Alderon Resource Corp. (TSX.V: ADV) (OTCQX: ALDFF) (“Alderon”) is pleased to announce assay results from the ongoing drill program on the Kamistiatusset (“Kami”) Iron Ore Project in western Labrador. Highlights include:
|Length (meters)||Total Iron %|
“It’s great to see continuous strong results,” says Mark Morabito, President & CEO of Alderon. “We are on our way to reach our goal of defining 400 to 500 million tonnes at a grade between 28 and 32% iron.”
All drill holes to date have tested the northeast portion of the Rose Lake Central Zone. The latest holes further confirm the continuity as well as the extension of the mineralized zone ahead of the National Instrument 43-101 resource estimate scheduled for the first quarter of 2011. The potential tonnage and grade quoted above are conceptual in nature and it is uncertain if further exploration will delineate a mineral resource.
Complete assay highlights with drill plan maps and sections are posted on the Alderon website at: http://www.alderonmining.com/projects/kami/
True widths of the reported intercepts vary depending on the angle of the individual drill holes and are estimated to be between 10% and 100% of the core interval as reported. Samples were prepared from sawn NQ-sized half-core sections on site in Labrador. Split drill core samples are then sent to SGS Mineral Services in Lakefield, Ontario for analyses. Total iron analysis is performed using X-ray fluorescence (XRF) and the magnetic component is determined by Satmagan magnetic analysis. Standards, blanks, and duplicate assays are included at regular intervals in each sample batch submitted from the field as part of an ongoing Quality Assurance/Quality Control program.
Alderon is a leading iron ore exploration and development company in Canada. The Kami Project is located within an existing iron ore district and is surrounded by producing iron ore mines. The Alderon team is comprised of skilled professionals with significant iron ore expertise to advance Kami towards production.
Alderon’s exploration work on the Kami Property is supervised by Edward Lyons, P.Geo., the Chief Geologist for Alderon and a Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101.
