Probe Mines Announces 600-Metre Strike Expansion of the High-Grade Zone at Borden Gold

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 04/30/14 -- Probe Mines Limited (TSX VENTURE: PRB)

Highlights:

--  The 19,000 metre expansion drilling program has successfully expanded
    the high-grade gold zone 600 metres along strike, to Section 2600mSE,
    and remains open for further expansion to the southeast;

--  The 34 completed holes drilled in the expansion program returned
    significant intersections of gold mineralization over significant
    widths, including:

Section 2100mSE

40.0 metres averaging 3.0 g/t gold

--  including 11.3 metres grading 4.5 g/t gold

Section 2200mSE

38.0 metres averaging 2.2 g/t gold

--  including 10.7 metres grading 5.1 g/t gold

Section 2300mSE

17.9 metres averaging 3.6 g/t gold

--  including 5.8 metres grading 8.4 g/t gold

Section 2400mSE

71.0 metres averaging 3.5 g/t gold

--  including 4.7 metres grading 25.1 g/t gold
--  also including 16.3 metres grading 4.5 g/t gold

Section 2500mSE

10.3 metres averaging 7.7 g/t gold

--  including 5.0 metres grading 12.1 g/t gold

--  The mineralized zone appears to be leveling off and not plunging deeper
    to the southeast. The main part of the zone appears to be remaining
    between approximately 450-550 metres depth from Section 1800mSE to
    2600mSE.

Probe Mines Limited (TSX VENTURE: PRB) ("Probe" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has received all results for its expansion drilling program (the "Program") on the Company's Borden Gold project near Chapleau, Ontario. Diamond drill holes BL14-587 to BL14-619 were received and were successful in demonstrating the continuity of the high-grade gold mineralization over 600 metres of additional strike length, which still remains open to the southeast. The program was also significant as it indicates that the High-Grade Zone ("HGZ") no longer deepens to the southeast but has leveled off and the center is remaining between approximately 450 and 550 metres depth. This could have positive implications for further exploration and potential development. All results from the expansion program will be included in the next updated 43-101-compliant Resource Estimate, which will be the first to include the HGZ.

The Program comprised 35 holes, drilled on 100 metre-spaced sections from 2100mSE to 2600mSE, with all completed holes intersecting gold mineralization. The Program was also successful in delineating the HGZ on all sections drilled. Highlights of the drilling include thick intersections of gold mineralization amenable to potential underground mining, the most notable being holes BL14-611 on Section 2400mSE which returned a 71-metre interval grading 3.5 g/t Au, including 4.7 metres of 25.1 g/t Au; and BL14-616W on Section 2100m SE consisting of 40 metres of 3.0 g/t Au, including 11.3 metres of 4.5 g/t Au. High-grade mineralization was also reported from hole BL14-594 on Section 2500mSE, returning 10.3 metres of 7.7 g/t Au, including 5.0 metres averaging 12.1 g/t Au.

Only one hole, BL14-608, was drilled on Section 2600mSE, but successfully intersected gold mineralization, including almost three metres averaging 8.7 g/t Au within a broad envelope of 26.6 metres grading 1.6 g/t Au. This indicates that there is still potential for further expansion of the HGZ.

The program represents first-phase drilling on sections 2100mSE to 2600mSE and successfully delineated the HGZ across 600 metres of expanded strike length. In addition to the potential for further expansion of the HGZ, it is expected that infill drilling on these sections will continue to improve grades significantly.

One infill drill hole, BL14-617 (Section 1150mSE) is included in these results and was drilled due to increased accessibility during the winter season.

The following table shows selected drill results for the HGZ expansion drilling, No top-cut was used in calculating the gold intervals. Depths of the mineralized zone averaged approximately 480 metres depth. All drill widths approximate true width. Updated plan and section maps for all holes are also available on the Company's website at: www.probemines.com/s/Borden_Lake.asp?ReportID=569319

Dr. David Palmer, President and CEO of Probe, comments, "The Winter Program was a tremendous success in expanding the HGZ an additional 60% in strike length to over 1.6 kilometres. The recent results are still showing very thick intercepts of high-grade gold indicating the continuation of the robust gold system. In addition, the results also show the gold zone may be leveling off to the southeast and not getting deeper. This could have a positive effect on logistics and costs in any potential underground development scenario. Results to date have shown consistent improvement in grade along the entire 3.7 kilometres of strike length of the deposit, and we are very encouraged by these results which show significant potential for further improvement and expansion of the HGZ. Probe will be hard at work during 2014 advancing the project towards development."

Probe has instituted a strict quality assurance and quality control ("QA-QC") program for the Borden Gold drill core sampling, with each fire assay furnace batch of 40 samples including two certified reference materials (standards), one blank sample and one core duplicate sample. Quality control guidelines and ongoing QAQC monitoring are being carried out by Probe personnel.

You know you need the cloud, but you're hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You're looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you're concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies. What do you do?
