Golden Dawn and Hi Ho Silver Jointly Plan Titan Geophysical Survey on the Royal Attwood, Greenwood, British Columbia, CanadaBy Golden Dawn Minerals Inc., PRNE
Thursday, December 16, 2010
VANCOUVER, December 17, 2010 - Golden Dawn Minerals Inc. ("the Company") has signed an agreement to
option 50% of its interest in the Royal Attwood Property to Hi Ho Silver
Resources Inc. ("Hi Ho") (CSNX: HHS, Frankfurt: H9T). In order to earn the
50% interest in the Royal Attwood, Hi Ho must pay the Company $143,750 in
cash, issue 1,000,000 shares of Hi Ho, and complete work commitments of
$862,500 in a structured timetable within 3 years from the start of the
agreement. The Company maintains 50% interest and Hi Ho will act as operator.
The Royal Attwood property is located in the Greenwood Mining District of
southern British Columbia (BC) Canada, 8 km west of the community of Grand
Forks BC, close to electric power. It is situated in readily accessible
terrain including by road, year round. The Greenwood mining camp has a
history of gold, silver, and copper production dating from the 1880's,
including the prolific Phoenix Mine (now closed) located 5 km to the north
and which processed 27 million tonnes of ore grading 1.3 g/t gold with 0.8%
The Royal Attwood claims consist of around 1800 ha of highly prospective
ground showing wide-ranging gold and copper geochemical anomalies in soils
and stream sediments. This coupled with known induced polarization (I.P.)
targets coincident with recently delineated airborne TEM and MAG highs
provides an exciting area for mineral exploration.
To further delineate drill targets the company is pleased to announce the
undertaking of a Quantec Geosciences' Titian 24 geophysical survey that will
be performed in January 2011. The Titan measures the parameters of DC
(resistivity), IP (chargeability) and MT (magnetotelluric resistivity), and
is described by Quantec as the "leading deep search ground geophysical method
worldwide. In mineral exploration (grassroots exploration and brownfields
exploration), the system images conductive mineralization, disseminated
mineralization, alteration, structure and geology to 700 meters and beyond,
for reliable and cost-effective targeting of drill holes to depth. These
depths and multi-parameter data make the system the best option available for
obtaining subsurface pre-drilling information related to geologic structure
and for the direct detection of mineral deposits any where in the world".
Recent Quantec clients with similar copper-gold targets have been right here
in British Columbia at such notable sites as the Copper Mountain project at
Princeton, Northgate's Kemess Project, and Teck's Highland Valley projects.
The strong geochemical response for gold in both soil and stream
sediments covers much of the property, and is of a magnitude seldom
encountered in surface materials. A broad distribution of soil samples over
an area 2000m by 2000m yields gold values in excess of 200 ppb (0.2
grams/tonne gold). The geochemical data is historical in nature and has not
been verified in the field. This zone has never been effectively drill
tested, and the Titan 24 survey will assist in selection of drill targets for
the 2011 drilling season.
There are no mineral resources on the property, and there can be no
assurance that any mineral resource will be discovered, and if discovered
there can be no assurance that any minerals may be economically extracted.
