TORONTO, Oct. 23, 2013 /CNW/ - Treasury Metals Inc. is pleased to
provide a summary of operational activities on its flagship Goliath
Gold Project located in northwestern Ontario and the appointment of Mr.
Murray Ferguson as Director of Community Development.
Mr. Ferguson joins Treasury Metals as a former Manager for Weyerhaeuser
and Domtar and the Ontario member of Weyerhaeuser's Canadian Aboriginal
Affairs Team. Murray brings extensive experience and relationships
with First Nations in Northwestern Ontario from his work within the
Dryden area. Murray will continue to engage with surrounding

Treasury Metals continues to work towards submitting the Goliath Gold
Project EIS to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (CEAA) in
early 2014, a major milestone in the mine permitting process. CEAA

environmental programs to support a Goliath Gold Project Mine
Highlights of recent developments include:
Completed Hydrogeology Baseline Sampling program that outlines natural
water courses and surrounding ground water levels, including 11
additional boreholes and sampling throughout the year.
Completed ARD Baseline program with EcoMetrix. Results have shown easily
mitigatable geochemical characteristics with final waste rock volumes
to be confirmed by further infill drilling.
Detailed studies for Geotechnical Mine Design overseen by MDEng of
Kingston Ontario are on-going including oriented core drilling. The
program will be completed with the upcoming infill drilling campaign.
Continued Progress on EIS by internal environmental staff towards
submitting the Goliath Project EIS to CEAA in early 2014.
Completed a number of environmental and baseline studies that were
identified in the Nordmin Environmental Gap Analysis as mentioned in
the May 14th operational update.
Completed significant portion of infill drilling campaign.
Approximately 10,000 metres were drilled for the infill campaign to
further define indicated resources.
Treasury Metals has continued work to define scope, schedule and pricing
with several mining and environmental consulting firms for both the
preparation of the Environmental Impact Statement and a mine
Treasury Metals continues to engage with surrounding communities and
Aboriginal groups through consultation and information meetings.
