STREAM SEDIMENT GEOCHEM RESULTS FROM TRAPEAN KRAHAM PROPERTY
• Stream sediment geochem results from Trapean Kraham Property
• Preliminary stream sediment exploration shows gold target on similar hornfels to Angkor’s
adjacent Kunmum prospect.
VANCOUVER, BC (January 19, 2012)
ANGKOR GOLD CORP. (TSXV: ANK) announced today that analytical results of stream sediment
geochemical survey samples have been received from 107 catchments
on the Trapean Kraham Property, Banlung Province, which is held under a
Memorandum of Understanding with the Ministry of Industry, Mines and Energy dated 26
The above map depicts the gold in stream sediments, superimposed on the geology
interpreted from satellite imagery based on reconnaissance geological field traverses.
The anomalous gold occurs in two contiguous catchments that drain off a hornfelsic unit related to
a similar unit of the Kunmum prospect in the northwestern corner of Banlung North tenement, which
lies to the immediate east of Trapean Kraham tenement. The area southeast of Kunmum prospect is
already slated for stream sediment sampling and scout mapping for this season, as it has not yet
been explored. This success in the Trapean Kraham survey adds optimism to this exercise.
The only other higher gold value in the survey occurs in the extreme south of the tenement at
690000E:1495000N. This coincides with a multi-element anomaly of lead-
zinc-silver-bismuth-antimony, a selection of which are depicted below.
The distribution of these elements seems related to a clearly visible fracture aligned
north-northeast, and coinciding again with the two gold anomalies mentioned above. This suggests
the entire fracture as a target for investigation.
A further, unrelated cluster of anomalies includes copper-nickel-chromium-cobalt, which is a
classical mafic-ultramafic associated assemblage, and the immediate reaction is that the value is
related to a mafic dyke. However, it remains a target for investigation.
The distribution of barium is interesting, as there is a cluster of 3 contiguous catchments with
strongly anomalous values in the southwest of the tenement which bears some further investigation.
The stream sediment samples were dried and sieved; the <80 mesh fraction was analysed by ALS-Chemex
for gold by Standard Fire Assay in Vientiane, Laos, and after
3-acid digestion for a suite of other elements by ICP-MS in Brisbane, Australia. No blanks or
standards were inserted by Angkor.
