Otis Joint Venture Partner Reports 0.691 gpt Au Over 123m at the Oakley Gold Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Feb. 5, 2015) - Otis Gold Corp. ("Otis" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:OOO)(OTCQX:OGLDF) today reports that its joint venture partner, Radius Gold Inc., has announced initial drill results from its Fall 2014 diamond drill program at the Blue Hill Creek Gold target, located within Otis' Oakley Gold Project in southeastern Idaho. Five diamond drill holes totalling 1,308m were drilled between August 30th and October 24th, 2014. Three holes intercepted gold mineralization, including 0.691 gpt Au over 123m (BHC14-01), 0.705 gpt Au over 41.1m (BHC14-03) and 0.405 gpt Au over 113.9m (BHC14-04) (see Radius Gold News Release dated February 5, 2015). A summary of the drill results are as follows:

Otis is excited about the drill results, and is in the process of properly analyzing and assessing the drill program prior to developing next steps for the project. One significant item that was not reported on is the presence of silver in the holes drilled, and Otis is in the process of calculating gold equivalent drill results that will be issued shortly.

The significant near-surface mineralized intervals intercepted were consistent with historical drilling results in the same area and expanded on the potential for a near-surface gold deposit. While this initial drill program did not identify deep feeder structures to the near surface mineralization, it was successful in confirming and expanding upon historic drilling. Additional analysis and discussion are being conducted to determine the next steps in developing this target, which will include additional step-out drilling and metallurgical testing. Otis will be releasing additional information shortly.

Core samples were sawed, bagged, and delivered by Radius staff to Bureau Veritas' preparation facility in Elko, NV. Samples were crushed at the Elko facility, with aliquots then pulverised and forwarded to Bureau Veritas' analytical laboratory in Vancouver, BC for analysis. Sample pulps were analysed for gold and a standard multi-element suite using Bureau Veritas analytical packages FA330 an AQ300, respectively. Pulps of two gold geochemical standards (CDN Labs: CDN-GS-5PC & CDN-GS-8C) and blank (CDN Labs: CDN-BL-10) material were routinely inserted into the sample stream to monitor analytical laboratory performance, and regular field duplicates were sampled to monitor geochemical heterogeneity.
