Hudson River Commences Drilling on Glenrock Gold Property

Hudson River Minerals Ltd. (“Hudson River”) (TSX-V:HRM) is pleased to announce the start of a drill program on its 100% owned Glenrock property to explore for gold. The drill program will consist of a maximum of 12 drillholes, 150 m in length for a total of 2,000 m in drilling.
The first 9 holes will target the main Glenrock gold trend along a strike length of 450 m. Holes will be spaced 50 m apart. The exploration depth is estimated to be 50-75 m below surface. This trend has been previously tested by drilling, trenching and sampling back to the 1950s. In the early 1990s, Noranda Inc. completed two exploration trenches across the trend 50 m apart with grades returning 3.96 g/t Au over 8.0 m and 4.96 g/t Au over 6.0 m. Most of the historic drilling was within the top 30 m.
Three additional holes will test for the continuation to a second gold trend located north of the main zone where a previous drillhole (AR-97-08) intersected 1.34 g/t Au over 13.7 m. This north trend was intersected in two other drillholes as well, both holes returning anomalous gold. The drill program at Glenrock is estimated to take four to six weeks to complete.
