Knight Inlet samples return 14 m of 0.155% WO3 for Dentonia

Dentonia Announces Channel Sampling Results from Tungsten Discovery on Knight Inlet Area Claims
August 6, 2009

Dentonia Resources Ltd. ("the Company") is pleased to announce channel sampling assay results from the quartz-garnet tungsten discovery skarn ("the Discovery Skarn") on the Knight Inlet Area Claims (see News Releases dated June 22 and July 14, 2009).  The Discovery Skarn is located 11kms inland from Fraser Bay at the head of Loughborough Inlet.

Elemental Tungsten ("W") is sold on the world market as tungsten concentrate ("WO3"); accordingly W assay values were converted to WO3 by the formula WO3 = 1.2616 x W.

Channel sampling highlights are:

  • 9m (0-9m) averaging 0.189% (1.9kg/t) WO3 and 0.25% copper; and
  • 14m (15-29m) averaging 0.155% (1.6kg/t) WO3 and 0.06% copper, including 4m (15-19m) of 0.36% (3.6kg/t) WO3.

Twenty-nine channel samples at 1m intervals along the Discovery Skarn were collected under the supervision and control of James A. Turner, P.Geo.  A horizontal channel was created with a rock saw at a consistent height across the Discovery Skarn (see photo on Dentonia's website at  The samples were assayed by International Plasma Labs Ltd. of Richmond, BC.  Copper was analyzed by the Fusion Induced Plasma Mult-acid (ICPM) Method and tungsten by the Fusion ICP Method.               See Full release
