March 2, 2013: Vancouver, B.C. – North American Tungsten Ltd. (Stock Profile – TSXV:NTC) has released the results of the fall 2012 surface diamond drill program and the discovery of what is now known as the Dakota zone located a mere 700 metres from the main E zone.
A surface diamond drill program was put into place to follow up on surface diamond drill hole S09-07 (drilled in 2009) and the results from underground drilling in 2012. As a result a total of 9,140 feet in nine holes were drilled from one surface location.
Drilling and modelling program complete.
The surface program utilized a track-mounted diamond drill fitted with NQ-sized core. Nine holes averaging over 1,000 feet each were drilled with spacing at depth varying from 100 to 180 feet. Core recovery was excellent and close to 100 per cent. The core was logged by in-house geologists and samples were assayed both in-house and at ALS Laboratories, Vancouver. Visual estimates (using a black light) was also used as a final check.
Significant results from the nine holes (using a 0.3-per-cent WO3 cut-off) include 17.3 feet averaging 0.76 per cent WO3 and 0.31 per cent copper (hole S12-31), 11.6 feet averaging 0.30 per cent WO3 and 5.00 per cent zinc (hole S12-32) and 13.3 feet averaging 1.77 per cent WO3 (hole S12-39).
