Xmet Receives Drill Permits for Its 100% Owned Grasset Property, the Eastern Extension of Balmoral Resources' Grasset

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Sept. 16, 2014) - Xmet Inc. ("Xmet" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:XME) is pleased to announce that it has received its work and drill permit for its Grasset Property from the Province of Quebec's Ministry of Natural Resources.

During our previous geophysical work on the Grasset property, Xmet identified four high priority targets that have been selected for diamond drill testing. The project is located immediately adjacent to and along strike to Balmoral Resources' Grasset project, which lies on the Detour/Sunday Lake deformation zone. Balmoral has had excellent results on its Grasset project yielding significant gold, nickel and platinum group metal intersection in recent months. As a result, Xmet has decided to pursue its own aggressive exploration and drill program.

"As noted in previous news releases, the Blackflake West is our priority and we are currently in the midst of our work program on that property. However our Grasset project also deserves significant attention given our previous geophysical results along with the results that our neighbour, Balmoral Resources, have delivered as of late. Our Grasset Project is highly prospective and holds significant potential for Xmet and its shareholders," said Alexander Stewart, Xmet's Chairman and CEO.

About Xmet's Grasset Property

Two mineral occurrences have been identified on the property. The Ingamar occurrence consisting of 0.93 g/t Au over 1.83 metres and the Harricana-Turgeon occurrence of 0.50% Cu over 1.0 metres, both of which are located along the south shore of the lake. In addition, on the western shore of the lake, a few hundred metres from the property boundary is a showing reported to have assayed 5.5 g/t Au in a grab sample. Charles Beaudry, the QP for this news release, visited the property in the early 1980's and sampled the outcropping occurrences for another company, confirming the presence of elevated gold and copper values. However analytical results from this sampling were not submitted for assessment work and are not presently available for publication.

Ground Geophysics Completed to Date by Xmet

In March 2012 Xmet mobilized a geophysical crew onto the property to carry out 28 line km of a gradient induced polarization survey over the interpreted trace of the Detour-Sunday Lake deformation zone. Results of the completed part of the survey were announced on 3 May, 2012. The survey clearly identified a favourable gold target in the survey.

Phase two of ground geophysics was completed in March 2013 totalling 68 line km of gradient IP with an additional 8 line km of a detailed pole-dipole survey also covering the SLDZ.
