Vancouver, B.C., September 03, 2013: Serengeti Resources Inc. (SIR: TSX-V; 34S: FSE) reports that it has completed the initial phase of its summer exploration program on nine of its properties located in the Quesnel Trough and Stikine Arch of British Columbia. Field work in the June / August period included geochemical sampling, prospecting and geological mapping following up on known targets and generated new targets on existing properties and on ground acquired earlier in the year. Results have been received and compiled for several of these and an immediate follow-up work program is planned on two of the properties in September.
The RCN (Red Chris North) property comprises two blocks totaling 5,675 Hectares (Ha), located 10 km north of a recent copper-gold discovery by Colorado Resources in NW BC. Results from the recent work on RCN include a newly identified copper-gold mineralized outcrop (three grab samples average 3,870 ppm Cu, 250 ppb Au), a nearby larger outcrop of intense quartz-sericite-pyrite (QSP) alteration along with the highest copper and two highest gold silt geochemical anomalies from the survey. The prospective area is largely overburden and tree covered and several small aeromagnetic anomalies are also present, further enhancing the target area. Follow-up soil sampling and additional prospecting are planned in September.
On the Osalinka property, located 75km NW of Kwanika, wide-spaced reconnaissance soil sampling identified a copper soil and silt geochemical anomaly associated with a favourable magnetic trend along three kilometers of strike length. One sample returned very high contrast copper, gold and palladium values, from an area of extensive overburden and tree cover. Follow-up sampling and prospecting of this target and one other target area on the property are planned for September.
In addition, two new properties, one in the Mt. Milligan area and the other adjacent to the Kemess North gold-copper deposit, have recently been acquired 100% by staking.
One of these, the SYL property, a 1,770 Ha claim located 25 km NW of Mt Milligan copper-gold mine, encompassing an overburden covered, prospective magnetic domain in a favourable structural setting. Two reconnaissance Ah and selective extraction soil transects have been completed and results are awaited.
The most recent property acquisition is the UDS property, a 1,425 Ha claim located 4 km east of and adjoining Aurico Gold’s Kemess North underground copper-gold project. The UDS property covers a structurally complex area of rocks similar to those that host and immediately overlie the nearby Kemess North deposit. An untested, open ended IP geophysical anomaly adjoins the block and minor gold-copper showings occur within the UDS claim. A compilation of prior work will be undertaken to determine the best exploration approach going forward.
