LKA Gold Reports Higher Grades on First Quarter Ore Shipments

Ore grades from exploratory mining rise 81% to 2.04 ounces (57.8 grams) gold per ton over 2013 average of 1.13 ounces (32 grams).

LAKE CITY, Colo., April 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- LKA Gold Incorporated (OTCQB: LKAI) reports that the average grade of gold ore shipped/settled during the first quarter of 2014 was 2.04 ounces (57.8 grams) gold per ton. This represents an 81% increase over the 2013 full-year average grade of 1.13 ounces (32 grams) gold per ton.

Three small ore shipments, derived from exploratory mining in the North Raise area of LKA's Golden Wonder mine, yielded 184.06 ounces of gold from 90.35 dry weight tons that were delivered/sold during the quarter. Of these, two shipments totaling 47.91 tons with a grade of 2.9 ounces (82.2 grams) gold per ton were made to a private ore buyer and one shipment of 42.4 tons with a grade of 1.04 ounces (29.5 grams) was made to Kinross.

According to LKA President, Kye Abraham, "The ore grades in the North Raise continue to rise….even beyond these levels. We're anxious to see if it holds up…but it sure looks interesting."

About LKA's exploration program at its Golden Wonder Mine
Vein material is extracted as crews follow the volcanic vent system along the wall of the Uncompahgre Caldera. This method of exploratory mining and underground drilling proved successful in locating the first commercial ore body which yielded more than 133,000 ounces of gold from a single ore chute measuring less than 10,000 cubic feet. From 1998, through the second quarter of 2006, the average grade of Golden Wonder ore was 16.01 ozs. (454 grams) gold per ton. LKA believes that additional such ore chutes may exist on its mining claims. Upon resuming exploratory operations in the first quarter of 2009, LKA has shipped twenty-nine bulk ore samples containing nearly 4,000 ounces of gold with a net value, after processing, of over $4.4 million. The Company continues to seek and evaluate financing options to expand/accelerate this program. Investors are cautioned that the Company continues to generate substantial losses and additional funding and exploration work is required. A commercially viable ore reserve has yet to be established.
