Guiro Mine's Mineralization Indicates High Gravity Circuit Recoveries

QUEBEC CITY, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Nov. 10, 2014) - Komet Resources inc. (TSX VENTURE:KMT)("Komet" or the "Company") is pleased to announce positive results from metallurgical testing. The Extended Gravity Recoverable Gold (EGRG), work index and cyanide leaching performed by Peacocke & Simpson (Harare, Zimbabwe) confirms a high GRG/cyanide recovery rate (avg. 97.3%) from the Guiro gold deposit located in Burkina Faso.

The GRG testing reveals excellent results using a single Knelson concentrator, with a high recovery yield of 74%. Testing also revealed that free gold is mostly very coarse and easily retrievable. Cyanide leaching of gravity tails yielded a recovery rate of 89.6% from the leach feed (EGRG test tails) which shows promise for a standard CIL circuit. Overall GRG/leach recovery rates are therefore very high at 97.3%.

Komet President and CEO, Mr. André Gagné, stated: "We were looking for confirmation that Guiro's mineralization is easily recoverable and the results obtained in preliminary metallurgical testing are beyond our most optimistic expectations. "

The grindability and bond work index of the sample is 0.980 g/rev and 15.20kWh/st respectively, which are satisfactory. Those tests are primarily used to determine the power required to grind a ton of material and guide us in our grinding equipment selection.

The full report of Peacocke & Simpson is available on our website and SEDAR.
