Results confirm the southwest extension of the Afric Gold Zone with hole WB-13-44 returning 0.66 g/t gold over 196.50 metres, including a higher grade section which returned 3.14 g/t gold over 13.00 metres interpreted by GTA to represent the south-westward continuation of the Audney vein system. Hole WB-13-43, drilled up-dip of WB-13-44, also intersected the interpreted extension of the Audney vein returning an intercept of 178.00 g/t gold over 1.00 metre.

* Reported drill intercepts are not true widths. At this time there is insufficient data with respect to the shape of the mineralization to calculate true orientations in space. None of the reported broader intercepts required capping based on the previous established capping parameters for the Northshore Property. Calculated averages on broader sections include core lengths up to 17 metres grading less than 0.1 g/t gold
** Single sample, uncapped value

Drill holes WB-13-41 and WB-13-43 each intersected broad zones of anomalous gold mineralization along the Eastern and Northeastern extensions of the Afric Zone. The collar locations for each of the holes announced are shown on the map currently on the home page of the Company's website at

"We are pleased to see continued expansion of both the Afric Gold Zone and high-grade Audney vein system," said Darin Wagner, President and CEO of Balmoral Resources. "As well, we are looking forward to the initial test of the former producing, high-grade, Northshore vein system which provides another potential avenue for growth at Northshore."

The current drill program was temporarily suspended during spring break-up and according to GTA will resume within the next few weeks. An additional 800 metres of drilling is planned. Targets will include further extensions of the Afric gold zone and initial testing in the area of the former producing Northshore mine located 500 metres north of the Afric Zone.
