VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 19, 2012) - Confederation Minerals Ltd. (News - Market indicators) ("Confederation" or the "Company") is pleased to announce additional high-grade gold results from the 2012 Diamond drill program holes at the Newman-Todd property in Red Lake, Ontario.

Discussion of results:

Confederation is the operator on the Newman Todd Property and developing the project under option from Redstar Gold (TSX VENTURE:RGC). The 2012 drill program has totaled approximately 5300 metres of drilling to date in 14 drill holes. Holes NT-119 to NT-124 have been completed with results pending. The focus of the 2012 drill program has been to drill the Hinge Zone, one of many target zones along the 1.8 km strike length, on 25 metre centres in order to better understand geological controls of the gold mineralization which can potentially be extrapolated across the multi-target property. 

An updated geological interpretation indicates that there may be significant folding within the sequence and that gold mineralization may be in part controlled by this folding. Gold mineralization occurs as silica-sulphide and magnetite replacement zones within the Newman Todd Structure ("NTS"). The NTS is a large-scale hydrothermal alteration zone with muli-phase brecciation, iron-carbonate veining and widespread gold mineralization. 

Brian Bapty, President of Confederation, states, "The success rate, (in which nearly all of the over 100 holes drilled to date have intersected gold mineralization) of this program underlies both the compelling opportunity that is represented with the Newman Todd Property and confirms the Red Lake greenstone belt as a world class gold camp." 

Bob Singh, CEO of Redstar Gold, states, "The current 'fold-model' interpretation highlights a key similarity to the High Grade Zone at the Red Lake Mine complex, where folding has been primarily responsible for the distribution of gold mineralization. At these shallow depths, we have just begun to scratch the surface of this impressive new gold system in Red Lake."

Drill Highlights (See table 1 for a complete list of significant results)

  • NT-117 intersected 5.5 metres of 7.48 g/t gold including 0.50 metres of 63.3 g/t gold and 3.0 metres of 7.48 g/t gold including 1.0 metre of 15.0 g/t gold
  • NT-118 intersected 1.0 metre of 43.50 g/t gold
  • NT-115 intersected 29.0 metres of 2.04 g/t gold including 1.0 metre of 13.8 g/t gold

Exploration work at the Newman Todd project is funded by Confederation. Pursuant to an option agreement with Redstar, Confederation can earn a 50% interest in the project by spending $5.0 million on exploration, paying Redstar a total of $250,000, and issuing Redstar 500,000 shares by November 2013. To date, Confederation has spent in excess of $5.0 million dollars on exploration of the project, paid Redstar $100,000 and issued 200,000 shares. Confederation can earn an additional 20% interest by producing a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) by November 2016.

Andrea Diakow, P.Geo, is the qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 and has reviewed the technical content of this news release. Core samples from the program were cut in half using a Diamond cutting saw and were sent to Activation Laboratories Ltd. in Red Lake Ontario, an accredited mineral analysis laboratory in Red Lake, Ontario, for analysis. All samples were analyzed for gold using standard Fire Assay-AA techniques. Samples returning over 3.0 g/t gold were analyzed utilizing standard Fire Assay-Gravimetric methods. Certified gold reference standards, blanks and field duplicates were routinely inserted into the sample stream as part of Confederation's quality control/quality assurance program.

Confederation has retained Stantec for baseline environmental work and coordinating the permitting and development process:

Confederation is pleased to announce that Stantec Consulting Ltd. ("Stantec") (TSX:STN)(NYSE:STN) has been retained to provide a variety of services in support of development at the Newman Todd Property. The scope of services includes completion of a detailed "Regulatory Roadmap" outlining steps anticipated, including permitting requirements, as the project progresses towards being an operating mine. Stantec has initiated and will coordinate environmental baseline studies and will work with Confederation in the development of a "Conceptual Project Description". As exploration continues on the Newman Todd Property, Confederation believes an active dynamic approach to ensure project development times are kept to a minimum is a prudent approach to the creation of long term shareholder value.
