Currie Rose Mabale Hills and Sekenke Update-Tanzania

ST. CATHARINES, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 25, 2011) - Currie Rose Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CUI)(PINK SHEETS:CUIRF) ("Currie" or "the Company") is pleased to provide an update on the Company's drilling activities at the Mabale Hills and Sekenke Projects situated in the Lake Victoria greenstone belt of Tanzania, East Africa.

Mabale Hills Project

Currie Rose has completed an extensive drilling program designed to follow up on encouraging results from previous work at Sisu River and Dhahabu.

The first part of the program involved 1,923 metres of Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling in 16 holes at Sisu River. While disseminated sulphides were intersected in each hole, assay results returned only narrow gold intercepts. The Sisu River anomaly was extended but the gold grade did not improve. Significant intercepts are shown in the table below.

  1. Drill intercept lengths are down-hole lengths reflecting apparent widths of mineralization.
  2. The calculation of drill intercepts employs a 0.5 g/t gold cut-off with 1m of internal dilution and no cutting grade has been applied to high gold values.
  3. All intercepts fall within Currie's Mwamazengo claim block. A location map can be found on the Company's website,

At Dhahabu, 1.5 kilometers northwest of Sisu River, 4 RC holes (556 m) were drilled based on earlier drilling and an IP (Induced Polarization) ground based geophysical survey. No significant results were returned and the Company will review all data from Dhahabu prior to any additional drilling at this prospect.

A Rotary Air Blast (RAB) drilling program totalling 1,989 metres from 69 holes has also been completed over the wider Sisu River area where a number of abandoned surface workings, soil anomalies and interpreted Landsat alteration anomalies indicate potential gold mineralization. Assay results from this drilling are still pending.

Sekenke Project

At Sekenke, a target area was defined by soil sampling with coincident Landsat alteration interpretation and geological mapping. Rotary Air Blast (RAB) drilling totalling 2,396 metres has been completed and results are pending.
