Analyses completed by Activation Laboratories in Ancaster, Ontario utilizing the 1A2 ? Fire Assay AA, 1H INAA (INAAGEO)/Total Digestion (Total) and UT-7 Sodium Peroxide Fusion (ICP & ICPMS) analytical packages


Zn equivalent based on US$2.93/lb. for Cu, US$1.13/lb. for Pb, US$1.45/lb. for Zn US$0.53/g for Ag & US441.13/g for Au

A total of 14 drill holes comprising 3,239 metres, were completed during the initial phase of drilling on the Orvan Brook deposit, over an intermittent strike length of 1.5 kilometres (Figure 1). All of the drilling tested the deposit at shallow to moderate depths of up to 300 vertical metres with the exception of drill hole OB-17-14, that tested the deposit at a vertical depth of 400 vertical metres.

Highlighting the drill results are intercepts of 7.15% Zn, 2.35% Pb, 0.13% Cu, 56.8 g/t Ag & 0.44 g/t Au over 3.20 metres (OB-17-2), 7.38% Zn, 2.25% Pb, 0.45% Cu, 75.6 g/t Ag & 0.55 g/t Au over 5.30 metres (OB-17-08) and 4.49% Zn, 1.26% Pb, 0.22% Cu, 32.4 g/t Ag & 0.25 g/t Au over 5.40 metres (OB-17-14). The remaining assays from the drilling program are tabulated above.

A second phase of drilling has commenced testing the deeper levels of the deposit in the locale of drill hole OB-17-14 and other historic holes, that intersected 8.16% Zn, 2.85% Pb, 0.28% Cu & 82.9 g/t Ag  over 5.47 metres as well as 7.37% Zn, 2.31% Pb, 0.44% Cu & 89.2 g/t Ag  over 5.62 metres (Area of Interest on Longitudinal Section). Here, thicker intercepts of existing mineralization are currently thought to offer the best chance of defining a mineral resource with significant grades. Assays from the second phase of drilling will be released as they become available.

The technical information in this news release has been prepared and approved by Donald Hoy, President, CEO and a director of the Company. Mr. Hoy is a Qualified Person for the purpose of National Instrument 43-101.
