Global Reports Strieborna Drill Results; Confirms High-Grade Zone and Extends Mineralization Upward

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - June 6, 2013) - Global Minerals Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:CTG)(OTCBB:GMLFF) is pleased to announce the results of 12 new drill holes from its now-completed underground drill program at its 100% owned Strieborná silver/copper project in Slovakia.

Highlights from the drilling include:

  • Drill hole STR-06-13-022 intercepted 11.7 m containing 507 g/t Silver and 1.8 % Copper
  • Drill hole STR-06-13-024 intercepted 18.2 m containing 427 g/t Silver and 1.3% Copper.
  • Drill hole STR-06-13-025 intercepted 16.7 m containing 489 g/t Silver and 1.5% Copper.
  • Drill hole STR-06-13-026intercepted 9.0 m containing 590 g/t Silver and 2.3% Copper.

(Please see the accompanying table below.)

Drilling from the 2nd drill station on level 6 (approximately 180 meters below surface) confirms that the main body of mineralization continues to extend up-dip and towards the southwest (see illustrations below). The last drill hole, STR-06-13-033, in this area intersected 7.4 meters containing 189 g/t silver and 0.8% copper approximately 10 meters below Level 6 and indicates that the mineralization extends at least 50 meters above the top of the previously projected resource. Significant vein widths and high grade silver and copper mineralization in the upward extension of the vein could improve the project's economics as a result of early access in these areas.

Bill Pincus, Global's CEO, said, "These are very exciting results and improve the size and potential economics of the property. We have intercepted some very high grades - in some cases multiple kilos of silver per tonne. The persistence of mineralization over the drill hole intercepts coupled with considerable vein thickness is impressive. The upward extension of the vein is also important as it indicates the potential for additional high grade material in areas that are most accessible in the proposed mining sequence."

The Company intends to use the results of the drill program to update its resource estimate and complete a Preliminary Economic Assessment in the third quarter of this year.

About Strieborná

Strieborná is a high-grade silver-copper vein type deposit in an historic mining district near the town of Roznava in eastern Slovakia. It has excellent expansion potential over and above the already well-defined resource. Significant infrastructure at site include a working shaft and hoisting system, extensive underground access through a series of drifts, crosscuts and tunnels and associated surface facilities.

QUALIFIED PERSON: William Bond, M.Sc., Geol. and VP Exploration for Global, is the Qualified Person (QP) under NI 43-101 responsible for the Strieborná exploration program. He has verified the drill results and other data disclosed in this news release, including sampling, analytical and test data. Field work has been conducted under his supervision. All samples were submitted to ALS Minerals for analysis in Rosia Montana, Romania and Vancouver, Canada. Gold samples were analyzed by fire assay and atomic absorption spectroscopy with a 30 gram nominal sample weight. Silver, Copper, and Antimony were analyzed by induction coupled plasma - atomic emission spectroscopy (ICP-AES) using four acid digestion methods. Mercury values were analyzed by induction coupled plasma - atomic emission spectroscopy (ICP-AES) using an aqua regia leach. Quality control and quality assurance protocols were incorporated with the submitted samples which included standards, blanks, and duplicate analysis.
