Highlights of this news release:
- Extension of the Bobby showing at a depth of 115 meters: 1.28 g/t Au over 7.96 meters in AK-15-21
- Extension of the Orbi showing at a depth of 70 meters: 1.05 g/t Au over 3 meters in AK-15-16
- 11 out of 22 drill holes intersected grades above 1 g/t Au in Phase 1
- Re-assay for total gold returns 19.45 g/t Au over 1 meter for the sample with visible gold
- Management present at PDAC 2015 convention booth #3019 and Core Shack booth #4N
Montreal, February 23, 2015 – Geomega Resources Inc. (“GéoMégA” or the “Company”) (TSX.V: GMA) announces the final results of its initial drilling campaign (“Phase 1“) completed on January 28, 2015 on its wholly owned Anik projet. Of the 22 drill holes completed, 13 investigated the gold showings (Bobby, Orbi and Mirador) and 9 investigated regional targets having combined geophysical and/or geochemical anomalies (soils). The final 7 drill holes completed in January 2015 allowed to verify the extensions of the Orbi and Bobby showings and the discovery of new mineralized alteration zones.
“Phase 1 on the Anik project is a success with 11 out of 22 drill holes intersecting gold grades above 1 g/t Au. The high number of gold anomalies demonstrates the presence of a fertile system in the northeast sector of the property. The information collected with Phase 1 increased our understanding of the system which will allow to plan a targeted program scheduled for summer 2015. With the Orbi and Bobby zones sector being near surface, the continuation of field work will focus on trenching in order to identify the lateral extensions of the gold zones and gain the maximum of information.” comments Alain Cayer, Vice-President Exploration of GéoMégA.

Phase 1: Significant intersections – drill holes 16 to 22
|Drill hole||Target||Azimuth/Dip Plongée||From||To||Length (m)||Au (g/t)|
|1. True width is estimated between 70 and 90% of core length.|
|2. True width is estimated between 45 and 60% of core length.|
Drill holes AK-15-16 and 17B intersected the silicified and mineralized schist zone with quartz veins characterizing the Orbi showing. In addition, at the beginning of drill hole AK-15-16, a new mineralized sedimentary unit with quartz veins containing visible gold has been identified (see press release of January 28, 2015). The actual gold content of the sample, after re-assay for total gold, is 19.45 g/t Au over 1 meter. The Orbi zone is open at depth and to the East.
Drill hole AK-15-21 intersected at a depth of 115 meters a zone of intense silicification accompanied by quartz veins and veinlets characterizing the Bobby showing. An enrichment in arsenic has also been identified. Drill holes AK-15-18 and 19B investigated the periphery of the alteration zone and intersected it over several meters. The Bobby zone is open at depth.

“Anik is composed of 151 claims and superimposes the Guercheville corridor over 22 km from East to West. The western section of the property, under explored, is adjacent to the Nelligan project currently explored in partnership by IAMGOLD and Vanstar Resources. The whole property exhibits a strong potential for gold. We are now settled and well positioned in the southern developed portion of Quebec’s Plan Nord with Anik and our flagship Montviel project.” comments Simon Britt, President and CEO of GéoMégA.
PDAC 2015 convention
During the PDAC 2015 convention in Toronto, members of the management team will welcome participants at booth #3019 from March 1 to 4, 2015. In addition, the Anik project was selected by the Core Schack committee to present Phase 1 drill core on March 1 and 2, 2015 at booth #4N.
About the Anik gold project (100% interest)
The Anik project is located approximately 40 km south of the town of Chapais, Quebec and benefits from permanent access, public infrastructure and skilled labour in the immediate project area.
About the Montviel rare earth element project (100% interest)
Montviel, located approximately 100 km north of Lebel-sur-Quévillon, Quebec and benefits from permanent access, public infrastructure and skilled labour in the immediate project area. The initial NI 43-101 resource estimate published in September 2011 identified (base case) 445,958 tonnes of neodymium oxide in the indicated category and 160,347 tonnes of neodymium oxide in the inferred category.
