Montreal, Quebec, October 4, 2013 - St-Georges Platinum and Base Metals Ltd. (CNSX: SX) (OTCQX: SXOOF) (BSE: 85G) has received and reviewed all the results from the core samples that were sent to the lab for analysis earlier this spring. The Company hereby announces that, despite the sulphide mineralization intersected in several holes, there were no economic intersections in these samples.
The drilling campaign was executed between December 2011 and May 2012 under the supervision of external consulting geologists and a contracted drilling company. The objective of the campaign was to drill 6-8 holes on the 3 historical showings and another 6 wildcat drill holes to test possible geological structures interpreted from the 2011 airborne Very Low Frequency (VLF) geophysical survey. Unfortunately, due to equipment break-down and poor weather conditions, access to the proposed drill-hole locations on the historical showings was hindered. As a result none of the historical showings were drilled and sampled successfully. However, the high sulphide content may signify the potential for better grades along strike or at depth. The high sulphide content encountered in the recent drilling is suggestive of a halo effect surrounding potential economic mineralization. The Company is currently evaluating the geophysical and surface geological characteristics in conjunction with the recent drilling in order to vector in on more promising targets.
