Braeval Mining Corporation Receives Drilling Results at Guaynopa Project in Mexico

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 01/14/14 -- Braeval Mining Corporation (TSX: BVL) ("Braeval Mining" or the "Company") reports it has received initial diamond drilling results from the Guaynopa Project located in the Chihuahua State of Mexico and determined to redirect its efforts in favour of its more prospective assets.

The Guaynopa project is located 290km northwest of the city of Chihuahua in the municipality of Madera and is made up of three mineral claims; La Esperanza, Tres Naciones, & Tayopa, totalling 546.67 hectares.

The 2013 drill program was a planned four hole, 1,200 m drill program focused on testing gold-copper skarn targets previously identified on the property. Only 3 drill holes totalling 619.15 m were completed due to limited gold mineralization encountered in the drill core.

Map System:              UTM: WGS84
Drill Hole        Easting    Northing   Azimuth       Dip  Final Depth  (m)
DHG-01            744,255   3,255,160       335       -60            176.90
DHG-02            744,325   3,254,837         0       -60            247.05
DHG-03            744,940   3,255,996       116       -60            195.20

The drill holes were planned to test the best surface anomalies at Tres Amigos and Las Chalas zones and did not intersect any significant mineralization. As a result, the drill program was curtailed.

The drill results indicate that the magnetometry anomaly was caused by a magnetic diorite intrusion and not a massive magnetite skarn as previously anticipated.

The results from the drill program have culminated in the decision for the Company to return the project back to the owner and to discontinue any work in the area.

The Company will focus its 2014 exploration efforts on the Acropunco Property located in Huancavelica, Peru where an initial phase of detailed sampling and mapping identified a principal anomalous area of over 6 square kilometres, consisting of hydrothermal alteration and associated gold anomalies. Phase One diamond drilling at Arcopunco is planned for first quarter of 2014 (weather and community relation permitting), consisting of an initial program of 1,500 m.

The Company's unaudited cash balance as of December 31, 2013, was approximately $11.0 M.

Quality Assurance/Quality Control

A total of 71 drill core samples from the Guaynopa Project were shipped to ALS Geochemistry - Chihuahua, Avenida de las Industrias No 6500 Col. Zona Industrial Nombre de Dios, Chihuahua, Mexico 31156. Samples were prepped using the ALS Global PREP31 code where core samples are crushed to 70% less than 2mm, riffle split off 250g, then pulverise split to better than 85% passing 75 microns. Gold was analyzed using the AU-AA23 package where gold is analysed by fire assay and Atomic Absorption Spectrometry finish. In addition the ME-ICP41 package for 35 element by Aqua Regia ICP-AES was used for additional element analysis. Commercially prepared standards, blanks, and field duplicates were inserted into the sample stream by the Company for a total of 12.6% QA/QC samples to ensure precision of the results.
