VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 14, 2013) - Teuton Resources Corp. ("Teuton") (TSX VENTURE:TUO) (FRANKFURT:TFE) (OTCBB:TEUTF) announces that its optionee, Rotation Minerals Ltd., has completed drilling 1345m in 25 close spaced holes on the 4-J's property. The 4-J's property is located 40km north of Stewart and 16km south of Pretium's Brucejack property in the Golden Triangle region of northwestern British Columbia.
Highlights of the first eight holes include:
2.44 m of 1.29 g/t Au, 140.5 g/t Ag, 3.23 % Pb, 11.73 % Zn and 2.61 % Sb in DDH4J-2012-1
3.05 m of 0.70 g/t Au, 156.5 g/t Ag, 2.5 % Pb, 9.43 % Zn and 1.10 % Sb in DDH4J-2012-7
The drilling tested the east end of a northwest trending zone of stratiform copper-lead-zinc-silver-gold mineralization associated with strong graphite and quartz infusion. Trenching in the past has shown massive mineralization consisting of bournonite (copper-lead-antimony sulphide), tetrahedrite (copper-antimony-sulphide), sphalerite (zinc sulphide) and galena (lead sulphide) over 6m of width and 30m of length, poorly exposed in glacial till. This mineralization is underlain by a strong coincident northwest trending EM anomaly at least 700m long as indicated by several airborne EM surveys completed by previous operators on the property.
Float boulders carrying bournonite, sphalerite and galena associated with late stage, east-trending shears have been located along trend of the above EM anomaly for a distance of 300m before being covered by glacial ice. This would indicate the potential for extension of this type of mineralization for at least 300m to the west of the 2012 drilling.
Assays for the first 8 holes have been received with the following results:
** Hole lost in zone.
DDH4J-2012-4 and 5 were not drilled deep enough to intersect the zone. Assays for 17 remaining holes will be released after receipt and data compilation.
Teuton President D. Cremonese, P.Eng. said: "These 4J's results represent the third successful exploration program undertaken in 2012 on Teuton ground located due south of Pretium's prolific gold-silver Brucejack property. First, was the King Tut discovery by Teuton on the High claims located 150m south of the boundary with the Brucejack property, from which a single hole ran 220m grading 0.88 g/t gold. Second, was the discovery of new copper-gold porphyry zones on the Tennyson property by optionee Brigade Resources (a Hunter-Dickinson company), adding to the considerable copper-gold data produced by Teuton's drilling in 2010 and 2011. All of these positive findings suggest the area will be a hotspot for exploration in the upcoming field season. Teuton is currently seeking an optionee for the northernmost portion of the High property."
The 4J's property is subject to an option agreement whereby Rotation Minerals can earn a 50% interest by making payments of $180,000.00 and incurring exploration expenditures of $1,800,000.00 by 2014. Rotation can earn an additional 20% interest by carrying out a feasibility study.
D. Cremonese, P.Eng. is the Qualified Person for the purposes of this news release. He has not independently verified the data prepared by Rotation Minerals and its QP, Ed Kruchkowski, P.Geo. Standard protocols were used in sample preparation and a certified assay laboratory was employed (Loring Labs of Calgary).
