Foothills project

Concurrently, the Company wishes to announce that the high-resolution helicopter-borne magnetic survey has been completed over its Foothills Property, located in St-Urbain, 100 km east of Quebec City.

As noted in the Company's previous press release, exploration surveys carried out in the field in 2014 defined two streaks of rutile-bearing ilmenite blocks spread over a strike length of 9 km in a northwest-southeast direction and a width of 5.5 km. Blocks which contain visually up to 45% rutile have a TiO2 (titanium) content reaching up to 57.6%. Glacial patterns in the area suggest a source of these blocks being located a few kilometers away in the contact zone between the St-Urbain Anorthosite complex and the surrounding gneissic rocks.

The data collected from the helicopter-borne magnetic survey are currently being processed and will be included in the property dataset in order to better pinpoint the potential sources of the rutile-bearing ilmenite blocks. A follow-up field program is slated to commence as early as spring 2015.

This press release was prepared by Mr. Marc L'Heureux, P.Geo. who is the Company's Qualified Person.
