Linux Gold Corp. Announces Dime Creek Exploration Program

Linux Gold Corp. (OTCBB: LNXGF) is pleased to announce a soil auger/lode exploration program is being planned for the Dime Creek gold/platinum property, located in Northern Alaska. An eight-day project is planned to test several placer pits. A phased reconnaissance exploration program is recommended in order to gather enough information to finance and initiate a placer resource definition program.

 

DIME CREEK SUMMARY

The Dime Creek area is a historic producer of gold and platinum located in the eastern portion of the Seward Peninsula, within the Koyuk Mining District of Alaska. Examination of U.S. Mint production records and other sources indicate that Dime Creek has produced and estimated 40,000 to 60,000 ounces of gold from 1915 to 1955 -- most of which was produced prior to 1952. According to U.S. Government mint records, 105 ounces of byproduct platinum has also been produced from the Koyuk district, mostly from Dime Creek.
