VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Oct. 1, 2013) - Reservoir Minerals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:RMC)(PINKSHEETS:RVRLF)(BERLIN:9RE) ("Reservoir" or the "Company"), is pleased announce that contractors have been selected to undertake an approximately 56 line-kilometre CSAMT (controlled source audio magneto telluric) geophysical exploration survey on the Company's 100% owned Nikolicevo and Kraljevica exploration permits within the prospective Timok Belt of eastern Serbia. Concurrently the Company is undertaking its own geochemical and magnetometry geophysical surveys over these permits. The Nikolicevo and Kraljevica explorations permit are immediately east and south of the Brestovac-Metovnica exploration permit, where significant copper-gold mineralization has been discovered at the Cukaru Peki Project by the Company with joint venture partner Freeport McMoRan Exploration Corporation.
Dr. Simon Ingram, President and CEO of Reservoir Minerals Inc. commented: "Given that the volcanic centres that host the Bor and Cukaru Peki mineralization typically occur in belts, we believe that there is potential for additional discoveries of this type of mineralization along trend within our 100%-owned permits."
Nikolicevo and Kraljevica Exploration Permits:
The Nikolicevo and Kraljevica Exploration Permits cover an area totalling 188.16 square kilometers in the highly prospective Timok Magmatic Complex, eastern Serbia, which includes the world-class Bor-Majdanpek mining and smelting complex with reported historical production of 6 million tonnes of copper and 300 tonnes of gold (9.65 million ounces gold) (BRGM publication BRGM/RC-51448-FR, 2002). The western limit of the Nikolicevo exploration permit is approximately 4.5 kilometres east of the Cukaru Peki discovery, (Latest company Timok News Release, September 9, 2013, Timok Project). A map showing the location of the exploration permits is provided on the Company website (Timok permit map).
The geology in both permits includes late Cretaceous andesites and volcaniclastics, which host the copper-gold mineralization in the Bor district and the Cukaru Peki discovery in the Brestovac-Metovnica exploration permit, and overlying Miocene sediments. Company geologists have identified structures that trend south from the Bor district through these permits.
