The summer 2014 drilling program at the East zone gold prospect consisted of 14 diamond-drill holes (NQ-diameter) totalling 1,270.42 m. Drillhole spacings were typically 12.5 m apart. Objectives of the drill program were:

  1. To fill-in and complete the historical 1987-1990 drill coverage along the northeast plunge of the zone;
  2. To possibly extend the zone up-plunge to surface to the southwest;
  3. To possibly extend the zone down-plunge to the northeast, below the limits of all historical drilling.

Drilling in 2014 tested the East zone from 10 metres to 110 metres below surface. The zone is untested below 110 metres; it continues and remains open to depth.

Golden Band is encouraged by these initial results which indicate that a discrete, near-surface, higher-grade gold occurrence exists in the East zone than what was previously indicated. The prospect has potential to be expanded through additional drilling.

The East zone is located 1.6 kilometres from the Company's Jolu gold mill, and 1.8 kilometers from the former Jolu gold mine, all 100%-owned by Golden Band. The East zone forms part of the Rod structure (comprising the principal resource at the past-producing Jolu gold mine). The Rod structure extends continuously for 3.0 kilometres from the Alimack prospect in the southwest through the Jolu gold mine to the Pam, Blindman (1850E) and East zones (2200E) in the northeast. The Rod structure was discovered in 1983; the Jolu gold mine produced for 3.5 years starting in 1988; and the Pam, Blindman and East zones were discovered and drill tested in 1985 to 1990.

QA/QC
A total of 430 samples were analyzed at Golden Bands' on-site laboratory; 38 samples were re-assayed as duplicates, 69 sample standards and blanks were routinely inserted into the sample stream and 31 samples were assayed via the "Total Pulp Metallics" method". An additional 44 samples were selected from the mineralized intervals and were sent to TSL Laboratories in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, which is an ISO/IEC guideline 17025 accredited facility, as an independent check of samples that occur within the significantly mineralized zone.

Gordon Gibson, P.Geo., Consulting Geologist, has acted as the Qualified Person as defined in National Instrument 43-101 for this disclosure and has reviewed and approved the scientific and technical information contained in this release.
