Canarc Resource Corp. (CCM: TSX and CRCUF: OTC-BB) announced today additional drill intercepts of porphyry gold mineralization from the JQA prospect area of the Benzdorp property in Suriname.

Drill holes BZ03-13, 15 and 16 each returned significant gold grades over their entire lengths and holes BZ03-14 and 17 both intersected the margins of the mineralized zone. Assays are as follows:

Core recoveries in the saprolite continue to average approximately 76% in holes BZ03-13 to 17 and bedrock was only reached in hole BZ03-14. Core losses in the mineralized zone imply gold losses as well, so the assays reported herein may understate the actual gold grades in saprolite.

Holes BZ03-9, 10, 11 and 12 were drilled to the south of JQA diorite intrusion and porphyry mineralization in the JQS prospect area. These drill holes intersected narrow widths of low grade, vein-type mineralization hosted by andesite volcanic rocks.
