RENO, NEVADA--(Marketwire - Oct. 9, 2012) - Consolidated Goldfields Corp. ("Consolidated" or the "Company") (PINKSHEETS:CDGF) is pleased to announce the results of its recent surface sampling program at its Fisher Canyon gold project in Pershing County, Nevada. Previous widespread rock chip and soil sampling had identified anomalous zones of enriched gold and associated pathfinder elements throughout the project area. This follow-up work was done to confirm this mineralization and characterize the nature of gold mineralization at specific locations prior to the upcoming drilling campaign.
All of the samples collected within this newly discovered gold zone in the north portion of the claim block contained substantial amounts of gold in altered volcanic rock including one that assayed 1.148 oz/ton gold. Visible gold up to 0.5mm in diameter was detected in selected hand samples from this area.
||Select grab of altered volcanic rock
||One foot (0.35m) rock chip across out crop of altered volcanics
||Float on hillside above prospect, altered volcanics (30m)
||One foot (0.35m) rock chip across altered volcanic shear zone
||Float on hillside above prospect traced for 100 feet
||Three foot (1m) rock chip across altered volcanic shear zone
||Three foot (1m) rock chip across altered volcanic outcrop
The discovery of this new zone is very significant because gold has not been identified within this style of alteration in the past at Fisher Canyon resulting in a completely new exploration strategy that has uncovered multiple new targets throughout the entire project area. In addition, the very high grade nature of this mineralization including visible gold had not been identified on the property during previous exploration activities. The Company is currently planning a twenty hole, 9000 foot (2,750m) drill program this fall to further test this mineralization as well other areas where ore-grade precious metal mineralization was encountered in historic drilling campaigns.
