Centurion Mines Corp., 285 W. North Temple, has announced a gold discovery on the Crown Resources Corp./Centurion joint venture Kings Canyon property 60 miles west of Delta and 15 miles east of the Utah-Nevada border.

"This discovery is extremely significant because the occurrence of gold is similar to the large-tonnage disseminated gold ore bodies that are being profitably mined in Nevada," said Dr. Spenst Hansen, Centurion's chief executive officer.The Crown/Centurion joint venture has been conducting an aggressive exploration and drilling program on the property since June 1990, culminating in the drilling of the discovery hole in late August. Nineteen additional holes have been drilled with 13 showing significant mineralization.
