New Destiny Mining Corp.: News Release

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Oct. 9, 2013) - New Destiny Mining Corp. ("New Destiny") (TSX VENTURE:NED) announces that it has entered into a letter of intent dated October 7, 2013 with Nevada Rift Resources Pty Ltd, an Australian company based in South Perth, Australia, its US subsidiary (together, the "Vendor"), and Sunline Resources Limited pursuant to which New Destiny has been granted the option (the "Option") to earn an undivided 80% interest, subject only to a one and a half percent (1.5%) net smelter return royalty (the "NSR"), in all of the 194 lode mineral claims comprising the Rift Project located in Lander County, Nevada, United States of America (the "Property").

About the Rift Project:

The Rift Project is situated in Northern Nevada near the Town of Battle Mountain and occupies 3880 acres (16 km2) of highly prospective ground 45 km west of the famous Carlin Trend and 50 km southeast of the Getchell Trend. The Rift Project exposes mineralized Paleozoic rocks of the Roberts Mountains Allochton overlain by Tertiary volcanic rocks of the Northern Nevada Rift. The geological and structural settings indicate the possibility of discovering Carlin-type or siliciclastic-hosted Battle Mountain-type Au deposits. Previous exploration highlighted high levels of precious and base metals associated with iron oxides in faults whereas recent drilling near the historical Snowstorm silver mine revealed intersections of 3 m @ 0.36 g/t Au, 92 g/t Ag, 2.27 wt. % Zn and 1.5 m @ 389 g/t Ag. A strong N/NNW-oriented, 5 km-long positive gravity anomaly underlies the core of the property possibly reflecting the presence of mafic igneous rocks associated with epithermal or skarn deposits.

In consideration of the Option, New Destiny paid the Vendor U.S. $10,000 on signing of the letter of intent. New Destiny may exercise the Option and earn an 80% interest in the Property by:
