Belvedere Resources Ltd.: Further High Grade Gold Drill Results and Commencement of Bulk Metallurgical Testing at Kopsa, Finland

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Marketwire - Jan. 18, 2012) - Belvedere Resources Ltd. (TSX V:BEL) ("Belvedere") is pleased to announce the final drill results from a 4,300m programme of resource delineation drilling at its 100% owned Kopsa gold project. In addition large scale bulk metallurgical tests have commenced to follow up on the successful bench scale tests in 2011. The Kopsa gold, copper project is being evaluated as an open pit satellite mining operation to be processed at the Hitura Nickel mine and mill, which lies only 15 km away.


  • Individual assays of high grade gold include:.
    • 0.82 m @ 47.5 g/t Au (BelKopDD 102)
    • 1.50 m @ 44.7 g/t Au (BelKopDD 101)
    • 1.83 m @ 37.7 g/t Au (BelKopDD 102)
    • 1.25 m @ 34.1 g/t Au (BelKopDD 100)
  • Infill results in the high-grade part of the main zone continue to deliver good results e.g.
    • 60.89 m @ 2 g/t Au 0.20% Cu (BelKopDD 100)
    • 57.89 m @ 1.82 g/t Au 0.24% Cu (BelKopDD 101B)

David Pym (CEO) comments "With the completion of this final phase of drilling, and the commencement of the bulk metallurgical sampling, the project is now moving into the evaluation phase. During this phase the necessary studies will be completed to determine Kopsa's suitability as a satellite mining project utilising the nearby Hitura Mill…"

Table 1: Intersections using a 0.5 g/t Au cut-off with a grade thickness greater than 3 gram meters. No top cut is applied. Maximum grade is 47.5g/t Au over 0.82m, one of seven individual samples over 15 g/t Au (0.5 oz/t). Intersections are estimated to be 85 - 100% of true width. Note 101B is a duplicate of drillhole 101.

About Kopsa

Kopsa belongs to the Intrusive Related style of deposits similar to the Fort Knox style of deposits in Alaska, and is one of a number of similar deposits Belvedere is developing in the region. Gold copper mineralization is associated with quartz veins and shearing and is hosted in a Proterozoic aged Tonalite Intrusion. The recent drill programme consisted of 4,320 metres over 44 holes, and is focused on, shallow near surface mineralisation in the main zone. Mineralisation in the Main Zone occurs largely between surface and 100m vertical, has a true thickness between 20 and 70m and dips shallowly to the south. It has now been delineated over a strike length of 650 metres, and remains open in all directions. Further mineralised zones have been intersected to the north and south of the Main Zone, and remain targets for future follow-up drilling.

The drilling was undertaken by Drillcon SMOY of Finland, providing 42 mm diameter core. Samples are comprised of half Diamond core. Intersections are estimated to be 85% - 100% of true width. No top cuts are applied with the highest individual assay being 22.0 g/t gold over 1.08 metres. Core samples are sawn in half on site, prepped and assayed by 30g fire assay with an AAS finish at the internationally accredited laboratories of ALS Chemex in Finland. The quality assurance-quality control (QAQC) program of Belvedere consists of the insertion of certified standards of known gold content every 20 samples, with blanks at the beginning of each batch. In addition, ALS Chemex inserts a number of blanks and standards into the analytical process. Standards, blanks and duplicates make up approximately 15% of the samples assayed. The remaining half core is retained on site for verification and reference purposes. The locations of the drillholes are provided in the table below.
