Initial diamond drilling at East Asia Mineralsâ€™ flagship Miwah Gold Project in Aceh Province, Northern Sumatra, has returned positive intersections.Results from the first two diamond drill holes include 3.29 grams/tonne gold over 66 metres in a wider interval of 158 metres @ 1.71 grams/tonne.Another hole encountered 1.97 grams/tonne gold over 57.1 metres, including 2.78 grams/tonne over 38.3 metres.The results support the interpretation of shallow out-flowed, laterally extensive gold mineralization controlled by multiple northerly trending higher-grade feeder structures that cut steeply through the 1.2km-long (east-west) Miwah Gold Zone.The two holes were drilled in opposite directions from a common drill pad about 200 metres east of the currently mapped western end of the Main Miwah Gold Zone. The mineralization is open.East Asiaâ€™s president and CEO Michael Hawkins says, â€œWe are greatly encouraged by the width and tenor of the Miwah gold mineralization.â€œThe mineralization we intercepted supports the company's earlier confidence that high-grade structural feeder controls on the Main Miwah Gold Zone will result in higher overall grades than the 1.2 grams/tonne gold average from surface channel sampling.â€œWe have achieved 3D drill core validation of the potential for a large lateral gold deposit along the 1.2km Miwah Gold Zone. â€œIn addition, the South Miwah Bluff Gold Zone appears to represent exposure of the underlying higher-grade gold-bearing structures and displays the upside potential for continued exploration of the prospective Miwah land tenement. â€œIt is our intention to test these zones over the coming months, and with success, to progress towards drill definition of NI43-101 compliant resources.â€www.EAminerals.com
