257 Huantajaya Samples Return an Average Grade of 68 g/t Ag and 0.90 % Cu



    Symbol: SAO TSX-V

    VANCOUVER, June 11 /CNW/ - Samba Gold Inc. (the Company) (TSX-V:SAO) is
pleased to announce the results of 257 additional channel samples collected at
its Cu-Ag Huantajaya Project in northern Chile.
    The project comprises 624 hectares and comprises the core of the historic
Huantajaya silver district. It is located at low elevation near the city of
Iquique, within a few kilometers of a paved highway, the regional power grid
and all basic infrastructure requirements.
    The Huantajaya district has been mined historically since the mid-1500's
and was for several centuries one of the most productive silver districts in
what was then southern Peru. The focus of previous mining was silver veins in
an igneous intrusive sill and in underlying and adjacent sedimentary rocks.
Historically, the veins were mined in the secondary enrichment zone above the
water table and were extremely rich. Virtually all the original bonanza ores
are now believed to be exhausted. At least two dozen widely distributed deep
shafts on the property and many large waste dumps attest to the intensity of
previous mining activity. No modern exploration has been conducted in the
district and no evidence of previous drilling has been encountered.
    The Company is currently continuing with its initial reconnaissance
program of systematic assay sampling of all surface showings and accessible
underground workings in order to define the full extent and grade of both
copper and silver mineralization. Copper and silver occur together in veins in
both the intrusive and adjacent sediments, and perhaps more importantly as
broad disseminations (replacements or stockworks) locally within the
sediments. An initial suite of 277 channel samples collected in three general
areas on the property was reported in a press release dated May 25, 2007. An
additional 257 samples are reported here
(http://files.newswire.ca/606/Samba-map.JPG). The samples were analysed for
total copper, acid-soluble copper, silver, lead and zinc by ICP method, with
over-limit ICP results re-assayed by atomic absorption. All analyses were all
carried out at ALS Laboratory, North Vancouver.
    The samples were taken from four levels of the Santa Cruz mine,
representing a depth from surface of 188 meters, a vertical range of
106 meters and an on-strike length of 200 meters. Drifts following the
principal vein at Santa Cruz shaft are much more extensive along strike to
both east and west, but are currently inaccessible to sampling. The samples
were taken from several northeasterly-trending veins and also from a
north-trending crosscut on Level 1.
    Some 15 of the total 257 samples were taken from a separate zone referred
to as Pit No. 5, located 370 meters southeast of Santa Cruz shaft. Here,
another northeast-trending vein has been traced and sampled over a distance of
70 meters along strike. For location of the Santa Cruz shaft and other sample
locations, please refer to a Google Earth image and a summary map of
Huantajaya property showing shafts, tunnels, pits and areas sampled, both
available on the Company's website at www.resourceexploration.com.

    
    Highlights of the assay results are as follows:

    1.  Average grade of the Santa Cruz veins is 71 gpt Ag, 0.41% Pb,
        0.28% Zn, 1.05% total Cu and 0.94% soluble Cu

    2.  The vein at Pit No.5 averages 19 gpt Ag, 0.20% Pb, 0.43% Zn, 1.28%
        total Cu and 1.23% soluble Cu over an average width of 1.4 meters.

    3.  Average grade of all 257 assay samples is 68 g/t Ag, 0.29% Pb,
        0.27% Zn, 1.00% total Cu, 0.90% acid-soluble Cu.
    

    Initial testwork on acid solubility of 25 selected oxide copper samples
conducted by N. A. Degerstrom Inc. of Spokane, Washington reported acid
consumptions ranging between 111 and 840 kg of acid per metric ton of
copper-bearing rock. The high acid consumption is due to the presence of
carbonates within the sedimentary strata hosting the veins and replacements.
    Exploration is ongoing to identify near-surface areas of copper oxides
not associated with carbonate-bearing strata and to evaluate the bulk silver
potential of the deposit above the water table. Additionally, drilling plans
are being drawn up to test the primary copper-silver potential of the deposit
below the water table at roughly 200 meters depth.
