Ressources Appalaches: 116 g/t (3.7 oz/t) Au over 0.9 m and 4.15 g/t Au over 16.8 m at the Dufferin Mine

RIMOUSKI, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Feb. 2, 2010) - Ressources Appalaches (TSX VENTURE:APP) announces the results from ten of the 23 boreholes drilled at the Dufferin Mine, Nova Scotia. Initial results show high grades, reaching 116 g/t Au over 0.9 metre, and significant lengths, e.g., 16.8 metres at 4.15 g/t Au, particularly in Borehole F09-11.

In addition to the results from the ten boreholes presented below, samples from eleven other boreholes carrying gold values are currently in the laboratory for repeat analyses. In order to corroborate the analytical results, given the quantity and size of the gold particles (VG) observed in the drill core, about thirty samples are now being re-analyzed to confirm their grades. The results will be released as soon as they are received.

23 boreholes were drilled for a total advance of 3,173 metres. The first six Saddle-Reef type veins were systematically drilled at 75- to 150-metre intervals to supplement earlier drill sections over a length of 650 metres and down to a depth of 210 metres. The following table presents the main results from the first series of boreholes:

Analyses

The NQ-diameter drill-core samples were analyzed for gold in the ALS Group Laboratory at Val d'Or by fire assay with an atomic absorption spectrometer finish (Au-AA26). Half of the drill core from each of the samples was retained, and all the boreholes are stored on the Dufferin Mine site in Nova Scotia.
