TORONTO, Nov. 7, 2011 /CNW/ - Canuc Resources Corporation ("Canuc" or the "Company") (TSXV:CDA) is pleased to report on exploration in progress at the Mill Village gold property located outside of Liverpool, Nova Scotia. The property consists of 31 claims (496 hectares) covering former historical producers at the Gold Eagle and Thompson Mines and several other reported gold occurrences associated with quartz veining within the Meguma Terrane of the north-eastern Appalachians.

In the past month, Hudgtec Consulting Limited ("Hudgtec") of Dartmouth Nova Scotia has continued with ground exploration at Mill Village, focusing primarily on prospecting, rock sampling, mapping and select VLF-EM and magnetometer traverses in the northern and central portions of the claim group. In addition to validating and reprocessing prior work conducted by previous explorers on the property, this work has provided a clearer picture of the structural and stratagraphic framework at Mill Village as it may apply to structural controls on gold mineralization.

Several of the reported gold occurrences, historic gold and/or arsenic in soil and areas of interesting quartz boulders and or sulphide mineralization appear to be related to breaks along distinct northeast-trending VLF-EM conductors. Field checks indicate that these breaks are related to lower topographic areas along distinct elevated ridges characterized by abundant angular greywacke subcrop with lesser amounts of black argillite or slatey material.

Initial interpretative work suggests that the breaks are likely related to northwest-trending faults and may contain gold bearing, extensional fissure veins that have been preferentially eroded by southeast advancing glaciers, the dominant erosion pattern seen throughout southern Nova Scotia. Exploration targets have been identified for immediate follow-up work at several locations near the intersection of the breaks and the northeast-trending stratigraphic sequences, the same setting that also hosts the gold bearing, bedded quartz veins at the historic Gold Eagle and Thompson mines.

Future work will consist of grid establishment, soil and till sampling and select areas may also be trenched or test-pitted. Prospecting, mapping and select geophysical traverses outside of the areas visited to date are also planned in the remainder of 2011. The company is also planning to implement an Airborne Light Detection and Ranging "LIDAR" survey in the near future to assist in the definition of the topographic breaks noted above. LIDAR is currently being used by other explorers (NSGold at Mooseland) in the Meguma Terrane to enhance more subtle topographic features related to structure and stratigraphy and hence possible controls on gold mineralization.

"In examining the Mill Village gold project and its past producing gold mines with modern techniques, we are developing a new picture for control of gold mineralization on this property.  Recent successes and developments by Atlantic Gold NL and Acadian Mining Corporation in the Northern part of the Province have led to a renewed interest in the Meguma Terrane and its demonstrated potential.  Exploration efforts on the Mill Village gold project in 2012 will provide more information on this exciting prospect as it applies to this property," stated Gary Lohman, P.Geo President and CEO of Canuc Resources Corp.

Mr. Bruce Hudgins, P. Geo is the designated Qualified Person pursuant to National Instrument 43-101 of the Canadian Securities Administrators for this press release and has reviewed and approved the technical and scientific disclosure contained herein.
