Edgewater Exploration begins drilling at Enchi gold project in Ghana

Edgewater Exploration (TSX-V: EDW)(OTCQX: EDWZF) said Wednesday that drilling activities have begun on the company's Enchi gold project in Ghana.
The company said two drills have been mobilized for the start of a planned program consisting of 12,000 m, consisting of both in-fill and step-out holes designed to confirm existing results, and extend mineralized zones.
 
The target for this phase of drilling are the three principal zones at Enchi: Boin, Nyamebekyere, and Sewum. According to the company, it is expected the drilling program will generate enough new information to support a NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate in the first half of 2011.
There has been previous drilling of more than 40,000 metres at the site, which was successful in outlining continuous mineralized zones over strike lengths of more than one kilometre with widths averaging 10 to 30 metres.

Red Back Mining, acquired by Kinross (TSX: K, NYSE: KGC), discovered 16 separate gold mineralized zones on the Enchi Gold project that have the characteristics of epigenetic mesothermal Ashanti-style quartz vein style gold deposits, one of the most important type of gold occurences in West Africa.

"Over the past 4 months Edgewater has methodically reviewed the historical data and been able to get a better understanding of the geology. We have now successfully mobilized drills in both Ghana and Spain (Corocesto Gold Project), and are looking forward to a significant amount of news flow in Q1 2011," said president and CEO George Salamis.
The 568 km2 Enchi Gold project located in southwest Ghana covers a 40 kilometre strike length of the Bibiani Shear Zone that hosts a number of major gold mines including Kinross Gold's Chirano Gold Mine and the Bibiani Gold Deposit.
