EnGold Mines Ltd reported that new soil geochemical surveys at the Scorpio porphyry target and the Aurizon West gold target on the Company's 100% owned Lac La Hache Property have revealed multiple significant anomalies that warrant further exploration.At Aurizon West, 441 samples collected on a 25 x 25 metre grid measuring 1,000 metres north-south by 300 metres east-west, indicate a series of gold-only and gold + silver + copper soil anomalies along the entire survey. Gold values range from 4 to 1,400 parts per billion. More than 75% of the sites exceed the local background value of 10 ppb Au and 17 sites exceed standard deviation of 76 ppb.

Historical soil geochemical surveys using widely-spaced 250 metre line spacing, show strong gold patterns directly over the Aurizon Central and South Zones along the Northeast/Southwest 020 trend of the Aurizon hydrothermal breccia gold-copper-silver Deposit. The same surveys show a parallel but poorly defined gold trend located 700 metres northwest of Aurizon South, in an unexplored area. The success of recent, detailed soil geochemical surveys over the footwall of Aurizon South, leading to discovery of near-surface visible gold bearing quartz veins, prompted similar surveying over the western historical gold anomaly to provide improved resolution of potential gold targets.

"The new Aurizon West soil results are exciting, providing more than a dozen prospecting targets, many with multi-site anomalies larger than those obtained at Aurizon South" says EnGold's VP Exploration, Rob Shives. "The location of the new targets fits well within our geological exploration model and we look forward to positive results as soon as weather conditions permit follow-up next spring".
