TORONTO, April 6 /CNW/ - Gammon Gold Inc. ("Gammon") (TSX: GAM) (NYSE: GRS): Gammon is pleased to announce that a new discovery of high-grade gold-silver mineralization in the La Balleza Vein in the north-central portion of the Venus property.

Venus Project Drilling Highlights


Highlights from the 12 holes for which assays have been received include:

  • VEN-009, 0.7 metres grading 62.20 grams per tonne gold and 2,700 grams per tonne silver, or 111.29 grams per tonne gold equivalent(1).
  • VEN-004, 0.6 metres grading 8.58 grams per tonne gold and 1,050 grams per tonne silver, or 27.67 grams per tonne gold equivalent(1).

(1) Using the Company's long-term gold equivalency ratio of 55:1 (which assumes 100% metallurgical recoveries and royalties for gold and silver).

"We are very encouraged by the early drilling results our Venus Project, which lies three kilometres directly north of the Ocampo Mine Properties.  The surface work completed to date has shown that there are multiple veins outcropping with locally very high grades on surface.  Results from three holes drilled on the La Balleza Vein have reported some very high gold and silver grades on two of those holes." stated Peter Drobeck, Senior Vice President of Exploration and Business Development.  He continued, "As well as the high-grade discoveries at La Balleza, we are also encouraged by the surface geology and initial drilling results from the Santo Nino Vein, located a kilometre south of La Balleza.  This vein is locally up to 30 metres wide of banded and brecciated calcite - quartz, has been traced for 2.4 kilometres along strike and has shown highly anomalous surface sample values up to 49.80 grams per tonne gold."

Note:  The Venus Project information has been reviewed by Qualified Person, Mr. Peter Drobeck. Sample analyses for Venus Project drilling were performed by ALS-Chemex Laboratories (based in Vancouver, British Columbia, using their facility in Hermosillo, Mexico).  Gold was analyzed using standard fire assay procedures with AA finish, and silver by multi-acid digestion with AA finish.  The high gold assays reported herein for drill holes VEN-004 and VEN-009 had their gold values checked with screen fire assays which are shown on Table 1 (standard fire assays were slightly higher).  The Company has an established program of inserting certified control samples and blanks in compliance with best practices, and this program is used at the Venus Project per Company policies.  Sample lengths are not necessarily true widths.
