Kaminak Intersects Multiple High-Grade Gold Zones in Deep Drilling at Latte and New Gold Zone Discovered at Connector

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 21, 2011) - Kaminak Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE:KAM) today announced diamond drill results from the Latte (8 holes) and Connector (4 holes) zones, located on the Company's 150,000 acre Coffee Gold property, Yukon Territory. The deepest hole ever drilled on the property successfully intersected high-grade gold zones to a depth of 450m vertical at the Latte zone. Additional drilling at the Connector zone has extended known mineralization 100m towards the Supremo zone, supporting the concept that Latte and Supremo are related. A new gold zone at Connector has also been discovered occurring parallel to the original Connector mineralization.

Latte Deep Results Connector Results
CFD-164 – 5.5 g/t Au over 14m (from 353m) CFD-149 – 1.8 g/t Au over 7m (from 70m)
1.3 g/t Au over 10m (from 375m) 1.5 g/t Au over 17m (from 139m)
5.5 g/t Au over 11m (from 433m) 10.1 g/t Au over 2m (from 166m)
20.5 g/t Au over 3m (from 454m) CFD-152 – 11.1 g/t Au over 4m (from 103m)
2.8 g/t Au over 13m (from 464m) 1.9 g/t Au over 8m (from 153m)


  • Deepest hole ever drilled on the Coffee property successfully intersects multiple high-grade zones including; 5.5 grams per tonne gold (g/t Au) over 14m (from 353m core length); 5.5 g/t Au over 11m (from 433m); 20.5 g/t Au over 3m (from 454m) and 2.8 g/t Au over 13m (from 464m).
  • Drilling extends Connector zone 100m along trend towards Supremo gold zones. A new gold zone at Connector has also been discovered occurring parallel to the original Connector mineralization, results include; CFD-149: 1.5 g/t Au over 17m (from 139m), 10.1 g/t Au over 2m (from 166m) and CFD-152: 11.1 g/t Au over 4m (from 103m) and 1.9 g/t Au over 8m (from 153m).
  • Latte structure extended an additional 200m east along strike towards Double Double zone and now extends at least 1550m long and is open in every direction and at depth. Assays for three additional deep holes at Latte are pending.
  • Latte is one of several closely spaced gold prospects, which also includes the Supremo zone (900m north) and the Double Double zone (950m east). Geological similarities on all scales suggest these zones are related to the same mineralizing event and, as a result, are potentially connected along trend and at depth.

Drill Results

2011 drilling programs were conducted with the objective of extending mineralization along strike and to depth and proving continuity of mineralized structures. In previous news releases, the Company announced the extension of the Latte zone over 1350m strike length and to 275 metres depth below surface (September 14, 2011) and the discovery of the Connector zone (November 16, 2010) which returned an initial intercept of 5.5 g/t over 11m on a north-south trend along strike of the Supremo Zone.

The drilling covered within this news release extends the east-west trending Latte mineralized structure to at least 1550m along strike and 450m vertical below surface and highlights the potential for further extensions to the west and eastwards towards the Double Double Zone (950m east). A deep step-back hole at Latte West, CFD-164 drilled to 542.5m down hole depth, intersected a total of over 250 gram-metres (total grade x width) down hole to a maximum vertical depth below surface of 450m indicating that the Latte mineralized system persists strongly to depth. Three additional holes to test the depth potential beneath Latte West were drilled along strike of CFD-164 with results currently pending.

In addition, the initial Connector discovery is extended 100m northwards (from CFD-69: 5.5g/t over 11m from 133m depth) thereby confirming the north-south orientation and further highlighting the potential to link this zone with Supremo 900m to the north along strike. Significantly, a new parallel trending mineralized zone was intersected in drill holes CFD-149 (1.5 g/t over 17m and 10.1 g/t over 2m) and CFD-152 (11.1 g/t over 4m), which suggests the potential for the Connector system to host multiple stacked lenses of mineralization akin to the Supremo zones T1 to T7.

Gold mineralization in all zones at Coffee is hosted within brittle fractures and brecciated gneisses and schists accompanied by silica flooding and pyrite/limonite alteration. High‐grade intervals are associated with polyphase breccia, microbreccia, quartz vein breccia, coarse sericite and high sulphide content. Geological similarities between all zones and at all scales suggest these zones are related to the same mineralizing event and, as a result, are potentially connected along trend and at depth.

Latte/Connector is one of several closely spaced gold prospects, which also includes the Supremo zone (900m north) and the Double Double zone (950m east). The 2011 drilling has extended mineralization at Latte West 400m beyond the western limit of the gold-in-soil anomaly, and interpretation of geophysical data supported by gold-in-soil anomalies has reinforced the potential for linkages between the known gold zones. All zones are interpreted to come to surface and remain open along strike and at depth. Drilling in 2012 will continue to test for strike and depth extensions and across-strike for multiple stacked lenses of mineralization.
