Hudson River Provides Exploration Update on Glenrock Gold Property


TORONTO, Feb. 9 /CNW/ - Hudson River Minerals Ltd. ("Hudson River") (TSX-V:HRM) is pleased to provide an exploration update on its 100% owned Glenrock Gold Property located 70 km north of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario.

A high resolution magnetic and radiometric helicopter survey was completed in November 2010 and the final data has now been received and is being integrated into a geological compilation that includes previous sampling, trenching, drilling, assaying and surface mapping.

The Glenrock Property contains three known gold showings known as STP, Bjornaa and Glenrock. All three showings have been previously drilled and all returned anomalous gold in drillcore. At the STP showing, for example, hole 88-03 intersected 1.91 gpt Au and 3.06% Cu over 6.21 m starting at 86.1 m downhole. At the Glenrock Showing, drillhole AR97-08 intersected 1.34 gpt Au over 13.7 m starting at 103.8 m downhole. The intersection is open along strike and at depth. Two other nearby drillholes contained higher grades over shorter intervals; 1.97 gpt Au in AR97-14 over 2.0 m starting at 78.0 m downhole and located 100 m east of AR97-08 and 1.99 gpt Au in AR97-11 over 0.13 m starting at 67.3 m downhole and located 275 m east of AR97-08. The three intersections appear to form part of the same mineralized trend that plunges to the west and increases in width where it remains open along strike and at depth.

Hudson River is planning a 2,000 m drill program to test for extensions to these previously discovered drill intersections. An exploration grid baseline is currently being cut and the drill program will begin in late February 2011. Once the Glenrock compilation is complete this information will be made available on the Company's web-site.
