Discovery Harbour Granted Option to Purchase 100% Ownership of Nevada Project


VANCOUVER, June 20, 2014 /CNW/ - Discovery Harbour Resources Corp ("DHR" or the "Company") (TSX-V:DHR) is pleased to announce its entry into an Exploration License with Option to Purchase dated June 19, 2014 (the "Agreement") with Blind Mice Mining Company Inc. (the "Optionor"), whereby the Optionor granted the Company an option (the "Option") to acquire 100% ownership of the 2BAR project (the "Property") located in the Table Mountain Mining District, Churchill County, Nevada. The 2BAR project is comprised of eleven patented mining claims comprising approximately 227.26 non-contiguous acres (91.97 hectares).

General terms of the Agreement are:


Three year option period with annual payment schedule of: (all amounts in US$)


Upon Execution (within two days of signing)


First Anniversary


Second Anniversary


Third Anniversary-Purchase


Total Purchase Price $2,250,000


DHR may exercise its Option to purchase 100% ownership of the Property at any time by paying the $2,250,000 purchase price, less any option payments made previous to its decision to exercise the Option;


Upon exercise of the Option by payment of the total purchase price of $2,250,000, DHR will own 100% of the Property and all attendant mining rights to the claims. There are no royalties due to the landowner;

DHR is granted exclusive rights to explore the property for three (3) years from the date of entry into the Agreement; and


DHR may terminate the Agreement at any time.


DHR is aware of five vertical shafts of unknown depths and eight adits and drifts of unknown lengths, all within the patented claim blocks comprising the property. Previous sampling encountered high grade copper and silver mineralization at surface. DHR's Qualified Person has been unable to verify the above information and it is not necessarily indicative of mineralization on the property.

A due diligence trip to the properties is presently being arranged. This trip will serve to determine if any environmental liabilities exist on the optioned claims, allow access to the outcropping mineralization on all claims for geochemical sampling and assay confirmation of previous work, determine priority drilling sites, determine what access road repairs are needed for the ingress-egress of the drilling rigs and initiate the stream sediment sampling program.

Previous exploration on the main 2BAR property suggests that the mineralization resides in a minimum of two separate zones and are separated by approximately 120 vertical feet of section. Host lithologies to the mineralization at 2BAR are Jurassic volcanics, basalts and andesites. Copper mineralization is dominated by copper oxides and carbonates, azurite, malachite and cuprite with lesser amounts of copper sulfides, chalcocite, chalcopyrite. DHR's plans for testing 2BAR this summer include approximately 2,000 feet of core drilling, mapping of outcrop and sampling of outcrop, soils over the claims area and stream sediments.

The Company intends to submit all samples (rock, core, soils and reconnaissance stream sediments) from the summer exploration program to ALS Chemex in Reno, Nevada for preparation and geochemical analysis.

Bruno Hegner, President and CEO of Discovery Harbour comments, "We are very pleased to have been granted this option and are eager to commence exploration on this project. From the results derived from previous programs on the property, to-date, we see the potential for grade and size at 2BAR."

"The acquisition of the 2Bar project does not mean that we will ignore our Wabassi VMS project in Ontario. Our efforts this summer will focus on improving the development profile of the Wabassi District through continued interaction with Provincial and First Nations leaders on access and infrastructure issues."

A finder's fee of $10,000 is payable to DeMatties LLC, a private company in the United States, in connection with the granting of the Option.
