Kestrel Announces Completion of Geophysical Survey at King Solomon Dome Property
June 28, 2012 – Vancouver, British Columbia: Kestrel Gold Inc. (“Kestrel” or the “Corporation”) (TSX Venture: KGC) announces the completion of a geophysical survey (the “Survey”) at Kestrel’s King Solomon Dome Property south of Dawson City, in the Yukon Territory (“KSD”).
The Survey is intended to map the geophysical properties of resistivity and chargeability of the subsurface down to a depth of 500 metres. SJ Geophysics Ltd. of Delta, British Columbia using their new Volterra-3DIP system in conjunction with a magnetometer survey over a grid approximately 1.6 km by 1.6 km, has been focusing on the area encompassing the Sheba and Mitchell workings which lie within a large gold geochemical soil anomaly.
This second phase of deeper geophysical work is envisaged to give a much clearer (3D) picture of the morphology of structures, contrasting lithologies and additional potential drill targets at greater depths. The Survey follows on from the first phase of geophysical work conducted in 2011 which was successful in outlining a large chargeable IP anomaly centred in the area around the Sheba showing and trending towards the Mitchell Shaft to the north over a distance of approximately 1.2 km open along strike and extending to depth.
William Taylor, the Vice President Exploration of Kestrel comments: “We know from work done to date the importance of regional scale NNW trending D4 structures at KSD in relation to Klondike gold mineralization. This survey will help us better understand the other factors that have concentrated the gold and other path finder elements in this particular area where the signatures are so relatively high.”
A number of drill targets have already been outlined at KSD and the results of the Survey are anticipated to be received in advance of the Corporation’s planned 2012 diamond drill program.
