Dalradian Resources Announces Results of 14.673 Meter drill program at Curraghinalt, including 13,8 g / t Au over 3,35 m, 10,43 g / t Au over 3,75 and m 22,83 g / t Au over 1,48 m

03.05.2012 TORONTO, ONTARIO – Dalradian Resources Inc. .("Dalradian" or the "Company") (TSX:DNA) has the final results of the outstanding holes from the drill program, the 2011 and the first quarter 2012 at the company's Curraghinalt deposit in County Tyrone (Northern Ireland) was performed, get. In this communication, 54 Holes (43 Infill- and 11 Step-out drilling) reported.

The drilling of infill wells are similar to the modeled and reported resource (see press release dated 30. November 2012), while the step-out holes extend the known mineralization along strike and down dip and has outlined new mineralized veins.

The deposit remains open along strike, down dip and strike across the open.

These results represent the end of the current phase of infill drilling on the surface of the deposit at Curraghinalt. For the next phase of the infill drilling program, an application was made, to enable the drilling of the existing underground mines from. This phase of drilling to the end of the third quarter 2012 be taken.

At the 1. July 2012 are following the completion and integration of the ongoing structural, geophysical, geochemical and geological studies, further drilling will be drilled on the surface, understand the priority areas in the trend Curraghinalt Aim better and can.

Step-out drilling at Curraghinalt

The step-out drilling has the potential resources to cloak 260 Meters along strike in the vein T17, in some areas by more than 200 Meters down-dip from 106-16, 780 Meters along strike and 200 Meters up-dip parts of the vein in sheep dip and up to 240 Meters down dip in the vein extends Bend. In addition, bounded to the south of the known mineralization, several new veins.


This bore examined the area between Attagh Burn and the central portion of the resource. This hole is the second (steeper) by a pair of shear bores and was drilled from the same starting point such as 11-CT-95. The hole intersected, as expected, the vein No.. 1 the vein and advanced to Bend 240 Meters down dip and 70 Meters along strike and the vein at T17 260 Meters along strike compared to the last resource.


This hole tested the extension of the mineralization, in hole 11-CT-99 was deferred, up dip (480 m) on 400 Meters along strike east of the resource. It was intersected multiple mineralized zones. This drilling confirmed the continuity of mineralization up-dip along the easterly line of drilling at Curraghinalt.


This hole, the extension of the mineralization on the eastern edge of the resource to investigate down-dip, intersected the veins Crow (3,11 g / t Au over 1,9 Meters) and Bend (3,52 g / t Au over 1,66 Meters). They extended the mineralization at 160 Meters down-dip of 11-CT-98. They also intersected five new veins to the south of Crow, including 155,14 g / t Au over 0,2 Meters and 4,27 g / t Au over 2,8 Meters. The latest resource considered by the penetration of Crow, However, no new veins.


Bore 11-CT-104, the extension of the mineralization below the central portion of the resource examined downdip, intersected the veins Mullan (43,63 g / t Au over 0,16 Meters) and T17 (8,01 g / t Au over 1,46 Meters). These intersections are 200 Meters down dip than the previous drilling and recent resource.


This hole is a hole below the shear hole 11-CT-99 in the eastern section at Curraghinalt. It is believed, that the vein about Sheep Dip 780 Meters east of the current resource to a portion of 14,57 g / t Au over 0,43 Has intersected meters. A second vein was about 80 Meters south of the assumed location of the vein Crow 0,87 Meters with 9,14 g / t Au intersected.

Bore 11-CT-152

In this bore there is a step-out hole, the 100 Meters south of previous drilling and was drilled to investigate the correlated geophysical and geochemical anomalies. They intersected four veins, which demonstrates the continuation of the system to the south. Among the results 8,97 g / t Au over 0,64 Meters.

Infill drilling

It is expected, that the infill drilling will improve in the central part of the deposits, the level of confidence in the resource, without changing the grade and tonnage of essential.

The cores were cut in half, and the samples, the average of 0,1 to 0,25 Meters of ore and up to 0,5 Metern an Gestein files, were submitted to Omac in the Republic of Ireland. There are strict quality assurance- and quality control procedures implemented; this includes the use of short-, Standard- and duplicate samples. The gold content of the core samples was by 30 gram fire assay atomic absorption, conventional gravimetric finish and / or screening process analyzed.
