Integra Gold Corp. Intersects 14.7 g/t Gold Over 3.5 Meters at the No. 5 Plug on the Lamaque Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 5, 2011) - INTEGRA GOLD CORP. (TSX VENTURE:ICG) (The "Company") is pleased to announce results from recent drilling completed on the No. 5 Plug at its Lamaque project, located 250 metres northeast of the Parallel Vein System. The purpose of drilling the No. 5 Plug was to follow-up on several significant historical gold intercepts located adjacent to the No. 5 plug in drilling completed prior to 1987.

The Company is in the process of analyzing the historical data of the plug and plans to drill four additional diamond drill holes on the No. 5 plug as part of its recently announced 20,000 meter drill program for 2011. The drilling will test and verify the eastern limit of the diorite intrusion and the associated vein system.

"We are enthusiastic about this latest result as it confirms the potential of increasing the mineralized zone at the No. 5 Plug," comments Company CEO, John de Jong. "Compiling valuable, historical data will help us define our next drill targets and hopefully make additional discoveries as we continue to move forward with our 20,000 metre drill program for 2011."

Historical diamond drilling results on the No. 5 Plug include*:

  • 222.86 g/t gold over 2.13 m
  • 80.54 g/t gold over 0.61 m
  • 35.08 g/t gold over 3.20 m
  • 36.21 g/t gold over 1.37 m

* not NI 43-101

No. 5 Plug 

No. 5 Plug is located approximately 250 metres northeast of the Parallel Vein System and consists of a diorite intrusion bordered to the south by an E-W Shear zone. The surrounding geological units consist of intermediate to mafic volcanics. A drill program (prior to 1987) was conducted for a total of 9,262 metres and consisted of 34 historical diamond drill holes.

QUALITY ASSURANCE - QUALITY CONTROL

Thorough quality assurance and quality control program (QA/QC) protocol was utilized on the project including duplicate, blank and standard samples for all the holes. The core samples were respectively submitted directly to ALS Laboratory Group and Bourlamaque Labs in Val-d'Or for preparation and analysis. Analysis was conducted on 1 assay ton samples. Analysis of gold was by fire assay, with a gravimetric finish on samples exceeding 5 g/t gold. The gravimetric assay results were used for the reported composite intervals. The Lamaque project exploration is under the direct supervision of Alain Beauregard, P.Geol. of Geologica Inc., an independent qualified person as designated by National Instrument 43-101 who has reviewed the technical content of this release.

THE LAMAQUE PROPERTY

The Lamaque property is immediately adjacent to both the Sigma and Lamaque mines, which have produced approximately 9 million ounces of gold. The 2010 drilling campaign was initiated to expand the existing NI 43-101, inferred resource estimate at the Lamaque property which currently exists at: 375,375 gold ounces (1,238,308 tonne at 9.43 g/t gold) (WGM, 2004)

Two principal types of veins occur at the Lamaque Mine and on the property: sub-vertical and sub-horizontal veins. The veins occupy openings created by irregularities during progressive movement within the shears creating what are known as 'flats' which can be very high grade gold deposits.
