Marathon Gold Announces Filing of Golden Chest Technical Report

TORONTO, Nov. 25, 2011 /CNW/ - Marathon Gold Corporation (“Marathon” or the “Company”) (MOZ: TSX) reported that the NI 43-101 “Technical Report on the Golden Chest Property, Idaho, United States” by Charley Murahwi, P.Geo., FAusIMM and Richard Gowans, P.Eng. of Micon International Limited (“Micon”) dated November 24, 2011 was filed under the profile of the Company on Sedar today.

The report contains several historical estimates reported on the Golden Chest property which Marathon has referred to in previous disclosure, and clarifies that Marathon is not treating such estimates as current mineral resources or mineral reserves under NI 43-101. A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the historical estimates as a current mineral resource or mineral reserve and as such, should not be relied upon.

The report also contains a description of the exploration work that has been conducted on the Golden Chest Property since Marathon acquired its interest in the Golden Chest LLC joint venture in December 2010. Micon International Limited has been hired by Marathon and its joint venture partner New Jersey Mining Company to analyze the results of the drilling program in order to provide an estimate of mineral resources or mineral reserves on the Golden Chest Property under NI 43-101. It is anticipated that the analysis will be completed in the first quarter of 2012.
