Chibougamau Independent Mines Inc.: Drilling Intersects Large Iron, Titanium, Vanadium Zones Near Chibougamau

ROUYN-NORANDA, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Dec. 2, 2013) - Chibougamau Independent Mines Inc. ("Chibougamau Mines") (TSX VENTURE:CBG)(STUT:CLL) is pleased to provide shareholders with the analytical results of two drill holes completed in order to cross section our 100% owned Mont Sorcier North and South iron, titanium, vanadium property, 17km east of the Town of Chibougamau.

Mont Sorcier North

Hole MS-13-17 was drilled northward and for a length of 602 metres at a dip angle of 45°. Overburden depth was 2.6 metres. Magnetite bearing rock was intersected from the beginning of the drill hole to a depth of 328.4 metres (1,077.4 feet). The hole was continued in order to also cut the Sulphur Converting Sulphide horizon of pyrite and pyrrhotite which has reported erratic copper and gold values. The magnetite body was intersected as follows based upon sulphur cut offs of -1% and -2%.

Sulphur (S) Content From (m) To (m) Core Length
True Width Fe203% Fe%* Ti02% V205% Magnetite %
-1% 2.6 225 222.4 155.7m
(510.8 ft)
41.00 28.6 1.12 0.23 38.14
-2% 2.6 318 315.4 220.8m
(724.4 ft)
43.19 30.2 0.96 0.22 38.53

Magnetite content was determined by Satmagan analysis by Actlabs in Ancaster, Ontario and represents the percentage of magnetite by weight. Oxides were analysed by XRF. Details of analytical methods used are available on our website, under Technical, Technical Information, Assay Methods (Actlabs)

The Mont Sorcier North Iron Property was subjected to cross sectioned drilling and metallurgical test work by Campbell Chibougamau Mines Limited, the major producing mining company in the area, which published an open pittable resource of 171,571,000 tons with a head grade of 30.0% Fe and 1.06% Ti02 which corresponds well with the analysis from our recent drill hole. The full historical report is available on the Quebec Government E-Sigeom (Examine) site under GM31867. Additional test work by the Quebec Government Mines Laboratory in 1975 using Davis Tube testers indicated an average grade of 66.2% Fe, 1.32% Ti02and 0.57% V205 in concentrate with P205 (an impurity) content at less than 0.001%.

Mont Sorcier South

Also recently, Chibougamau Mines acquired a number of claims covering much of the nearby South Iron Zone which was also drilled and outlined by Campbell Chibougamau Mines Ltd. and described in the report indicated above. A historical non-NI 43-101 resource of 102,800,000 tons grading 27.4% Fe and 1.05% Ti02 was reported with subsequent Davis Tube tests producing concentrates with 67.8% Fe, 0.95% Ti02 and 0.68% V205.

Globex recently completed hole MS-13-19 across the South Iron Zone drilling southward with a dip of 45° for a core length of 102m. The hole intersected the following:

From (m) To (m) Core Length
True Width Fe203% Fe% Ti02% V205% Magnetite %
25 102 77 54m
(177 ft)
45.5 31.8 0.75 0.44 41.4

Sulphur content was negligible over the entire core length.

The assay results correlate well with the values intersected in the historical drilling on the companies' claims.

It was projected by Campbell Chibougamau Mines Ltd. that the North Zone and South Zones within the area defined by historical drilling could generate 95.2 million tons of concentrate. The zones are open to depth.

Chibougamau Mines has not done the detailed work required to verify the historical grades and tonnages nor the metallurgical test work by Campbell Chibougamau mines Ltd and the Quebec government laboratory referred to above as the core and sample material no longer exists. The resources and metallurgical studies should be treated as historical, non NI 43-101 compliant and should not be relied upon.
