Redhill Resources Corp.: Mutiny Drills More High Grade Gold Deflector North

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 16, 2011) - Redhill Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:RHR) ("Redhill" or the "Company") announces that Mutiny Gold Ltd. (ASX:MYG) ("Mutiny"), operator and optionee of Redhill's wholly owned Gullewa Copper-Gold Project, has informed Redhill of significant new high-grade gold intersections generated from the West Lode of its Deflector Gold Deposit.

The latest results were from Mutiny's recently completed diamond drilling program within the recently discovered extensions of the Deflector Deposit. These results will be incorporated into the revised resource estimate, which is expected to be released in the coming weeks.

Deflector Diamond Drill Results

A diamond drill program of 30 holes was carried out with the intension of increasing potential resource within the proposed area of initial underground mining at the Deflector Deposit.

Notable intersections include:

  • 3.6m @ 153g/t Au and 13.3% Cu from 145m in 11DD1A;
  • 12m @ 3.4g/t Au and <0.1% Cu from 262m in 11DD04;
  • 3m @ 47.6g/t Au and 1.5% Cu from 249m in 11DD15;
  • 4m @ 17.4g/t Au and 1.2% Cu from 300m in 11DD16A;
  • 3m @ 22.8g/t Au and 1.2% Cu from 282m in 11DD17;
  • 3m @ 18.1g/t Au and 0.3% Cu from 292m in 11DD17;
  • 3m @ 18.8g/t Au and 0.8% Cu from 316m in 11DD18;
  • 6m @ 20.9g/t Au and 0.3% Cu from 255m in 11DD27; and
  • 4m @ 6.2g/t Au and 0.5% Cu from 308m in 11DD29.

Multiple intersections were achieved within some holes, as a number of parallel lodes are present at depth within the deposit.

Mutiny announced Sept 9, 2011 it has resolved to make the next $2 million installment to move to a 70% interest in the "Flagship" Gullewa Gold Project. The payment is due by Oct 31, 2011.
