PJX Resources’ Identifies Large Gold Trend On Zinger Property
Toronto, Ontario –March 2, 2012 – PJX Resources Inc. (“PJX”) is pleased to announce results to date from the mapping, geochem and geophysics program on the Zinger Property.
Gold Geochem and Mapping
Bedrock grab samples have identified gold mineralization over an area 8 km long and 2 km wide on the property. Since 2008, approximately 1380 grab samples of bedrock have been collected and analyzed. Approximately 750 samples reported analyses above 20 ppb gold including:
- 86 samples ranging from (0.5g/t) to (1.0 g/t)
- 101 samples ranging from (1.0g/t) to (5.0 g/t)
- 37 samples were equal to or greater than (5.0g/t)
- The highest value reported is (39.6g/t) gold.
The results from the geochem and mapping program indicate that anomalous gold mineralization appears to occur along bedding planes with higher concentrations of gold in veins and zones perpendicular to or at oblique angles to bedding within quartzites.
Geophysics and Gold Mineralization
In November 2011 Geotech Ltd. completed a detailed 340 kilometre electromagnetic and magnetic airborne geophysical survey over the entire mineralized area on the Zinger Property.
The electro-magnetic data has identified a large resistive zone at depth that is coincident with and outlines the majority of the gold mineralization. This zone may be an intrusive or a large area of more intense silicification and alteration associated with gold mineralization. An Airborne Conductivity Map presenting this data can be seen at: http://pjxresources.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/120229-zinger-c4042-res-outline-au.jpg
In addition, the magnetic data has identified a 5 kilometre long magnetic trend that is coincident with some of the highest grade gold analyses in rock.

2012 Exploration Program
Based on these results, PJX’s 2012 summer exploration program will focus on the highest concentrations of gold and best geophysical features which will include further detailed mapping and a planned drilling program.
The road-accessible Zinger Property is located 24 km west of Cranbrook, British Columbia and covers 12,400 hectares over a 20 km strike length.
Company President and CEO, John Keating, comments, “PJX is very encouraged with the development of the Zinger target areas. This is the largest virtually untested gold trend that I have seen in my years of exploration. One explanation for why a gold deposit has not been found to date is because the deposit may not come to surface. The ability of airborne geophysics to explore at depth helps narrow our search and may be the key to unlocking the location of potential gold deposits.”
The Zinger target areas, combined with the large gold targets developing on the Dewdney Trail Property, increase the company’s potential for a discovery.
PJX has flown an airborne geophysical survey over the 14,600 hectare Eddy Property in the Cranbrook area. This large property has gold and copper potential. The data is being compiled and results from this work will be announced in the near future.
The foregoing geological disclosure has been reviewed by John Keating, P.Geo. (a qualified person for the purpose of National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects). Mr. Keating is the President, CEO and a Director of PJX.
