Vancouver, British Columbia - Cedar Mountain Exploration Inc. (CED: TSXV) (“Cedar Mountain” or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has commenced the 2011 diamond drill program at the Kelly Creek Project on the Seward Peninsula, Alaska. Cedar Mountain will be targeting 5,000 metres of diamond core drilling on three high priority multi-kilometre-scale gold targets, and collecting 4,000 geochem soil samples on the property to identify additional drill targets.
“We are very excited that the 2011 exploration program is now underway as we focus on drilling several of the large untested gold-in-soil prospects identified by the 2010 soil sampling program,” stated Charles Chebry, President and CEO. “Cedar Mountain’s strong technical team has a long history exploring for gold in Alaska and is set to aggressively advance this project.”
The objective of the drilling and soil sampling program is to discover a new gold district, targeting a near-surface bulk tonnage gold deposit. The exploration program will be based out of a 24-man camp located near the Company’s 800 metre airstrip at Kelly Creek (further details on the program can be found in the Company news release dated May 12, 2011).
The Kelly Creek Property is located on the Seward Peninsula, Alaska, 145 km north of Nome. Kelly Creek is a drill-permitted early-stage gold exploration property comprising 105,280 acres (42,605 hectares) that cover an entirely new gold district. Historic results indicate the presence of disseminated gold deposits in metasedimentary rocks. These deposits have similarities to disseminated gold deposits in Nevada and are a new type for the region.
The Company’s disclosure of a technical or scientific nature in this press release has been prepared by Dr. Travis Hudson, registered geologist, who serves as a Qualified Person under the definition of National Instrument 43-101. The Kelly Creek project represents an early stage property and does not contain any mineral resources as defined by National Instrument 43-101.
