IRW-Press: Ximen Has Completed Compiling And Analyzing Of All Previous Exploration Data Brett Gold Property, Vernon, BC

Ximen Mining Corp. (the ‘Company’ or “Ximen”) (TSX-V: XIM) is pleased to announce that the GIS compilation of historic data on the Brett property is complete.  This is the first time that the complete property dataset has been available in digital, geographical format, to allow robust analysis, interpretation and development of a good geological model for mineralization on the property.  Ximen has entered into confidentiality agreements with several interested parties and will be sharing the property database with these parties for their independent evaluation.

Collar and down hole lithological, structural, alteration and analytical data for 131 historic drill holes was entered into the database using information from original drill logs.   Gold and/or multi-element analytical data for over 6800 individual soil samples collected from the property between 1984 and 2004 was also compiled into the GIS dataset, which includes digital topographic and orthophoto base maps. 

Preliminary analysis of the compiled data has revealed the following:

– alteration is well zoned around high gold zones in drill core and provides a vector to mineralization

– an elevation control to mineralization is implied and suggests that much of the previous drilling was too shallow to effectively test the high-gold portion of the system

– gold and silver are strongly correlated

– clay mineralogy is an important aspect of understanding zoning within the system and, in particular, vertical position

– new unrecognized structural trends are suggested, including flat to low-dipping faults, which may either control or off-set mineralization

– 65% of the property is well covered by existing soil geochemical surveys

– several strong gold and/or multi-element (Au, Ag, As, Bi, Mo, Sb) soil anomalies exist which are untested by any previous trenching or drilling

– several gold and/or silver soil anomalies remain open to the east, in a portion of the property without soil geochemical coverage

Ximen has started the 2014 work program on the Brett property.  The program will include geological mapping and select core re-logging, a ground magnetometer/VLF-EM survey, prospecting and soil sampling to follow-up targets generated by the compilation work, to refine the geological model and to prioritize targets for follow-up drill testing later in 2014.

IRW-Press: Fissions Ross McElroy, Wins PDAC Award For Canadian Discovery And Prospecting Success

Fission Uranium Corp. (‘Fission’ or “the Company’) is pleased to announce that Ross McElroy, President, COO and Chief Geologist of Fission Uranium, has been awarded the PDAC 2014 Bill Dennis Award for an important Canadian discovery and prospecting success. The award is the result of Mr. McElroy’s work in leading the team that made the Patterson Lake South (PLS) discovery in Canada’s Athabasca Basin – one of the most significant discoveries in the Basin in recent years. The 31,039 hectare PLS project is located in the southwest region of the Athabasca Basin and is 100% held by Fission Uranium Corp.

Mr. McElroy, a professional geologist with over 27 years’ experience, spent his early years with major mining companies including Cameco, Areva, and BHP Billiton and moved to the junior exploration space in 2004. He has had an instrumental role in four major discoveries in the Athabasca Basin, including two for Fission. This includes being part of the small geological team that made Cameco’s McArthur River discovery (the world’s largest high-grade uranium deposit). Whilst heading up Fission’s technical team he has made two major discoveries in the past four years, including Fission Uranium’s PLS (Patterson Lake South) discovery and Fission Energy’s J-Zone discovery at Waterbury Lake.

Ross McElroy, President, COO and Chief Geologist of Fission Uranium, commented, “It takes a team to make a discovery and I’m delighted to have won this award on behalf of Fission. 2013 was an incredible year for us and I’m thrilled that the industry has taken note of our accomplishments and chosen to single us out for the success at Patterson Lake South. I would like to thank my technical team for all their hard work and dedication and to thank PDAC for recognizing our efforts and success.”

Factors that led to the award:

— Speed and Scope: In twelve months the discovery grew from a single hole to six mineralized zones on-trend along a strike length of 1.76km. This was accomplished with $13m of exploration and 99 holes Neither TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release;

— Accuracy: >86% of holes successfully intersecting mineralization along 1.76 km trend;

— Incredible Grades: Multiple assays with extremely high uranium grades (magnitudes higher than the world average grade. Examples include:

– (hole PLS13-075) 54.5m @ 9.08% U3O8 with GT 494.86 including 21.5m @21.76% U3O8 with GT 467.84.

– (hole PLS13-072) 34.5m @ 8.15% U3O8 with GT 281.2, including 7.50m @ 19.28% U3O8, including 21.53% U3O8 over 4m

— Innovative Technology: Fission’s team, together with a private Canadian company, developed a patent-pending near surface uranium detecting airborne radiometric survey that identified the high-grade boulder field at PLS that in turn led to the main discovery.

? New Approach to Radon Gas Surveys: Ross McElroy and his team implemented the use of radon surveys in frozen ice conditions – drilling holes in the lake ice and lowering instruments down to the bottom of the lake. Despite Radon being such a mobile gas, this specific technique and results analysis has helped deliver the >86% mineralization success rate with drilling.

— Under-explored Region. The discovery was made at a time when popular consensus pointed to the east side, two hundred km away, as the place to be. The PLS project lies outside of the Basin margin whereas the consensus dictated you had to be within the Basin. Consensus also dictated that all Athabasca Basin related large-scale, near-surface discoveries had been made in a previous era.

— Shallow Depth: The contrarian PLS discovery is a large scale, shallow, high grade mineralized trend with the bulk of mineralization found so far between 55m and 250m depth below surface.

The technical information in this news release has been prepared in accordance with the Canadian regulatory requirements set out in National Instrument 43- 101 and reviewed
on behalf of the company by Ross McElroy, P.Geol. President and COO for Fission Uranium Corp., a qualified person.

IRW-Press: Cadan Resources To Commence Mining Operations

Cadan Resources Corporation (TSX VENTURE:CXD)(FRANKFURT:AOMZ25) (‘Cadan’ or the ‘Company’) is pleased to announce that the Company’s Philippines affiliate, Tribal Mining Corporation (TMC), has received the Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB) Declaration of Mining Project Feasibility (DMPF), enabling the Company to COMMENCE COMMERCIAL MINING PRODUCTION at the T’Boli gold-silver mine within the Mineral Processing and Sharing Agreement (MPSA) No. 090-97-XI.

The T’Boli Project is now fully equipped, including a trained local workforce, a fully constructed and commissioned Carbon-In-Leach (CIL) gold-silver processing plant, gravity concentrator, electro-winning circuit, tailings storage facility and powerhouse.

This decision to become a gold producer is not based on a feasibility study of mineral reserves as defined by NI 43-101 and there is no certainty the proposed operation will be economically viable. The T’Boli property hosts a reported inferred mineral resource for T’Boli of 2.4Mt at 5.5 g/t Au and 21.0 g/t Ag, equivalent to 420,000 oz of gold and 1.6 million oz of silver (Independent Technical Report, Sabena and T’Boli Properties, Philippines, dated 23 December 2002 and filed on SEDAR on 12 February, 2003). In connection with the issuance of the DMPF, the MGB reviewed and verified information on the property regarding available resources, in addition to considering the environmental, social and economic requirements of the Philippines.

Cadan’s President and CEO, Robert Butchart, stated:

‘This is a tremendous success for Cadan shareholders as the Company transitions to become a gold producer and we are ready to commence operations immediately, the people are ready, the mill plant is ready and the underground development is ready for stoping.

This is also an exciting milestone for the Government, as it is the first DMPF to be granted in South Cotabato, Mindanao and the first to be granted in the Philippines since the recent Executive Order No. 79 by the President Aquino Administration.

Cadan’s new management team has made these achievements possible since they took control in April, 2011. With the dynamic combination of local knowledge and technical expertise, we are confident that the Company and the community will prosper by responsible and productive mining.’
