SECOND HIGH-GRADE ZONE AT NORTHUMBERLAND RETURNS 7.10 G/T GOLD OVER
Fronteer Gold (FRG – TSX/NYSE Amex) announces today that drilling has returned some of the highest grade
gold intervals ever intersected at its 100% owned Northumberland project in Nevada.
Drill hole FNU035, the first hole of the 2010 program, returned two separate high-grade intervals as follows,
starting at a depth of approximately 225 metres:
( Composites for broad intervals are created at 3.0 g/t gold cut off, with “including” intervals
created at 10 g/t cutoff. Several values below the 3.0 g/t cutoff may be included as part of the
Hole FNU035 is located 25 metres southwest of an historic high-grade hole (NN-5), and helps underpin the
shape of a second growing high-grade domain at Northumberland.
“Fronteer Gold is very encouraged by these results as it builds our confidence in the geometry of high-grade
domains in parts of the deposit that have had relatively limited drilling,” says Fronteer Gold President and CEO
Northumberland’s current $750,000 drill program, which commenced in June, consists of a minimum of nine core
holes totaling 2,500 metres focused on testing multiple high-grade targets. Assays from additional holes are
Northumberland is a Carlin-style deposit that has significant potential for high-grade mineralization. In particular,
the western half of the deposit, despite several high-grade intersections, has not seen significant exploration
Fronteer Gold is preparing a Request For Proposal to be distributed to select mining contractors for the
construction of a 280-metre long decline to access high-grade mineralization within the deposit. Construction is
scheduled to begin in Q3-2010 with completion targeted for Q1-2011. The decline will provide the most cost-
effective platform for evaluating controls on high-grade mineralization, as well as conducting underground
exploration/definition drilling and bulk sampling.
