VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Sept. 18, 2013) - Foran Mining Corporation (News - Market indicators) ("Foran" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the completion of a summer exploration program (the "Program") on the Company's landholdings surrounding its 100% owned McIlvenna Bay Deposit ("McIlvenna Bay" or the "Deposit"). The Program focused on geological mapping and the collection of surface and drill core samples for lithogeochemical analysis targeting the Hanson Lake area to the north of the Deposit, as well as the collection of drill core samples south of the Deposit in the vicinity of the Thunder Zone. The Thunder Zone is a recent high-grade copper discovery, where drilling by Foran in early 2013 returned 4.1% Cu over 3.7m, including 10.6% Cu over 1.1m (see the Foran news release dated April 8, 2013).

The objective of the Program is to aid in target generation for the discovery of additional volcanogenic massive sulphide ("VMS") deposits in Foran's landholdings. Numerous VMS showings and occurrences, as well as a small, high-grade past producing mine are known within 10 kilometres of the Deposit. Several of these zones of VMS mineralization are hosted within similar stratigraphy to the Deposit. However, direct correlation is hampered by the lack of continuous outcrop exposure, deformation, and presence of younger intrusive rocks. Future exploration will be aided through obtaining a better understanding of the location of stratigraphy with potential to host VMS mineralization, identification of related hydrothermal alteration and characterization of the nature and intensity of the hydrothermal alteration. Approximately 300 surface and 200 drill core samples were collected for lithogeochemical analysis during the Program in conjunction with a M.Sc. thesis.

The results of the Program will be interpreted in combination with various geophysical surveys conducted on Foran's landholdings. This includes a ground-based, deep-penetrating time-domain electromagnetic ("DEEP-EM") geophysical survey conducted in spring 2013, the final results of which are expected to be received by the Company in the coming weeks.

On March 27, 2013, Foran announced an increased mineral resource estimate for McIlvenna Bay, with indicated resources of 13.9 million tonnes grading 1.96% copper equivalent (1.28% Cu, 2.67% Zn, 0.49 g/t Au, 17 g/t Ag) and an inferred resource of 11.3 million tonnes grading 2.01% copper equivalent (1.32% Cu, 2.97% Zn, 0.43 g/t Au, 17 g/t Ag). For additional information on McIlvenna Bay, see the Foran news release dated March 27, 2013 or the report entitled "Technical Report on the McIlvenna Bay Project, Saskatchewan, Canada" dated December 9, 2011 at www.sedar.com or www.foranmining.com.
