Tuesday, Jan 15, 2013

PERTH, Western Australia, Jan. 14, 2013 /CNW/ - The Board of CGA Mining Limited ("CGA", "the Company") (TSX Code : CGA, ASX Code : CGX) is pleased to announce that exploration drilling at the Montana North Prospect intersected 16m @ 24.42g/t Au including 6m @ 62.10g/t Au.

The Montana North Prospect is a strike continuation of the previously mined Montana vein system. Exploration drilling indicates the structure extends over 700m North West from the old Montana Pit and remains open to the North West. The structure consistently shows grades higher than previously mined and seen in this area. The main Colorado haul road crosses the southern end of the structure and hauling distance to the Mill is less than 1.5km.
