Freegold Acquires Prospective Lands at Golden Summit

http://www.freegoldventures.com/i/pdf/032514FVL.pdf
March 25th 2014 - (Vancouver, BC) -- Freegold Ventures Limited (TSX: FVL, Frankfurt: FR4N) ("Freegold") is pleased to announce the acquisition of 10 new State of Alaska mining claims covering approximately 1,440 acres of ground at its Coffee Dome prospect on its Golden Summit Project located near Fairbanks, Alaska. Like the greater Golden Summit project, the Coffee Dome prospect is road accessible, close to industrial strength power and an experienced labour force in nearby Fairbanks (100,000 people), representing an excellent low risk exploration target for Freegold.

Over the past several years Freegold has successfully delineated a sizeable resource at the Dolphin/Cleary Area on the western end of it's Golden Summit project and has been systematically evaluating this significant prospect, now at the Preliminary Economic Assessment stage. Golden Summit represents an excellent development target for Freegold, with a rich placer production history of over 6.75 million ounces recovered from the streams that drain the project area and 80 documented historical gold occurrences throughout it's 17 km strike extent. The project hosts the district's largest high grade historic underground producers such as the Cleary Hill Mine which produced 281,000 ounces grading 44.5 g/t (1.3 oz/t), the American Eagle which produced 60,000 -ounces grading 44.5 g/t (1.3 oz/t) and the Hi Yu Mine which produced 110,000 ounces grading 54.8 g/t (1.6 oz/t). Currently, the Fairbanks district is also home to Alaska's largest gold producer, Kinross Gold's operating Fort Knox mine which is located 7 km to the south of Golden Summit project. Limited exploration of this highly prospective district has been completed and Freegold's exploration efforts are aimed at developing this extensive district.

Historic work in the Coffee Dome area dates back to 1911 when one ton of material mined from the Charles prospect averaged $25 per ton (41 g/t ) in free milling gold. Later sampling returned values ranging from 1.95 to 43.5 g/t gold. Surface samples collected by the U.S. Geological Survey in 1969 returned gold values ranging from 1.27 to 150 g/t gold. Trenching and rock sampling conducted by Freegold in 1998 indicated that both upper and lower plate lithologies were encountered in trenches and higher gold values are more common in rocks containing abundant iron oxide and manganese oxide. Limited reverse circulation drilling by Freegold (6 holes, 557 m) intersected anomalous gold (100 to 400 ppb). No follow-up work has been conducted on this drilling. All of the holes drilled by Freegold encountered upper plate Chatanika Terrane rocks suggesting that the Coffee Dome area contained both upper and lower plate lithologies similar to those hosting mineralization in the Dolphin-Cleary Hill resource area and at now-mined out nearby True North deposit (Kinross Gold) and the current Gil deposit (Kinross Gold).

Prior to work completed by Freegold and completion of airborne magnetics and electromagnetics surveys by the State of Alaska Division of Geological and Geophysical Surveys (DGGS), the Coffee Dome prospect area was thought to be the eastern-most extent of the Fairbanks Mining District. However, Freegold's recently completed re-evaluation of this area suggests that the Coffee Dome area sits astride two district-scale northeast trending post-mineral faults. Lower plate rocks of the Fairbanks Schist form an up-thrown horst block between these two faults. Published geologic maps of the area indicate upper plate rocks of the Chatanika Terrane occur in a downthrown block to the northwest of the Coffee Dome horst block. Freegold's recent efforts at Coffee Dome, particularly reinterpretation of the airborne magnetics over the area, suggest that Chatanika Terrane rocks also are present in a down-thrown block to the southeast, an interpretation that differs with current geologic maps of the area. In addition, the presence of high grade gold values with anomalous arsenic, antimony, bismuth and tellurium suggest the potential for an intrusion related gold system. Although no intrusives are mapped at Coffee Dome, such an intrusive could be masked by extensive surficial deposits or be shallowly emplaced and blind at surface.

The Qualified Person who has reviewed the technical disclosure contained in this release is Curtis J. Freeman, M.Sc., P.Geo., who is the primary geological consultant for the project.

I used to own some FGOVF and sold several years ago. They used to control some property in Idaho I believe.

Some of the estimates sounds good in the propert were in sunny California.

Do you honestly think this has a chance, considering the infrastructure required, weather etc. ??

Would be interested in your thoughts, I look at FGOVF every now and then to check progress, looks like there has been some.

Freegold Announces 43-101 Resource Estimate for Golden Summit Project, Alaska
Ocotober 31,2012 (Vancouver, B.C.) - Freegold Ventures Limited (TSX: FVL)("Freegold") is pleased to report the results of a NI 43-101 compliant Mineral Resource estimate recently completed on the Golden Summit Project located near Fairbanks, Alaska. The resource estimate was completed by Giroux Consultants Ltd. of Vancouver, BC, Canada. The indicated and inferred resource using a 0.3 and 0.35 gram/tonne (g/t) cut-off is:

The mineralized Dolphin Solid has increased in volume by 254 % over the one used in the 2011 Estimate (Adams, Giroux, 2012). It has been deepened and extended to the north east to include the Cleary Hill area. This update of the 43-101 resource reported in January 2012 (Adams and Giroux, 2012) was based on an additional 74 drill holes completed in 2012 and an extension of the mineralized zone to the north and east. As a result the number of holes within the mineralized solid increased from the 77 (11,802m) used in the 2011 estimate, to 177 (35,829m) for this update.

The resource was calculated using a block model with blocks measuring 10 by 10 by 5 metres in size that were populated using a combination of ordinary kriging and indicator kriging; blocks within the Dolphin mineralized solid were summed to arrive at the total tonnage and average grade. In the following table, a 0.30 g/t and 0.35 g/t are highlighted as possible open pit cut offs. No economic parameters were utilized in determining the cut offs.

Each unit consisted of one common share (a "Share") and one common share purchase warrant (a 'Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder to acquire an additional Share at a price of $0.55 per share until December 15, 2011 and thereafter at a price of $0.65 per share until December 15, 2012. Freegold received shareholder approval of the issuance of the Warrants and the common shares underlying the Warrants by obtaining written consent of a majority of disinterested shareholders as required by the policies of the TSX.

Under the private placement, current Insiders purchased 113,043 Units which, assuming exercise of the Warrants, would result in 226,086 shares being issued to such Insiders, representing 0.9% of the then outstanding shares of the Company. A cash finder's fee of 10% was paid on a portion of the placement to arm's length finders. All securities issued bear resale restrictions until April 23, 2011.

The Company has also accepted the resignation of Mr. Mark Feeney from its Board of Directors. The Company wishes to thank Mr. Feeney for his contributions and wishes him the best in his future endeavours.

Freegold has also discovered new high-grade veins in surface
trenching at its Golden Summit project outside Fairbanks,
Alaska.
The Golden Summit property has historically produced over 7 million
ounces of gold, and is less than 5 miles from one of US large

About Freegold Ventures Limited

Freegold Ventures Limited is a North American exploration and development company with a management team experienced in mine development and production that has a proven track-record in transitioning exploration companies into gold producers. The Company is currently exploring advanced-stage gold projects in Idaho and Alaska. Freegold holds a 100% lease interest in the Almaden gold project in Idaho. This large tonnage epithermal gold deposit was the subject of a feasibility study in 1997 calling for the development of a 95,000 oz/year open pit, heap leach mine. Freegold has finalized a 54,700-foot drilling program which has successfully identified numerous extensions to the gold mineralization, along with newly identified open-ended areas of molybdenum mineralization. The Company is in the process of generating a new 43-101 resource which will be followed with the commencement of new economic evaluations. Freegold's 40,100-foot drill program in 2007 continued to discover new high-grade veins and bulk tonnage shear zones on its 93% controlled Golden Summit project outside Fairbanks, Alaska. Historically over 6.75 million ounces have been recovered from streams that drain the Golden Summit project area and an additional 500,000 ounces of lode gold were recovered from past producing mines on the Golden Summit project which is situated less than 5 miles to the north of the +7 million ounce Fort Knox Mine. Further evaluation and expansion of the mineralization is currently being undertaken with a combination of closely spaced shallow drilling, deeper, systematic core drilling and on-going bulk sampling program using an on-site gravity-based concentration plant. Drilling in 2008 is also being conducted on the company's 100% controlled Rob property, where the Company has intersected high-grade gold in near surface quartz veins similar in appearance and grade to those being mined at the nearby 5.6 million ounce Pogo. Work programs are also planned on the Vinasale property, where the Company has entered into an exploration agreement with option to lease which contains the previously identified Vinasale gold deposit.

Freegold Reports Positive Results from Initial Bulk Sampling at Golden Summit
Tuesday June 17, 8:54 am ET


VANCOUVER, June 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Freegold Ventures Limited (TSX: ITF, OTCBB: FGOVF, Frankfurt: FR4) is pleased to provide an update on its bulk sampling activities at the Golden Summit project located outside Fairbanks, Alaska, and to report the first gold grades from the sampled material. The first samples tested during the initial processing in late September and October of 2007 had a weighted average grade of 2.7 g/tonne (0.08 oz/ton), with individual stockpiles from a variety of areas tested ranging from 0.6 g/tonne (0.02 oz/ton) to 7.0 g/tonne (0.21 oz/ton). A total of 23,500 tons of material are currently stockpiled and are awaiting testing and processing over the next four months, along with a further estimated 45,000 tons that will be collected and processed from the Beistline, Fence 1 and Tolovana areas.

As indicated in the June 13, 2008 release which provided an overview on the Company's bulk sample processing and gravity-based gold recovery activities, the primary purposes of the bulk-sampling program at Golden Summit are to determine the continuity and average grades of gold mineralization found within numerous gold-bearing shear zones over a +5,000 foot strike length discovered and delineated through sampling and mapping numerous trenches and drilling over 1,000 shallow RAB holes over the past two years.

Bulk sample extraction commenced in the fall of 2006, when approximately 10,000 tons of material was collected from nine different locations - four of which were related to the historically mined Cleary Hill vein and its newly discovered eastern extension (the Beistline structure) while the other five were from a number of veins and shear zones located immediately to the south and sub-parallel to the east-west workings of the Cleary Hill mine (the South Vein Swarm). Descriptions of these initial samples can be found in the November 30, 2006 news release, with sample locations shown in the March 29, 2007 release. This initial bulk-sampling and associated overburden stripping confirmed that the gold mineralization found in veins, shears and stockworks extends over a much broader area than previously recognized, with gold bleeding into the hanging and footwalls of the narrower high grade quartz veins that were selectively mined underground in the past.

Following the permitting, construction and installation of the Company's impact crusher and gravity-based processing plant (located approximately 2 miles from the Cleary Hill Mine), the first of the bulk sample stockpiles were crushed and sampled during a limited processing run in late September and October of last year before the winter shut-down. All of the vein and shear material extracted during bulk sampling was stockpiled separately according to sample location. Individual stockpiles were batched through the crushing circuit using a horizontal impact crusher in closed circuit with a vibrating 1/4" screen deck, and then weighed using the belt scale on the conveyor feeding the gravity processing plant. This material fed into the plant was then sampled every 15 minutes. The tonnages and average head grades of the individual sample piles crushed and analyzed in 2007 are as follows:


-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sampled Material Tons Sampled Gold Grade (g/tonne) Gold Grade (oz/ton)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
D-8 409 5.7 0.17
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wackwitz Area 2 288 7.0 0.21
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Wackwitz Area 4 137 3.4 0.10
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

While the grades of these surface samples are positive in relation to the 0.61g/tonne grade of the reserves currently reported as remaining within the neighboring Fort Knox gold mine, it is important to note that the samples collected in 2006 were selective in nature. These samples were also collected prior to the drilling of the 1,000 shallow RAB holes over the past year and a half which has added significantly to the Company's understanding of the multiple 100 to 300 foot wide packages of veins and shear zones which strike through the Cleary Hill and Tolovana areas. With the re-commencement of processing for the 2008 season, four small piles remain to be sampled and processed over the coming weeks, along with 6,100 tons from the Beistline area, which represents the first larger-scale sampling that was undertaken on the project.

The 2006 Beistline bulk samples, which will be among the first material processed in 2008, were collected from an excavation 300 feet long by 30 feet deep and 30 feet wide. Approximately 2,850 tons of mineralized material was collected from the vein system. Another 3,250 tons of mineralized material was collected from the "bleed" material that splays into the hanging wall of the vein. Channel sampling was conducted at the surface prior to excavation, with vertical channel samples taken from the pit walls after excavation. Surface samples of the 4" to 18" wide vein material averaged 39.5 g/tonne (1.15 oz/ton) along the 185 foot strike length tested, while samples 5 to 10 feet into the hanging wall returned assays of 25.3, 34.3, 31.1, 26.1 and 46.3 g/tonne (0.74 to 1.35 oz/ton). Vertical channel samples ranging from 2 to 5 feet in length were taken every 10 to 20 feet along the walls of the initial pit and ranged from a low of 0.24 g/tonne (0.007 oz/ton) over 2 feet, to highs of 65.3 g/tonne (1.9 oz/ton) and 616.7 g/tonne (18.0 oz/ton) over 3-foot intervals.

The bulk sampling that was conducted in 2007 focused on two areas in order to provide much larger samples that are more representative of the bulk tonnage mineralization found in the Cleary Hill area. The sampling in the Beistline area extended the previously tested area through a new cut approximately 550 feet long (oriented east-west) and 90 to 140 feet wide over an average depth of 10 feet. Following completion of this cut, the bulk sampling moved to the area where Fence 1 of the RAB drilling was conducted. Sampling here was conducted over a 750 foot long (oriented north-south) by 50 foot wide area. As the ground in this area slopes from south to north, 5 separate excavations were conducted in a step-like fashion, with the depth of each cut ranging from 1 to 2 feet on the north sides to 15 feet on south sides. Where the Cleary Hill vein was encountered, additional sampling was done on a 100 foot long by 130 foot wide area to a 10 foot depth to further test the bleed mineralization in this area.

As both the Cleary Hill and the Beistline areas were drilled with close spaced RAB holes prior to their excavation, the results of these samples will permit the first reconciliation of bulk sample grades with those predicted by the drilling. The orientation of the two excavations also tested the continuity of the gold mineralization along the strike of one of the shear zones in one instance (Beistline) and perpendicular to the strike, and running through multiple shear zones in the other (Fence 1).

A total of 23,250 tons of material is currently stockpiled for processing over the coming months. These are broken down as follows:


-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sample Location Tons Sampled Sample Location Ton Sampled
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
2007 Coarse Tails 3,500 Currey Shear 200
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Penrose Dump 150 Beistline Structure 2,850
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mixed clean-up 500 Beistline Bleed 3,250
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fence 1 100 2007 Beistline 5,500
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Alaska vein 200 2007 Fence 1 7,000
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

In addition to the above stockpiles, an additional 45,000 tons is expected to be sampled in 2008, bringing the total estimated amount of material to be processed over the next four months to approximately 70,000 tons. This new 45,000 tons will be extracted from a second and third cut in the Beistline area, by extending and deepening the prior Fence 1 sampling, and from the Tolovana area, where a new bulk sampling area will be opened up to test extensive shearing and stockwork veining encountered in the 2007 RAB drilling in this area.

True widths of the veins reported in this release are variable, as the orientation of the various mineralized structures encountered throughout the drilling and bulk sampling is variable. Alaska Assay Laboratories in Fairbanks, Alaska is being used to analyze the gold via fire assay analysis plus multi element ICP-AES and ICP-MS analysis using 4 acid digestion. All gravity process plant samples, whether from the feed, of from various locations within the plant or the tailings, are assayed for gold via met screen assay with gravimetric finish.

Freegold Recommences Processing of Bulk Samples with Enhanced Gravity Plant at Golden Summit
Friday June 13, 3:01 am ET
VANCOUVER, June 13 /CNW/ -

Freegold Ventures Limited -
(TSX: ITF, OTCBB: FGOVF, Frankfurt: FR4) is pleased to announce the resumption of its seasonal bulk sampling program at the Golden Summit project located outside Fairbanks, Alaska. Commencement of this first full processing season follows the recent purchase and installation of additional processing equipment to enhance the crushing and grinding capabilities of the Company's gravity-based gold recovery plant. The decision to expand the plant was made upon the completion of comprehensive metallurgical testing over the winter which showed that significantly higher gold recoveries can be expected with smaller-sized material processed through the plant. Recoveries ranging from 80 to 95% have been achieved on 17 bulk sample composite samples that have been reduced to a particle size in the laboratory that is reflective of the new crushing and grinding capabilities of the plant.
With composite head grades ranging from 1.9 g/t (0.055 oz/ton) to 44.6 g/t (1.3 oz/ton), the high gravity recoveries seen across all sample grades reconfirms the coarse nature of the gold seen in the previous test work and in the initial gravity concentration work.

The primary purposes of the bulk-sampling program at Golden Summit are to determine the continuity of gold mineralization found within numerous gold-bearing shear zones that were discovered and delineated through trenching and shallow RAB drilling over the past two years, and to generate cash flow from the on-site gravity concentration of the gold found in this material. Following the receipt of permits in May 2007, Freegold commenced construction of a portable gravity-based gold concentration plant capable of processing up to 1,200 tons of mineralized material per day. The plant was transported to Alaska last summer and following assembly, became operational in September 2007. Following approximately 4 weeks of increasing through-put up to its design capacity, the processing operations were halted in October with the on-set of freezing temperatures.

As the Company was unable to source a secondary crushing plant last year, the primary crushing circuit was modified to operate in a closed loop to try and achieve the required minimum crush size. Unfortunately, this configuration did not consistently generate the required feed size which in turn negatively impacted the gold recovery and processing rates. Gold recovered in concentrates during the initial processing period were utilized for subsequent test work to optimize re-grind and final concentration methods. Although initial recovery was below expectations given the insufficient crushing capability, the majority of the gold remains contained within the coarse tailings that were separated and stockpiled adjacent to the plant, and which will be the first material to be processed this season with the newly modified plant. Further details on the bulk sampling program, including an overview of the location, volume and grades of materials sampled to date, and an overview on the sampling locations and volumes estimated for 2008 will be provided in the Company's next release.

2008 Metallurgical Testing

During the winter season, Freegold conducted an expanded and systematic program to supplement the preliminary gravity recovery test-work undertaken by McClelland Laboratories and the Knelson Research and Technology Centre in 2007. Freegold's program involved testing composite samples from each of the different mineralized rock types collected in prior bulk sampling to determine how gravity-based gold recoveries vary by particle feed size. Composites ranging from 20 to 50 kilograms were generated from both bulk sample stockpiles as well as from bulk sample working faces in the various bulk sample test areas. The samples were crushed to minus 1/4", and then split for head analyses sieve analyses and metallurgical testing. A total of 17 composite samples were generated, with head grades ranging from 0.055 oz/ton (1.9 g/t) to 1.3 oz/ton (44.6 g/t) and averaging 0.27 oz/ton (9.1 g/t). The crushed material was subsequently ground to various size fractions using a laboratory scale ball mill, and the ground products were then run through a 4 inch Knelson concentrator. The calculated head grades and gold recoveries from these samples were determined in order to plot the gold recovery versus particle size for each of the samples. This test work has re-confirmed the coarse particle size of the gold being sampled at Golden Summit, with recoveries ranging from 80 to 95 percent using relatively coarse grinding (65 to 80 mesh). Additional cleaner gravity concentration tests were also completed, indicating that a number of the rock types will be capable of producing a direct smelt concentrate by sending the rougher concentrates through the regrind circuit and the 12-inch Knelson concentrator.

Equipment Purchases and Plant Modifications

Given the higher recoveries indicated by the smaller sized feed material, Freegold has purchased and installed additional crushing and grinding equipment over the past few months. Freegold's first purchase was a used 500 ton/day mill from a site located 15 miles from the Golden Summit project. Several pieces of equipment from this mill, including 4' X 4' and 4' X 8' ball mills, a 2' X 3' regrind mill, plus miscellaneous hydrocyclones, slurry pumps, motors, conveyors and tanks, have already been dismantled and moved from the plant site and reinstalled into Freegold's current gravity circuit. In addition, the purchase included a complete flotation plant (including conventional rougher, scavenger and cleaner flotation cells, a 15' thickener, a disk filter, several agitation tanks, and a complete motor control center). Although this additional equipment is not needed for the Golden Summit circuit, Freegold will continue to store these valuable assets.

In order to enhance its crushing capabilities, Freegold also purchased a 2007 Nordberg portable closed circuit cone crushing plant with an integral 6' X 20' triple deck screen and conveying system for incorporation into the crushing circuit as the secondary crusher. The crushed and screened product from the crushing circuit (primary impact crusher and secondary cone crusher) will be discharged to a radial stacker and subsequently be fed to the processing plant where it will pass through the primary 4' X 4' mill where it will be slurried and given a rough grind. The material passing 65 mesh (210 microns) will be sent to the Knelson concentrators with the oversize being sent to the secondary 4' x 8' mill for additional closed circuit grinding that is expected to reduce the material to a size of 80% passing 65 mesh. The ground feed will then be pumped through a series of rougher and scavenger Knelson concentrators for final gravity concentration.

Data from the ongoing test-work and the initial processing are being used to develop MetSim models for each mineralized rock type which will be used to determine optimal plant configurations. Because the ball mills and Knelson concentrators are skid mounted and modular, it is possible to change the plant arrangement in only a few hours to optimize plant configuration for various rock types. Freegold has also purchased and installed three portable diesel-fuelled generators that are capable of generating up to 1.4 MW to provide electrical power to the processing plant.

Loan Closing

Freegold is also pleased to report that it has successfully closed its US $1,791,000 convertible loan facility that was reported on May 20, 2008. This loan is collateralized against the bulk sampling process equipment and the privately held land adjacent to the Golden Summit property upon which the equipment sits, carries an interest rate of 4%, and is convertible at the option of the lenders into Freegold common shares at a conversion price of US $1.23/share.

About Freegold Ventures Limited

Freegold Ventures Limited is a North American exploration and development company with a management team experienced in mine development and production, and that has a proven track-record in transitioning exploration companies into gold producers. The Company is currently exploring advanced-stage gold projects in Idaho and Alaska. Freegold holds a 100% lease interest in the Almaden gold project in Idaho. This large tonnage epithermal gold deposit was the subject of a feasibility study in 1997 calling for the development of a 95,000 oz/year open pit, heap leach mine. Freegold has recently finalized a 54,700-foot drilling program which has successful identified numerous extensions to the gold mineralization, along with newly identified open-ended areas of molybdenum mineralization. The Company is in the process of generating a new 43-101 resource which will be followed with the commencement of new economic evaluations. Freegold's 40,100-foot drill program in 2007 continued to discovery new high-grade veins and bulk tonnage shear zones on its 93% controlled Golden Summit project outside Fairbanks, Alaska. Over 7 million ounces of gold has historically been recovered from Golden Summit which is situated less than 5 miles to the north of the +7 million ounce Fort Knox Mine. Further evaluation and expansion of the mineralization is currently being undertaken with a combination of closely spaced shallow drilling, deeper, systematic core drilling and on-going bulk sampling program using an on-site gravity-based concentration plant. Drilling in 2008 will also be conducted on the company's 100% controlled Rob property, where the Company has intersected high-grade gold in near surface quartz veins similar in appearance and grade to those being mined at the nearby 5.6 million ounce Pogo, and on the Vinasale property, where the Company has entered into an exploration agreement with option to lease on a 140,000 acre property in Alaska which contains the previously identified Vinasale gold deposit.
