sent for secondary check assays at Stewart Group's Eco Tech laboratory in Kamloops, B.C. Blanks, commercial standards, and duplicate samples were included in each batch. To determine Au levels at the ppb level detection limit of 5-10,000 ppb (5-1000 ppb at Stewart Group), 30 g samples were fire assayed, then digested in aqua regia solution and analyzed by atomic absorption. At Eco Tech, values over 1,000 ppb were re-assayed by fire assay, digested in aqua regia, and then re-analyzed by an atomic absorption instrument (detection limit 0.03 g/t). At ALS Minerals, values over 10 g/t gold were re-assayed by fire assay followed by a gravimetric finish (with a 50 ppb lower detection limit). Additional check-analyses were carried out by the lab, which did not receive the original sample.

Other elements, including silver (Ag), were analyzed by a 35 elements package (ME-ICP41) whereby the sample is dissolved in an aqua regia acid solution and then analyzed by ICP-AES (Inductively Coupled Plasma - Atomic Emission Spectrometry). Ag values over 100 g/t were re-assayed by method Ag-OG46, which involves digestion in hydrobromic, nitric, and hydrochloric acids followed by analysis by ICP-AES. Ag values over 1500 g/t were re-assayed by method Ag-GRA21 which is a 30 g fire assay with gravimetric finish (5 g/t lower detection limit).

Drilling Sampling Protocol / Chain of Custody / Data Verification

Golden Predator employs high-standard protocol with respect to the handling and chain of custody of its samples. All sampling is conducted under the supervision of the Company's project geologist, and the chain of custody from the drill to the sample preparation and logging facility is continually monitored by the project geologist. Samples are shipped to the lab by qualified couriers or Company personnel under locked bags with independent identification lock numbers. Data verification of the analytical results includes a statistical analysis of the duplicates, standards and blanks that must pass certain set parameters for acceptance to insure accurate and verifiable results. All assays are reported as drilled intervals and are not to be interpreted as true widths.
