Roxmark announces early results in Northern Empire drilling program



    TORONTO, June 15 /CNW/ - Roxmark Mines Limited (TSXV - RMK) (CNQ - RMKL)
today announced early and encouraging results from its drilling program in an
area 700-912 metres east of the main shaft of the Northern Empire Mine near
Beardmore, Ontario.
    The 25-hole program is designed to define the extent of the Contact and
Power Zones in a previously undeveloped area and to confirm the historical
resources grading of 15g/t of gold (or 0.47 oz. Au/t for a total of
30,780 ounces of gold) as determined in 1999 by Peter Bevan, a consulting
geologist. Drilling continues on the remaining holes and results to date
confirm the previous resource assessment.
    "These are early days in the drilling program, however, we are pleased
that results appear, at a minimum, to confirm the historical information,
which was our goal," said Monir Younan, Roxmark President. "In addition, we
have discovered an additional zone...and our anticipation is that grading will
continue to improve as the drill rig moves further west."

    
    Results shown below are incomplete, as infill sampling is required in
    some places.

    Results presented in this news release have been reviewed by the
Qualified Person, Peter Bevan, P.Eng. The drilling program employs a Quality
Assurance/Quality Control program consistent with NI 43-101 and best industry
practice. The NQ-sized core is logged, sampled and split. The samples are
recorded, bagged and sent out to SGS Lakefield Research Limited. Samples are
analyzed for gold by FAA methods. To date, some minor check sampling has been
carried out and more is being planned, together with some blanks and two
standards of gold ores.

    About Roxmark Mines

    Roxmark Mines Limited is the leader in gold and molybdenum exploration
and development in the historically significant Geraldton-Beardmore area of
Northwest Ontario. In the last two years, Roxmark has generated cash flow from
bulk-sampled gold and molybdenum processed at its fully-permitted mill and has
the advantage of infrastructure from six formerly highly productive gold mines
located on its properties. These mines previously produced nearly two million
ounces of gold from high grade ore but were closed primarily due to
dramatically lower gold prices at the time and to boundary issues, since
eliminated.
