TORONTO, July 24 /CNW/ - Yukon Gold Corporation, Inc. ("Yukon Gold" or
the "Company"), (TSX: YK) (OTCBB: YGDC) (Frankfurt: W8Y) is pleased to
announce the start of exploration drilling on the Marg deposit.
Based on an analysis of the Resource Estimate of June 30, 2008 (see Press
Release July 9): Yukon Gold believes that there is potential for extensions of
higher grade mineralization in at least two locations. Initially, 2 holes are
planned following the trend of thicker intersections of the D and C horizons
in the eastern portion of the deposit. A third hole is possible in this area.
Drilling will also follow up the higher-grade mineralization and mineable
widths in drill hole M-100 in the western extreme of the deposit. (see press
release of December 5, 2007) The mineralization in hole M-100, which occurs at
relatively shallow depths, is open down dip and for up to 300 metres on
strike, was located only last year; an indication of the potential for further
exploration in the immediate deposit area.
Success in developing a higher-grade westerly extension of the deposit
may result in a significant resource expansion.
Targets are still being developed west of the current limits of drilling,
west of the airstrip.
Metallurgical Drilling completed
Drilling of 1,907 metres in six holes for metallurgical test work has
been completed and samples have been shipped to G&T Metallurgical Services in
Kamloops B.C. The metallurgical test work will permit the inclusion of more
accurate estimates of recovery for each metal which may result in a revision
of the NSR values used for the June 30th Resource Estimate.
