Gold Mineralisation Identified in Stockpiles at Burtville East Prospect, Western Australia

20 October 2016

ASX Code: WCN

Gold Mineralisation Identified in Stockpiles at Burtville East Prospect, Western Australia

Key Points:

  • High grade gold mineralisation identified in surface stockpiles including;

    o 38.4 g/t gold, 6.4 g/t gold, 4.9 g/t gold, 3.9 g/t gold and 3.6 g/t gold

  • Drilling application lodged

White Cliff Minerals Limited ("White Cliff" or the "Company") is pleased to report that sampling conducted over existing historically mined surface rock piles has identified substantial gold mineralisation at the Burtville East gold prospect, part of the Merolia gold project, near Laverton Western Australia.

The gold grades within the surface rock piles ranges from waste (

Managing Director Todd Hibberd commented that "Burtville East surprised us with the high grade of some of the surface rock piles. The size of the gold in soil anomaly combined with the substantial gold grades encountered in the rock pile sampling indicates that the quartz vein contains substantial gold mineralisation".

"The Company has planned an initial drilling program to test the extents of the quartz vein and has submitted a drilling application to the Department of Mines and Petroleum. Drilling approvals are expected in two-three weeks allowing the Company to test this target in the latter part of 2016".

mineralisation

The Burtville East Gold Prospect (100%)

The Burtville anomaly occurs immediately around historical workings that consist of two shafts and several mullock or ore dumps. The historical workings targeted quartz veins within strongly foliated basalts. Historical drilling intersected substantial mineralisation including 5 metres at 33 g/t gold, 2 metres at 6.65 g/t gold and 3 metres at

5.3 g/t gold.

The historical drilling indicates that the quartz vein is striking NNE and dipping steeply NW but further drilling 40 metres north and south did not locate any additional mineralisation. The recorded orientation is not consistent with the local geology or with the general orientation of the surface gold anomaly and Company geologists suspect that a more likely quartz vein orientation is NNW trending with the regional geology. If this is the case, then most of the historic drilling would have missed the quartz vein.

In August 2016 the Company conducted a detail soil geochemical sampling program that identified a substantial gold in soil anomaly that extends over 250 by 185 metre area in a roughly NNW orientation. The maximum gold values are 42,100 ppb (42.1 g/t) and 886 ppb (0.88 g/t gold) which occur adjacent to the edge of mullock dumps or ore stockpiles. There is also a large anomalous zone +100 ppb extending 150 by 75 metres and an outer halo of 250 by 185 metres of +25 ppb gold values

In October 2016 sampling of the historically mined surface rock piles reveals substantial mineralisation.

Further Work

The company has finalised a preliminary drilling program and has lodged a program of work with the Department of Mines and Petroleum. Approval to conduct drilling is expected in two-three weeks and drilling is expected to commence in November or early December.
