(OTC Bulletin Board: BHWX), announced further news to our press release of July 1st, 2010, which showed the results of the additional assays from potential gold bearing dumps at Dun Glen. The 12 previous samples were drawn from a single 60 foot trench. ALS Chemex reported to BHWX that all samples had indications of gold mineralization and 4 samples graded between .1 and .28 oz per ton. These were re-submitted to ALS Chemex for additional fire screen testing to detect the coarse gold nugget effects. The results from the additional 4 fire screen evaluations are as follows:

(DGD-07 and DGD-11 showed decreases of 10% and 23% from the original Fire Assay)
These results are in addition to 3 additional dumps previously sampled. Each of these associated dump targets had overall averages as follows: the Auld Lang Syne of 0.15 oz per ton gold, the Black Hole of 0.23 oz per ton gold and the Monroe of 0.04 oz per ton gold. The sampling on the Black Hole and Monroe dumps had areas on the dumps with numerous values higher than 0.2 oz per ton gold. The Black Hole, in particular, had 18 out of 87 samples greater than 0.2 oz per ton gold and four samples were greater than 0.8 oz per ton gold (0.83, 1.86, 4.27, and 4.77 opt gold). “We are pleased with the results from samples DGD-08 and DGD-09 which showed significant increases. The fire screen results showed a greater amount of gold in the assayed results from the fraction testing for coarse gold (ie, nugget effect),” stated Black Hawk’s CEO Kevin M. Murphy.
