August 29, 2012: Vancouver, BC – Balmoral Resources Ltd. (Stock Profile – TSXV:BAR & OTCQX:BALMF) reported today that exploration drilling on its Martiniere Property in Central Quebec, conducted well outside the previously known extent of the Martiniere Gold System, has intersected three new, broad areas of gold mineralization.
The new discoveries materially expand the scale and potential of the gold mineralized system on the Property. In addition to the three new gold discoveries, the Company also intersected a wide interval of anomalous zinc mineralization while testing a new VMS target on the Property. The Martiniere Property, centered approximately 45 kilometres east of the Detour Lake gold deposit, is centrally located within Balmoral’s 82 kilometre long Detour Trend Gold Project in Quebec, Canada.
The three new discoveries returned anomalous gold mineralization over down hole intervals of 82.00, 25.97 and 11.00 metres (see table below). The new discoveries are located 440 metres southwest, 1,200 metres west and 2,050 metres southwest of the Company’s recently announced bonanza grade gold discovery in hole MDE-12-29 which returned 273 g/t gold over 3.88 metres (August 16, 2012).
“Today’s discoveries, in three previously untested areas of the Martiniere Property, continue to demonstrate just how regionally extensive this gold bearing system is and the tremendous opportunity it represents for the Company,” said Darin Wagner, President and CEO of Balmoral Resources.
