Toronto, ON, / ACCESSWIRE / August 20, 2014 / Golden Share Mining Corporation ("Golden Share" or the "Company" - TSXV:GSH) is pleased to provide a first series of results on its recent Berens River work program. As reported in July 2014, the recent Berens field campaign focussed on two aspects, lithogeochemistry sampling and mapping and prospecting notably in the area of DDH NZ-88-19 and at the southern end of the property. The current release presents the raw mapping and prospecting surface outcrop grab sample results which highlight three specific areas of the property as outlined below.
1- Southern Intrusive
Three specific sampling areas highlight a mineralized system associated with the northern section of the Southern Intrusive, a predominantly dioritic to quartz dioritic stock, locally hosting more granitic phases as described in the field. In the sampled area, this intrusive is approximately one kilometer wide with the Younge occurrence located on the west flank while the Newconex and Geotest prospects are situated at the eastern margin of the intrusive. The mineralization consists principally in pyrite with occasional chalcopyrite, locally up to 50% total sulfides. Specific to this area is the presence of arsenopyrite, from trace to massive pods. This mineralization is associated with northwest trending shear zones and quartz veins parallel to a regional, multi-kilometer, northwest trending structure. Highlights of the sampling are presented below.
38.50 g/t Au, 497.00 g/t Ag and 5.10 % Cu
26.10 g/t Au, 103.00 g/t Ag, 2.44 % Cu and 0.21 % Zn
23.60 g/t Au, 169.00 g/t Ag, 1.86 % Cu and 1.13 % Zn
21.10 g/t Au, 535.00 g/t Ag, 5.23 % Cu and 0.34 % Zn
8.68 g/t Au, 19.50 g/t Ag and 0.29 % Cu
1.13 g/t Au, 28.10 g/t Ag, 0.29 % Cu and 0.21 % Zn
5.81 g/t Au and 3.90 g/t Ag
5.20 g/t Au and 2.80 g/t Ag
2.11 g/t Au and 8.40 g/t Ag
1.55 g/t Au and 4.30 g/t Ag
2- Senet - McCloskey
Two specific sampling areas are located in the volcanics approximately 250 m east of the Southern Intrusive. The mineralization consists principally in pyrrhotite with occasional pyrite, chalcopyrite and sphalerite under the form of disseminated to semi massive bands hosted in a fine to locally coarse grained basalt. Highlights of the sampling are presented below. Old, unidentifiable drill core was found and a composite sample was taken for reference purposes.
Senet : up to 0.22 g/t Au, 5.10 g/t Ag and 0.15 % Zn / DDH composite : 0.34 % Cu
McCloskey : up to 0.60 g/t Ag, 0.12 % Cu and 0.49 %Zn
3- Berens south veins
Two specific veins inferred to belong to the Berens River main vein system were sampled approximately 2.5 km south of Vein N?3. The mineralization consists in up to 3% pyrite and sphalerite in quartz veins and breccias up to 40 cm wide hosted in dacites and silicified tuffs. Highlights of the sampling are presented below.
Vein N?9 : 0.98 g/t Au, 36.10 g/t Ag, 0.09 % Cu and 0.25 % Zn
Vein N?14 : 0.44 g/t Au, 13.10 g/t Ag, 0.20 % Cu and 0.35 % Zn and 0.10 g/t Au, 40.50 g/t Ag, 0.04 % Cu and 0.61 % Zn
The sampling was executed mostly in areas of known historical mineralization to improve geological understanding that was lacking from historical documents. Additionally, all areas have been the object of lithogeochemical sampling to further characterize the geological environments hosting the mineralization with modern methods and provide recommendations for future work. Please see Figure.1 below for further details. Table.1 below provides the complete list of assays from the recent campaign.
Lithogeochemistry and further detailed geological interpretation of mapping and prospecting results will be provided once all information has been thoroughly complied.
About Golden Share
Golden Share Mining Corporation is a Canadian-based mining exploration company developing a promising and well-balanced property portfolio in the mineral belts of Eastern Canada, a politically stable environment with a history of rich mineral endowment. On July 25, 2013 shareholders of the Company approved the merger with Silvore Fox Minerals Corp., a Canadian junior explorer listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (see press release dated July 25, 2013). Following this transaction Beijing Donia Resources Co. Ltd., a Chinese state-controlled company, has become Golden Share's largest shareholder with approximately 30.88% of its issued and outstanding Shares. Sinotech Minerals Exploration Co.
