Visible Gold Mines announces lucky break drilling results and completes its Phase 2 drilling on Joutel

Wednesday, Jan 16, 2013

ROUYN-NORANDA, QC, Jan. 15, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Visible Gold Mines Inc. (TSXV: VGD) (Frankfurt: 3V4) is pleased to announce the final results from its Phase 2 "Wasa Creek/Wasa East" drilling program on the Corporation's Break project, west of Rouyn-Noranda, Québec.

The Wasa Creek 2012 drilling program is located approximately 3.0 kilometres southwest of Richmont Mines' 6.75 Mt (M+I) Wasamac project and was composed of 10 drill holes totaling 5,698 metres.  The Wasa East drilling program was composed of 3 drill holes totaling 564 metres and is located 3.5 kilometres east of Wasamac. (see map on the Corporation website at  www.visiblegoldmines.com)

The oriented data provides a new perspective on the results obtained, such that future drilling will consider these structural complexities and will be testing extensions to known NNW-SSE zones as well as other linear features in the same orientation.  At least two such magnetic lineaments, defined by a detailed magnetic survey conducted earlier by Cadillac Mining Corp., are now priority drill targets.

Under the terms of a December 2010 option agreement Visible Gold Mines can earn a 60% undivided interest in 226 of Cadillac's 239 claims by spending $4.2 million on exploration, and making a series of payments aggregating $100,000 and 500,000 shares.  To date, Visible Gold Mines has expended approximately $4.3 million and paid Cadillac Mining Corp. $75,000 and issued 300,000 common shares.

Joutel Project Option

The Corporation has completed its phase 2 drilling program for a total of 8 holes and 2,982 metres on its Joutel gold project located in the Joutel township Province of Quebec.
