TORONTO, May 19 /CNW/ - Golden Hope Mines (TSXV: GNH)(OTCQX: GOLHF) is
pleased to announce an initial 2500 metre exploration diamond drill
campaign on it Bellechasse-Timmins gold property in southeastern
The company will drill a total of 7 holes. 5 holes will test the
southwest extension of the T1 and T2 zones. There is limited historic
and recent drilling that tests the southwestern extensions of these
zones, most done prior to 1992. Two holes will be drilled between the
T1 Zone and the newly discovered northeastern extension of the T1 Zone
as announced in the May 18th, 2011 press release.
The initial exploration campaign will permit the company to continue its
quest to significantly expand the known mineralized zones while it
works towards completing its preparation of a definition drill campaign
at T1 and T2.
On April 19, 2011, the company announced the engagement of SGS Canada
Inc.-Geostat in order to help the company prepare a 3D block model.
Once this model is completed, the company along with SGS will look to
prepare a definition drill campaign on the T1 and T2 zones. The zones
remain open on strike to the northeast, southwest and to depth.
The company will continue to use Forage Mercier Inc. of Val-d'Or, Quebec
as its drill contractors.
A map of the drill holes can be found on the company's web site at www.goldenhopemines.com/exploration/bellechase_timmins_gold/ or may be obtained by contacting the company directly at 514-750-8218.
