Cayden Intersects 18.3 Meters of 119 g/t Silver, 2.73% Zinc and 1.89% Lead at its Quartz Mountain Project, Nevada
Cayden Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CYD) ("Cayden" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has received additional assay results from reverse circulation drilling at the Quartz Mountain property near Fallon, Nevada, USA. These results come from eight step-out holes that follow up on the significant grades and widths of silver and base-metal mineralization encountered in the initial holes reported on February 15, 2012. The mineralized intercepts reported to date come from a total of 24 holes that have drill tested the Quartz Mountain mineralized system over an area of 350 by 150 meters. The majority of holes have encountered intercepts greater than 30 g/t Ag and in excess of 1% combined Pb and Zn. The current holes encountered gold mineralization up to 0.97 g/t over 4.6 meters. Highlights from the most recent results include:
Please see table 1 for additional results, and figures 1 and 2 for drill hole locations. Cayden is finishing its Phase 1 drill program at the present time and expects assays from four more holes in the coming weeks after which time it will compile all results, determine a geologic model for mineralization and design the next phase of drilling. The Company is commencing an extensive soil-sampling program with a crew of two project geologists and four field assistants to test other areas of the expansive property. Many of these prospective areas include extensive historic workings, which have returned high-grade precious and base metal values from dump grab samples that are interpreted to be coincident with geophysical anomalies and trends.
Cayden's President and CEO Ivan Bebek states: "We are very pleased to see the continuation of higher grade mineralization at the Quartz Mountain San Rafael target and look forward to drilling some of the other large targets on the property later this year. With our ongoing aggressive programs at Morelos Sur and continued results out of Nevada, we expect 2012 to be a year that we could potentially deliver significant new discoveries on both our properties. We look forward to releasing further results from both exploration programs in the coming months."
On Behalf of the Board,
Ivan Bebek, President and CEO
Qualified Person and QA/QC
Gary DeShutter, M.Sc., P. Geo. is the Qualified Person with respect to NI 43-101 at Quartz Mountain. Reverse circulation samples were taken at five foot (1.5 m) intervals utilizing drilling and sampling techniques widely accepted in resource definition studies of base and precious metal deposits. All reverse circulation drill samples are assayed using standard 30 gram fire assay with atomic absorption finish for gold and by nitric aqua regia digestion, and inductively coupled plasma - atomic emission spectroscopy (ICP - AES) for the other elements reported; all sample preparation and analyses are completed by ALS Minerals Labs in Reno Nevada and Vancouver, British Columbia. QA/QC programs using internal lab and external standard samples, re-assays, and blanks indicate good accuracy and precision in a large majority of standards assayed. Based on historical reports of stopping activities, mineralization in the area drilled is believed to be primarily shallow to moderately dipping. Six of the eight holes were drilled vertically and two were drilled at minus 75 degrees. Thus the widths suggested by the intercepts are believed to be approximate true width to within 40%.
About the Quartz Mountain Project
The Quartz Mountain project consists of an option with Vancouver based Railhead Resources Ltd. ("Railhead"), a private resource explorer, under which Cayden can earn either a 50% or 60% interest in three groups of Nevada silver-gold exploration properties, which Railhead has the right to acquire from an underlying owner. The Property consists of three claim groups for a total of 60 square kilometers over which many small historical workings are present. Cayden and Railhead have performed soil, rock sampling, and geophysical surveys over other portions of the property and are currently in the process of refining multiple targets into a drill ready stage.
