of definition drilling from 137 holes.
At the Masato target, Oromin plans to drill four holes as an initial test of a large open-ended geochemical anomaly currently measuring 500 metres
by 1,500 meters in size.
At the Garrapata area five holes totaling 650 metres
are proposed to test approximately 200 metres
of strike length southeast from the Promontorio Shaft.
Grota Seca East - A 20 metre
wide zone extending approximately 540 metres
along strike hosting 3 veins that contain 11 higher grade intersections at an average thickness of 1.
A 3,000 metre
northwest trending surface gold geochemistry anomaly (greater than 50ppb Au) up to 1,000 metres
wide over much of its length was tested by 13 fences of RAB drill holes spaced 20 metres
apart on lines at typically 200 metre
Barbacoa prospect: The new drilling on 40 metre
fences over a strike length of 220 metres
shows that the northwest trending mineralisation occurs within three closely spaced structures with true thicknesses of 1-10 metres
dipping at 50-60 degrees to the southwest and with a weighted grade (at 1 g/t Au cut off) of 3.
McCreary, President and CEO of Baffinland stated that, "The assay results of the nine holes released today are nothing short of spectacular, with multiple intercepts in certain holes totalling as much as 265 metres
of 65% iron and the average being almost 200 metres
of multiple intercepts per hole grading almost 66% iron.
In a new drill hole located 90 metres
to the north of KD-39, hole KD-41 intersected 8.
Diamond drill hole LCD-62, intersected 5 metres
at a grade of 3.
At Kofi SW Zone C drilling will concentrate on extensions to the deposit, following up on a previous single fence some 400 metres
to the south which intersected 9 metres
The mineralised trench is representative of an outcrop extending over an area of 165 metres
by 75 metres
consisting of advanced argillic to strongly silicified hydrothermal breccia in which there is minor alunite in vugs, fine disseminated pyrite, minor quartz veins, trace stibnite, locally in narrow, ptygmatic veins, as well as pervasive limonite in fractures and throughout many of the fragments.
It is located at the southeastern end of the property, approximately 500 metres
northwest of the Baba Gold Zone, and is open in all directions.
in association with the previously reported 2.
Hole EGD008, drilled on an azimuth of 270 degrees, inclined at -75 degrees and collared approximately 450 metres
northeast of, and parallel to, hole EGD006, has intersected approximately 120 metres
of very strong chalcopyrite and bornite (copper sulphide) mineralization with minor visible gold associated with bornite, beginning at a down-hole depth of 1380 metres
(true depth of approximately 1340 metres
The locations of the two declines has been determined based on the results of 23,981 metres
of diamond drilling completed in 104 holes in the Dona Amelia zone during 2003 and 2004 as well as 1,318.
