TORONTO, Sept. 15, 2014 /CNW/ - Anaconda Mining Inc. ("Anaconda" or "the
Company") - (TSX: ANX) is pleased to announce the initiation of
drilling on its Stog'er Tight gold project, located approximately three
kilometers east of the Pine Cove mill along the Pine Cove mine road
(see Exhibit A: Deer Cove and Stog'er Tight Option map).
The 2014 Stog'er Tight program consists of 2,000 meters of diamond
drilling designed to infill portions of the deposit and expand the
deposit size. In addition, the Company will build on the historic data
and better understand the geological setting and distribution of gold
within the deposit. The Company's short term goal is to outline a
deposit that has at least a five-year mine life at the current Pine
Cove mill throughput rate of approximately 1,000 tonnes per day. If
Stog'er Tight has a five-year mine life, then the Company would nearly
double the life of the Pine Cove Project to almost 10 years. Drilling
will be supplemented by detailed geochemical analysis and structural
mapping of the deposit to determine geological controls on
mineralization and to develop grade-control techniques for use in
mining. The Company expects to do more drilling beyond this initial
2,000 meters along with other analytical and scoping related work to
develop the ultimate pit and mine plan.
President and CEO, Dustin Angelo, states, "The Company is implementing a
strategy to grow the Pine Cove Project by developing Pine Cove style
resources like Stog'er Tight to extend the life of the Pine Cove
Project and continue feeding the base-load production of the mill.
Through other, potentially higher grade, deposits on the Ming's Bight
Peninsula close to our mill, the Company would supplement the base-load
feed to increase the overall head grade into the mill at a potentially
lower incremental cost. Our immediate focus is on extending the life of
the project and we view the Stog'er Tight deposit as a significant
component in demonstrating our ability to do so."
History of Stog'er Tight Project:
The Company acquired a 100% undivided interest in the Stog'er Tight
project through a three-year option agreement with 1512513 Alberta Ltd.
("Alberta Ltd."), a subsidiary of Coordinates Capital, as part of
Anaconda's decision to consolidate the Pine Cove gold mining district.
In 2010, P&E Mining Consultants Inc., reported an estimated mineral
reserve of 65,200 tonnes grading 4.96 grams/tonne ("g/t") gold
(approximately 10,400 ounces), an indicated resource of 96,000 tonnes
grading 7.04 g/t gold (approximately 21,700 ounces) and an inferred
resource of 53,000 tonnes grading 5.75 g/t gold (approximately 9,800
ounces) (This is a non-NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate*).

Tight project please refer to the Company's November 20, 2013 news

Deer Cove Project Update:
The previously announced drilling program on the Deer Cove project (see
June 11, 2014 news release available at www.SEDAR.com) was completed in early September and final analytical results of the
program are pending. The results of this program will be communicated
once the final assays are completed and the Company has assessed the
significance of the data and determined the next steps required in the
Deer Cove project.
