Goldeye Updates Progress at Weebigee; Announces Partial Completion and Extension of a Private Placement

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/09/14 -- Goldeye Explorations Limited (TSX VENTURE:GGY) ("Goldeye" or "the Company") is pleased to provide an update on progress at its Weebigee Project, located near Sandy Lake, 227 kilometres north of Red Lake, Ontario. During February and March 2014, Goldeye completed its planned phase 1 drill program at Weebigee. Twenty-three holes were drilled in the NW Arm area for a total of 2,219 m. The program confirmed the presence of significant gold mineralization at the Knoll, Bernadette and RvG4 Zones. Highlights included: 12.86 g/t Au over 6.85 metres core length in hole BK-14-03 (Bernadette), 12.45 g/t Au over 3.5 metres core length in hole BK-14-05 (Knoll), and 23.15 g/t Au over 3.97 metres core length in hole BK-14-18 (RvG4). Visible gold was noted in 50% of the drill holes.

On April 9, 2014, Blaine Webster, President and CEO of Goldeye, stated, "We continue to intersect significant gold values on all three showings we have explored to date. Knoll will be our priority going forward due to the continuity we are seeing; however, the higher grade hits we are getting at RvG4 and Bernadette are compelling."

Goldeye is currently preparing for the resumption of exploration activities at Weebigee, which will begin later this month. Additional analysis of existing drill core has begun, including lithogeochemistry and multielement assaying. Silver, tungsten and antimony were noted in historic work, and validated by 2013 channel sampling (151 g/t Ag, 0.015% WO3, 0.033% Sb). The summer/fall program will focus on expanding the Knoll Zone in all directions and Goldeye intends an additional 3,000 metres of drilling. Surface geophysics and geochemistry will be conducted at Knoll, RvG4 and Bernadette in the form of orientation studies, to develop a broad set of tools that can be used to detect mineralization through the relatively thin (3 to 10 metres), but pervasive, clay layer that blankets the area. A program of prospecting, stripping and mapping will be carried out at other gold showings in the NW Arm. The summer/fall exploration program will finalize a drill plan and pave the way for a 10,000 metre drill program in winter 2014/15.

Goldeye is also pleased to report the partial completion of a private placement announced on April 28, 2014 of flow-through shares at $0.10 per share or non-flow-through units at $0.10 per unit. Each unit consists of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant entitles the holder to purchase one non-flow-through common share at a price of $0.18 for a period of 24 months from the date of issue, subject to possible acceleration if the trading price exceeds $0.30 for 14 consecutive trading days. To date, this partially brokered financing has resulted in gross proceeds of $285,000 from the sale of 2,350,000 flow-through shares and 500,000 non-flow-through units.

Subject to acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange, Goldeye will extend the closing of the private placement to July 4, 2014.

Goldeye has paid a total of $18,550 in commissions in connection with this initial closing. All of the securities will be subject to a four month hold period. The proceeds of the flow-through financing will be used to incur mineral exploration on Goldeye's Weebigee Project qualifying as Canadian Exploration Expense (CEE) under the Income Tax Act (Canada), enabling the subscriber to obtain applicable tax credits and deductions. The proceeds of the non-flow-through financing will be used to pay commissions and costs of the private placements and for general administrative expenses, overhead, and working capital.

Blaine Webster states, "While markets remain challenging, the high-grade gold potential of Weebigee and Goldeye's strong relationship with Sandy Lake First Nation make for a very compelling project. We believe that Weebigee could be the next significant gold project in Northwestern Ontario. Our plan is to build shareholder value by working closely with Sandy Lake First Nation and maintaining our focus of building this asset step by step."

The Company's management information circular filed on SEDAR on June 2, 2014 was incomplete and an amended version is being filed and mailed to those shareholders who were sent the original circular.

The contents of this news release have been reviewed and approved by David Jamieson, P.Geo., Sr. Technical Advisor for Goldeye, and Blaine Webster, President and CEO of Goldeye, both of whom are qualified persons as defined in NI 43-101.

On behalf of the Board of Directors,

Blaine Webster, P.Geo., President and CEO

In the rush to compete in the digital age, a successful digital transformation is essential, but many organizations are setting themselves up for failure. There’s a common misconception that the process is just about technology, but it’s not. It’s about your business. It shouldn’t be treated as an isolated IT project; it should be driven by business needs with the committed involvement of a range of stakeholders.
In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT. To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace.
