2011 News

March 31st. 2011 (Vancouver, BC) - Freegold Ventures Limited (TSX: FVL, Frankfurt: FR4N)(“Freegold”) is pleased to report the results of a NI43-101 compliant Mineral Resource estimate recently completed on the Golden Summit Project located in near Fairbanks, Alaska. The resource estimate was completed by Giroux Consultants Ltd. of Vancouver, BC. Canada. Using 0.3 g/t Au as a possible cut-off for open pit extraction an indicated and inferred resource was calculated.

  • Total indicated resource is 7,790,000 mt @ 0.695 gpt for a total of 174,000 contained gold ounces.

  • Total inferred resource is 27,010,000 mt @ 0.606 gpt for a total of 526,000 contained gold ounces.

49 drill holes were drilled in the mineralized Dolphin Stock totaling 5,966 m. The Dolphin stock is a multi-phase intrusive. The stock has been traced on surface by soil sampling and RC drill data and represents an area of 1,200 by 2,000 ft. (366 x 610 m). Gold assays were capped at 42 g/t Au. A block model containing blocks 10 x 10 x 5 m in dimension was superimposed over the Dolphin mineralized solid with the percentage of each block below surface topography and within the solid recorded. A combination of Ordinary Kriging and Indicator Kriging was used to interpolate gold values into blocks.
