MBMI Drill Program Extends High Grade Gold Zone
| ||MBMI RESOURCES INC. (MBR-TSXV) "MBMI" is pleased to report additional assay results from a diamond drill program completed on the Company's McMillan Gold Mine project located about 75 km south- west of Sudbury, Ontario. The first phase program tested for extensions of the gold mineralization and structure on strike from areas previously mined. The program has extended the zone for 130 meters on strike to the east, and 20 meters on strike to the west for a total strike length of over 400 meters. The zone remains open on strike and at depth below the old workings (265 meters). |
The best result announced in the Company's May 12 news release was 7.91g/t (0.23oz) gold over 10.85 meters in hole MM-3-04. Seven holes totaling 1077 meters were drilled. Results from Holes MM-1-04, and MM-1A-04 reported here for the first time contain 15.46 g/t (0.45oz)over 0.2 meters, and 13.92 g/t (0.40oz) over 0.52 meters. Both holes had to be abandoned within the target zone at 19 meters due to poor ground conditions. Complete results are tabulated below.

Holes MM-1-04, and Holes MM-1A-04 were drilled into the top of the C Zone and immediately to the west of the old workings and intersected a representative section of this vein. The C Zone was the main area of production in the 1930s operation of the mine.
The McMillan Gold Mine is a former gold producer that was developed on several levels to approximately 875 feet. It provides an excellent opportunity to expand an area of known gold mineralization and past production. An extensive follow up program is being planned for the property.
