A total of 273 samples were collected from this phase (including 49 quality control (QC) samples), with 27% of samples (excluding QC samples) yielding greater than 0.1 g/t Au and an average grade of all samples of 0.125 g/t Au. Gold results varied from below detection up to highs of 2.43, 1.21 and 1.07 g/t, and antimony from 1.78 ppm to 15 samples above 1%, with highs of 5.17, 7.08 and 8.42 percent. Gold and antimony define a coincident anomaly over 600 by 200 metres. Arsenic and mercury are also strongly anomalous, with highs of 0.51, 0.14 and 0.10 percent As, and 104.5, 69.2 and 47.4 ppm Hg, both of which showing a good correlation with gold, and thus highlighting their use as pathfinder elements. A sample map and table of results are available on Medgold's website at http://www.medgoldresources.com/medgold-italy-mining.asp.These results are considered to represent a distal zone of mineralization associated with a high-grade and high-angle structural feeder-zone, which is commonly found in Carlin-type deposits. Vector analysis of the geochemistry highlights a strong increase in Au-Sb anomalism toward the inferred high-angle feeder faults. These represent clear exploration drill targets where Au-Sb grades are expected to increase with depth.
