VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA — (Marketwire) — 05/24/11 — Choice Gold Corp. (CNSX: CHF) (“Choice Gold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Quantec Titan 24 deep penetrating induced polarization (IP) survey recently performed at its Sugarloaf Peak Gold Project has revealed a large high chargeability anomaly that extends underneath and outside the historically delineated gold resource. This chargeable zone is observed between the survey-limited depths of 200 to 600 metres. The anomalous zone has a strike length of approximately 2,500 metres and reaches a width of up to 1,000 metres in its central part. We invite the reader to refer to the following link for more information and diagrams illustrating the Titan 24 results: choicegoldcorp.com/sugarloaf-peak/quantec-titan– .. : . Simultaneously to the IP survey, a magnetotellurics (MT) survey was performed and indicates the presence of major deep structures believed to play a role in the gold mineralizing event.
Choice Gold now plans to expand its 2011 diamond drill program at Sugarloaf Peak to beyond the previously announced 10,000 metres in order to test this target and verify the extension of the surficial mineralization at depth.
“We are very excited by the results of the Titan 24 survey, which was undertaken to explore the possibility of expanding the boundaries of known mineralization along strike and at depth,” said Gianni Kovacevic, Choice Gold’s President & CEO. “These results will allow us to more effectively locate drill holes and we’re eager to test the potential for this anomaly to help Sugarloaf Peak grow beyond what the historical, non-NI 43-101 compliant resource calculation had estimated.”
Brigitte Dejou, P.Eng., Choice Gold’s Manager of Exploration, is the Qualified Person who has reviewed this news release and is responsible for the technical information reported herein.
