January 8, 2013: Vancouver, BC – Balmoral Resources Ltd. (Stock Profile – TSXV:BAR & OTCQX:BALMF) reported results from eight holes completed on the Company’s Northshore Property in Ontario. The intercepts reported today expand the Afric Gold Zone along strike to the northeast and to depth. Results continue to point to the presence of several high-grade gold bearing structures within a very broad corridor of anomalous gold mineralization. Exploration on the Northshore Property is being funded and operated by GTA Resources and Mining Inc. (“GTA”) under a previously announced option agreement between the companies.
Highlights from today’s release include:
- Hole WB-12-29 which returned two broad intercepts of anomalous gold
mineralization including two new high-grade discoveries (9.15 g/t gold
over 3.00 metres and 9.78 g/t gold over 5.00 metres), expanding the
Afric Zone to the northeast into an area of limited historic drilling.
- Hole WB-12-33 which returned an average grade of 1.37 g/t gold over
68.00 metres (including 12.16 g/t gold over 4.00 metres), representing

metres (WB-12-33), 50.90 g/t gold over 0.50 metres and a second deeper
