Latest Diamond Drill Results from the Porcupine Target, SMP Gold Project (up to 52m grading 3.7g/t Au)
New Gold Zone drilled at Porcupine (10m grading 5.8g/t Au)
Helio Resource Corp. ("Helio" or the "Company") (TSX-V: HRC) is pleased to report the first results from the 2010 diamond drill programme at the SMP Gold Project in the Lupa Goldfields, Tanzania.
Three drill holes are reported herein, namely GPD-63, GPD-64, and GPD-65. These holes were drilled from east to west into the higher grade core of the Porcupine Target to test new structural information developed from oriented drill-core studies conducted in late 2009.
The highlights from the drilling are summarised as follows:
A long section showing the location of these drill intercepts in relation to the location of previous drill intercepts is shown below.
These results demonstrate the potential of the Porcupine target to host a number of variably oriented mineralised structures. Further structural interpretation and targeting of these structural intersections is planned in the near future.
Results are presented on the Company's website, and a revised 3d model will be available on www.corebox.net through the Company's website:
ABOUT THE SMP GOLD PROJECT
Helio, through its 100% owned subsidiary BAFEX Tanzania Ltd., can earn a 100% interest in five contiguous licences, which cover a 35km strike length of the Saza Shear Zone.
Since June 2006, the Company has drill-tested sixteen targets. Fifteen of the targets have intersected bedrock-hosted gold mineralisation, the most advanced being the Porcupine and Kenge Targets (see the Corporate Presentation on the Home Page of the Company's website at www.helioresource.com).
Chris MacKenzie, M.Sc., C.Geol., Helio's COO and a Qualified Person as designated by NI 43-101, supervises the exploration at the SMP project, including the sampling and quality assurance / quality control programmes, and has reviewed the contents of this news release. Intercepts are reported as drilled widths, true width is estimated to be 80+% of reported width. Continuous 1m samples were taken every through the main mineralised zone, and 2m samples were taken outside this. Samples were split with a core saw and one half was retained on site. Samples were submitted to the lab with internal QA/QC checks including the use of blanks and standards (ave. 1 every 17 samples) and duplicates (ave. 1 every 25 samples). Samples were assayed at the SGS Laboratory in Mwanza, Tanzania by 50g gold fire assay. As well as the Company's internal QA/QC programme, SGS also applied their own internal QA/QC programme, consisting of insertion of standards and duplicates. Unless otherwise stated, weighted average intercepts are calculated between the uppermost and lowermost samples within the main mineralised zone using a 1.0g/t Au cut-off and may include some internal waste.
