SUDBURY, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 6, 2012) - Manitou Gold Inc. (News - Market indicators) ("Manitou" or the "Company") announces the results of six Diamond drill holes from the 2012 Gaffney Extension drill program. These holes represent the completion of the 17 hole (5,032 metre) 2012 exploration program. This year's drilling program has demonstrated the presence of significant gold mineralization over substantial widths and indicates the presence of a large gold system. The Company has made significant advances in understanding the controls on the gold mineralization as well as the exploration potential of the property. To aid in the understanding of the geological descriptions contained in this news release, the reader is referred to the accompanying plan map and drill section. (Plan map available at the following link:; Drill section available at the following link:

Diamond drill hole G-12-32, the first hole of the 2012 program, intersected a 66.0 metre wide interval which averaged 1.5 g/t Au (News Release November 1, 2012). This interval contained two exceptionally wide sections of gold bearing QFP dyke, 37 metres wide and 13 metres wide respectively. These two wide QFP intervals represent a significant change to the geological model, resulting in a reassessment of the gold mineralization and the drill pattern. It was determined that a series of holes completed at different orientations to the normal drill pattern would confirm the geometry of the gold bearing QFP dyke (see cross section). 

Drill hole G-12-43, the initial hole drilled at the new orientation, intersected a 16 metre wide interval which averaged 2.0 g/t Au and included 7.0 m of 3.2 g/t Au. This intersection included 12 metres of the QFP dyke and 4 metres of altered diorite along the margins of the QFP dyke. 

Drill hole G-12-44, drilled from the same setup as G-12-43, but with a steeper dip, intersected a 33.0 metre wide interval which averaged 1.2 g/t Au. The intersection included 10.4 metres of the QFP dyke and 23.1 metres of altered diorite along the margins of the QFP dyke.

Hole G-12-45, drilled from the same setup as G-12-43 and G-12-44, intersected a 36.4 metre wide interval which averaged 1.4 g/t Au and included a 15.9 metre wide interval which averaged 2.8 g/t Au, all contained within the altered diorite. The QFP dyke was intersected lower in the hole and returned 12.5 metres of 1.6 g/ t Au. 

Hole G-12-46 was drilled to provide additional structural information as well as to gain another intersection of the QFP dyke. This hole intersected the QFP dyke and returned 27.6 m of 1.7 g/t Au.

Todd Keast, President and CEO of Manitou commented, "This newly identified gold bearing QFP Dyke presents a very exciting exploration target. The body appears to be 6 to 10 metres wide and contains several metres of the mineralized altered diorite along the contacts. QFP dykes often demonstrate considerable continuity along strike and at depth, which presents the potential for a sizeable target with exceptional predictability. This section of drilling has clearly demonstrated the vertical extent of the QFP Dyke to at least 250 metres in depth and is open at depth and along strike. The relationship of QFP Dyke to the more common altered diorite style of gold mineralization is currently being evaluated with an updated 3-D Model underway. We certainly view this discovery as an important step in the ongoing process of understanding this complex, underexplored area."
