Murgor Resources drills more gold below the Golden Arrow deposit and adds second drill to accelerate phase III

KINGSTON, ON, Nov. 3, 2011 /CNW/ - Murgor Resources Inc. (TSXV: MGR) today announced new drill results from drill hole A11-32 of its current drilling program at the Golden Arrow Gold project, located 65 kilometres east of Timmins, Ontario.  The current Phase III drill program is designed to test the Golden Arrow Fault, below the known mineralized zone at depths of up to 450 metres below surface.

Drill hole A11-32 intersected the Main Zone approximately 200 m SW of drill hole A11-31 (14.0 m of 2.51 g/t Au including 8.0 m of 3.30 g/t Au) and over 300 m below and down plunge from the current floor of the open pit at Golden Arrow.  Drill hole A11-32 intersected 15.0 m grading 2.11 g/t Au, including a 6.0 m section grading 3.11 g/t Au (a longitudinal section is attached to this release at www.murgor.com).

"With drill holes 31 and 32, we're taking large step-outs of 200 m and still hitting strong mineralization over mineable widths.  These new intersections are prompting us to add a second drill to the property to accelerate our expansion of the gold resource. Murgor is now starting its third phase of drilling at Golden Arrow.  Another 6,400 m are planned in 11 drill holes." says André Tessier, President and CEO of Murgor Resources.

Since November 2010, Murgor has completed 9,292 m of drilling in 36 drill holes at Golden Arrow.  Last week, Murgor completed its second phase of drilling at Golden Arrow and assays are pending for the last 4 drill holes of the program (drill holes A11-33 to A11-36).  With assay results taking well over one month, due to backlogs at laboratories, Murgor has decided to release significant results as they become available. So far, Phase II of drilling successfully extended the Main Zone to a vertical depth of 325 m, over a minimum strike length of more than 250 m.  The Main Zone remains open in all directions. Murgor's second phase of drilling further discovered two new parallel mineralized zones flanking the Main Zone, one located approximately 100 m to the east and the other 100 m to the west.

To date:

  • The deep extension of the Main Zone returned 52 m of 1.47 g/t Au including zones of 2.26 g/t Au over 18 m and 2.76 g/t Au over 8 m in drill hole A11-31 and 15 m of 2.11 g/t Au, including a section of 6 m of 3.11 g/t Au in drill hole A11-32.
  • The Main Zone also returned intersections of unusually high grade mineralization including two one-metre intervals of 34.9 g/t Au and 20.0 g/t Au.
  • The West Zone is highlighted by intersections of 9.95 g/t Au over 7 m, 6.46 g/t Au over 6 m in drill hole A11-28 and 9.89 g/t Au over 1.5 m in drill hole A11-31.
  • The East Zone is highlighted by a wide intercept of 33.0 m grading 1.48 g/t Au, which includes zones of 2.51 g/t Au over 14.0 m and 3.30 g/t Au over 8 m in drill hole A11-31.

Phase III of drilling is currently underway with the addition of a second drill at the property. Over 6400 m of drilling are planned in 11 drill holes for Phase III in order to further extend the Main Mineralized Gold Zone at vertical depths of over 450 m, while testing the extensions of high-grade gold mineralization in the East and West Gold Zones.  At the same time, an extensive mechanical trenching program is being carried-out by Murgor in an attempt to expose a number of newly identified structures that are parallel to the Golden Arrow Fault and gold mineralization.

The syenite-hosted gold mineralization at Golden Arrow consists of a stockwork of quartz veins and veinlets enclosed in a halo of pink to brick-red potassic alteration with 2-3% disseminated pyrite. This style of gold mineralization is very similar to the syenite-hosted gold mineralization at the Young-Davidson Mine located approximately 50 km south of Golden Arrow where Northgate Minerals Corp. has defined reserves in excess of 2.8M ounces gold at similar grades (Northgate Minerals Corp. 43-101 Technical Report, January 23, 2009, available on SEDAR).  Through drilling, Murgor is currently testing this hypothesis.

About the Golden Arrow Gold Mine

The Golden Arrow property consists of 17 mining patents and leases, and four mining claims covering 723 hectares in Hislop Township and located 65 kilometres east of the City of Timmins in Ontario.  In 1981 and 1982, a total of 279,593 tons of ore was mined at a grade of 0.061 oz/t (2.09 g/t) from the Arrow open pit.  Mining ceased due to low gold prices.

The property was originally explored underground in the 1940's to by the Golden Arrow Mining Company Ltd. who sank a shaft to a depth of 435 ft (130 m) below surface and undertook about 700 m of horizontal development on the 250 ft (76 m) and 400 ft (122 m) levels.

The Golden Arrow property is underlain by mafic flows and syenite intrusions with younger post mineral diabase dikes. Gold mineralization is generally hosted within a syenite intrusion and consists of a stockwork of quartz veinlets situated within a broader halo of pink to brick-red potassic alteration.  Mineralized zones are related to a NE-SW structure associated with the Porcupine-Destor Fault Zone.  The property covers a two-kilometre strike extent of this NE-SW structure.  The Golden Arrow gold deposit is located 9 km SW of the past-producing Ross Gold Mine which produced nearly one million ounces of gold between 1936 and 1989.  Also located in Hislop Twp are the presently producing Hislop Mine of St Andrew Goldfields Ltd. and the Black Fox Mine of Brigus Gold Corp.
