TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Sept. 16, 2013) - Anaconda Mining Inc. ("Anaconda" or "the Company") - (News - Market indicators) reports today that Diamond drilling at its Romeo and Juliet prospect has intersected a new gold-bearing zone dubbed the Balcony Zone, located between the Romeo and Connecting Zones. It appears to dip steeply to the north, trends roughly east-west and is spatially associated with a northeast-trending topographic linear. Mineralization has been traced for approximately 100 meters and is open to the east, west and down dip. Gold is associated with pyritic altered mafic volcanic rocks, which is different from the Romeo and Juliet massive quartz vein hosted-style of gold mineralization. A structural interpretation is therefore underway to help guide future drilling and to understand better these positive anomalies.

President and CEO, Dustin Angelo, stated, "The discovery of the Balcony Zone is a very positive event for the Romeo and Juliet exploration program. We are very encouraged by the new style of mineralization intersected by the recent drilling. Given the wide variation in historical and current assay results throughout Romeo and Juliet and the newly discovered Balcony Zone, the Company has initiated a structural study of the entire prospect. We look forward to the structural interpretation, which should take approximately 4 weeks, to help provide direction on future exploration work."

Anaconda drilled seven holes into the Balcony Zone. Hole RJ-13-26 intersected strongly altered mafic volcanic rock containing abundant disseminated pyrite and fine quartz-carbonate veinlets, which assayed 8.4 g/t Au over a core length of 12 meters (Table 1). The hole is interpreted to have cut the mineralization at a low angle. Hole RJ-13-33 was subsequently drilled to intersect the mineralization perpendicular to hole RJ-13-26. It also contained altered mafic volcanics with heavy disseminated pyrite and quartz-carbonate veining. Hole RJ-13-33 assayed 4.35 g/t Au over 8.44 meters including 6.22 g/t Au over 1.64 meters and 5.45 g/t Au over 4.85 meters. This intersection confirms the scale and significance of the mineralization, but further work is required to establish true widths. Holes RJ-13-34 to RJ-13-37 targeted the Balcony Zone with all, but RJ-13-34, returning anomalous gold intercepts, highlighted by RJ-13-35 returning 2.91 g/t Au over 11.1 meters. (Table 1; Figure 1 - link below). Fine visible gold was observed in quartz veins in holes RJ-13-26, 35, 36 and 37.

To date, Anaconda has drilled 19 holes totaling 2,004 meters at the Romeo and Juliet prospect (Figure 2 - link below). The original goal of the program was to target down-dip extensions of the Romeo and Juliet gold-bearing quartz veins. While Anaconda intersected the Romeo and Juliet quartz veins in 13 out of 19 holes, assays results from the down-dip extensions of the Juliet and Connecting Zones were generally lower than anticipated (Table 2). However, in the Romeo Zone, hole RJ-13-32 returned 10.4 g/t Au over 0.54 meters and hole RJ-13-29 returned 3.45 g/t Au over 1.23 meters, both at depths over 100 meters. PC-13-27 intersected both the Balcony and the Romeo Zones.

Romeo and Juliet Background

The Romeo and Juliet prospect is a gold-bearing quartz vein system discovered in 1987 that is exposed approximately 1.5 kilometers northwest of the Pine Cove mine. The prospect is comprised of three zones, referred to as Juliet, Connecting, and Romeo, and have a combined strike length in excess of 300 meters. The veins trend about 30 degrees, dip approximately 60 degrees to the southeast and are up to 2 meters thick. Gold is present as fine disseminations within the quartz and as very fine clots and flakes along discrete vein margins. The prospect was previously explored with 18 shallow Diamond drill hole which tested the prospect to a maximum vertical depth of 100 meters. In the late fall of 2012, Anaconda extracted a 1,000-tonne bulk sample from the Juliet Zone. Five representative samples of crushed quartz averaging, 12.6 kg were processed at Accurassay Laboratories in Thunder Bay by cyanide extraction (bottle roll testing). The weighted average assay of the five samples was 5.71 g/t gold (Anaconda Press Release, April 4, 2013). Anaconda feels that this is representative of the near surface gold grades within the Juliet Zone.

Note: All assay intervals refer to core length and at present true thicknesses of mineralized zones are not known. The Diamond drilling was carried out by New Valley Drilling of Springdale, Newfoundland and was supervised by Silvertip Exploration Consultants Inc. The NQ core was logged and sampled at the Pine Cove mine site. Samples selected for analyses were sawn and half the sample was tagged and placed in a sealed plastic bag. Samples generally comprised one metre core intervals in altered rock and half meter intervals in quartz veins. Samples were transported by Silvertip personnel to the Eastern Analytical Laboratory in Springdale, Newfoundland for fire assay. As part of the QA-QC protocol, standards and blanks were randomly inserted during the sampling process. The remaining core is stored at the Pine Cove mine.

This news release has been reviewed and approved by David Evans, P. Geo., with Silvertip Exploration Consultants Inc., a "Qualified Person" under National Instrument 43-101.

While the Company has no reason to doubt the accuracy of the historic results, the existing data should not be relied upon until the Company's own exploration work confirms that the data meet National Instrument 43-101 standards for disclosure. Historic results and the work that generated them predate the enactment of National Instrument 43-101, and may not meet the requirements of that policy. Historical data for the Romeo and Juliet prospect were obtained from assessment files archived by the Newfoundland and Labrador Department of Natural Resources.


Headquartered in Toronto, Canada, Anaconda is a growth oriented, gold mining and exploration company with a producing asset located on the Baie Verte Peninsula in Newfoundland, Canada called the Pine Cove mine.
