New Cibolan Tech Team Completes Geologic Model

New Drill Program Designed to Confirm Reinterpretation of Data

RENO, NV--(Marketwired - Jun 2, 2015) - Cibolan Gold Corporation (OTC PINK: CIBG) (www.nevada-goldmine.com) (the "Company") completed a technical review of the 3-D geologic model which focused on structural controls for high grade (greater than 8.5 grams per tonne or 0.25 ounces per ton) mineralization at the Independence gold and silver mining project, located directly adjacent to Newmont's multi-billion dollar operating Phoenix Fortitude mining complex. 

The Company's Nevada based technical team began the review with reinterpretation of the geologic data from previous drilling on cross sections. Data from these cross sections was transferred to a level plan map to evaluate continuity of geologic contacts and mineralized structures. Existence of the previously "considered" mineralized structures has been confirmed by further investigation in the field. Two of these high grade structures, identified as the "Range Front Zone" and the "IND2 Zone" are targeted for further drilling. See the two zones in graphic 1.

"All the data seems to line up with the technical team's initial review and we believe the drilling will confirm the world class potential represented at our Independence Project in Nevada," says Daniel J. Forbush, Cibolan President and CEO, "If the new 18-hole drilling program validates what we think is under the ground, in just one area of the property, it could add millions of dollars of valuation to the operation. The drilling company is chosen and we should begin once all the technical details are completed," Mr. Forbush continued.

Both of these zones have returned high-grade intercepts with some 5 foot intervals showing greater than 1.0 gold ounce per ton (in previous drilling) which have not been offset by other drill holes. Now that Cibolan has an enhanced understanding of the structures and their expected underground behavior we have outlined a first phase drill program of 18 holes; designed to exploit and evaluate these two zones. A Notice of Intent NOI permit application to conduct exploration drilling was filed May 12, 2015 with the BLM and final approval is expected no later than June 10, 2015. The permitted drill pads and prioritized drill holes are in graphic 2.

The technical team anticipates this program adding ounces to the inventory of gold mineralization. Intercepts from previous drilling suggest this material might average 8.5 grams (0.25 ounces per ton), supplementing the lower grade resource goal of 5 million tons of 1.5 grams per tonne (0.05 ounce per ton) oxide ores. Production of lower grade mineralized material is still projected to utilize the engineered leach pad already designed and part of our pending plan of operations submission to the Bureau of Land Management. This plan is completed and held in reserve until a new technical report outlining improved grades and economic viability is completed. Should high grade material be encountered, the company would consider custom milling.

The graphic of cross section 14718340N reflects one of the multi-ounce five foot intercepts that appears to be the result of the Range Front Structure.
