Balmoral Provides Northshore Property Update

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 6, 2012) - Balmoral Resources Ltd. ("Balmoral" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:BAR)(OTCQX:BALMF) announced that the Company has received the following update regarding exploration progress on the Company's Northshore Property from GTA Resources and Mining Inc. ("GTA"). GTA is currently funding exploration on the Northshore Property.

Phase 2 Drilling Completed

The Phase 2 diamond drilling program, which consisted of eight drill holes (WB-12-13 to WB-12-20) totalling 2,431 metres has now been completed. Drilling focussed on demonstrating continuity and expanding the known extent of gold mineralization associated with the broad Afric Zone and further testing the continuity to depth of the high-grade Audney and Caly vein systems which form part of Afric Gold Zone.

On April 18, 2012 Balmoral and GTA announced assay results from holes WB-12-13 and WB-12-14 (see Balmoral news release NR12-11). Results were highlighted by:

  • Hole WB-12-14 which returned an Afric Zone intercept of 240.00 metres grading 1.41 g/t gold (uncapped; 0.99 g/t gold capped);
  • A high-grade intercept through the Caly Vein System in the same hole of 7.82 g/t gold over a core length of 12.00 metres; and
  • The extension of the Afric Zone to over 200 metres along strike and to a vertical depth of 190 metres, the Zone remaining open in all directions.

GTA has indicated that assay results from holes WB-12-15 to WB-12-20 remain pending and will be provided to the Company as they become available.

Mapping and Prospecting

A surface mapping and prospecting program is currently underway on the Property in advance of the planned Phase 3 drill program which is anticipated to commence mid-summer 2012. The surface work program will target expansions to the known high-grade vein systems on the Property and relating the abundant gold mineralization located outside the area of current and historic drilling to the Afric Gold Zone.

The Company has also been advised that it can expect receipt of a new NI43-101 technical report on the Northshore Property from GTA in the near future. Once the report has been received it will be posted on the Company's website and filed, along with the rest of the Company's corporate disclosure materials, at

GTA is currently in the first year of an Option Earn-in Agreement with Balmoral whereby GTA can earn an initial 51% interest in the Northshore Property by funding $2,500,000 in exploration, issuing to Balmoral 2,500,000 common shares and making cash payments of $50,000 over three years.
