Comstock Commences Drilling at VG Zone on QV Project
Vancouver, BC – September 7, 2012 – Comstock Metals Ltd. (TSX-V: CSL) (“Comstock” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that a diamond drilling program has commenced on the QV Project in the White Gold district, Yukon.
The drilling program is designed to test strong gold enrichment discovered in trenches at the VG Zone, including 3.31 g/t gold over 95m from trench QVTR12-06 and 3.77 g/t gold over 45m in QVTR12-15 (see Comstock news release dated September 4, 2012). The gold mineralization occurs within lode quartz-carbonate veins, stockworks, and breccias, as well as pyrite veinlets, fractures and disseminations within a north-east trending zone of strongly quartz-sercite-carbonate altered felsic schists, and granitic intrusives that has been defined over a minimum strike length of 390 m and is open to both the east and west.
In addition to drilling, additional trenching and soil sampling is continuing to more closely define the limits of this gold anomaly.
