THEMAC Resources Group Limited Begins Follow Up Drilling at Copper Flat

ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO--(Marketwire - June 23, 2011) - THEMAC Resources Group Limited ("THEMAC" or "the Company") (TSX VENTURE:MAC) is pleased to announce that, on June 21, 2011, the Company began a follow-up drilling program on its Copper Flat project 50 km southwest of Truth or Consequences, New Mexico.

The program anticipates drilling approximately 18,000 meters of combined core and RC spread among nearly 47 holes. The initial phase will consist of infill drilling and is intended to upgrade to NI-43-101 standards previously drilled ore categories to either "indicated" or "measured".

Additional step out drilling will also be carried out and is intended to more precisely delineate the full extent of the ore body.

  • Several drill holes will test significant anomalies recently outlined by a major geophysical program carried out earlier this year. Final interpretations of this program are anticipated to be released.
  • As part of the overall program, samples will be taken for further metallurgical testing as well as geotechnical data to determine ultimate mine slope stability.
  • The Company will shortly award a prefeasibility study contract which will be carried out by an independent engineering firm with close in-house supervision. A final document is anticipated towards the end of 2011.
