Liberty Mines (LBE:TSX)


Intersects 2.51% Ni Over 10.4m at the Hart Project

diamond drilling at the Hart Nickel Project continues to return high grade Nickel (“Ni”) intersections in the sulphide pool described in earlier releases.

H-08-66 intersected 2.51% Ni over 10.4 metres of core, close to the central portion of the lower zone.

This intersection confirms the grade and width of the orebody within the previously stated strike length of 210m, having intersected 50 east and up dip of hole H-07-63 which returned a high grade zone of 2.05% Ni over 9.8m.

Other boreholes in the vicinity intersected

2.15% Ni over 14.55 (H-07-35),

1.19% Ni over 25.55m (H-07-45),

1.15% Ni over 27.4m (H-07-30), and

1.37% Ni over 14.2m (H-07-48).

Collectively, these boreholes have outlined the main sulphide pool discovered last year which remains open to the east, west and at depth.

“Hart continues to deliver,” said William Randall, Liberty‘s Vice President of Exploration. “This latest drill hole confirms the economic potential of the orebody, returning concentrations high enough to compensate for weaker nickel commodity prices, should they occur. And, as stated previously, the large sulphide pool is wide open to the east, west and at depth.” he added.

About Liberty Mines Inc.

A detailed account of this new discovery will be press released shortly.

Four holes have intersected massive to semi-massive sulphide mineralization. The rock units encountered at Eagle Two consist of strongly altered peridotite hosting a multi-phased deformation zone containing veins of sulphides ranging from a few centimeters wide to over 3 meters wide.

African Gold Group, Inc. (AGG:TSXV)


Discovered 2.7 Kilogram Gold Nugget at Koboda, Mali

= 5.9 pounds x $936/oz = $88,360

local artisanal miners have discovered a 2.7 kilogram gold nugget in the north-west quadrant of the Kobada concession.

PR containis link to view the Kobada concession map and the location of the discovery of the gold nugget ( ).

A review of the map clearly illustrates that the discovery location is a considerable distance from the site of any work undertaken by AGG and speaks to the general prospective nature of the overall Kobada concession.

AGG geologists describe the gold nugget as being “local”, as witnessed by its irregular shape and the ease with which the nugget fell apart when lifted for weighing. These factors are indicative of the nugget not having travelled very far from its point of origin. It is hypothesized that the gold nugget was weathered out of a quartz-carbonate vein.

“Kobada shares a common characteristic of many established mining districts throughout the West African theater, that being the presence of extensive local artisanal mining. It is this feature or characteristic that has attracted the western miner(s) to the region, to test the depth extent of gold mineralization and in several instances, has resulted in world class mining projects – Syama, Sadiola and Siguri to name a few. The local population have been exploring and mining the Kobada region for hundreds of years and can still find new resources within sight of old workings”, states AGG Chairman, Ben Adoo, C. Eng.

African Gold Group, Inc., based in Toronto, Canada, is engaged in the identification, acquisition and exploration of prospective gold projects that are situated along significant gold trends within West Africa.
