Solomon Announces More Gold Results from Bayantsagaan Project, Mongolia Thu, 16 Mar 2006 12:57:05 CST Vancouver, Canada (PRWEB) January 15, 2006 -- Solomon Resources Ltd. (SRB:TSX-V) is pleased to announce the results from its second phase of drilling at the Bayantsagaan Gold Project, located 110 km northwest of Ulaanbaatar and 35 km southwest of Centerra Gold’s Boroo gold mine. Solomon completed three additional core holes totalling 618 m in December 2005, stepping out on mineralization identified in the first phase of drilling on the property. The December drill program was suspended due to winter conditions and the seasonal break.

Two areas of gold mineralization have been identified: the north-south trending Bayantsagaan gold zone, and the recently discovered, northeast trending Sujegtei gold zone, 600 m to the northwest (SRB News Release November 2, 2005). Gold mineralization at Bayantsagaan is hosted in structural zones, within and adjacent to granitic intrusions, similar to the deposits at Boroo and Gatsuurt. Sericite-quartz-sulfide alteration minerals are present over large areas and contain variable grades of gold mineralization.

Drilling will resume with a ten hole RC drill program when weather conditions improve and will test the strike extensions of the Bayantsagaan and the Sujegtei gold zones, most notably 600 m to the northeast where these two mineralized systems intersect (see attached Map).

Bayantsagaan Gold Zone

The Bayantsagaan gold zone strikes N10°W and dips 60º NE. Gold mineralization has been traced 300 m down-dip over a strike length of 300 m in five prior drill holes. One additional hole completed in this second phase of work (BT-11) was collared 50 m to the north and intersected the Bayantsagaan zone approximately 310 m down dip. The following significant results were obtained:

From To (m) Width g/t Au
BT-11 21.00m     43.65m 22.65m 0.25g/t
          59.70m     67.40m     7.70m 0.23g/t
     127.40m 137.40m 10.00m 0.32g/t
     175.40m 195.00m 19.60m 0.18g/t
     244.20m 303.00m 58.80m 0.26g/t
Inclu- 287.00m 295.00m     8.00m 1.05g/t
ding 308.80m 332.70m 23.90m 1.46g/t
Inclu- 311.70m 314.30m     2.60m 9.23g/t
ding 352.70m 356.70m     4.00m 0.30g/t
     360.70m 373.80m 13.10m 0.30g/t

Drill hole BT-11 confirms the extension of the both the higher grade main gold zone, and the presence of extensive low grade mineralization within subsidiary structures throughout the intrusive. The system contains a higher grade structural zone that remains open both along strike and at depth, is continuous between drill hole intercepts and is enveloped by lower grade material.

Sujegtei Gold Zone

The Sujegtei gold zone is a covered mineralized zone discovered by Solomon during the first phase of drilling when drill hole BT-08 intersected 20.9 m @1.07g/t Au. The hole was collared to test a northeast trending structural zone, interpreted beneath colluvium (SRB news release November 2, 2005). Two additional holes were attempted in December to determine the trend of mineralization in the subsurface. Drill hole BT-10 was drilled beneath BT-08 to the east, and BT-12 was drilled to the northwest. Both holes failed to reach their targeted depth due to extensive faulting and broken ground indicative of a major fault system. The following significant results were obtained:

          From     To (m)     Width g/t Au
BT-10 20.20m 24.00m     3.80m 0.57 g/t
BT-12 75.80m 86.00m 10.20m 0.18 g/t
          89.60m 100.60m 11.00m 0.33 g/t
     102.60m 112.80m 10.20m 0.19 g/t

Based on these results, it can be inferred that the Sujegtei gold zone strikes northeast with a sub-vertical dip. The zone remains open to the northeast, southwest, and at depth. Drilling was stopped in mid-December due to winter conditions and the seasonal break.

Help is Here for Medicare D Recipients Thu, 16 Mar 2006 12:53:31 CST Steps to control prescription drug costs while Medicare D issues are resolved.

Vancouver, Canada (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) January 16, 2006 -- Americans frustrated in their efforts to buy medications under the new Medicare Part D program may find better alternatives, such as temporary aid from their state government or buying from Canada. Canadian pharmacies continue to offer a source of safe, low cost medications, with an average savings of 40 per cent off US retail store prices.

Since Medicare D took effect on January 1, several states launched emergency initiatives to help Medicare D recipients who have had difficulty understanding the complex eligibility process to sign up for the federal government program. Thousands of low-income elderly and disabled were distressed with paying upfront for their drugs in the New Year or with waiting hours while their local pharmacists tried to confirm eligibility status.

In response to this confusion, North Dakota and Maine have launched emergency aid to help their low-income elderly and disabled residents.

North Dakota Gov. John Hoeven has authorized the state to give a 30-day emergency supply to its residents unable to fill prescriptions through Medicare D until January 23 while the federal government and private insurers sort through program rollout issues. Maine Gov. John Baldacci extended the hours of the toll-free Pharmacy Help Line to help residents confused by plan enrolments.

Another alternative is to turn to licensed online international pharmacies who have been servicing Americans for several years, such as OneWorldRx.

“Buying from Canada is straight forward as all reputable international pharmacies offer personal customer service, a licensed pharmacist health review and home delivery,” said Amber McBain from OneWorldRx. “Where there are lapses in Medicare D coverage, Canadian pharmacies offer an excellent complement for most people.”

People caught in the confusion of Medicare D will see benefits buying from Canada:

Immediate savings of 40 per cent off US retail drugstore prices
-No hassle ordering via phone, fax or email
-No upfront fees or monthly premiums, just pay for your prescriptions and shipping fees
-Convenient home delivery
-Personalized customer service agents help fill in orders and guide you through health questionnaires
-Direct contact with licensed pharmacies to answer health questions and review personal health profiles

“The new Medicare Part D coverage has created turmoil for millions of Americans who need to protect their limited budgets and their rights as consumers,” said McBain. “Buying from Canada offers a safe choice for many of these people.”

Amber McBain is Business Development Manager at OneWorldRx, a Canadian pharmaceuticals provider partnering with international pharmacies to deliver affordable prescription medication and health solutions. As an experienced health services provider, OneWorldRx is committed to patient health and safety, premier customer service and operational excellence.

OneWorldRx is a certified member of both the Canadian International Pharmacy Association and the International Pharmacy Association of British Columbia.
AARP Medicare Report Overlooks Reality, says MedCenter Canada Inc. Thu, 16 Mar 2006 12:46:24 CST A recent AARP Bulletin report comparing savings between Medicare Part D and Canadian drugs misleads seniors about the true savings from the controversial prescription insurance program. MedCenter Canada studies show Canadian drugs are less expensive than Medicare D for an overwhelming majority of American seniors.
