Barrian Mining Corp announced that it has staked an additional 40 contiguous mineral claims at its early stage Troy Canyon gold and silver project located in Nye County, Nevada approximately 230 km north of Las Vegas. Pursuant to the option agreement with Brocade Metals Corp., the new staking completed by Barrian brings the size of the Troy Canyon Project to 59 contiguous mineral claims totaling 493.30 hectares. The new staking was designed to cover recently identified gold in soil geochemical anomalies completed by a previous operator, which were never publicly released.

The historical soil geochemical survey covering the Troy Canyon Project and newly staked claims were completed during 2007. In total, 791 soil samples were collected along 120 metre (m) spaced north-south oriented gridlines at 60 m intervals (Figure 1). Of the 791 soils, a total of 41 samples returned greater than 20 parts-per-billion gold (ppb Au), greater than the 95th percentile, and up to 2.02 grams-per-tonne (g/t) Au in soil; in addition to greater than 0.25 g/t silver (Ag) and up to 36.6 g/t Ag in soil.

The results define a prominent greater than 50 ppb Au in soil anomaly extending a distance of 650 m southwest from the historical Locke Gold Mine portal. A 1.2 km north-south trending greater than 10 ppb Au in soil anomaly occurs that is coincident with the location of numerous historical adits and exploration pits. The gold and silver geochemical anomalies in the vicinity of the Locke Gold Mine and within the western Troy Canyon Project claims occurs within the same geologic environment along the contact between Cambrian limestone and shale rocks and Tertiary (23 Ma) Troy pluton. The claims effectively adds 2.4 km of additional strike length, up from 1.7 km, for a total of 4.2 km of gold prospective Cambrian limestone-Troy pluton contact strike length within the current Troy Canyon Project claims.
