Scorpio Gold Corporation TSXV:SGN announced drill results from its Mineral Ridge Gold Deposit in Nevada. Highlights include 1.52 g/t gold over 9.2 metres, 1.69 g/t over 13.7 metres (including 2.28 g/t over 9.2 metres), 0.92 g/t over 12.2 metres (including 1.17 g/t over 9.2 metres), 1.11 g/t over 4.6 metres, 1.07 g/t over 6.1 metres, 5.53 g/t over 1.5 metres, 1.81 g/t over 15.2 metres, 3.57 g/t over 6.1 metres, 1.79 g/t over 4.6 metres and 3.03 g/t over 12.2 metres.
President/CEO Peter Hawley commented, “The initial 2011 exploration drilling has been successful in expanding the known mineralization beyond the existing open pit areas. For example, results to date for the Mary North area report mineralization extending to over 300 metres beyond the existing pit wall. These results demonstrate the widespread nature of mineralization that hosts the Mineral Ridge deposit, and the opportunity for Scorpio Gold to significantly expand the mineral resource base. The company will continue to release results as they are received and compiled.”
