Barrick Gold Corporation Begins Field Work on
Horse Mountain Joint Venture
Miranda Gold Corp. ("Miranda") is please to announce that Barrick Gold Corporation ("Barrick") has begun
exploration field work on the Horse Mountain Joint Venture. Initial work will consist of a geophysical survey.
Geophysical information derived from the survey will be used in conjunction with existing geological, geochemical,
and drilling data to help define favorable structural trends.
Prior drilling at Horse Mountain encountered low-grade gold mineralization in strongly oxidized and altered
carbonate rocks presumed to be part of the lower-plate assemblage. Barrick's geophysical survey is designed to
delineate fault zones where high-grade gold mineralization might be concentrated and confined. Miranda is
pleased to have one of Nevada's major gold producers and experts on Carlin/Cortez-style gold mineralization as
its partner and as the operator of this joint venture.
Miranda Gold Corp. is a gold exploration company active in Nevada and whose emphasis is on generating
projects within the Battle Mountain-Eureka and Cortez Trends. Miranda performs its own grass roots
exploration and then employs a joint venture business model on its projects in order to maximize exposure to
discovery while minimizing exploration risk. Miranda has ongoing partnerships with Newcrest Resources Inc.,
Newmont Mining Company, Placer Dome U.S. Inc., Agnico-Eagle (USA) Limited, Barrick Gold Corporation
and Golden Aria Corp.
