Drilling Report

For immediate release

8th January  2009

 

 

Chaarat Gold Holdings Ltd

 

("Chaarat" or "the Company")

 

Chaarat Gold Holdings Ltd (AIM:CGH) reports  significant mineralised intersections in the C4600 and C4000 Project Areas at the Chaarat Gold Property

 

Road Town, Tortola, British Virgin Islands (8th January 2009).

 

Chaarat (the Company) is pleased to announce additional encouraging drilling results from the C4600 and C4000 Project Areas on the Contact Zone at its 100% held, 604 square kilometres, Chaarat gold property in the Kyrgyz Republic. The Chaarat property had, at the end of 2007, an audited JORC indicated and inferred resource of 3.14 Moz at 4.41 g/t Au. During 2008 the Company carried out 14,000 meters of drilling. The results of the 2008 have all been received and a revised resource statement is being prepared by SRK and is expected to be released in early 2009.  

It is expected that these drilling results along with the other drilling results already published during 2008 will add significantly to the current resource of 3.14 million ounces as well as improve the average grade of the resource.

 

Highlights

 

Drill hole C461        4.42m    at    4.40 g/t  Au

Drill hole C464      17.97m    at    6.21 g/t  Au

Drill hole C464        3.27m    at  16.01 g/t  Au

 

The two drill holes highlighted here are excerpts from the latest three surface exploration drill holes (two on the C4600 Project Area and one on the C4000 Project Area), which have been drilled recently and for which results have been received. The C4600 & C4000 Project Areas (which together form a part of the Contact Zone), on which a JORC indicated and inferred resource of 230,000 ounces at an average grade of 4.53 and 107,000 ounces at an average grade of 4.02 g/t  respectively was calculated at the end of 2007. Drill results at that time allowed calculation to a depth of 225m (vertical) and 245m (vertical) in, respectively, the C4600 and C4000 Project Areas.

 

The 2008 drill programme has extended the drilled depth of the mineralised zone in the C4600 Project Area by a further 70m down dip, increasing the continuous extent of mineralisation to a depth of 275m from the surface. Similarly, in the C4000 Project Area the drilled depth was extended by 85m down-dip, increasing the continuation of mineralisation to a depth of 300m from the surface. The mineralisation in C4600 and C4000 Project Areas has now been drilled over a strike length of 330m and 250m respectively, and remains open both along strike and down dip.

 

The widths and grades of intersections reported here are consistent with the results of previous drilling on these project areas and indicate a 10% increase in strike length and a 20% increase in depth extension. These new drilling results will be incorporated into the updated resource estimate, which is to be published in early 2009.

 

The Contact Zone

 

Mineralisation in the Contact Zone is hosted in a wide shear zone that is known to extend for at least 10km on strike on the contact between the underlying Ordovician Chaarat Formation (siltstones and sandstones) and the overlying Devonian Tulkubash Formation (quartzites). The wide mineralised zones dip at 50 to 60 degrees to the North West. The gold mineralisation is associated with sulphides, sericitic alteration and minor quartz veinlets. 

 

Within the Contact Zone, the Company has delineated three Project Areas - C5300, C4600 and C4000. The project area numbers represent the on-strike location on a line parallel to the Contact Zone. During the 2008 exploration season the Company has been drilling all three Projects Areas (in addition to other Project Areas within the Chaarat licence area) from both surface and underground (see previous Press releases on the Company's web site www.chaarat.com ).

 

 

Dekel Golan, CEO of Chaarat comments "These excellent results confirm management's view that the Contact Zone has a significant strike and depth extension and is developing into a meaningful mineralised zone. Of considerable importance is the good continuity and projectability demonstrated by the drilling which, combined with the significant promise demonstrated by other mineralisation in the Main Zone and the less explored but very promising Tulkubash Zone, allows us to pursue, with increased confidence, our intention to establish a low cost bulk mining operation on these wide zones of mineralisation"
