Montreal, Quebec -Golden Tag Resources Ltd. (TSX-V:GOG) announces the results of the winter diamond drilling program on the McCuaig property in Red Lake, Ontario held by the McCuaig JV (40% Golden Tag, 60% Rubicon Minerals Corporation). The McCuaig property is strategically located on the Red Lake Mine Trend which is host to >25 million ounces past gold production and current gold reserves. Diamond drilling consisting of 10 holes for a total of 1950 meters was completed in 2004 and was focused chiefly on the possible eastward extension of the 1900 Zone. Holes 51 to 54 and 57 to 59 encountered strong silicification within ultramafic rocks over a horizontal distance of 300 meters. Significant values of gold over 1.0 gAu/t were encountered only in two holes with the most significant value of 19.1 gAu/t over 1.0 meters associated with a narrow 1cm thick quartz vein bearing significant visible gold in hole 53. Additional holes in the program tested conceptual targets across the property.
The exploration program was supervised by Qualified Person Darwin Green, M.Sc.,P.Geo. Assaying of sawn NQ2 drill core was carried out by ALS Chemex Labs of Vancouver, B.C. and included inclusion of standard and blank samples for QA/QC purposes.
A summer program to review and evaluate target potential on the property, as well as a legal claim boundary survey to bring the claims to a mining lease is planned by the McCuaig JV partners.
