TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / July 23 2014 / Golden Share Mining Corporation ("Golden Share" or the "Company" - TSXV:GSH) is pleased to announce the staking of additional claims on its Berens River project ("Berens River") in Northwestern Ontario, Canada. The recently staked area consists of 9 claim blocks covering approximately 19 km?. Please see figure.1 below or visit : http://www.goldenshare.ca.
The new claims join the northern and southern claim blocks of the Berens River property and establish a unified and continuous land package for a total surface area of 56 km? covering the extension of the geological formations host of the past producing Berens River gold-silver mine. The new claims are underlain by similar rocks types which include mafic to felsic metavolcanic rocks, lesser quantities of clastic and chemical metasediments, and a variety of subvolcanic intrusions, notably the Setting Net Lake stock, an epizonal granodiorite-granite pluton.
This new land position provides Golden Share with an improved strategic package to cover a highly prospective area. The recent field work program at Berens River has highlighted a broad spectrum of mineralization types including :
Berens Vein N?1 and 3 type : Au-Ag-Pb-Zn bearing quartz-actinolite-sulphides veins and veinlets hosted within felsic volcanic rocks with two types of associated alteration; quartz-sericite alteration and chlorite-actinolite-garnet-magnetite alteration.
Felsic intrusion vein related type : Quartz-sulphide veinlets and disseminated sulphides containing gold and base metals within felsic to intermediate intrusions.
Porphyry type : Porphyry type molybdenite mineralization within the Setting Net Lake stock.
Specifically on the Berens Southern block :
-A copper zone along a felsic unit which had never been sampled for gold.
-A gold zone associated to a quartz-diorite and a fault zone with gold mineralization hosted in chalcopyrite bearing quartz veinlets (Doyon type mineralization).
-Arsenic bearing veins : (a) Au-As (copper, silver) and (b) Au-Cu-Pb-Zn-Ag (? arsenic).
All these occurrences are part of a broad metallogenic system also underlying the newly staked claims where pyrite and pyrrhotite, with lesser chalcopyrite, sphalerite, and rarely molybdenite, occur in thin sedimentary horizons at various locations while pyrite-pyrrhotite mineralization also occurs in mafic volcanic rocks with historical sampling reporting values up to 43 ppb gold, 1.6 ppm silver, 981 ppm copper, and 393 ppm zinc.
Golden Share is in the process of assessing the results from its recent field program and will provide further technical updates in due course.
