Klondex Mines Drilling Details Three Mineralized Structures in the West Zone

RENO, NEVADA and VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/20/14 -- Klondex Mines Ltd. (TSX: KDX)(OTCQX: KLNDF), a Nevada gold exploration and development company, today announces assay results from its exploration drill program being conducted west of the main decline at its Fire Creek gold project near Elko, Nevada (Table 1).

Drill hole FC-13-120U (Figure 1) drilled from Muckbay 5 (MB5) and located approximately 30.5 m (100 ft) north of the vent raise access discovery (January 21, 2013) encountered three significant intervals of mineralization starting approximately 39.6 m (130 ft) west of the main decline and 67.1 m (220 ft) west of the Joyce Vein. Previously drilled surface holes, underground drill holes, and underground rib sampling suggests continuity of mineralization of three distinct structures in this west zone, ranging in strike length from 243.8 m (800 ft) to 335.8 m (1,100 ft) and are open along strike and up and down dip.

These structures are all parallel to the Joyce and Vonnie veins with similar distances between each. All three structures were crosscut during development work. The current drill program continues to focus on drilling to increase the confidence in the mineralization along these three structures. Future drilling will also step out to the north and south, along the main decline, to continue testing the extensions of all mineralized structures.
