Tanzanian Royalty Exploration Corporation is pleased to announce the receipt of further positive assay results from the ongoing Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling program in the Footwall Zone at the Company's Buckreef Project in the Lake Victoria Goldfields of Tanzania.
The latest results include values that are among the best reported to date by any operator at Buckreef, notes Joseph K. Kahama, Chairman and Chief Operating Officer (Tanzania). Drill-hole BMRC512 returned 3.0m averaging 1.29 g/t gold from 38m; BMRC523 included 6.0m averaging 2.67g/t from 13m; BMRC536 returned 5.0m averaging 2.62g/t from 60m; BMRC537 returned 6.0m averaging 4.87g/t from 76m while BMRC538 returned 6.0m averaging 1.63g/t from 37m. True widths are estimated to be 60% of the apparent widths. The RC drilling program has so far seen the completion of 29 RC holes aggregating 1,183metres.
The Main mineralized shear zone at Buckreef includes the Buckreef Main Zone, Buckreef North Zone and Buckreef South Zone which are constrained between two cross-cutting faults. Buckreef Footwall and Hanging wall zones are developed on either side of the Buckreef Main Zone as fault splays from the main Buckreef fault shear zone. These splays were probably developed during the reactivation of the main Buckreef northeast shear. The near surface intercepts on the Hanging wall and Footwall zones are developed in the oxide zone and within quartz-carbonate-pyrite altered zones of basaltic and dolerite rock units. These particular units offer the best opportunity to increase the size of the proposed open pit at Buckreef.
The Footwall Zone is located 50-100m in the immediate vicinity of the Buckreef Main zone while the Hanging wall Zone is located approximately 75m in the Hanging wall of the Buckreef Main zone. As part of the ongoing resource definition drilling program at Buckreef, the Company commenced a Phase 2 RC drilling program on the Buckreef Main Zone and its northern strike extension to verify previous drilling results and establish the strike and down-dip continuity of mineralization identified in previous drilling.
