April 5, 2013: Vancouver, BC – Balmoral Resources Ltd. (Stock Profile – TSXV:BAR & OTCQX:BALMF)announced today that it has completed the winter 2013 drill program on its Detour Trend Gold Project in Quebec. Drilling was focused in and around the high-grade Martiniere West Zone and Bug Lake area gold discoveries and on exploration targets on the broader Martiniere Property. The expansion and exploration drill program was completed on time and on budget.
In total, approximately 13,600 metres of drilling were completed in 50 diamond drill holes. Twenty four holes focused on lateral and depth extensions of the Bug Lake and associated zones of gold mineralization (results pending), nine holes on vertical and lateral extensions of the West Zone at depths below 150 metres (results pending) and eighteen first pass exploration holes which were completed outside the areas of previous testing on the Property (results of sixteen holes (MDX-13-08 to -23) have now been received and reported).
Results received to date (see: News – March 4, 2013) have indicated that high-grade gold mineralization can now be traced for over 850 metres along the trend of the Martiniere West Zone, more than doubling the previously known length of this trend and extending to over 2,000 metres the northeast-southwest strike extent of the Martiniere gold system. As well, recently received results indicate the discovery of a new area of anomalous gold mineralization located approximately 500 metres northeast of the Bug Lake Zone in an area of the property which had not been previously.
