Tyhee reports excellent gold values from recent drilling on Nicholas Lake and Clan Lake properties



    TSX Venture: TDC

    VANCOUVER, Sept. 4 /CNW/ - Tyhee Development Corp. (TSX-V:TDC) today
released results for drillholes that were recently completed on the Nicholas
Lake and Clan Lake Zones Yellowknife area, Northwest Territories, Canada.

    
    Highlighted intersections from the recent program:

    Nicholas Lake Zone:
        -  Drillhole N114:      -  10.5 metres (m) of 7.58 grams per ton
                                   (gpt) gold including 4.5 m of 16.96 gpt
                                   gold; and
                                -  4.6 m of 3.06 gpt gold.
    Clan Lake Main Zone:
        -  Drillhole CL119:     -  6.3 m of 4.35 gpt gold including 4.0 m of
                                   6.54 gpt gold;
                                -  3.0 m of 12.75 gpt gold;
        -  Drillhole CL120:     -  20.7 m of 2.65 gpt gold including 10.0 m
                                   of 4.36 gpt gold; and
                                -  14.8 m of 2.22 gpt gold including 8.2 m of
                                   3.10 gpt gold
    

    The Main Zone has been traced on surface and in drillholes for over 130 m
and varies between 20 and 30 m in width.
    "The latest results from Nicholas Lake that were drilled to the east of
the known resource show that mineralization, which on the surface appears to
be terminated to the east, is in fact still open at depth," said Dr. D.R.
Webb, President & CEO of Tyhee. "At Clan Lake we are intersecting significant
gold mineralization beyond the limits of the Main Zone, suggesting additional
zones occur in the area, or that the Main Zone is potentially larger than
expected."
    Most of the gold-bearing intercepts have returned low silver values of
less than 2 gpt. However, drillhole CL119 returned 16.9 gpt silver over 6.3 m
from 71.5 m down hole including 22.9 gpt silver over 4.0 m. CL121 returned
23.4 gpt silver over 6.6 m from 111.3 m down hole.
    Maps that show the drillhole locations can be found at www.tyhee.com.
    Diamond drilling is continuing with one drill active on the Clan Lake
Main Zone. Drilling on the Goodwin Lake Main Zone was completed in August and
the drill moved to Nicholas Lake to test geophysical targets for the potential
extension of the Main Zone. This drilling was completed recently, and the
drill has been moved back to camp on the Yellowknife Gold Project. Assays are
pending on Clan Lake, Goodwin Lake and Nicholas Lake.

    REVIEWED BY QUALIFIED PERSON, QUALITY CONTROL, AND REPORTS

    Tyhee completed fire assays on drill core samples using 30 gram aliquots
with ICP-ES finish for gold analyses, prepared at Acme Analytical Laboratories
Ltd. in Yellowknife, and finished at Acme Analytical Laboratories Ltd in
Vancouver. A semi-quantitative multi-element analysis is run on 0.5 gm aliquot
samples leached in a hot aqua regia solution and measured using ICP-ES
techniques. Tyhee conducts a rigorous QA/QC program of inserting blanks and
duplicates in the field and standards in the laboratory. The laboratory also
conducted their own independent QA/QC program including inserting their own
standards and rerunning samples from pulped material and reject material.
These results were provided to Tyhee. All standards, duplicates, blanks and
check assays returned acceptable results. Mr. V.V. Pratico P.Geol., the
designated QP within the meaning of NI 43-101, has reviewed this release and
approves of its content.
