New Dimension Receives Drill Permit for Midas Gold Project, Ontario; Mapping and Sampling Completed-Preparations Commence for Diamond Drill Program

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Nov. 6, 2013) - New Dimension Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:NDR) (the "Company" or "New Dimension") is pleased to announce that final permits have been received and a contract has been signed to commence a 1,800 metre diamond drill program at the Midas gold property ("the Property"), located approximately 50 kilometres northeast of the town of Wawa in north central Ontario.

The drill program is anticipated to begin within the next week and will be supervised by Clark Exploration Consulting Inc. of Thunder Bay, Ontario, under the direction of New Dimension.

Since the agreement was announced in September to option the Midas Project from Lakeland Resources Ltd. ("Lakeland"), the Company has completed a field work program on the Property to prepare for drilling, including geological mapping, grab and channel outcrop sampling together with rock sampling from 5 trenches.

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 production royalty.

Midas Project - Background Information:

The Midas Project consists of 12 staked claims (139 units) covering 2,112 hectares within the Sault Ste. Marie Mining Division. 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 carbonatization. Gold mineralization remains open on strike and down dip.
