TORONTO, Dec. 3, 2012 /CNW/ - Viking Gold Exploration Inc. (TSX-V:VGC), the "Company" or "Viking Gold", is pleased to announce that it has recently commenced exploratory drilling on the 8 claims under option from Globex Mining Enterprises Inc. (TSX:GMX). These claims are located in Guyenne Township, near the city of Amos, within the Abitibi Region of Quebec.
This drill program is the commencement of Viking Gold's exploration work under its 50% earn-in agreement with Globex. As previously reported in the Company's September 4, 2012 press release, one drill hole originally drilled in 1988, returned 5.38 g/t gold over 6.2 metres and there has been very little work done since that time. The Company plans to drill 10 new holes for a total of approximately 1,200 metres.
Neither the TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this press release.
