    TerraX releases results

    SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - TerraX Minerals Inc. (TSX.V:TXR) has released the assay results from nine holes representing 810.5 metres of drilling this past summer in the Yellowknife City Gold project.

    The company is reporting several high-grade intercepts near surface, as well as mineralized zones from five to 70 metres below surface.

    Highlights include: 2.85 m showing 33.6 grammes per tonne (g/t) gold, 3.07 m showing 13.85 g/t gold, and 5.10 m showing 7.01 g/t gold. Assays were conducted by ALS Chemex in Yellowknife and Vancouver. The Yellowknife City Gold project is 93.5 square kilometres of contiguous land just north of the city.

    The company already has core recovered from 74 drill holes made by Giant Mines Ltd. in 1985. Data from a further 117 holes was also recovered when TerraX purchased the property in 2013. Although no core sample was recovered for those 117 additional holes, the company hopes to be able to include drill log data from those holes in a future NI 43-101 resource thanks to drilling this past summer and winter.
