Victoria Gold Corp. (OTC Other: VITFF; TSX-V: VIT) has results from 15 diamond drill core holes recently completed on the Company’s 100% owned Dublin Gulch project in the Yukon. The purpose of the 2,692 metre drill program was to:
— Obtain additional Feasibility Study level samples from the main part of the deposit for bulk density determinations;
— Better define the location and nature of the interface between the non-oxidized portion of the deposit and the variably oxidized zones of the Eagle deposit; and
— Provide “in-fill” drill coverage for a portion of the deposit to support Reserve definition for the Feasibility Study.
According to John McConnell, “This first batch of drill results from our 2011 exploration campaign at Dublin Gulch demonstrates the potential for Eagle to host near-surface higher-grade zones of gold over significant widths. In the lead up to completing the Feasibility Study, these results confirm Eagle is evolving into a significant gold deposit and we are on track to start construction in 2012.”
