Little Squaw Reports Encouraging Drill Results From Chandalar, AK

Intercepts Include 5 Feet @ 0.457 oz/t Au

SPOKANE, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 10/04/06 -- Little Squaw Gold Mining Company (OTCBB: LITS) has received assays from 12 of the 39 orientation drill holes completed in September on its Chandalar, Alaska gold property (See Press Release 11-06, September 13, 2006). The reverse circulation drill results are from the Summit and Little Squaw prospects. Assays are pending for 27 holes drilled at the Kiska, Eneveloe, Jupiter, Ratchet Ridge, Uranus, Crystal, and Little Squaw East extension.

All drill holes that penetrated their targets at the Summit and Little Squaw prospects contain encouraging intercepts of gold values. Assay results confirm continuity of gold mineralization to the depth of drilling, which is 200 feet below surface. The drilling and the systematic surface soil and rock sampling confirm that individual gold-bearing quartz veins and shear zones persist over several thousand feet of strike length.

Assay highlights for the Summit drill holes (SUM 6 to 12) and the Little Squaw drill holes (LS 1 to 5) are presented in the tables below. High grade exploration potential is indicated by results in SUM 7, 8, 9, and 10, which returned values from 3.24 to 9.05 grams per tonne (g/t) gold (0.095 to 0.264 ounces per ton [oz/ton]) gold including a 5 foot intercept of 16.15 g/t (0.457 oz/ton) gold in SUM 8.

Dick Walters, President of Little Squaw, commented: "I am particularly encouraged by the Summit drill results because it is an extensive structure and our first probes there suggest interesting levels of widespread gold mineralization."

Summit Prospect

Summit prospect is a large fault or shear zone 100 or more feet wide that contains multiple veins and lenses of gold-bearing quartz. The holes were drilled from four stations along a 1,200 foot segment of the system. In addition to the results in Summit holes 7 through 10, the mineralized zone in SUM 7 and nearby SUM 8 may signal the presence of a high grade ore shoot ( > 1 oz/ton). Definition and step out drilling are required to delineate the continuity of the higher grade drill intercepts. SUM 12 is an intriguing hole that bottomed in a 95 foot section of low grade gold mineralization.

The results of the drilling, trenching, and soil samples indicate potential for discovery of a large tonnage, low grade deposit on the Summit prospect. The multi-veined, sheared and hydrothermally altered structure has been traced for 4,500 feet of strike length, and is open in both directions and to depth. Wide spaced orientation holes have probed less than a quarter of its identified strike length.

Little Squaw Prospect

Five holes were drilled from three sites spaced at 150 foot intervals along the Little Squaw structure. LS 2 returned 25 feet of 4.21 g/t (0.123 oz/ton gold, including 5 feet of 10.75 g/t [0.314 oz/ton]) gold. Results for the Little Squaw drilling are presented in the table below. Assay results for LS 2 are incomplete. Drilling difficulties forced abandonment of LS 3 before reaching its target.

Assay results are pending for the Little Squaw East drilling on-strike to the east. The presence of gold beyond both ends of the drilled area enhances the exploration potential. The Little Squaw gold quartz vein deposit warrants more drilling and continuation of surface trenching and sampling.

Approximately 30 percent of the assays of this orientation drilling program have been received. The results indicate that the Summit and Little Squaw prospects warrant further drilling to test the trend, grade, and continuity of gold mineralization.

Docker is sweeping across startups and enterprises alike, changing the way we build and ship applications.

With Docker, you can run and manage apps side-by-side - in isolated containers - resulting in better compute density. It's something that many developer...
If you are part of the cloud development community, you certainly know about “serverless computing,” almost a misnomer. Because it implies there are no servers which is untrue.
