VANCOUVER, Jan. 14, 2013 /CNW/ - Mawson Resources Limited ("Mawson") TSX - MAW; Frankfurt - MXR, PINKSHEETS- MWSNF has discovered further gold mineralization at the Rajapalot project in Northern Finland with grab samples returning up to 1,520 g/t gold. Mineralization has now been discovered within an area of 4 square kilometres at Rajapalot, which lies 8 kilometres east of the initial
Rompas gold discovery.
Mr Hudson states, "The frequency of discovery at Rajapalot over such a large area is impressive given the limited outcrop, which is restricted to small topographic highs, in a generally swampy terrain. Grades up to 1,520 g/t gold continue to excite and the disseminated and more sulphidic style of mineralization, such as that sampled at Palokas, is of interest as it forms a potential bulk tonnage style of mineralization that is amenable to geophysical targeting undercover."
A summary of sample statistics is shown in Table 1 and all results received to date are shown in Tables 2 and 3. Channel samples are considered representative of the in-situ mineralization sampled and channel widths quoted approximate the true width of mineralization; rock chip panel sampling is considered moderately representative of in-situ mineralization, while grab samples are selective by nature and are unlikely to represent average grades on the property.
In other news, diamond drilling is ongoing 8 kilometres west of Rajapalot, at the North Rompas prospect. Drilling is targeting structures containing high grade gold, where channel sample results include 1.40 m at 2,529 g/t gold and 5.1 % uranium oxide. To date 25 holes for 2,095 metres have been completed.
First results are expected to be received over the next 3 to 4 weeks.
