VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Apr 10, 2013) - Tajiri Resources Corp. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:TAJ) reports that as of earlier today drilling at the Company's Kaburi PL Gold Project, Guyana, South America has commenced on targets defined during Phase I & II work completed by the Company in 2012.
The drilling marks the first ever modern exploration efforts of its kind on the Property and will consist of a minimum 3,000 metres over approximately 25 - 30 shallow Reverse Circulation ("RC") drill holes in order to test targets associated with the Seer gold-in-soil anomaly, defined by over 1200 'Trado' (power auger) based soil samples taken at depths of up to 7 metres, with particular focus on those targets which correlate with the Phase II lithological sample results as highlighted below. These 187 panel samples were predominantly collected from mined out artisanal pits, within the Seer anomaly, where bedrock and lateritic exposures were exposed below the highly weathered saprolite.
