ATAC Resources provides summary of encouraging new Rackla Gold Project regional exploration results

Thursday, Jan 24, 2013

ATAC Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:ATC) is pleased to provide a summary of recently compiled results from the Company's 2012 regional-scale exploration program conducted across its 100% owned 1,700 sq/km Rackla Gold Project in central Yukon.

The comprehensive 2012 program consisted of stream sediment and soil geochemical surveys, prospecting, mapping, hand pitting, hand trenching and satellite image structural lineament analyses. Exploration emphasis was directed at previously unexplored areas outside the drilled zones along the 40 km long Nadaleen Trend at the eastern end of the property and within the 35 km long Rau Trend containing the Tiger Deposit at the western end. A total of 19,693 soil samples, 1,219 stream sediment samples and 1,526 rock samples were collected along the 185 km long property.

"The ability to consistently make significant new discoveries like Anubis, Pharaoh, Sunrise and Bengal is testimony to the district-scale potential of both trends," states Graham Downs, ATAC's CEO. "With virtually no historical gold exploration along the Rackla Gold Belt and only approximately 16% of the belt having now been geochemically surveyed, we are very optimistic that our ongoing systematic exploration will continue to produce additional discoveries."
