Dallas, Texas (July 18 , 2011) – StockGuru shines its Spotlight on Viking Minerals, Inc. (OTCBB: VKML) (www.vikingmineralsinc.com). Viking Management and Technical team have completed a comprehensive review of data collected from its Dolly Varden Gold and Copper property in Elko County Nevada. Early results warrant aggressive exploration and investment. The Company closed on July 15, 2011 at $0.24 trading in a fifty-two week range of $0.10 to $0.30 on volume of 81, 500 shares.
Company President Charles Irizarry commented “The general market for Gold and Copper keeps getting better and better, it only makes sense to ramp up both exploration on the Dolly Varden as well as further acquisitions in Elko County area with an emphasis on near term production of both Gold and Copper”. “Sample results have shown Copper values as high as 9.34% on our Dolly Varden property, as a comparison the neighbouring Robinson Mine averages about .5% copper.
The company looks forward to reporting Dolly Varden drill results over the next 4 weeks”.
The Dolly Varden area is recognized as a classic eastern Great Basin district with base and precious metals associated with upper Paleozoic sediments intruded by Cretaceous auriferous magmas, which is a similar geological setting to the Battle Mountain Fortitude skarn gold type deposit in east central Nevada.
A review of the 59 grab rock samples taken outlined several anomalous molybdenum analyses (100 ppm range with one associated with the high grade silver sample of 1305 ppm Mo) and anomalous values in uranium (3 samples had 190, 160 and 130 ppm U) all associated with the high grade copper and zinc grab samples (up to 9.34% copper and up to 20.2% zinc). The association of minerals requires further investigation but suggests that the source of the mineralization is quite metaliferrous.
Specifically the grab samples with 1145 ppm silver (33.57 ounces per tonne) and 347ppm silver (10.18 ounces per tonne), and 2.67% copper; 20.6% lead; 1.49% zinc and 0.154 ppm gold and 9.34% copper; 1.95% lead; 2.21% zinc and 0.116 ppm gold, respectively. These results are located on the northern end of the IP zone, which will be targeted.
Several mineralized outcrops of copper rich mineralization have also been found where the IP zone comes to surface, towards the south end of the IP anomaly. Three grab samples were reported from that area – 2.02 %, copper and 3.9 ppm silver; 0.81% copper 190 ppm Molybdenum and 16.7 ppm silver & 3.65% copper 190 ppm uranium and 1.1 ppm silver.
A drill site testing a resistivity high area approximately 2,000 feet east of the main IP zone also reports alteration and copper mineralization. Results here included two grab samples of 5.7 & 3.4 ppm silver; 1.32% & 0.535% copper; 129 and 690 ppm molybdenum and 0.193 ppm and 0.134 ppm gold, respectively. The geological mapping has identified a Quartz Feldspar Porphyry (QFP) intrusive associated with the chargeability anomaly and the rock geochemistry anomaly. QFP’s are associated with the skarn and porphyry copper deposits of the Nevada basin area.
There are 298 mines in Elko County, Nevada, located between Reno and Salt Lake City and is a prolific copper mining area. Two of the most noteworthy mines include the Robinson Mine which is an open pit copper and gold mine that has operated continuously since 2005 producing averagely 121 to 126 million pounds per year of copper. And the Bingham Canyon Mine, which is the world’s largest open pit mine and has produced more copper than any other mine in history – approximately 14.5 million tons.
