Ressources Appalaches Completes Rehab of Portal and Prepares to Go Underground

RIMOUSKI, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - June 17, 2013) - Ressources Appalaches (TSX VENTURE:APP) on its path to gold production at Dufferin is pleased to announce the rehabilitation of the ramp access and completion of shotcreting the portal entrance. Ressources Appalaches is now proceeding underground with rehabbing and continued dewatering activities.

The rehabbed portal entrance has been christened as "Meguma Way" in recognition of the geological formation associated with Ressources Appalaches six surrounding claims; and which has also been associated with rich minerals deposits and gold mining operations in Nova Scotia during past generations.

The access to the underground galleries will enable Ressources Appalaches to operate at a low all-in cost per ounce based on the fact that there is no significant capital expenditure required to restart gold production and that the access to the mineralised zone is by decline with no requirement for shaft construction and complex extraction requirements.

Pictures relating to the portal, the continued progress of rehabilitation activities and development at the mine site can be found on the Company's website at:
