Golden Predator Commences 3,500 m Drill Program at Eureka Project, Yukon Territory

Jun 10, 2010, 14:59 ET from Golden Predator Corp.


VANCOUVER, June 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Golden Predator Corp. (TSX: GPD) (the "Company") announces that drilling has commenced on its road-accessible Eureka Project, located approximately 49 km northeast from the White Gold discovery of Underworld Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: UW). A 3,500 m drill program has been planned in up to 54 reverse circulation drill holes targeting significant trench and soil geochemical anomalies.

Golden Predator's Eureka project includes over 300 contiguous quartz mining claims located within the Dawson Range lying 90 km southeast of Dawson City. The Eureka and Black Hills Creeks, which drain the Eureka Project, have been active placer mining areas since the Klondike Gold Rush. Reported gold production from these Creeks from 1978 to 2005 was 60,195 and 92,476 oz Au, respectively. Access to the property is via the Hunker Creek -South Klondike road system.

Previous explorers identified three showings (Allen, Wealth, and Childs) exhibiting mineralization occurring in a series of subparallel NS-NNW-trending breccia zones composed of quartz, pyrite, arsenopyrite, and Fe-Oxides (Limonite and goethite). The breccias zones remain open in both directions along trend. In 2006, Strategic Metals Ltd. (TSX-V: SMD) drilled ten RC holes on the Wealth showing and returned best results of 0.592 gpt Au over 18.3 m in hole PDH-ER-05, 0.30 gpt Au over 15.25 m in hole PDH-ER-03, 0.48 gpt Au over 3.05 m in hole PDH-ER-04, 0.32 gpt Au over 9.15 m in hole PDH-ER-06, and 0.42 gpt Au over 3.05 m in hole PDH-ER-02. Subsequent trenching and soil geochemical analyses, detailed below, have identified high-priority drill targets for the current drill program.

Golden Predator's initial 2010 RC program at Eureka is designed to test the following targets:

    -   moderate to strong gold-in-soil geochemical values which varies from
        up to 672 ppb Au from a 6 km long by up to 2 km wide anomaly;
    -   down dip extensions of mineralized drill-intercepts identified by
        previous explorers at the Wealth showing, and
    -   trenching results previously reported by other companies at the
        Allen, Wealth, and Childs prospects including 2009 trench results at
        the Wealth showing reporting:
