TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 17, 2013) - Red Mile Minerals Corp. (TSX VENTURE:RDM) ("Red Mile" or the "Company") is pleased to provide an update on the exploration program at the Blue Quartz Property.
The focus of the fall exploration drill program was to continue to expand the gold mineralization to depth in the area of the Blue Quartz Mine Shaft.
The drilling program targeted the Main Zone with three drill intercepts from two new drill holes plus the extension of a previous hole, for a total of 941.3 meters. Results are anticipated in late January, 2013. The Program is following up on the positive results from the previous drill program, which included 13.95 grams gold over 2.0 meters and 1.3 grams gold over 63 meters.
The Blue Quartz property is reported to have produced gold from high grade veins during the 1920s and 30s. Production on the property took place with underground mining operations which extended to a depth at the 740 foot level including 6000 ft of crosscutting later workings and drifting, over half of which was on the 500 foot level.
In addition, the Company announces that, subject to regulatory approval, it has granted, under its Incentive Stock Option Plan, a total of 900,000 incentive stock options to certain employees, officers, directors and/or consultants at a price of $0.10 per share, exercisable for a period of five years.
