Prosperity Goldfields Receives Permits for 2011 Drill Program - Drilling to Commence in Early July

VANCOUVER, June 21, 2011 /CNW/ - Prosperity Goldfields Corp. (TSX-V: PPG) (the "Company" or "Prosperity") is pleased to announce it has received all necessary permits needed to proceed with its 2011 drill program at its 100% controlled Kiyuk gold project located in southern Nunavut.  Camp construction will begin immediately and drilling is scheduled to begin around July 10. Approximately 3,500 meters of diamond drilling will test five gold targets.

"Prosperity Goldfields is in an excellent position to now explore its Kiyuk gold project," states Quinton Hennigh, Chief Geologist for Prosperity Goldfields Corp. "Through a protracted permitting process, we have obtained permission to build a camp on site which will allow us to more effectively test our targets this year. In July and August, we plan to drill approximately 3,500 meters testing our five most robust, near-surface gold targets."

About the Kiyuk Gold Project and Drill Targets

Gold at Kiyuk is hosted by a sequence of conglomerates and breccias occurring along an unconformity between two thick sedimentary units, the Hurwitz Supergroup and overlying Kiyuk Group. The Kiyuk sub-basin in which numerous gold showings occur, measures roughly 60 km NE-SW and 35 km NW-SE. Gold mineralization is associated with intense magnetite and albite replacement and displays variable geochemical associations with cobalt, nickel, arsenic and uranium. Assays from a suite of over 500 grab samples from the property include values ranging from below detectable levels to as high as 36 grams per tonne gold.

Five targets will be tested during this program. These include:

  • Gold Point Zone where gold grades from grab samples range from below detectable levels up to 24 grams per tonne in a sequence of heavily magnetite- and albite-altered conglomerates up to 200 meters thick. This zone is at least 400 meters long and open to the NE and SW.

  • Rusty Zone where gold grades from grab samples range from below detectable levels up to 9 grams per tonne in a sequence of strongly albitized conglomerates up to 250 meters thick. This zone is at least 300 meters long and open to the NE and SW.

  • Cobalt Zone where gold grades from grab samples range from below detectable levels up to 16 grams per tonne in a sequence of strongly albitized conglomerates up to 200 meters thick. This zone is at least 700 meters long and open to the NE and SW.

  • North Snake Lake showing where gold grades from grab samples range from below detectable levels up to 36 grams per tonne in a sequence of albitized conglomerates of unknown thickness.

  • Heart Pond showing where gold grades from grab samples range from below detectable levels up to 6 grams per tonne gold in strongly albitized conglomerates of unknown thickness.

These five gold occurrences lie within a belt of gold mineralization as defined by rock chip sampling that is approximately 20 km long and is situated on the SE flank of the Kiyuk sub-basin.

Gold assays were completed by either ALS Minerals, ALS Canada Ltd., Vancouver, using a 30 gram charge fire assay with ICP finish or Activation Laboratories Ltd, Geraldton using a 30 gram charge fire assay with AA finish.

"The acquisition of the exploration permit for the Kiyuk property is a significant positive development for Prosperity Goldfields," comments R. Bruce Duncan, CEO. "It is not often that a junior company gets the opportunity to control and explore a gold system that extends for over 20 kilometres along strike. We are very excited to finally get the opportunity to start our exploration drilling on these five targets within the much larger gold system."
