(PresseBox) - Mawson Gold Limited (?Mawson? or the ?Company?) (TSX:MAW) (Frankfurt:MXR) (PINKSHEETS: MWSNF - ) is pleased to announce assay results from two further drill holes from the 100%-owned Sunday Creek project. Drilling is part of an ongoing 5 kilometre program in the Victorian Goldfields of Australia. The project is an epizonal-style gold prospect located 56 kilometres north of Melbourne and contained with 19,365 hectares of both granted and applied for exploration tenements.


Diamond drillhole MDDSC002 intersectede MDDSC001 (15.2 metres (at) 3.7 g/t gold from surface including) and unmined extensions of the historic Apollo mine area below the oxide zone;

Diamond drillhole MDDSC003, located 330 metres WNW of MDDSC002, intersected

This is the second set of diamond drilling results that confirm the tenor of gold mineralization found within earlier reverse-circulation drill results, using orientated HQ-sized core;

Historic gold mining between 1880-1920 at Sunday Creek occurred over a greater than 11-kilometre trend. Drilling during 1990-2000s focussed on shallow, previously mined surface workings, covering an area of 100

Three initial drill holes (MDDSC001-003) have been completed at theSunday Creekgold project in the Victorian Goldfields for 345 metres of drilling. Given the intensity, style and grade of mineralization observed in this drilling, a drill-rig has returned to Sunday Creek to continue to define the gold mineralized system to build volume and scale.

Mr. Hudson, Chairman and CEO, states, "These results continue our strong start in Victoria with further good gold grades drilled over substantial widths immediately below and along strike from our drilling announced in early October at the 100%-owned epizonal Sunday Creek gold project. A drill rig has now been mobilized back to Sunday Creek to continue to drill extensions to mineralization. Meanwhile one rig also continues to drill 7 days a week at the Redcastle project.?

Three initial drill holes (MDDSC001-003) totaling 345 metres were completed at theSunday Creekm along its strike and to depth by undertaking 3D IP, gravity and ground magnetics.

Mineralization at Sunday Creek is hosted in late-Silurian to early-Devonian-aged shales and siltstones containing a series of volcanic dykes of felsic-intermediate composition. Gold is concentrated in late-aged brittle structures and dominated by two styles: a fracture hosted quartz-stibnite

Technical and Environmental Background

The true thickness of the mineralized interval is interpreted to be approximately 70% of the sampled thickness. Gold-only intersections are reported with a lower-cut of 0.3

A drill rig from drilling contractor Starwest Pty Ltd was used in the drill program. Core diameter is HQ (63.5 mm) and oriented with excellent core recoveries averaging close to 100% in both oxidized and fresh rock. After photographing and logging in Mawson?s core logging facilities in Nagambie, core intervals were diamond sawn in half by Mawson personnel. Half core is retained for verification and reference purposes. Analytical samples are transported to On Site Laboratory Services? Bendigo facility which operates under both an ISO 9001 and NATA quality systems. Samples were prepared and analyzed for gold using the fire assay technique (25 gram charge), followed by measuring the gold in solution with flame AAS equipment. Samples for multi-element analysis aqua regia digest and ICP-MS methods. The QA/QC program of Mawson consists of the systematic insertion of certified standards of known gold content, duplicate samples by quartering the core, and blanks within interpreted mineralized rock. In addition, On Site inserts blanks and standards into the analytical process.
