TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Aug. 14, 2013) - Goldeye Explorations Limited (TSX VENTURE:GGY) ("Goldeye" or "the Company") is pleased to provide a report on progress at its 100% owned Weebigee Project, located 230km north of Red Lake in Northwestern Ontario.
Weebigee Project, Sandy Lake, Northwestern Ontario
Following the receipt of a 3-year Exploration Permit and ongoing consultations with Sandy Lake First Nation, on July 27th 2013 Goldeye mobilized personnel and equipment to begin the 2013 summer exploration program at the Weebigee Project.
Geological prospecting, field mapping and sampling are underway, with several highly prospective showings in the Northwest Arm area currently being channel sampled (approximately 150 samples) and evaluated for drill testing. Approximately 10 km of line is being cut with spectral induced polarization and magnetics surveys planned.
All samples collected are being sent to Activation Laboratories Ltd. in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Goldeye anticipates receipt of initial assay results in the next two to three weeks and will release an update once final results from the program have been received and compiled.
The Weebigee project contains a number of underexplored lode gold targets. The property's 220 claim units cover the most prospective portions of the Sandy Lake Greenstone belt with geological similarities to gold deposits in the Red Lake District. Results from historic exploration programs include high grade grab samples of up to 187 grams per tonne (g/t) gold (Au) collected in the Northwest Arm claim block. Base metal showings up to 9% zinc (Zn) and 3% copper (Cu) occur 5km to the south at Sandborn Bay along with grab samples of 352 g/t silver (Ag) and 1 g/t Au.
Blaine Webster, President and CEO of Goldeye said: "The commencement of exploration activities represents another significant step for Goldeye at the Weebigee Project and highlights the positive relationship that has been built between Goldeye and Sandy Lake First Nation. The current program is designed to test an area of high grade lode gold showings, and provide additional information for a subsequent drill program. The Northwest Arm area holds the potential to provide a significant discovery which would bring tremendous benefit to Goldeye shareholders and to Sandy Lake First Nation."
Goldeye is committed to the ongoing consultation process with Sandy Lake First Nation, the closest Aboriginal community to the Weebigee Project, and discussions surrounding an Exploration Agreement between Goldeye and Sandy Lake First Nation are in their final stages. During the current program, Goldeye has put significant effort into community engagement, training and the creation of job opportunities for Sandy Lake First Nation band members. Seven band members have been hired to work on the project and are receiving wide-ranging on-the job-training. Sandy Lake First Nation will be an important source of personnel, infrastructure and services for the Weebigee Project during the early exploration phase, and as the project advances.
