2016 and Prior
|Oct 13, 2011 |
October 13, 2011, Timmins, Ontario - Moneta Porcupine Mines Inc. (TSX: ME / OTC: MPUCF / XETRA: MOP) ("Moneta") is pleased to announce that it has engaged a consultant to prepare a NI 43-101 resource estimate on three gold zones in its 100% owned Golden Highway Project.
The resource estimate will include initial NI 43-101 resource estimates on the 55 Zone and Southwest Zone, in addition to an updated NI 43-101 resource on the Windjammer South zone (currently 517,000oz -- NI 43-101 - all categories). The resource estimate is expected to be communicated via press release before November 15, 2011, with the final report being filed on SEDAR thereafter.
Ian C. Peres, President and CEO of Moneta commented, "This resource estimate will provide shareholders with an update on the Golden Highway Project drilling successes over the last eighteen months since January 2010. With a healthy $4M+ treasury, and ongoing exploration of the favorable geological setting of the Golden Highway Project over a 12km strike length, Moneta is well-positioned with excellent potential for future resource expansion."
The 55 Zone, Southwest Zone and Windjammer South gold zones are located along four kilometers of the same Timiskaming sedimentary corridor with similar geology and mineralization. The three zones are each separated by less than one kilometre, with additional gold mineralization identified between the zones representing an ongoing exploration focus and demonstrating potential for further resource expansion.
Moneta holds a 100% interest in 5 core projects strategically located on or along the Destor Porcupine Fault Zone, one of the key structural features in the Abitibi Greenstone belt in Ontario, with excellent infrastructure including access roads, water, electricity, and mills. Moneta's land position is one of the best and largest in the world class Timmins Camp -- after three gold producers -- including a commanding position in the emerging Golden Highway Camp.
