Lake Victoria Reports Initial High Grade Drill Results From Uyowa Gold Project - Including One Meter Of 103 Grams Per Ton Of Gold

Stocks in this article: LVCA

(LVCA:OTCBB) - Lake Victoria Mining Company, Inc. (the “Company”) is pleased to announce the positive results of the reverse circulation drill program recently completed on its Uyowa gold project in Tanzania. Notable results received to date include: 17.6 g/t over 6 meters, 7.95 g/t Au over 9 meters, 4.1 g/t over 10 meters, 4.06 g/t Au over 13 meters and 10.41 g/t over 3 meters inclusive of a number of significant 1 meter intervals of 103 g/t Au, 33 g/t Au and 24 g/t Au respectively. The Uyowa project is located about 240 kilometers directly southwest of Mwanza.

Dr. Roger Newell, Chairman of Lake Victoria said “this first round of drilling has returned extremely encouraging results as well as demonstrating that higher grade gold zones of economic mining widths are present within the known mineralized trend. Furthermore, ground geophysics is providing the necessary back-up to define additional targets in which to focus our exploration efforts to discover additional gold occurrences within this prospective district.”

A total of 29 reverse circulation boreholes amounting to 2,470 meters was undertaken across the site of artisanal workings and environs in the northern block of the Uyowa Prospect. Drilling was aimed at testing the strike extensions of the known mineralized gold zone beneath an area of intense artisanal activity as well as to test a number of geophysical targets that have been defined from the recent ground magnetometer and IP Schlumberger surveys. Unlike the central and eastern part of the Prospect, which is represented by a single mineralized structure, the western part is comprised of at least 4 mineralized veins that generally, not only have increased widths, but, from the assay results received to date, also reflect substantially higher gold grades, across a strike length of some 300 meters (Refer Table 1).

Boreholes URC013 to URC018 were drilled in the western part of the prospect.

1 troy oz of gold = 31.103 gm of gold or 1 gm=0.03215 oz gold; i.e.: 17.6 g/t Au=0.56584 oz/t of gold


Previous mapping and channel sampling of a number of artisanal shafts (Refer Press Release 12 th September 2011 – “High Grade Gold Reported and Drilling Program Commences at Lake Victoria's Uyowa Gold Project- Tanzania, East Africa”) indicated a narrow, high grade quartz-rich gold bearing zone striking ENE and dipping steeply to the north beneath a 10 meter thick sand and lateritic duricrust cover. Drilling was conducted along 80 meter spaced N-S fences across a strike length of 1,300 meters with all boreholes angled between 50-65 degrees to the south.

In the central and eastern part of the Prospect, drilling identified a number of narrow and anomalous gold bearing zones in which a single continuous gold bearing silicified shear zone, having a grade greater than 0.5g/t gold over + 1 meter interval, is persistent throughout the area being tested. Gold mineralization occurs as free gold as well as in association with pyrite mineralization. Drill samples were collected across the gold bearing zones on 1 meter intervals with the results consequently representing a diluted grade to those higher grade assays that were reported earlier over narrow widths within the artisanal shafts.
