FRONTEER GOLD INTERSECTS 33 METRES OF 5.96 G/T GOLD
AND BEGINS DECLINE WORK AT NORTHUMBERLAND
Fronteer Gold (FRG – TSX/NYSE Amex) announces today that core drilling continues to define a second high-
grade, gold-silver zone and that site preparation for the decline portal has commenced at its wholly owned
Northumberland project in Nevada.
Holes NUG05 and FNU38 are located 75 metres north and 105 metres south-west, respectively, of previously
reported FNU035 (see August 3, 2010, press release). Both new holes returned high-grade gold and silver
values. Mineralization now extends for an average strike length of 260 metres within the currently outlined second
The 2010 drill program is focused on the western half of the shallow portion of the deposit where previous wide-
spaced drilling and new geologic modeling indicate high-grade gold and silver occurring over thick intervals.
Collectively, these two new holes expand an important target area and enhance the understanding of the
distribution of high-grade mineralization throughout the deposit.
Drill highlights from the two new holes, starting at a depth of approximately 220 metres, include:
Assays from additional holes testing this high-grade target area are pending.
Site preparation has begun for a 280-metre long decline to access high-grade mineralization within the deposit,
with completion targeted for Q1-2011. The decline will:
“In addition to Northumberland’s open-pit potential, targeting a high-grade underground operation with off-site
processing is an option that may offer reduced capital requirements and provide supplemental mill feed to existing
facilities,” says Troy Fierro, Fronteer Gold Chief Operating Officer.
