La Compagnie Miniere Esperance (CME) Intersect Visible Gold in Hole S032 at 200m South-West of the Existing Hole S009 and Sulfides in Hole S033 at 3 Kilometers NE of the S014

CAYENNE, FRENCH GUYANA--(Marketwired - July 15, 2015) - La Compagnie Miniere Esperance ("CME" or the "Company") is pleased to announce positive preliminary results of its completed Phase 2 drilling campaign of 2015.

Visible gold intersection is at 190m core length in S032 which is drilled South East at -50 degrees and extent the mineralization 200 meters South-West of the Hole S009 disclosed on June 8th press release.

Diamond drill Hole S033 has intersected sulfides and quartz veins at 40.2m. This last hole of the campaign has been drilled at 3000m North-East of the S014 disclosed on June 8th press release. This hole was drilled to test the NE extension of the mineralization identified by the geochemical survey and channel samples of 2013. Hole was drilled at 325 degrees NW with an inclination of -50 degrees.

The preliminary results of this second phase of drilling show regional extent of the mineralized system at Espérance. All holes have intersected mineralized units with sulfides, quartz veins and in certain case visible gold.

The core is being log, split and samples are being sent to Filab laboratory in Surinam. The results of the completed campaign should be available by the end of July early August once received and interpreted, they will be disclosed. Images of core from hole S032 at 190m & S033 at 40.2m.

Correction of the last press release, the visible gold has been intersected at 120.65 and not 160.25m in the S027 (inversion of the 6 and the 2 in the communications).

The direction of the CME declares: "We are extremely pleased with the preliminary results of this latest diamond drilling program and taking into account the distance to the North-East of the S033, this last hole at 3 kilometers from the S014 seems to demonstrate that the Esperance site does not only contain a World class gold deposit but shows the emergence of a new mining camp."
