Integra Gold SEDAR Files Technical Report for Initial Preliminary Economic Assessment for the Lamaque Gold Project

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - April 29, 2014) - Integra Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE: ICG) ("Integra" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has filed on SEDAR today the NI 43-101 technical report for the Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA"), disclosed in the Company's news release dated March 11, 2014, for its Lamaque Gold Project ("Lamaque") located in Val-d'Or, Québec. The PEA, prepared by InnovExplo Inc. ("InnovExplo") with technical contributions from AMEC, Golder Associates, Geologica Groupe-Conseil Inc., Geopointcom Inc. and WSP Engineering, demonstrates the strong economic potential of the Lamaque Project.

The report will be available under the Company's profile on SEDAR and on the Company's website via the following link: http://www.integragold.com/i/pdf/reports/43-101_PEA_Lamaque_2014.pdf.

PEA Highlights:

  • Base Case Pre-tax IRR of 51% and NPV (5% discount rate) of CAD$146.0 M
  • Average annual production of 112,400 gold ("Au") ounces per year with peak annual production at 143,300 Au ounces per year and total production of 505,600 Au ounces
  • Life of Mine ("LOM") cash cost of CAD$665 per Au ounce and cash costs plus sustaining costs of CAD$805 per Au ounce
  • In excess of 56,600 meters ("m") in 157 drill holes has now been completed subsequent to the database cut-off date of April 24, 2013 for the resource estimates used in the PEA which highlights the strong potential for resource growth
  • Proposed underground operation with a vertical depth of 620 m and material processed at nearby mills via toll, or custom, milling
  • The plan as outlined in the PEA will have minimal impact on the community as there are no homes, businesses, or other infrastructure where the proposed mining will take place
  • Potential to significantly reduce capital expenditures by delaying development of second ramp until cash flow from the first ramp has been achieved

"We were impressed with the results of the first PEA and look forward to seeing the impact an updated resource will have on what are already very promising numbers," noted President and CEO Stephen de Jong. "With this additional 57,000 meters of drilling we are confident we will continue to see the Lamaque resource and projected mine life grow increasing the overall viability and appeal of the project."

2014 Lamaque Drill Program

Planned drilling for 2014 at the Lamaque project has been increased to a minimum of 45,000 m. This includes the recently completed 24,000 m definition program at the Triangle Zone, definition drilling at the Fortune Zone (8,000 m), exploration drilling at Plug No. 5 (5,000 m) and Mine No. 3 targets (6,000 m), and geotechnical drilling at Parallel, Triangle, and Fortune zones (2,000 m). The Plug No. 5 and Mine No. 3 targets are not currently included in the Lamaque Project's total resource and following the proposed drill programs the Company will conduct resource estimation on these targets in the latter part of 2014.

The PEA is preliminary in nature and includes inferred mineral resources that are considered too speculative geologically to have the economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves. There is no certainty that the PEA will be realized.

Project and Company Profile

Integra's Lamaque gold project is located in the heart of the Val-d'Or gold camp in the Province of Québec, Canada, approximately 550 km northwest of Montréal. Québec is rated one of the best mining jurisdictions in the world. Infrastructure, human resources and mining expertise are readily available.

The Company's primary objective is to continue to prove up additional resources while advancing the existing resource towards production. The project is divided into three main clusters of mineralization, the North, South and West Cluster. The North Cluster consists of the Parallel, Fortune, No. 5 Plug, and No. 3 Mine zones and is located approximately 1 km northwest from the South Cluster, which includes the No. 4 Plug, Triangle and Triangle South zones. The Sixteen Zone and No. 6 Vein form the West Cluster. The zones from the West Cluster, as well as the Mine No. 3 and Plug No. 5 zones from the North Cluster are not included in the PEA.
