Goldeye Explorations Continues to Produce Strong Gold Results at Weebigee

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - March 17, 2014) - Goldeye Explorations Limited (TSX VENTURE:GGY) is pleased to provide an update on the winter drilling program at its Weebigee Project near Sandy Lake, Northwestern Ontario. Final assay certificates have been received for holes BK14-08, 10, 11, 12, 14, 16 and 18. Highlights of gold assay results (core intercept composites) include:


BK14-16 8.59 g/t over 6.83 metres (core length; not capped)
Incl. 18.96 g/t over 2.55 metres (core length; not capped)
BK14-12 6.76 g/t over 7.03 metres (core length)
BK14-11 6.71 g/t over 5.47 metres (core length)
Incl. 18.26 g/t over 1.4 metres (core length)


BK14-18 23.15 g/t over 3.97 metres (core length; not capped)

Drilling during the current program continues to extend the strike and depth extent of the Knoll Zone. Knoll consists of a steeply dipping, highly altered and quartz veined high strain zone within a package of broadly biotite altered felsic quartz-feldspar crystal tuff. The hanging wall contact of the main gold zone at Knoll is marked by a late, mafic to ultramafic dyke that has exploited the extensional structure hosting the intense alteration and quartz veining.

CL = Core Length
TT = Estimated True Thickness

True thickness (TT) has been estimated where holes have intersected the zone at a relatively low core angle and the geometry of the zone is understood. Core Lengths (CL) where presented represent approximately 50 to 80% of the true thickness of the assayed zone. All individual gold assays have been arbitrarily capped at 50 g/t and results where this capping applies have been noted in the result tables.

Blaine Webster states: "These latest drill results are very encouraging in terms of both the continuity and grade of mineralization at Knoll. We are also excited about the significant gold intersection (23.15 g/t over 3.97 metres) drilled at RvG4, located on strike and 500 metres NW of Knoll. We have a good handle on the geometry of the zone at Knoll and it is open in all directions. We are currently working out the strike and dip attitudes of gold mineralization at RvG4 by drilling a number of short holes. The relationship between RvG4 and Knoll zones is not yet known, however alteration, quartz veining, and host lithologies are similar. There are a number of occurrences of visible gold in drill core between 43 and 62 metres downhole in drill hole BK14-18 (RvG4). We believe this is extremely encouraging.

Another area of interest tested during this program is a large fold nose located beneath the Northwest Arm of Sandy Lake. This structure has been defined by ground and airborne magnetic surveys. Hole BK14-19 was drilled from the ice across a discordant feature along the fold nose. Highly altered (hematite, serpentine, magnetite) ultramafic and biotite-rich sedimentary rocks were intersected throughout the hole. Detailed magnetic surveys are planned to further refine drill targets along this regional structure."

A preliminary drill plan and sections will be posted on the Goldeye website ( soon.

Project Logistics and QA/QC

All analyses reported in this release are from assay certificates which passed Activation Laboratories QA/QC procedures. All diamond drilling, logging and sampling was supervised in the field by David R. Jamieson, P.Geo. Drill core was logged at the Goldeye core facilities in Sandy Lake. Drill core was logged and samples marked off by Goldeye geological staff. Marked samples were cut by a diamond bladed core saw, with one half bagged in plastic for sampling and the remaining half archived at the Sandy Lake core facility. Standard and blank samples were included by Goldeye personnel in the sample stream at the core facility at a rate of approximately every 20 samples. All assays reported in this release have passed Goldeye's QA/QC program. Drill core in which visible gold was noted by the geologist was cut under the geologists supervision to facilitate equal representation of visible gold in both sampled and archived drill core. Where visible gold was noted only in one half of the cut core, this half was archived. Samples were placed in rice bags and shipped by Goldeye personnel by winter road to Red Lake. The samples were picked up in Red Lake by Activation personnel and delivered to Activation's Thunder Bay facility. Samples were fire assayed for gold. Any analysis greater than 5000 ppb was reassayed using a gravimetric finish. Activation Laboratories is a fully accredited laboratory and conforms to the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025 (ISO 9001) and CAN-P-1579 by the Standards Council of Canada. Assays reported in ppb were converted to g/t (grams gold per tonne of rock). Screen metallic assaying was used where visible gold was observed in drill core.
