Emgold Mining Expands Its Flagship Golden Arrow Property

VANCOUVER - Emgold Mining Corporation has staked an additional 137 unpatented mining claims at its Golden Arrow Property, NV. This increases the Property size to 17 patented claims and 494 unpatented claims controlled by the Company, or about 10,000 acres (4,050 hectares) in total area. The new claims extend the current property to the south covering an area of historic mine workings. The Property is located approximately 40 miles east of Tonopah in Nye County, Nevada. It is an advanced-stage exploration property with a comprehensive exploration database including geochemical sampling, geophysics, and over 201,000 feet of reverse circulation and diamond core drilling.

To date, two main exploration targets have been drilled on the Property focusing on bulk disseminated mineralization - the Gold Coin and Hidden Hill deposits. Numerous other targets have been identified for exploration. Emgold's management believes there is potential to expand both the Hidden Hill and Gold Coin resources and for discovery of other bulk disseminated mineralization on the Property. In addition, historic underground mine workings lie along the Page Fault and other structures on the Property indicating potential for vein style mineralization that has been subject to limited modern exploration to evaluate its potential.
