Cypress Completes NI 43-101 Technical Report on Gunman Zinc-Silver Project, Nevada

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/18/14 -- Cypress Development Corp. (TSX VENTURE:CYP)(PINKSHEETS:CYDVF)(FRANKFURT:C1Z) is pleased to announce the completion of a National Instrument (NI) 43-101 Compliant Technical Report on the Company's wholly owned 1140 acre Gunman zinc-silver-gold project located directly west of Barrick's Bald Mountain gold mine complex on the southern Carlin mineral trend in White Pine County, Nevada.

Cypress Development's Gunman project is well located on the southern extent of the Carlin Trend and contains zones of carbonate replacement style, high grade zinc and silver oxide mineralization. Cypress intends to extend this type of mineralization along strike while also closely monitoring gold and trace element data. A planned 2014 Phase 1 drill program is expected to commence this spring.

Gunman zinc-silver project location map:



Cypress Development prepared this Technical Report detailing base metal and precious metal exploration results on its 100% owned Gunman project.

Surface sampling and past drilling on the property by Cypress has resulted in the discovery of a series of zones of zinc and silver mineralization over a strike length of approximately 2500 feet. The northern most mineralization known on the property was discovered at the end of the most recent drill program in 2007 and this mineralization remains essentially unexplored.

The mineralization at Gunman appears to be of carbonate replacement style with central zones of massive mineralization being flanked by halos of partial replacement and veining. The replacements are now very strongly oxidized within 400 feet of surface. Sulfide mineralization, sphalerite, pyrite and argentite, is seen at the base of the oxidized portion of the high grade zones.

The high grade Gunman RH Zone lies in the central portion of the 2500 foot strike length of known mineralization. Mineralization within the RH Zone is spectacular for its zinc and silver grade, for the down hole interval length of the very high grade mineralization and for the continuous nature of zinc grades in excess of 5% accompanied by multi ounce silver values. The mineralization is also located close to surface.

Very impressive oxide zinc and silver mineralization was found in reverse circulation drilling of the RH Zone in several holes including hole GM-26 in August of 2000. The interval in GM-26 from 40 to 250 feet down hole, a 210 foot interval, including lower grade upper and lower contact zones, grades 13.1% zinc and 4 oz/t silver. This interval includes a 165 foot interval from 50 feet down hole to 215 feet down hole that assayed 16.6% zinc and 5 oz/t silver.

Mineralization at Gunman appears to be controlled by a series of well-developed NNE trending fracture zones. This setting is seen in other locations along the Carlin and Battle Mountain gold trends where north-south to NNE alignments of mineralization and ore zones are located in cross cutting structural zones within or adjacent to the main NNW striking trends.

The complex carbonate and calcareous clastic sediments that host the known mineralization lie in the east limb of a north striking syncline. This rock package dips steeply west into the nose of the syncline located in the western portion of the property. The syncline is cut by a series of well-developed N-S trending fault-fracture zones that appear to control the position of mineralization. Fracturing along the axis of the syncline is covered by the Cypress claim block but has not been explored by drilling to date and represents one of the high quality exploration targets on the property.

The very high grade of zinc and silver mineralization in the RH Zone is a compelling reason to continue exploration on the Gunman property. Five main exploration targets have been identified and exploration recommendations are made for each of them in this report. The five targets are:

1.  North RH Zone. Hole GD-15 intersected multiple zones of zinc-silver
    mineralization in a position approximately 1300 feet north of the RH
    Zone. The grade of the mineralization in the hole is from 0.5 to 2.0%
    zinc and has accompanying silver mineralization in the 5 to 15 ppm
    range. This low grade mineralization is very similar to that seen on
    both the east and west flanks of the RH Zone. 1200 feet of RC drilling
    in a position north and east of GD-15 is recommended. 
2.  Confirmation drilling of the high grade RH Zone is recommended in order
    to provide high quality data for a resource estimation and to obtain
    large samples of mineralization for metal recovery studies.
    Approximately 1000 feet of RC drilling is needed. 
3.  Down-dip exploration of the east limb of the syncline. No systematic
    exploration of the deeper extensions of the RH Zone has been done. It is
    recommended that an east-west fence of holes be completed into the
    footwall carbonaceous shale which underlies the known mineralization at
    the RH Zone. A total of 1800 feet of RC drilling is recommended. 
4.  Syncline axis exploration west of the RH Zone. Surface mapping and
    analysis of detailed DEM and satellite imagery indicate that the axis of
    the syncline at Gunman is strongly fractured. No drilling of the axis of
    the fold has been done. Drill testing of the target in a position down-
    dip of the RH Zone would require two holes totalling 1400 feet. 
5.  Surface sampling of carbonate rubble crop in the far north portion of
    the property, the Far North Target Area is strongly recommended as
    preliminary observations made during the staking of the north extension
    claims indicate that abundant altered carbonate rock rubble crop or near
    source float is present in a position roughly on strike with the known
    mineralization to the south. Identification of significant Zn or Ag
    mineralization in the north portion of the property would immediately
    increase the scope of the project. 

A phased approach to the recommended work is the most efficient way to proceed. Phase 1 would include items 1 and 2 above, the very important exploration drilling around RH North discovery hole GD-15 and the confirmation drilling of the RH Zone. This would amount to the drilling of 8 - 10 holes and a total of 2200 feet of R-C drilling. The phase 1 program should also include surface sampling in the Far North Target Area as this area has the potential to materially change the scope of the project at a very modest cost.

The drilling of the down dip RH target and the syncline axis fracture zone target along with follow-up and further extension drilling at RH North is recommended to form the core exploration work of a Phase 2 program. Drilling of any high quality targets that could result from the Phase 1 surface sampling at the Far North Target area could also be added to Phase 2. Priorities will be identified based on Phase 1 results. The Phase 2 program would entail approximately 4000 feet of R-C drilling.
