Sierra Gold Corporation Plans More Aggressive Bulk Sampling for Diamonds On Pampana North Property
TORONTO, Feb. 6, 2007 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- Sierra Gold Corporation (Pink Sheets:SGCP) announces plans for more aggressive bulk sampling in the diamond region of the Pampana property. Gem quality diamonds have been confirmed on the Pampana North Property as a result of recent test samples from the company's ongoing bulk sampling program. This discovery confirms geologist Hendrik Velduyzen's statement in his 43-101 report (2006) that 'certain stones found in the gold bearing gravel are similar to those found in kimberlite and suggest the presence of diamonds'. The geological team will return to the area where they collected a two-ton sample yielding six diamonds, five of which were gem quality. The company needs to do more extensive testing to determine the potential value of the diamonds. The value of the gold reserves is $586,404,000 and does not include any diamond potential.
