Vancouver, BC, September 13, 2010 – Taku Gold Corp. (the “Company”) (TSXV: TAK) is pleased to announce that it has commenced a deep auger-type soil geochemical survey on the 146-claim (3,022ha) Quartz property located about 40 km south of Dawson City, Yukon. The property covers the left limit of Quartz Creek where significant placer gold has been produced historically and production is still ongoing. The property is road accessible from Dawson City. It is expected that about 1000 soil samples will be collected.
Soil sampling followed by mechanized trenching has proven to be an effective tool for defining drill targets in the White Gold area where outcrop exposure is generally very poor. This method led to discoveries at the Golden Saddle and Arc deposits on Kinross’s White Gold property (Underworld press release Jan. 27, 2010) and the Supremo, Latte and Double Double zones on Kaminak’s Coffee property (Kaminak press release Aug. 24, 2010). Taku is following the same footprint geochemical strategy on the Quartz property. Anomalous results from the initial, wide-spaced survey will be followed up with more detailed soil sampling and mechanized trenching in order to identify and define drill targets prospective for Golden Saddle or Coffee-style gold mineralization.
“We are confident that systematic, integrated exploration work in the Dawson area will lead to top-quality drill targets,” stated Zak Dingsdale, President and CEO.
