BRIDGEWATER, NOVA SCOTIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 28, 2012) - Silver Spruce Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SSE) is pleased to update shareholders on results recently released by Crosshair Energy Corporation on the former Central Mineral Belt Joint Venture (CMBJV) properties on which Silver Spruce holds a 2% Net Smelter Return (NSR).
Crosshair reported on August 22, 2012 that drilling on the Two Time deposit, on the CMB Northwest (NW) property, intersected mineralization at the expected depth over a significant interval (see results below), indicating the deposit is continuous to the south along strike and down dip. Drill hole CMB-12-49 is a 50m step out to the south from previous holes that were last drilled in 2011, lying approximately 50 m to the north of the north boundary of the Snegamook property, which is owned 100% by Silver Spruce.
Silver Spruce holds a 2% NSR on the CMBJV properties and the Two Time deposit, discovered by Silver Spruce in 2006/07. It hosts a NI 43-101 indicated resource of 2.33 million lbs (1.82 MT at 0.058% U3O8) and an additional inferred resource of 3.73 million lbs (3.16 MT grading 0.053% U3O8). The CMBNW property is contiguous with both the Snegamook and A7 properties owned 100% by Silver Spruce (see map on website for property positions). The Snegamook property hosts a number of uranium showings, including the Snegamook zone on strike to the south of the Two Time zone, as well as the Near Miss prospect. At the Snegamook zone, 17 drill holes intersected a 20 to 50 m wide section of uranium mineralization in the the same geological setting as the Two Time zone, over a strike length of 300 m and to a vertical depth of 200 m. The Anomaly 7 (A7) uranium property purchased from Virginia Energy Resources Inc. in August 2012 (news release dated August 7, 2012) hosts a number of significant uranium showings, including the Anomaly 7 (A7) and the Fishhawk Lake South (FHLS), with drill intersections of 0.13% U3O8 / 23.4 m, including 0.25% / 9.7 m on the A7 and 0.063% U3O8 / 27.9 m, including 0.18% / 4.5 m and 0.106% / 9.9 m in DDH FHLS-07-3 on the FHLS.
A claim map showing the property position and the various showings on the property and in the area is available on the Silver Spruce website at www.silverspruceresources.com.
This release has been approved by Peter M. Dimmell, P.Geo., President & CEO of Silver Spruce Resources Inc., who is a Qualified Person (QP) in NL and ON as defined in National Instrument 43-101.
