November 30, 2006 - ATAC Resources Ltd. (TSX-V:ATC) is pleased to announce results from 5 of 26 diamond drill holes that Northern Freegold Resources Ltd. recently completed within the Nucleus Zone on the Golden Revenue Property, which is owned by ATAC.
In February 2006, Northern Freegold entered into an option agreement with ATAC that allows it to earn a 50% interest in the Golden Revenue, Nitro and Sey properties. Northern Freegold has added these three properties to a newly consolidated land package known as the Freegold Mountain Project.
- Widespread ore-grade mineralization intersected in drillholes including:
- 19.81 m of 1.74 g/t Au
- 27.10 m of 1.02 g/t Au
- Visible gold noted in drillcores
- Nucleus zone mineralization extended an additional 90 m in depth
Hole numbering in the 2006 drill program started at GRD06-15. Results reported include holes GRD06-15 to 17 and GRD06-23 to 24. Analyses from all other holes are pending.
Nucleus Zone (Partial Results)
Drill results suggest continuity of gold mineralization between holes GRD06-15, GRD06-16 and GRD06-17.
Step out holes GRD06-23 and GRD06-24 extended mineralization to the west.
Single mineralized intervals of up to 1.7 g/t are not included in the tables above. Drill hole location map and drill tables can be found at Northern Freegold’s website - www.northernfreegold.com.
Quality Control and Assurance
All core samples from diamond drilling are split and sent to Eco Tech Laboratory in Kamloops. Blanks, commercial standards and duplicate core samples are included in each batch. Gold is analysed on 30 gram pulps by fire assay followed by aqua regia digestion and Atomic Absorption Spectrometry (AAS). Gold values greater than 1000 ppb are reanalysed by gravimetric fire assay. Check assays are carried out by metallic screen fire assay. Other elements are analysed by 28 element ICP analysis after aqua regia digestion. Additional check analyses and assays will be carried out by ALS Chemex in North Vancouver.
The program is under the direct supervision of Mr. Ron Robertson, P. Geol., hereby identified as the “Qualified Person” under the NI 43-101 requirements.
