Vancouver, BC, October 26, 2010: Goldbank Mining Corporation (TSX.V-GLB) is pleased to announce it has entered into a preliminary option agreement to acquire two claims contiguous
with Goldbank’s Leota gold project. These new claims, named the “Hasenfuss” or “Rabbit Foot”
claims, are located at the headwaters of Hunker Creek, the second most prolific placer goldproducing
drainage in the historic Klondike region of the Yukon. Click here for Printable PDF
The Hasenfuss gold claims are significant because they overlie a gold-bearing quartz vein
which is projected to dip under Goldbank’s adjacent Leota gold claims. More importantly the
host rocks to this gold-bearing vein as well as the area underlying the adjoining Leota claims
have been clearly identified to consist of foliated and variably carbonate-sericite and locally
pyrite altered gabbro and diabase with intervals of variably talc-carbonate-altered ultramafic
rocks. This is significant as coarse, nuggety gold-quartz veins mined elsewhere in the North
American Cordillera are largely hosted by (e.g. Bralorne and Cassiar), or are found in immediate
association with (e.g. Barkerville) rocks of this type.
The two Hasenfuss Quartz Mining Claims have been optioned from two private individuals for a
total of $60,000 with the final $50,000 option payment due by June 30, 2011. The claims are
subject to a 2% net smelter returns royalty.
