Golden Patriot Corp. Announces Encouraging Uranium Grades Returned on Lucky Boy Prospect
NEW YORK, Sept. 12, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- Golden Patriot, Corp. ("GPTC") (OTCBB:GPTC) is extremely pleased to announce that it has been informed by the exploration contractor of the Lucky Boy Uranium Prospect, that the initial samples have returned very encouraging uranium grades. This initial sample was designed to test for the viability of continuing on this prospect. Samples came back as high as .286% U. Upon receipt of these samples, a multi-hole drill program to test the extent of the ore is now being implemented. This drilling is planed for late October. "Initial interpretation of recent sampling is encouraging. Surface alteration, similar in character to mineralized outcrop in the open pit area has been traced along a northeasterly trend for some 600 to 800 feet, and may represent a potential extension of the ore zone. Also significant, is the apparent thickness of the quartzite host unit. At this time, based on mapping and observation of drill cuttings, it appears that the quartzite ranges from several 10's to greater than 60 feet thick. Adjacent districts provide strong evidence that grades increase near the contact with the underlying diabase lithology. With respect to mineability, there is evidence the quartzite host unit dips 25 degrees, and roughly parallel to slope. This orientation would be very favorable in consideration of open pit development," stated geologist Nicholas Barr.
