Conway Resources files a request for authorization to dewater the Belleterre Mine

QUEBEC CITY, Feb. 10 /CNW Telbec/ - Conway Resources Inc. ("Conway" or the "Company") (TSX-V: CWY) is pleased to report that it has filed a request for an authorization certificate to carry out development work at the Belleterre Mine. Mining consultants Experts conseils miniers U/G Inc. of Val-d'Or, Quebec, were retained to prepare the authorization certificate application.

The work described in the application includes dewatering of the mine by shaft no.1 to an approximate depth of 300 metres, driving of a 1,429-metre ramp from surface to connect to level 750' of the mine, rehabilitation of drifts and crosscuts accessible from the shaft, excavation of 2,000 metres of drifts, crosscuts and some 20 drill bays, diamond drilling and the extraction of a 10,000-tonne bulk sample from veins 14 and/or 16 and/or some other structure to be identified by drilling.

Construction of the surface facilities will begin as soon as the authorization certificate for the shaft no.1 development work has been issued. Dewatering will start once the mine ponds are operational. Surface work is expected to last three months, and underground work at least 12 months.

This work will allow the Company to define the reserves, confirm the expected grades and test the continuity of the mineralized zones, with a view to putting the Belleterre Mine into production.

Laurent Beaudoin, Conway's President and Chief Executive Officer, said that: "This is an important step for Conway, as we are nearing our goal of becoming a gold producer. The next steps will be to obtain bids for the work described in the authorization certificate and finance the project with strategic partners."
