TORONTO, June 5 /CNW/ - Yukon Gold Corporation, Inc. ("Yukon Gold" or the
"Company"), (TSX: YK) (OTCBB: YGDC) (Frankfurt: W8Y) is pleased to announce
that the start of drilling on the Marg deposit is on schedule for June 20th,
and the staking of an additional 18 claims contiguous to the Gram Claims, near
the Mt Hinton Property located in the Tombstone Gold Belt of the Yukon
Territory. Mt. Hinton, is 8km from Keno Hill.
Marg Drilling on Schedule for June start-up
At the Marg deposit, site visits have been made in preparation for the
start of June drilling, as announced in February. The drilling will commence
about June 20th, 2008 with a Zinex A5 B20 diamond drill.
The program will include approximately 2,000 metres of metallurgical
drilling. The results of the metallurgical testing will be used to supplement
the Scoping Study which is currently underway.
An additional 2000 metres of exploratory drilling will target the
westerly extension of the Marg Deposit, coincident with airborne EM
conductors, soil geochemistry anomalies, topographical features and a zinc
vegetation kill zone.
In addition targets are being selected for additional 2008 drilling at
the Jane and Leyla Zones, in geologic and structural environments similar to
the Marg deposit, with associated airborne EM conductors, geochemical
anomalies and alteration in outcrop. The Jane and Leyla zones have the
potential to result in a major resource expansion.
Gram Claims Staking
18 additional claims have been staked adjacent to the Gram claims,
originally staked in 2006. Airborne Geophysical work on Mt Hinton and the Gram
claims in 2007 identified a magnetic low anomaly on the Gram claims that
extended off the property, that has now been staked. In the Yukon magnetic low
anomalies have been known to be associated with gold mineralization.
