VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Aug. 22, 2013) - Venza Gold Corp. "Venza" (OTCBB:VZAGF) is pleased to announce further results of the continuing geochemical soil survey on the three claim blocks it holds in the Osoyoos Mining Division in British Columbia. Two new claims, Tenure numbers 1021695 and 1021696, were staked to cover the southern extension of the copper anomaly.
The Phase 2 soil geochemical survey has enlarged the original copper anomaly from the initial 2012 geochemical survey southward and eastward to the boundaries of the survey area. Three plus 80 parts per million copper anomalies (maximum value 201.3 ppm) occur along the eastern boundary of the survey area and extend approximately 150 meters in an East-West direction and 800 meters in a North-South direction. The anomalies are open to the east. The copper soil anomalies are believed to be located east and south of the historic Pass mineral showing (Minfile 082ESW111). Scattered plus 20 parts per billion gold values (maximum value 56.2 ppb) are associated with the copper anomalies.
