Golden Predator Intersects 52.95m of 2.26 g/t Gold at Bear Paw Zone, Clear Creek Project, Yukon


VANCOUVER, Sept. 28, 2011 /CNW/ - Golden Predator Corp. (TSX:GPD) (the "Company") is pleased to announce results for the first 11 diamond drill holes from its 2011 drilling campaign at its Clear Creek Project. All 11 holes encountered gold mineralization. Of particular interest are the following:

  • 25.5 m of 2.19 g/t gold from a depth of 15.0 m from Hole CC11-043; and
  • 46.5 m of 1.69 g/t gold from a depth of 19.5 m from Hole CC11-049; and
  • 52.95 m of 2.26 g/t gold from a depth of 3.05 m from Hole CC11-051.

"The impressive drill results at Clear Creek illustrate the project's considerable potential, with significant mineralization from multiple zones.  These results, confirm the Company's interpretation of a deposit with good continuity of grade occurring at shallow depths from surface at Bear Paw," said William M. Sheriff, Chairman & CEO.  "We look forward with great anticipation to receipt of the results from the final seven holes from the 2011 drilling at Bear Paw, as we continue to build towards a resource estimate on this advanced, road accessible project."

Clear Creek
The Clear Creek project is located 65 km northwest of Mayo, Yukon, comprises approximately 60 km2 and contains five identified target areas: the Bear Paw, Contact, Saddle, Josephine, and Juno Zones. The Contact Zone is 5.0 km northeast from the Bear Paw Zone (see map). The Clear Creek property is in an active placer mining area that has produced more than 129,000 oz Au (Allen et all, 1999).

The full 2011 diamond drill program consisted of 18 core holes; with 4 having been drilled at the Contact Zone and 14 at the Bear Paw Zone. The Company has also begun compiling and modeling the drill data from previous operators, the Company's 2010 drill program and the 2011 drill results at the Bear Paw Zone, all in anticipation of the preparation of an initial resource estimate on the Bear Paw Zone.

Sampling Methodology, Quality Control and Assurance
The diamond drill holes were drilled by skid mounted drills utilizing HQ3 core sizes (6.35 cm).  Core was cut or split in half; one half was sent to the lab for analysis and the other was retained on site.

The core samples were sent to ALS Minerals' ISO 9001 certified preparation facility in Whitehorse, after which the pulps were analyzed at ALS's ISO 9001 certified laboratory in Vancouver.  At ALS Minerals, values over 10 g/t gold were re-assayed by fire assay followed by a gravimetric finish (with a 50 ppb lower detection limit).

Other elements, including silver (Ag), were analyzed by a 35 elements package (ME-ICP41) whereby the sample is dissolved in an aqua regia acid solution and then analyzed by ICP-AES (Inductively Coupled Plasma - Atomic Emission Spectrometry).  Ag values over 100 g/t were re-assayed by method Ag-OG46, which involves digestion in hydrobromic, nitric, and hydrochloric acids followed by analysis by ICP-AES.  Ag values over 1,500 g/t were re-assayed by method Ag-GRA21 which is a 30 g fire assay with gravimetric finish (5 g/t lower detection limit).

Drilling Sampling Protocol / Chain of Custody / Data Verification
Golden Predator employs high standards of protocol with respect to the handling and chain of custody of its samples.  All sampling is conducted under the supervision of the Company's project geologist, and the chain of custody from the drill to the sample preparation and logging facility is continually monitored by the project geologist. Samples are shipped to the lab by qualified couriers or Company personnel under locked bags with independent identification lock numbers. Data verification of the analytical results includes a statistical analysis of the duplicates, standards and blanks that must pass certain set parameters for acceptance to insure accurate and verifiable results.  All assays are reported as drilled intervals and are not to be interpreted as true widths.
