Bowmore Intersects 28.8 Metres of 0.68 g\t Gold at La Scie Property

MONTRÉAL, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - Aug. 7, 2014) - Bowmore Explorations Ltd. (the "Company" or "Bowmore") (TSX VENTURE:BOW) (FRANKFURT:0B5) is pleased to announce an update of its drill program and exploration activities on the La Scie Gold property located on the eastern extremity of the Baie Verte peninsula in Newfoundland.

The objective of the Phase One diamond drill program was to 1) test the three gold zones (Burton, Isaiah, and Jonah) (see news release dated November 26, 2013), 2) test the broad zone of high purity silica averaging 99.4% SiO2 following the summer-fall 2013 regional rock sampling program (see news release dated January 16, 2014).

The drill program was partially completed in mid-May, and consisted of 9 diamond drill holes totaling 606 meters. Two holes totaling 216 meters and collared 65 meters apart were completed on the Jonah" gold zone. Anomalous gold values were intersected in both holes that are associated with disseminated pyrite-gold in silicified felsic volcanics, that are cut by auriferous quartz veins. Results are summarized below:

DDH From (m) To (m) Width (m)* Au (ppb)
LS09 11.7 40.5 28.8 680
LS11 27 42.5 15.5 560
* Apparent width

The gold intercepts that are part of the Jonah zone were identified late fall 2013 and identified an area averaging 80 meters in width and 350 meters in length with open extension to the southeast.

Due to early Spring break-up the Company could not complete the additional diamond drill holes that were planned for the Jonah zone nor was it able to drill test the Isaiah and Burton gold zones.


Seven shallow diamond drill holes were completed on the high-purity silica zone for a total of approximately 390 meters. The rich silica zone seen from surface outcrops was encountered in all holes with apparent widths ranging from 2.5 meters to 9.4 meters. A second rich silica zone was encountered in holes LS02 and LS07 with apparent widths of 8.1 to 8.7 meters. These widths are considered too narrow to allow for potential quarrying of high grade silica.

Mr. Paul Dumas, President and CEO of Bowmore Exploration Ltd., stated: "We are very pleased by the results of the Jonah zone even though only 2 holes were completed. We are also looking forward to completing the diamond drilling on the Jonah, Isaiah and Burton zones in the next two months where significant gold values have previously been identified..

Bowmore follows strict QA-QC protocol measures in keeping with industry standards and regulatory reporting requirements. All drill cores was processed using descriptive logging and systematic sampling for analysis. NQ core samples were cut in half, with one half delivered to a commercial laboratory and the other half retained for future reference. Duplicates, blanks and standards were inserted into the sample sequence. Samples reported above were sent for analysis at Eastern Analytical Laboratory in Springdale, Newfoundland, (accreditation ISO 17025). Samples were crushed and pulverized to 150 mesh where 30g aliquots were analyzed by fire assay with atomic absorption finish. Reported drill core weighted averages were calculated using a minimum of 0.3 g/t Au over successive intervals with maximum contiguous internal dilution lengths of 3.6 meters.
