Linux Gold Corp. Announces Geological Report Received on Dime Creek Gold/Platinum Property in Alaska

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 5, 2009) - Linux Gold Corp. (OTCBB:LNXGF) is pleased to announce that Tom Bundtzen has completed a summary report, on the Dime Creek property, dated April 25, 2009.

Tom Bundtzen reports that the Dime Creek area is a historic producer of gold and platinum located in the eastern portion of the Seward Peninsula, within the Koyuk Mining District of Alaska. Examination of U.S. Mint production records and other sources indicate that Dime Creek has produced an estimated 40,000-to-61,000 ounces of gold from 1915 to 1955 - most of which was produced prior to 1952.

The summary report estimates one million cubic yards of auriferous pay remain in several defined areas within the Dime Creek basin. In addition, lode targets for platinum and possibly gold have been outlined by an auger soil survey carried out by past investigators and from historical notations in published literature. Additional data on platinum lode targets can be acquired with follow-up drilling concurrent with placer gold exploration and is a recommended course of action for future exploration work.

Linux Gold controls 12 contiguous State of Alaska mining claims centered along Dime Creek, as well as a large claim block to the north in the Granite Mountain Area. The Dime Creek claims encompass 1,920 acres of land, including most of the historically mined areas and the most prospective ground for locating additional placer resources. All claims are currently in good standing.

Recommendations For Development of Placer Gold Resource

The placer resource areas should be drill tested prior to any decisions to develop them. Placer ground in the upper portion of the basin above Haycock is relatively shallow (less than 20 feet) and drill-testing could be accomplished with a track-mounted auger drill similar to that used to conduct soil sampling in 2001.

A 100 hole, 3,000 foot drill program is recommended to begin the due diligence on the placer resource north of Haycock. This data could initiate production planning for the placer resource and open the door for a second phase of drilling in the following year south of Haycock.

Recommendations for Lode Resource Exploration

Exploration by previous operators in 2000-2001 located elevated PGE values within the Linux Gold claim block. These anomalies already define potential PGE-bearing lode drill targets for Linux Gold Corp. and should be initially tested by 2 to 4 drill holes. These test holes could be completed in conjunction with the placer resource exploration program.

Qualified Person: Mr. Tom Bundtzen, Certified Professional Geologist (CPG) #10912 with the American Institute of Professional Geologists, Alaska Business License #279639 - Geological and Technical Services, is the Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 responsible for the accuracy of this news release.


Linux Gold Corp. is involved in exploration of mineral properties. Our current plans are to joint venture and explore our gold properties in Alaska. Linux Gold Corp. owns 247 State of Alaska mining claims at several locations near Granite Mountain on the eastern Seward Peninsula of Alaska. Linux Gold Corp. also owns a 50% interest in 30 mineral claims known as the Fish Creek Prospect, located in the Fairbanks Mining Division in Alaska. Linux Gold Corp. optioned a 50% interest in the Fish Creek claims to Teryl Resources Corp. (TRC-V), retaining a 5% net smelter return or may convert into a 25% working interest. Linux has also staked mineral exploration claims covering 6,400 acres in the Livengood-Tolovana Mining District, in the State of Alaska.
