New Dimension Options Midas Gold Project in Ontario from Lakeland Resources

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Sept. 16, 2013) - New Dimension Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:NDR) (the "Company" or "New Dimension") is pleased to report that it has executed an option agreement (the "Agreement") with Lakeland Resources Inc. ("Lakeland") to earn a 70% interest in the Midas gold property ("the Property") located in the Sault Ste. Marie Mining Division of north central Ontario.

"The Midas gold project allows New Dimension access to a quality exploration property in a permissive gold district of northern Ontario, said Fred Hewett, President & CEO of New Dimension. "The Property, which has produced positive drill results combined with multiple undrilled geophysical and surface targets, more than meets the Company's criteria as a favorable investment opportunity within this mining friendly region of Ontario."

New Dimension is currently finalizing a budget and obtaining drill permits for the Property with an upcoming diamond drill program anticipated shortly.

The Midas Project:

The Midas Project consists of 12 staked claims (139 units) covering 2,112 hectares and is situated approximately 50 kilometres northeast of the town of Wawa in northern Ontario. The Property is road accessible and lies 20 kilometres southeast of Richmont Mines' Island Gold Mine complex and Argonaut Gold's Magino Gold Project.

Sporadic exploration has been carried out in the Midas Project area, beginning in the 1940's, with most work completed in the late 1970's to 1990. Past exploration has included surface sampling, trenching airborne and ground geophysics and diamond drilling.

During the winter of 2011, Lakeland carried out ground magnetics and induced polarization in the southwestern area of the Property. To follow up this program they completed sixteen (16) diamond drill holes totaling 2,353 metres. The drilling was designed to test induced polarization anomalies and surface gold showings. Drilling partially defined two gold bearing zones (zones M-11 and M-16) with fourteen (14) of the holes reporting gold mineralization. Highlights of the drilling are summarized in the following table:

  • All results shown are over core lengths. True widths are not known;
  • Drill core was industry standards NQ in size. All split or sawn core samples from Phase 1 drilling were submitted to Swastika Laboratories of Swastika, Ontario for analysis; samples from Phase II drilling were submitted to Accurassay Laboratories of Thunder Bay, Ontario. All gold assaying was performed using a 30g standard fire assay with an AA and /or gravimetric finish.

The drilling identified a broad gold bearing structure, which can be traced for over 500 metres in strike length. Work to date indicates that the gold system lies along the southern limb of a broad anticlinal fold structure and is associated with widespread silicification and carbonization. Gold mineralization remains open on strike and down dip.

The Company is presently designing a fall diamond drill program to further test the extent of the gold bearing structures.

The Agreement:

New Dimension can earn an initial 70% property interest by spending $1.2 million in exploration expenditures, issuing 1.5 million shares of New Dimension and paying $100,000 to Lakeland on or before December 31, 2016. Lakeland holds the Property under option from local prospectors and can earn a 100% interest subject to a 2% NSR, a portion of which can be purchased.

Corporate Update:

Following a strategic review of its Peruvian properties, the Company has elected not to keep the Cenepa and Cori Puncho projects in good standing and has allowed the concessions to lapse. New Dimension will now focus exclusively on its mineral projects in Canada with a priority directed toward the Midas Property, which is scheduled for drilling in the fall of 2013. The Company will also continue to aggressively review acquisition opportunities in the Americas that meet its exploration criteria.

About New Dimension Resources Ltd.:

The Company has an option to earn a 70% interest in the Midas gold property in north central Ontario from Lakeland Resources Inc. and an option to earn up to a 100% interest in 13 properties located in the Yukon from Strategic Metals Ltd.
