Tim Master, head of Meadow Bay's Nevada operations commented, "We are very excited to reportour 2011 drill plan for these drill results which provide an indication of near surface high grade gold mineralization. The results will help guide the Company's exploration program for surface upper thrust plate-hosted gold resources in the Devonian Age Slaven Chert and lower plate carbonate hosted lower plate gold mineralization in the projected Wenban and Roberts Mountain Formations, compliant with NI 43-101 standards."

Please visit the following link to see a cross section and plan map of core holes CB-01 and CB-04 showing the dip of mineralization from the surface under trench 01 and the drill plan to test the surface Slaven Chert hosted gold mineralization and the location of the lower plate Roberts Mountain test, http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/may414z.pdf.

The next round of drilling will test the surface upper plate resource with 4 core holes and thelarger lower plate Copper Canyon or Cortez Type potential with one 850 meter core hole. The Company is currently completing a comprehensive Technical Report pursuant to NI 43-101 for an in-depth discussion of these gold target types.
