Reg Technologies Inc. and Minewest Silver and Gold Announce Silverknife Notice of Work Submitted

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 28, 2011) - Reg Technologies Inc. ("Reg" or "RRE.V" or "REGRF") (TSX VENTURE:RRE)(OTCBB:REGRF) is pleased to announce that a notice of work for the B.C. Silverknife property has been submitted to the B.C. government in support of a proposed drilling program in the amount of up to 1,500 meters.

The following work is recommended by, Paul D. Gray, P.Geo., within the 2011 Silverknife Technical report as filed on SEDAR as follows:

  • Phase I (a) - Silverknife data GIS Completion
  • Phase I (b) - Core recovery program from previous drilling completed in 1985 & 1987
  • Phase I (c) - Property survey / prospecting geological mapping
  • Phase I (d) - Detailed geophysical survey
  • Phase I (e) - Diamond drilling program 1,000 to 1,500 meters

Total budget $358,700.00

The Silverknife property represents a zone of known Ag-Zn-Pb mineralization distal to, and stratigraphically lower than the Silvertip deposit and more proximate to the Cassiar Batholith (a potential mineralizing heat source in the district). Paul D. Gray, P.Geo., author of the 43-101 report on the Silverknife property, believes the most relevant targets for mineral exploration on the Property are associated chimney-type feeder systems and mantos related to the Silvertip mineralizing event.

To date, there has been insufficient exploration work conducted to adequately define these potential targets and it is uncertain if such targets will be discovered. However, the fact the mineralization has been identified and overlaps onto the Silvertip property is a compelling reason to explore for additional zones of mineralization on the Silverknife Property.

In 1983, the Silverknife Property was staked and from 1984-1988 Reg Resources Corp. and Chevron Minerals Inc. a staged series of mineral exploration programs were conducted. Geochemistry and geophysics were the primary initial (1983-1985) exploration tools applied to Property, and following on a number of anomalies discovered in 1985 a 30 hole diamond drill program was completed. Based on this first phase drilling, a "Discovery Zone" of silver-zinc-lead mineralization was uncovered, including the following intersections:

  • Hole 85-4: 7.25m of 5.04oz/t Ag, 2.65% Pb and 3.09% Zn
  • Hole 85-6: 0.2m of 4.43oz/t Ag, 1.9% Pb and 3.42% Zn
  • Hole 85-21: 4.3 m of 29.02oz/t Ag, 10.14% Pb and 7.02% Zn

20 additional holes were collared from 1986-1987, the bulk of which were focused on defining and expanding the "Discovery Zone" mineralization on the Property. The 1987 drilling included the following mineralized intersections:

  • Hole 87-35: 18.02 m of 4.17 oz/t Ag, 1.67% Pb and 3.02% Zn
  • Hole 87-38: 9.99 m of 5.36 oz/t Ag, 1.73% Pb and 3.15% Zn
  • Hole 87-39: 4.63 m of 3.18 oz/t Ag, 4.60% Pb and 3.97% Zn
  • Hole 87-40: 5.94 m of 6.20 oz/t Ag, 3.47% Pb and 3.65% Zn
  • Hole 87-43: 8.00 m of 2.05 oz/t Ag, 1.59% Pb and 4.85% Zn
  • Hole 87-44: 3.66 m of 7.52 oz/t Ag, 6.21% Pb and 4.78% Zn

Through a series of agreements, the Property is owned as follows:

  • Reg Tech owns 8 million shares of Minewest Silver and Gold (a Reg Technologies Inc. subsidiary, British Columbia incorporated, private company), which owns a 70% working interest in the Silverknife Property subject to the 10% NPI held by Teryl;
  • Teryl owns 30% working interest and has a 10% Net Profit Interest ("NPI");
  • Reg holds a 5% net profits interest against the whole of the Property; and
  • a 1% NSR is held against the Property by SMR Investments Ltd.
  • Reg Tech is making a distribution of shares to its shareholders on a 7 to 1 basis. For every seven shares of Reg the shareholder will receive 1 share of Minewest.
