VANCOUVER, Jan. 17, 2017 /CNW/ - Red Eagle Mining Corporation (TSX: R, BVL: ROTCQX: RDEMF) is pleased to announce results from the 2016 ore production stope delineation drilling programme at the San Ramon Gold Mine, Santa Rosa Gold Project, Antioquia, Colombia. The 10,000m programme was drilled from eight pads spaced over 300m of strike length. 107 diamond drill holes (SRD-0001 to SRD-0107) were drilled on approximately 15m centres from near surface to a vertical depth of 160m from surface. The programme only in-fill drilled a portion of the reserves at the San Ramon Gold Mine which overall extend for 2km of strike length and to 250m depth. The deposit is also open both at depth and on strike to the east where exploration drilling is currently underway. Results from the initial 95 holes (SRD-0001 to SRD-0095) were previously announced. Highlights from the programme include intersections:
- SRD-0027 – 10.73m at 8.91 g/t Au from 60.66m down hole (incl. 1.20m at 21.39 g/t Au and 1.10m at 35.37 g/t Au)
- SRD-0029 – 6.70m at 12.69 g/t Au from 69.80m down hole (incl. 1.40m at 45.06 g/t Au)

- SRD-0046 – 2.07m at 42.62 g/t Au from 130.70m down hole
- SRD-0047 – 5.21m at 7.47 g/t Au from 93.15m down hole (incl. 1.41m at 19.18 g/t Au)
- SRD-0049 – 7.16m at 29.03 g/t Au from 131.82m down hole (incl. 2.31m at 73.96 g/t Au)

- SRD-0083 – 4.05m at 10.45 g/t Au from 68.30m down hole
- SRD-0091 – 2.40m at 23.34 g/t Au from 72.60m down hole
- SRD-0093 – 12.60m at 16.47 g/t Au from 89.90m down hole (incl. 0.50m at 83.60 g/t Au)
- SRD-0101 – 5.15m at 33.39 g/t Au from 89.55m down hole (incl. 0.60m at 75.56 g/t Au)
- SRD-0105 – 6.15m at 12.82 g/t Au from 90.15m down hole (incl. 0.95m at 41.40 g/t Au)
Results from the delineation drilling exceeded expectations with intercepts often significantly longer that the average mining width of 3m and grades significantly higher than the reserve grade of 5.2 g/t Au. For complete drilling results, please see Table 1 – Drill Hole Intersections and Table 2 – Drill Hole Specifications. Plans and cross sections can be found on Red Eagle Mining's website. Drill assays were composited by length-weighted averaging into intersections using a 2 g/t Au cut-off grade. Due to the mining method and mining selectivity contemplated for the deposit, internal dilution was included in some intersections where considered appropriate for mining continuity.

Quality Assurance and Quality Control
All technical information for Red Eagle Mining's Santa Rosa Project in Antioquia, Colombia is obtained and reported under formal quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) procedures and guidelines. Red Eagle Mining's procedures are designed to meet or exceed C.I.M. "Best Practices Guidelines" and National Instrument 43-101 standards of disclosure. QA/QC protocols for drill core sampling and assaying include the insertion and monitoring of appropriate reference materials (certified standards, blanks and duplicates) to validate the accuracy and precision of the assay results.
All drilling samples were collected with a diamond core drilling rig using approximately one metre sample intervals following industry standard practice. Activation Laboratories Ltd. prepared and assayed the samples at their laboratory in Medellin, Colombia. Fire Assay for Au (using a 50 gram sample) with an AAS finish was carried out routinely on all samples submitted. For all samples which returned initial Au fire assays of greater than 5 g/t, a second Fire Assay for Au was performed (also using a 50 gram sample) with a gravimetric finish.
The technical information contained in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Red Eagle Mining's Vice President Exploration, Jeff Toohey P.Eng., who is a "Qualified Person" as defined under National Instrument 43-101.
