Minco Announces Initial Changkeng Drill Results and Extension of Mineralization

 


Minco Gold Corporation (the "Company" or "Minco Gold") (TSX:MMM/NYSE Alternext US:MGH/FSE:MI5) is pleased to report the assay results of the first 22 diamond drill holes completed for the Changkeng Gold Project located in Guangdong Province, China. The Company conducted a comprehensive exploration program on the project including approximately 12,000 metres of combined step out and in-fill diamond drilling in 61 holes. The first 22 holes mainly tested the wider spaced drill targets throughout the entire property.

Overall the drilling was very successful by extending gold mineralization for approximately 300 metres along strike from previously defined resources (announced March 10, 2008) to the east-northeast and also to the eastern Changkeng property boundary. The strike length of the known gold mineralization has now been increased from 900 metres to 1,200 metres in length.


Assay results are highlighted by the following intersections:
  • CK2014: 5.15 g/t gold over 14.60 m, including 9.66 g/t gold over 4.0 m
  • CK2022: 3.93 g/t gold over 11.2 m, including 8.15 g/t gold over 2.0 m AND 7.74 g/t gold over 21.85 m, including 10.55 g/t gold over 6.8 m
  • CK2024: 5.48 g/t gold over 4.0 m AND 3.07 g/t gold over 5.0 m
  • CK2027: 6.36 g/t gold over 5.72 m
  • CK2028: 5.26 g/t gold over 13.9 m, including 8.08 g/t gold over 4.60 m
  • CK2030: 4.84 g/t gold over 10.0 m, including 8.19 g/t gold over 4.0 m
  • CK2036: 4.87 g/t gold over 6.9 m, including 11.20 g/t gold over 1.85 m
  • CK2040: 5.20 g/t gold over 8.22 m, including 7.28 g/t gold over 5.13 m

True widths for the mineralized zones are typically from 75% to 95% of the stated intercepts. Please visit the Company's website at www.mincogold.ca to view a map of the drill hole locations.

Minco Gold will continue to release the results from the drill program when all the necessary check sampling has been completed and verified on the Changkeng Gold project. The Company has also engaged P&E Engineering to complete an updated NI 43-101 compliant resource estimation.

Samples were prepared and assayed at PRA Kunming lab (Process Research Associated Ltd.) with supervision of a certified BC assayer. Samples were assayed with fire assay and AAS or gravimetric finish. Assay results were further checked at PRA's Vancouver lab as an external check. Samples have also been sent to ASL Chemex Laboratories in Guangzhou, Guangdong Province, PRC for additional check analysis. Reference materials were inserted by Minco geologists as part of a comprehensive quality assurance/quality control program.

Mr. Dwayne Melrose, P. Geo, Vice President Exploration for Minco Gold, has reviewed this news release and is the Qualified Person responsible for verification and quality assurance of the company's exploration data and analytical results.
