Armor announces initial drill results from Warmister; Includes 2.6m grading 24.3 g/t gold

VANCOUVER, June 9, 2016 /CNW/ - Armor Minerals Inc. (TSX-V: A) ("Armor" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the results of six shallow diamond drill holes targeting high grade gold in outcrop at the Warmister Project located in Buckingham, Virginia. The Company is exploring for Haile-style gold mineralization in altered volcanics and sediments in Central Virginia, pursuant to a joint venture earn-in agreement with Jack's Fork Exploration, Inc. (a privately owned Company).

The drilling program was composed of six shallow diamond drill holes targeting high grade gold in surface rock chip samples and coincident gold-in-soil anomalies covering a 300 meter long trend of anomalous gold values. All of the drill holes, with the exception of WAR16-003 were successful by intersecting gold mineralization related to late stage quartz veining over narrow thicknesses, including 24.3 g/t gold over 2.6 meters (drill thickness)  in WAR16-006 and 15.6 g/t gold over 4.1 meters (drill thickness) in WAR16-005.

Additionally, WAR16-006 intersected a wider zone 27.43 m (drill thickness) of 0.4 g/t gold associated with highly altered and silicified felsic volcanics.

Drill holes WAR16-001, 002 and 003 were collared very close to the surface sample locations and had poor core recovery through the anticipated mineralized horizons.

Follow-up exploration will focus on testing expansions of the siliceous zones and altered volcanics through additional soil sampling and additional drilling.

Qualified Person

The results of the Armor drilling results have been reviewed, verified and compiled by Donald R. Taylor, MSc., PG, a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 (NI 43-101). Mr. Taylor has more than 25 years of mineral exploration and mining experience, and is a Registered Professional Geologist through the SME (registered member #4029597).

Assays and Quality Assurance/Quality Control

To ensure reliable sample results, the Company has a rigorous QA/QC program in place; it includes the insertion of blanks and/or certified reference standards at statistical derived interval for each batch of samples. Core is photographed and split in half with one-half retained in a secured facility for verification purposes. Sample preparation (crushing and pulverizing) has been performed at ALS Minerals Laboratories, an ISO/IEC accredited lab located in Reno, Nevada. ALS Minerals Laboratories prepares a pulp of all samples and sends the pulps to their analytical laboratory in Vancouver, B.C. Canada for analysis. ALS analyzes each sample by 30 gm fire assay with an AAS finish (Au-AA23) and by ICP following a 4-acid digestion (ME-ICP61 for 33 elements) + Hg by ICPMS (HG-MS42). Any Gold values over 10 gm triggers an automatic 30 gm fire assay with gravimetric finish (Au-GRA21).
