Goldeye Reports Tyrrell Drill Results Including 33.2 g/t Au Over 1.0 m or 4.0 g/t Au Over 9.0 m in Hole G-11-68 from the Hanging Wall of the Tyrrell Shear Zone

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 14, 2011) - Goldeye Explorations Limited (TSX VENTURE:GGY) ("Goldeye" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the results from the 12 diamond drill holes completed during the May-June 2011 program on its 100% owned Tyrrell Property in the Shining Tree area of Northern Ontario.

Goldeye will be at booth #133 at the Investment Conference being held at the Sheraton Hotel in Toronto, Ontario on September 15th & 16th, 2011.

Highlights include the following:

  • Hole G-11-68 intersected three separate new zones of gold mineralization: 33.2 g/t Au over 1.0 m; 2.01 g/t Au over 1.0 m and 3.17 g/t Au over 2.6 m. The gold occurs in brecciated mafic pillowed to massive volcanics which have been extensively bleached, sericitized and silicified. The visible mineralization consists of fine pyrite in a siliceous grey matrix, surrounding the angular fragments with minor quarts veins.
  • Hole G11-61 cut 3.61 g/t Au over 1.0 m in brecciated mafic flows.
  • Hole G-11-63 assayed 2.68 g/t Au over 1.0 m in brecciated mafic flows.

These three holes were drilled 1,100 m apart and intersected the gold mineralization in the hanging wall of the Tyrrell Shear Zone in essentially identical geological settings. Similar style and grade of mineralization was intersected in previous drilling 1,900 m to the NW of Hole G-11-68 giving 3,000 m of strike length to explore. Jorma Hannila, Goldeye CEO, said, "We are very pleased with these results as they have identified an essentially untested high grade target in a new hanging wall environment. Additional drilling is planned for this fall to follow-up these exciting results"
