Margaux Resources Ltd. Reports Additional Drilling Results

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Jan. 15, 2015) - Margaux Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:MRL) ("Margaux" or the "Company") is pleased to release the results from holes E1433 through to E1435, the final holes drilled during the Company's 2014 program at the Jersey Emerald Property (the "Property"), located near the town of Salmo in south-eastern British Columbia.

Margaux completed 578.8 metres ("m") of drilling in three drill holes as a follow-up to the significant gold intercept in bismuthinite-bearing granite in hole E1411. Gold values returned from E1411 averaged 24.98 grams per tonne ("g/t") over 10.20 m from 116.8 to 127 m depth) including 1.7 m of 63.71 g/t gold (see Margaux News Release dated November 6, 2014).

A value of 68.3 g/t gold was returned from a 0.65 m wide sample of granite-skarn breccia in hole E1433 that may correlate with the gold-bearing structure of E1411. A more prominent granite dyke, similar to that in E1411, returned 3.43 g/t gold over 1 m. The results from the recent drilling are shown below.

Gold intercepts such as these continue to provide evidence that the property has the potential to host gold zones within or adjacent to tungsten bearing zones. The recent drilling did not conclusively extend or limit the gold mineralization intercepted in E1411. Further work is required to determine the orientation and extent of this elevated-grade gold target.

Qualified Person

The Company's 2014 drilling program at the East Emerald Project was conducted under the supervision of Mr. Perry Grunenberg, P.Geo, who is the Company's Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. He has reviewed and approved the technical disclosure contained in this news release as applicable.

Quality Assurance and Quality Control ("QA/QC") Procedures

Drill core was logged and photographed at a secure facility on the Property. Selected intervals were halved using a manual core splitter, and sampled at site. The remainder of the core was kept in the box as a permanent record. Samples were placed into sealed bags that were delivered by the project geologist or by commercial freighter to the ALS Global preparation facility in Kamloops, BC.

The samples were analyzed for 51 elements using aqua regia digestion with an ICP-MS or ICP-AES finish at the ALS Global facility in Vancouver, BC. Over-grade gold was analyzed using a 25 gram split for greater accuracy.

Margaux has implemented a rigorous industry-standard QA/QC program that includes the blind insertion of certified reference materials, duplicates, and blanks into the sample stream.

About Margaux Resources Ltd.: Margaux is based in Calgary, Alberta and a publicly traded resource company with oil and gas exploration and production and an option on the Jersey Emerald Tungsten-Zinc Property near Salmo, British Columbia.
