11:29 AM EST - Eclipse Gold Mining Corporation : Has initiated a helicopter-supported geophysical survey to explore the scale of the mineralizing system at its Hercules gold project in Nevada's Walker Lane trend. Electromagnetic (resistivity and conductivity), magnetic, and radiometric data will be collected for the entire Hercules property, with approximately 2,200 line kilometers planned. Previous work indicated a potential correlation between resistivity and gold mineralization on the property. The survey is being conducted by Geotech Ltd of Aurora, ON. "Work to date by the Company has been systematically exploring the Hercules Gold Project," stated Michael Allen, President and CEO of Eclipse Gold, "We have now established that Hercules hosts a large scale, epithermal gold system whose value is only now beginning to be unlocked. Our next phase of work is to assess the full scale of the system and vector in on potentially higher-grade zones." Eclipse Gold Mining Corporation shares V.EGLD are trading up 5.26 percent at $0.80.
