Marathon Gold Extends High-Grade Gold Interval at the Golden Chest Mine, Idaho

TORONTO, Sept. 11, 2012 /CNW/ - Marathon Gold Corporation ("Marathon" or the "Company") (TSX: MOZ) today announced the final results of the 2012 drilling program at the Golden Chest Mine, which returned 10.8 g/t gold over 7.0 meters in drill hole GC 12-134.  This high-grade gold interval was part of a longer intercept of 4.41 g/t gold over 20.6 meters from the drilling program completed in May 2012 at the Golden Chest Mine in Murray, Idaho.  The Golden Chest Mine is owned 50% by New Jersey Mining Corporation ("NJMC") and 50% by Marathon Gold Corporation (TSX: MOZ) and NJMC is the operator.

"We had great success with this year's drilling program at the Golden Chest Mine and we are pleased to be concluding this program on such a strong note. These final results reveal the presence of a new high-grade gold shoot and the extension of a longer interval that was discovered in May of this year in the Katie and Dora area. Additionally, these concluding results demonstrate that there is the potential to increase the current open pit Resource," said Phillip Walford, President and CEO of Marathon Gold. "As the Company's focus is to generate value through Resource expansion, the current Resource Estimate is being revised based on this year's drilling results and is expected to be released in the fourth quarter of this year."

Highlights:

  • GC 12-134 returned 4.41 g/t gold over 20.60 meters from a depth of 154.4 meters and included a higher grade interval of 10.8 g/t gold over 7.0 meters.
  • GC 12-133 returned 9.65 g/t gold over 7.7 meters from a depth of 184 meters and included a higher grade interval of 30.3 g/to gold over 2.4 meters true thickness.
  • Both GC 12-133 and GC 12-134 are approximately 30 meters south of GC 11-02, which returned 33.0 g/t gold over 2.6 meters, indicating the presence of a newly discovered high-grade shoot. This new shoot has been named the Skookum shoot.
  • GC 12-142 returned 1.53 g/t gold over 17.0 meters from a depth of 56.3 meters.  This intercept is outside of the existing open pit Resource in the northern Katie and Dora area, which demonstrates the potential to increase the open pit Resource.
  • A total of 7,900 meters of drilling have been completed since the initial NI 43-101 Resource Estimate. A revised Resource Estimate is expected in the fourth quarter of this year.

The table below presents the balance of the drill results from the core drilling program at the Golden Chest Mine, which was completed in May of this year.

*All grades in this release are uncut, and all thicknesses are estimated true thicknesses

The vein intercept in GC 12-133 is approximately 50 meters down-dip from the GC 12-134 intercept.  The results from drill holes GC 12-133 and GC 12-134 indicate that a high-grade gold ore shoot, the Skookum shoot, is present within the Idaho Vein in a previously unexplored area.  The Skookum shoot is nearly 500 meters south of the historic Katie and Dora underground workings where most of the historic high-grade underground gold production occurred.

Drilling was suspended in May of this year in order to conserve capital. The Company took this opportunity to focus on core logging and sampling, mapping of the surface and underground geology, excavation of prospecting trenches, and property-wide geologic reconnaissance, and had great success. Additionally, environmental monitoring activities commenced. A total of 7,900 meters of drilling has been completed at the Golden Chest Mine since the release of the initial NI 43-101 Resource Estimate, which was based on 10,200 meters of drilling.

Phillip Walford P.Geo, President and CEO of Marathon Gold, is Marathon's Qualified Person in compliance with National Instrument 43-101 with respect to this release. Mr. Walford has reviewed the contents for accuracy and has approved this new release on behalf of Marathon.
