Banks Island Gold Ltd. Intersects 19gpt Gold, 171gpt Silver, and 6.8% Copper Over 3.6m at Bob Zone

- High grade gold intersection at the Bob Zone with high copper content.

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/20/14 -- Banks Island Gold Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:BOZ) (the "Company") announces that it has received assay results from the Yellow Giant Gold Project located near Prince Rupert, BC. Reported results include diamond drilling completed at the Bob Zone.

Three diamond drill holes were recently completed at the Bob Zone. Diamond drilling focused on determining the plunge of the high-grade shoot at Bob as discussed in the previous news release on July 4th 2013.

The Company successfully intersected the mineralized vein at a depth of 142m below surface in drill hole BOB-13-32. This drillhole is approximately 60m down dip of the high grade mineralized shoot that comprises the current mineral resource at the Bob Zone. The Company believes the area around BOB-13-32 will develop into a high grade zone of mineralization similar to the upper Bob Zone.

The mineralization in BOB-13-32 is composed of massive sulphides and banded sulphides in quartz. Sections of the mineralized interval are composed of up to approximately 60% chalcopyrite. Company mineral process engineers are examining the possibility of intermittently producing copper concentrates with the planned flotation circuit, discussed by news release on January 15th, from areas of the mineralization which contain high copper values.

Drillhole BOB-13-32 included an intercept of 11.9gpt Au, 118gpt Ag, and 6.8% Cu over 3.6m. The mineralized intersection is displayed in Table 1 and Figure 1.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered.
