Mr. Kenneth Cunningham reports


Miranda Gold Corp. has started drilling at Big Blue, a sediment-hosted gold project in Lander County, Nevada. Miranda’s exploration funding partner, Ramelius Resources Ltd. („Ramelius“) (ASX:RMS), plans to drill up to three holes for a total of 3,600 ft (1,097 m). This is Miranda’s first drill campaign of the 2011 season.

The area to be tested with this first phase of drilling contains soils with gold values from non-detectable to a high of 0.025 oz Au/t (0.850 g Au/t) and rocks with gold values from non-detectable to a high of 1.70 oz Au/t (58.2 g Au/t). Historic drilling from three holes in the area intersected 20 ft (6.1 m) of 0.007 oz Au/t (0.240 g Au/t), 5 ft (1.5 m) of 0.032 oz Au/t (1.10 g Au/t), and 10 ft (3 m) of 0.071 oz Au/t (2.44 g Au/t). Inferred northerly trending controls to mineralization are indicated by local disrupted bedding, brecciation, oxidation, quartz veins, silicification, and structurally controlled jasperoid.

Three west or northwest-directed 1200-ft (366 m) angle holes are planned to be drilled on an approximately 1,250 ft (380 m) long cross section through the target area. These holes will collar in chert and siliceous sediments in the upper plate of the Roberts Mountain Thrust and test more favorable lower-plate carbonates and inferred northerly faults at depth in the vicinity of the surface and historic drill-indicated gold anomalies. Previous drilling has not tested below a depth of 500 ft (152 m); lower-plate carbonates are projected to be encountered at a depth of from 175 to 375 ft (53 to 114 m) in the planned holes.

The Big Blue Project consists of 255 unpatented lode mining claims covering 8.2 sq mi (21.2 sq km) located in the Toiyabe Range, 13 miles (21 km) north of Austin, Nevada. The project is on the south margin of the Callaghan Window, a large area exposing Cambrian- through Silurian-age lower-plate carbonate rocks in the footwall of the Roberts Mountains Thrust. The lower-plate sequence includes the Roberts Mountains, Hanson Creek and Pogonip Formations, of which all are known to be favorable hosts for large, sediment-hosted gold systems in Nevada.

A target analogue for the Big Blue project is the Northumberland deposit in the Toquima Range 39 miles (63 km) south of Austin, Nevada. Both the Northumberland deposit and Miranda’s Big Blue project are within lower-plate windows showing alteration and gold mineralization, but are off the well-defined Carlin and Cortez Trends. The Northumberland and the Callaghan windows are both associated with similar district-scale stream-sediment anomalies.

The data disclosed in this press release have been reviewed and verified by President & CEO Ken Cunningham, P.G., MSc. Geology and Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.

Unsere Einschätzung:

Miranda setzt die Explorationstätigkeiten wie geplant fort – und der hieraus zu erwartende Newsflow sollte die Aktie dann auch wieder positiv beeinflussen.
