Vancouver, B.C., August 29, 2012: Serengeti Resources Inc. (SIR: TSX-V; 34S: FSE) announces the results from a drill program funded by Freeport-McMoRan of Canada Limited (“FMCC”) on the Tchentlo and Choo properties, which are located west of the Mount Milligan mine development project in the Quesnel Trough, BC. Highlights of the program include the intersection of structurally controlled mineralization in one hole at Tchentlo, grading 0.73% Cu, 0.81 g/t Au, 8.4 g/t Ag, 0.05% Mo over 3.2 meters, and gold mineralization intersected in three widely separated holes on the Choo property, with the best intercept of 1.53 g/t Au over 4 meters.
|Reported Analytical Results|
|Property||Hole||From (m)||To (m)||Interval (m)||Gold g/t||Copper %|
|T-12-06, 08, 09 no significant values|
|C-12-03, 05 no significant values|
A total of 2842 meters was drilled in 12 holes testing seven separate targets in a program completed from mid-June to mid-July. Three of the holes at Tchentlo (T-12-04, 05, 5A) tested a strong induced polarization (IP) and magnetic anomaly with coincident Cu-Mo-Au-Pt soil anomalies. Scattered gold anomalism was returned from hole T-12-04 and several zones of structurally controlled copper-moly mineralization hosted in diorites and gabbro were intersected in holes T-05, 5A collared from the same drill set-up.
On the Choo property, three very widely spaced holes (up to five kilometers apart) encountered gold-anomalous intervals (1.53 g/t Au over 4 meters, 0.55 g/t Au over 8 meters and 0.66 g/t Au over 5 meters) at or near the contacts of andesite or feldspar porphyry dykes.
The results from this recently completed drill program are being integrated with the balance of the exploration data and evaluated to determine the appropriate follow-up program.
