Sable Resources intersects 1.19 oz per ton gold and 8.24 oz per ton silver over 4 meters width in the Creek zone drift at the Shasta Mine.

    VANCOUVER, Dec. 4 /CNW/ - Sable Resources Limited (TSX.V: SAE) "Sable"
has intersected high grade material in the Creek zone at their 100% owned
Shasta Mine.
    The Creek zone consists of a broad stockwork zone with low to moderate
grade gold and silver content, along with shoots of high grade breccia in the
footwall of the west bounding structure of the zone. A 4 meter wide, 3 meter
high drift is being driven along the structure to explore the grade of this
zone, and in the first 11 m has encountered an average grade of 0.454 ounces
per ton gold, and 7.56 ounces per ton silver. Included in this, is a 3 meter
long, 4 meter wide interval grading 1.19 ounces per ton gold and 8.24 ounces
per ton silver. Samples consist of fines collected from the blasted workings,
and were assayed in the Company's onsite fire assay lab along with known
standards and blanks for quality control. Check assays have been sent to an
independent assayer to confirm values obtained by the Company.
    Company CEO Mel Rahal stated "When we made the decision to go into the
Creek zone, we were expecting more modest grades of 0.2 ounces of gold per
ton, and 5 to 10 ounces per ton silver over good mining widths of 5 to 10
meters based on our previous drill results. What we are encountering
underground is better than expected, and very encouraging. If we can continue
to encounter this high grade material early on, it will allow us to start the
mill with strong cash flow, and fund capital improvements and expansion out of
    The Company will continue to stockpile mineralized material for
processing at the nearby Baker mill facility while it completes the planned
access decline to the 1220 level.
