Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:EXS - News) is pleased to announce
the completion of the 2010 Eastford Lake Exploration Program. A total of 3029
meter of Diamond Drilling was completed on the Eastford Lake Gold Property.
The 2010 program consisted of 4 holes and was designed to test for extensions
of the Lynx Zone along the Eastford Lake Shear Zone (ELSZ) and in a secondary
deformation zone crossing the main shear zone. The drill holes are located as
per the attached plan map (http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/eastford_lake.pdf) .
main vein of the Lynx Gold Zone contains visible gold and appears to strike
in a north-north westerly direction and is steeply dipping to the south
south-westerly direction. The property is situated in the Kerrs, Warden,
Milligan Townships and the Rayner Lake area, south-west of Lake Abitibi,
Ontario, 90 km east of the Timmins-Porcupine gold mining camp. The Eastford
Lake Property consists of 170 contiguous unpatented mining units for a total
of 3,100 hectares.
study realized by Robert Tremblay of Val-d'Or focussed on mapping all
structural features and their correlation with gold mineralization. As a
result of this review, a first interpretative geological map of the
gold-bearing zone was developed. The drilling program is based on the
positive results that were obtained with this study. The program is
designated to determine the strike of the high grade mineralization that was
found in Hole #7.
Resources Inc. has released the results of four diamond drill holes drilled
during 2010 on their Eastford Lake Gold property. Holes 24 to 27 are reported
in this press release. In 2008, hole EG-08-07
drilled 16.6 g/t Au / 12m (the Lynx Zone) within a 400m wide northwest
trending shear zone (Eastford Lake Shear Zone or ELSZ). Holes wedged off hole #7 during 2009 confirmed the strong mineralization.
(Press release February 09, 2011)
Drill Hole #EG-10-24 (787m in length) and #EG-10-25 (743m in length) were
drilled north of the Lynx zone to test the possibility that a gold bearing,
crosscutting fault zone (hole # EG-09-23: 2.3 g/t, 2.0 g/t, 1.4 g/t, 4.6 g/t,
3.6 g/t, 2.4 g/t, 1.0 g/t, 1.6 g/t Au) may be the NNE trending extension of
the Lynx Zone. The best assay from hole EG-10-24 was
512 ppb, and from hole EG-10-25 was 414 ppb.
Drill Hole #EG-10-27 (750m in length) was designed to test the crosscutting
fault zone south of the Lynx Zone. Best assay was 153 ppb.
Drill Hole EG-10-26 (749m in length) tested the 400m wide main shear zone
about 200m northwest of the Lynx Zone. The best assays are shown below.

results of the 2010 diamond drill program suggest the following:
1. The cluster of gold assays in hole EG-10-26 occur along structural,
alteration that strike northwest of the Lynx Zone. This
suggests that the
strongest known Au mineralization in the immediate
area (including the
Lynx Zone) occurs within and is controlled by the
Eastford Lake Fault Zone.
2. The multiple Au intersections
grading up to 4.6 gpt in previously
drilled hole EG-09-23 may indicate a separate gold zone parallel
Lynx Zone, or, it
may be controlled by the crossfault.
discovery of the Lynx Gold Zone in this largely unexplored area represents a
major technical success. As a possible new gold camp associated with the
regional Destor-Porcupine Fault, it requires further systematic drilling to
test and improve the proposed geological model, extend the known gold zones
and search for new mineralized zones elsewhere on the property. Explor will
incorporate these positive results in the Eastford Lake Model and continue
with the Exploration of this possible new gold camp.
