Continued Mineralization from Vikings Dolly Varden Drill Program

Viking Minerals Inc. (OCTBB: VKML.OB – News) reports further on its drill program on the Dolly Varden Claims, Elko County, Nevada.

Company President Charles Irizarry stated “After a physical review of the new drill core we can say with some certainty that our geological model is proving up nicely, we are finding mineralisation where it is supposed to be and the grades seem to be there as well. ”

Hole #3 was completed to a vertical depth of 725 feet and intersected mineralization and garnetiferrous metamorphism from about 500 feet to 660 feet with one particular area (approximately 619 feet to 654 feet) that had several massive sulphide zones. Visible chalcopyrite in several blebs were observed in siliceous “veins” both within this zone and throughout the mineralized and metamorphosed intersection.

Several rusty and other altered zones were noted further up the hole and in general the zones correlate well with the mineralized intersections in Drill Hole #1 except that the grade of metamorphism appears higher and the amount of sulphide mineralization more copious in this drill hole (approximately 200 feet down dip from Drill Hole #1).

Assay results from this hole are currently being analysed and will be released shortly.

Laurence Stephenson, P. Eng, a Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101, has approved the contents of this News Release. Some information contained in this press release may have been previously reported.


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.


Viking Minerals is engaged in the acquisition and development of near-term producing copper, gold and silver properties in the United States and Canada. Viking is focusing on developing its Dolly Varden properties in northeastern Nevada, adjacent to the Victoria Copper mine. The Large resource of copper in this area has been well documented and hosts two large operating mines – Battle Mountain and Robinson. With solid management, an experienced technical team, and a large copper-rich land position in mining-friendly Nevada, Viking Minerals is well positioned to be North America’s next great mining company.
