Final Assays for Upper Montrose Zone on the Red Cliff Property Received

By Decade Resources

March 05, 2012

Vancouver, BC – Decade Resources Ltd. (“Decade” or the “Company”) reports it has received the assay results for the remaining 9 drill holes completed on the Upper Montrose zone at its Red Cliff project in Northwestern British Columbia. The Red Cliff is a gold/copper property consisting of 8 Crown granted mineral claims located 25 miles north of the town of Stewart, British Columbia. The 2011 field season has extended the gold bearing zone 500 metres along strike and 250 metres of depth. It remains open in all directions. The 2011 drilling has greatly aided in defining the strike and dip of the Upper Montrose zone as well as its configuration.

Areas tested by the 2011 drilling are found at the company’s website at Complete assay results will be shortly.

A total of 44 drill holes were completed to intersect below and southwest of DDH-MON-2009-1-6 and below the furthest southwest holes completed in the 2010 drilling. Results of the latest holes shows a continuation of high gold values to the west in a down dip direction as follows:

* hole lost in fault zone.

DDH-MON-2011-33 and 35 intersected a post mineral dyke which has replaced the mineralized zone. DDH-MON-2011-40 to 43 were lost in a fault zone beneath DDH-MON-2011-39 which had visible gold in the last 15 cm of the hole. DDH-MON-2011-44 hit the zone but intersected no significant gold values but did have anomalous base metal values indicative of the gold bearing zone. Modeling of the data is continuing and has been very positive to date. Using a 0.5 g/t gold cutoff the modeling has shown that the Upper Montrose zone is 20-25 metres wide (true thickness) and has a depth of at least 250 metres. With the information and the information obtained from the modeling, the company plans an aggressive 2012 exploration season which will include but not be limited to the following:

  • Drilling 100 to 150 holes during the coming field season.
  • Continued Modeling of the mineralization utilizing all data received to date
  • Modeling of the geology to aid in locating future drill holes
  • Surveying all relevant drill hole collars.
  • Prepare a 43-101compliant resource estimate upon completion of the 2012 drilling.
  • Drill test beneath the Lower Montrose zone in which pyrite, chalcopyrite, galena and sphalerite mineralization occurs in quartz veins and stockworks over a 20 metre wide zone.. This zone has been developed along a short adit in a very steep part of the property. Initial sampling, conducted after discovery, above the portal area to one of the adits gave 198 g/tonne Au across 2.59 metres. During 1939-41 a total of 59 tonnes mined averaged 84.4 grams/tonne Au, 101 g/tonne Ag, 0.91% Cu, 3.5% Pb and 4.41 % Zn. In 1979 surface sampling gave 19.3 grams/tonne Au across 2.43 metres while 1987 surface sampling returned 7.93 grams/tonne Au across 3.81 metres over short sample intervals. The company reports that the above assay results have not been confirmed and should be used for reference purposes only.
  • Evaluate the area of a historical drill hole from the 1980’s, south of the present drilling on the south side of Lydden Creek which assayed 13.10 m of 3.08 g/t gold. The hole was located SW of the Waterpump zone exposed in Lydden Creek.
  • Determine if the Waterpump zone which assayed 12.0 g/t gold over 8.5 metres in a historical trench is a separate NE trending zone. The company reports that the above assay results have not been confirmed and should be used for reference purposes only. If the Waterpump zone is a separate NE- SW trending zone, the above historical drill hole assay may indicate an extension to the SW and would indicate a potential 3 separate gold bearing zones which would greatly add to the overall potential of the property.

The Company plans to GPS locate the zones and obtain structural measurements in order to develop the coming field program. It is expected that this work will start in the next several weeks.

All core is cut in half using a diamond saw with half sent to a laboratory and half placed back in the core box. All samples are assayed by Loring laboratories of Calgary, Alberta..
