Ferro Silicon Grade Quartzite Sampled at Forestville and New Investor Relations Consultant Appointed

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Feb. 18, 2016) - Fairmont Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:FMR) ("Fairmont") is pleased to announce that analysis by independent third party industrial users have confirmed the quartzite tested from Zone A on Fairmont's Forestville Quartzite Property (the "property') in Quebec is suitable for Ferro-Silicon. It should also be noted that testing to date on quartzite from the property would require additional upgrading for Metallurgical Silicon.

Two end users have now visited the quartzite properties, with an additional three receiving material for testing.

Forestville Quartzite Property Size Increase Following Quartzite Horizons

Fairmont also increased the size of the Property by staking an additional 790 hectares following the discovery of several new quartzite zones.

New Quartzite Zones discovered as well as Extensions to Historical Zones

Fairmont is pleased to announce the discovery of new quartzite zones on the Property. The original zones identified by Virginia Goldfields and Vogue Resources are named Zones A, B and C on Map 1. Zone D, E and F were identified by prospectors working on the property over the past 16 months. Zone G, also known as the Breton Zone, was discovered by members of the Forestville CFP while road work was underway to Zone A in the fall of 2015. All Zones are well exposed outcrops of quartzite. Based on mapping and geological and geophysical interpretation to date, Zones A, B, C and G are part of a long horizon of quartzite that matches units on published government geological maps of the region. Zone D and E are new discoveries identified along logging roads into the property. Zone F is the interpreted north-western extension of Zones A, B and C, and is intermittently exposed over more than 500m of strike length. Map 1 shows the location of the quartzite zones and property.

Fairmont has completed core holes at Zone A, D, E and F. Samples from the drilling have yet to be sent to the laboratory for analysis.
