On a further note, Caldera would also like to announce that the first phase of the summer program on the Marjan Gold project has been completed and samples will be shipped for analysis before the end of the month to the fully certified and accredited UK based Alex Stewart Geochemical Analytical LLC, located in Moscow, Russia. Lab results will be announced as soon as they are available and are expected in early August.
The second phase of the summer work program will include the completion of an electromagnetic survey of the project to outline the extensions of the mineralized system, in preparation of a drilling program to commence by the end of the summer.
The Marjan Gold-Silver project has two distinct zones, referred to as the Northern Zone and the Central Zone. The Northern Zone was also explored between 1991 and 1992 by the Sisian Geological Exploration Group, Yerevan, Armenia.
The Central Zone of the Marjan Project was extensively explored between 1964 and 1989, and has Soviet-era GKZ standard resources as outlined below:
|Historical Resources||tonnes||Gold||Silver||Gold oz||Silver oz|
|C1 and C2 resources||4,772,757||2.64 g/t||92.67 g/t||405,147||14,211,588|
|P1 resources||3,211,843||2.35 g/t||93.42 g/t||242,696||9,647,922|
The resource estimate was published by Poghosyan N. F. in a 1995 report titled Marjan Gold-Silver-Polymetallic Property, State Committee for Reserves of Armenia, Sisian Geological Exploration Group, Yerevan, Armenia. Blocks of all categories are defined using a dry density of 2. 87 g/cm3, a minimum thickness of 0.4 metres, and a cut-off of 1.2 g/t of Gold.
In our recent review of historical resources on the Northern Zone, we have confirmed a historical Soviet-era GKZ standard resource, calculated by State Committee for Reserves of Armenia, Sisian Geological Exploration Group, Yerevan, as follows:
Marjan Northern Zone Only
|tonnes||Gold||Silver||Gold oz||Silver oz|
|P1 resources||5.77M||2.18 g/t||148.46 g/t||404,456||27,543,865|
The total C1 and C2 historical resources of the Marjan project contains 405,147 oz of Gold and 14M oz of Silver. The total P1 historical resource of the Marjan project contains 647,152 oz of Gold and 37M oz of Silver.
According to the Committee for Mineral Reserves International Reporting Standards (CRIRSCO), "C1″ and "C2″ classifications are equivalent to "indicated" and "inferred" resources (http://www.crirsco.com/guidelines_consultation_draft20100312.pdf).
Resources identified as P1 and P2 can be considered in the "Inferred" and "Mineralized Zone" categories respectively, as defined by the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM) in their document "Estimation of Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves Best Practices Guidelines".
The Marjan Gold-Silver Project was reviewed by Mr. Ricardo Valls, P.Geo., independent geologist for Caldera during his trip to Armenia in December 2009 and follow-up trip in April 2010. Mr. Valls, P.Geo. visited Global Gold's core-shack and staff, as well as both the Central and Northern Zones of the Marjan Gold-Silver Project.
The Corporation's main business is the acquisition, exploration and development of gold projects in South-eastern Europe and Armenia. Caldera is currently developing the Marjan Gold-Silver Project in southern Armenia.
