Golden Predator Encounters Multiple Intercepts, Including 56.5 m of 3.2 g/t Gold, at the Newly Discovered Bohemian High-Grade Zone, Brewery Creek Project, Yukon

Dec 08, 2010, 11:16 ET from Golden Predator Corp.

VANCOUVER, December 8, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Golden Predator Corp. (TSX: GPD) (the "Company") is extremely pleased to announce results for the last 10 holes of its 2010 program at its Brewery Creek Project. Of major significance are results from the newly discovered Bohemian high-grade Zone, including 50.5 m of 2.79 g/t Au beginning at a depth of 15.5 m in core hole BC10-168, 56.5m of 3.20 g/t Au beginning at a depth of 27 m in core hole BC10-170, and 27.5m of 1.15 g/t Au from a depth of 39.5 m in core hole BC10-171.

"We are tremendously pleased with our 2010 drill program results from Brewery Creek," said Chairman & CEO William M. Sheriff. "This makes the third major discovery from our 2010 drill programs, and we are looking forward to the resumption of drilling on both Grew Creek and Brewery Creek in February 2011, and Clear Creek when conditions allow, with plans for resource estimates on all three by year end 2011."

Brewery Creek

The Company's late-season drilling focused on the eastern extension of the 15 km long main mineralized trend at Brewery Creek and included seven oriented core holes from the Bohemian Zone totaling 948.54 m and three RC holes from the Golden Zone totaling 399.29 m(1). Approximately 130 historic holes had previously been drilled in a widespread area around and within the Bohemian zone; however, prior to this year's drilling, these did not define coherent continuous mineralization. The first higher grade intercept in the area was Alexco Resource Corp.'s hole BC06-127 which intersected 5.14 g/t Au over 34.88 m. Following up on this hole, Golden Predator's current drilling has been successful in partially delineating a newly discovered high-grade zone that traverses through the Bohemian Zone and projects toward the Schooner Zone approximately 400 m to the east. Yukon property holding map, Brewery Creek project overview, drill plan, and Bohemian Zone maps can be found on the Company's website at http://www.goldenpredator.com/documents/NR10-37_Brewery-Creek.pdf.

Historic trenching at Schooner yielded 2.58 g/t Au over 30 m in trench TR98-SK10 and 2.92 g/t Au over 12 m in trench TR 98-SK7. Current drilling has delineated mineralization along more than 200 m of strike with an estimated 15 to 25 m true thickness, and remains open at depth and along strike. Both gold and arsenic in soils along this trend show that the system is likely to continue easterly to Schooner at a minimum.

Expansion of this newly identified high-grade zone will be a top priority when drilling resumes in February, 2011. Significant progress has been made by Golden Predator at the Pacific, Blue, Lower Fosters, Golden, Lucky, and Bohemian Zones during the past two years, with 59 holes drilled by the Company in addition to the 14 holes drilled by Alexco since the last resource calculation in 2003. As a result of the Company's successful 2009 and 2010 drill programs at Brewery Creek, Golden Predator plans to initiate an updated resource calculation in Q2-2011. This updated resource calculation will also incorporate data from additional holes planned for drilling in the early spring 2011 campaign. Exact timing of the update will be dependent on the progress of the 2011 drilling to delineate the Bohemian-Schooner corridor.

The Company's Brewery Creek Property, located 55 km due east of Dawson City, Yukon comprises 793 quartz claims over 165 km(2). Brewery Creek was the site of a heap-leach gold mine which operated from 1996-2002 and produced 279,541 ounces of gold. Current resources remaining on the Property include an Indicated Resource of 3.98 MM tonnes grading 1.135 g/t Au and an Inferred Resource of 2.2 MM tonnes averaging 2.01 g/t Au (Diment and Simpson, 2009). The Brewery Creek Project is authorized under a Type A Water License with an expiry date of December 31, 2021, subject to the restrictions and conditions contained in the Yukon Water Act and Regulations. The Project also has a production license with an expiry date of December 31, 2021.
