Donner Metals Ltd.: Valmond Project Update

MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 05/22/14 -- Donner Metals Ltd. ("Donner" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:DON)(FRANKFURT:D4M), provides an update on recent exploration activities on the Valmond gold property (the "Property"). The Property is located about 50 kilometres west of Matagami, Quebec. The Property comprises 111 claims covering a surface area of about 62 square kilometres. It covers a segment of more than 15 kilometres along the gold-bearing Bapst Fault. An option agreement was concluded with Midland Exploration Inc. ("Midland") in November 2013 for the Property. Donner may earn a 50% interest in the Property in consideration of exploration expenditures totalling $2,500,000, including a firm commitment of $300,000 during the first year of the agreement, and cash payments totalling $250,000 over a period of four years. Midland will be the project operator for the duration of this option agreement.

In December 2013, a geophysical program including a helicopter-borne VTEM survey totalling 900 line kilometres and an induced polarization (IP) survey totalling 48.1 kilometres was completed. As a result, several new drilling targets were identified and proposed for drill-testing. A drilling campaign totalling 1,450.2 metres was completed in March 2014. A total of five (5) holes were drilled and three (3) others were abandoned. Two holes were abandoned due to the thick overburden composed of esker sand and gravel, and another drill hole was cancelled due to the lack of water near the drill site. Best results were obtained in drill hole VAL-14-02, which targeted the down-plunge extension of the main showing at about 350 metres vertical depth. This hole was drilled to a total depth of 543.0 metres and intersected altered intermediate tuffs with quartz veinlets and arsenopyrite stringers between 454.50 and 517.65 metres, which yielded several anomalous gold values including 0.46 g/t Au over 0.60 metre (454.50 to 455.10 metres), 0.74 g/t Au over 0.64 metre (487.80 to 488.44 metres), 0.15 g/t Au over 1.00 metre (493.00 to 494.00 metres), 0.44 g/t Au over 0.85 metre (508.00 to 508.85 metres), and 0.10 g/t Au over 0.50 metre (517.15 to 517.65 metres). Two graphitic mineralized (locally up to 80% pyrite) mudstone thick horizons intersected higher up in the hole returned several gold anomalous sections including intervals that graded 0.30 g/t Au over 2.87 metres 0.40 g/t Au over 1.0 metre and 0.41 g/t Au over 0.29 metre. Several IP and VTEM anomalies well located laterally at a distance ranging from 2.0 to 2.5 kilometres that were not tested during this campaign remain priority targets and subsequent drill-testing is recommended.
