VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Jan. 16, 2014) - Citation Resources Inc. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:CTT) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a formal access agreement with the community of Mezcala at its Biricu Project granting the Company permission and access to conduct drilling activities. The Mezcala region covered by the agreement encompasses substantially all of the priority drill targets previously identified by the Company in the four target areas at the Bircu Project (see prior news releases). Each of the four target areas contain the geophysical, geochemical and geological characteristics consistent with other discoveries in the area, including the neighboring Torex properties, Morelos and Media Luna, and Goldcorp's Los Filos.
Citation continues to advance the process for obtaining the permits for a planned drill program and expects to have drill permits in hand by the end of March 2014.
The Company will finalize access arrangements with two other communities to enable it to drill the other identified priority drill target after completion of its current drill program.
Citation is also pleased to announce that it has commenced a search for a President and CEO to advance exploration and drill programs. "With the drill program now eminent, we are looking to expand our leadership team to include an experienced chief executive capable of taking the company through its next phase," said Matthew Watson, current CEO and Chairman.
