Trading Symbols: TSX: CRJ; OTCQB: CLGRF

SASKATOON, April 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - Claude Resources Inc. ("Claude" and or the "Company") today provided an update from its 2013 underground drilling program at the Seabee Gold Operation. The underground drilling program drilled approximately 50,000 metres in an on-going effort to expand and better define the Seabee Gold Operation's current resource.

Highlights include (cut grade over true widths):

Seabee Mine:

  • Hole: U13-061: 13.16 g/t over 4.7 metres;
  • Hole: U13-066: 8.27 g/t over 7.8 metres;
  • Hole: U13-075: 12.23 g/t over 10.7 metres;
  • Hole: U13-076: 22.62 g/t over 6.1 metres;
  • Hole: U13-077: 23.58 g/t over 4.8 metres;
  • Hole: U13-087: 31.32 g/t over 2.5 metres;
  • Hole: U13-089: 49.02 g/t over 2.0 metres; and
  • Hole: U13-321: 31.54 g/t over 5.2 metres.

Santoy Mining Complex (Santoy 8 Mine and Santoy Gap Deposit):

  • Hole: SUG-13-905A: 13.28 g/t over 3.5 metres;
  • Hole: SUG-13-301: 17.32 g/t over 4.0 metres;
  • Hole: SUG-13-320: 9.64 g/t over 4.4 metres;
  • Hole: SUG-13-335: 10.34 g/t over 6.5 metres;
  • Hole: SUG-13-347: 13.90 g/t over 5.7 metres; and
  • Hole: SUG-13-355: 6.09 g/t over 8.5 metres.

Brian Skanderbeg, Senior Vice President and COO stated, "We continue to have great success in our on-going underground drill program at the Seabee Gold Operation. These results not only indicate the potential to mine higher grade tonnes but also demonstrate the opportunity and the long term viability that exists within and outside our current resources. Additionally, these results are located near current mining activities and require minimal capital and time to be included in the Company's life of mine."

In 2014, drilling at the Seabee Gold Operation will be focused on targets proximal to infrastructure with the potential to materially impact near-term production and to positively impact the Company's Mineral Reserves and Mineral Resources.  Underground drilling at the Seabee Gold Operation is anticipated to consist of 18,000 metres at the Seabee Mine and 34,000 metres at the Santoy Mining Complex. Specifically at Santoy Gap, the Company currently has two underground drill rigs that are active and are targeting to drill 27,000 metres in 2014. The Santoy Gap is expected to produce initial development ore during the second quarter and production ore in the fourth quarter. Completion of the Santoy Gap fresh-air vent raise, a key milestone to initiating production, is planned during the second quarter of 2014.

Samples were assayed by Claude's onsite non-accredited assay lab at the Seabee Gold Operation. Duplicate check assays were conducted at site as well as at TSL Laboratories in Saskatoon. Results of the spot checks were consistent with those reported. Sampling interval was established by minimum or maximum sampling lengths and geological and/or structural criteria.  200 gram samples were pulverized until greater than 80 percent passes through 150 mesh screen. 30 gram pulp samples were then analyzed for gold by fire assay with gravimetric finish (0.01 grams per tonne detection limit). Brian Skanderbeg, P.Geo., Senior Vice President and COO, Qualified Person, has reviewed the contents of this news release for accuracy.
