GNH: TSX Venture
TORONTO, Aug. 19, 2011 /CNW/ – Golden Hope Mines (TSXV: GNH)(OTCQX: GOLHF) – Golden Hope Mines Limited is pleased to report an update on its Summer 2011 diamond drill campaign in Southeastern Quebec, Canada. The initial program is for 6 holes or approximately 2800 metres.
SGS Canada-Geostat, independent technical advisors to Golden Hope and in close co-operation with the GNH technical team, designed this drilling program to verify past results and to further test the two main zones explored to date; the T1 and T2 zones to depth.
The company has completed 4 of the 6 initial holes and is currently drilling its 5th hole. A table of the holes and the depth of the holes is presented below.
The core from the drill holes undergo a detailed geological and structural logging procedure which are then cut and sampled. The samples are then sent to the laboratory where sample preparation specific for the gold mineralization at Bellechasse-Timmins is completed prior to being assayed.
Of the holes completed to date, Hole BD2011-157 has been logged, cut and sent out for assaying to SGS Minerals Services in Toronto, Ontario.
A map of the proposed drill holes is available on the company’s web site at http://www.goldenhopemines.com/exploration/bellechase_timmins_gold/
Golden Hope Mines is pleased to announce that it has extended its diamond drill campaign by an additional 2000 metres. Golden Hope will continue to use the services of Forages Mercier of Val D’or Quebec.
