Castle Minerals Koda Hill Strong Gold Anomaly

Castle Minerals Limited (CDT) is pleased to announce that infill soil geochemical sampling testing the Koda Hill target has confirmed a strong and coherent gold anomaly over 2km of strike which is ready for drill testing. Koda Hill forms part of Castle’s Wa Project in north west Ghana and is located about 5.5km north of Castle’s Julie West gold deposit. Mapping and sampling 3.5 kilometres south of Koda Hill has reported a number of shallow artisanal workings and out cropping quartz veins. Rock chip sampling from outcropping veins and surface float has returned high grade gold values including: 17.8 g/t gold 23.2 g/t gold 7.9 g/t gold 8.7 g/t gold 9.9 g/t gold 13.8 g/t gold The orientation and dimension of these veins are not known and detailed mapping and sampling is required before drill testing is undertaken. These targets will be tested as part of a 10,000m RC drilling program planned to be completed before the end of 2010. Sampling is ongoing in this area. Castle’s Managing Director, Mr Mike Ivey, said “The Koda Hill anomaly is a direct result of our detailed sampling program that is progressing northwards along the 30km long Julie West – Jang corridor. We expect to define many more targets for drill testing before year end. The high grade rock chip results are evidence that numerous gold rich veins are present over an increasingly wide area giving us encouragement that we are exploring in a very large mineralised system”. Koda Hill soil geochemistry results showing a well defined east-west striking zone of strong soil anomalism over 2km. Rock chip samples over broad area. Orientation and dimension of the veins is unknown and further work is required to establish the geometry before drill testing.
