Cartier Resources Inc.: 2013 Drilling Confirms Continuity of Mineralization and Increases Potential of Benoist Property

VAL-D'OR, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - May 24, 2013) -

Editor's Note: A figure is associated with this press release.

Cartier Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ECR) ("Cartier") announces that drill results returned intersections such as 12.3 g/t Au over 1.0 m included within an interval of 27.0 m grading 1.1 g/t Au and 7.5 g/t Au over 1.0 m included within an interval of 10.0 m grading 1.0 g/t Au. The results are from a five-hole for a total of 4,155 m drill program conducted beneath the Pusticamica deposit. The program confirmed the continuity and the potential of the mineralization between 450 and 700 m depth. The drilling led to the discovery of a new type of mineralization which is associated with a felsic intrusive (Figure), in addition to the Pusticamica-type. Over 225 m, six drill hole intersections graded over 4.6 g/t Au / 1.0 m and up to 24.5 g/t Au / 3.0 m*.

"The results are positive as they confirm the continuity of the mineralization at depth and found a second type of mineralization which increases the potential of the project" commented Philippe Cloutier, President and CEO.

At the depth drilled, a wide Pusticamica-type gold mineralization is associated with strong chlorite-rich hydrothermal alteration zone is cut by a felsic intrusive. This intrusive hosts over 225 m the results presented in the table below:
