Aucu Deposit – High Grade Gold Discovered in Major New Structure

20 October 2015


  • New high grade gold bearing structure identified in new trench:
    • 3 metres at 23.8 g/t gold including one metre at 53.6 g/t gold
  • Four major mineralised systems containing high grade gold at surface now identified
    • New structure parallel to the three existing structures

White Cliff Minerals Limited (“White Cliff” or the “Company”) is pleased to report that a major new mineralised structure (named the Camp Gold Zone-CGZ) has been identified at the Aucu gold project.

The CGZ occurs 400 metres south of the Southern Gold Zone and has the same sub-vertical dip and west-northwest (300 degrees) orientation (Figure 1). The CGZ has also been identified in hillside outcrops along strike 500 metres to the east of the initial trench discovery. The CGZ mineralisation occurs as a three metre wide shear zone containing brecciated quartz, sulphides and clays. CGZ mineralisation cuts across conglomerate, granodiorite, and mafic volcanics. Mineralisation, including visible gold, occurs in all three rock types. Assays from trench samples include 3 metres at 23.8 g/t gold including 1 metre at 53.6 g/t gold.

The Company will endeavour to drill to test the Camp Gold Zone during the current field season drilling campaign.
