Integra Mobilizes Three Diamond Drill Rigs for Summer Program at Lamaque

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - July 09, 2014) - Integra Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE: ICG) ("Integra" or the "Company") is pleased to announce its 2014 drill program has resumed after a seven week hiatus following the extensive 28,500 meter ("m") winter program drilled in the first four months of the year. Three diamond drill rigs are now on site at the Company's Lamaque Gold Project in Val-d'Or, Québec with approximately 20,000 additional meters of drilling to be completed this year.

One rig has commenced drilling at the Fortune Zone and will focus on completing the definition drill program initiated during the winter. Year to date, approximately 3,200 m in 14 holes have been completed at the Fortune Zone with assay results pending. An additional 3,000 m is planned for the Fortune Zone this summer.

The second diamond drill rig is conducting a condemnation program over the planned infrastructure sites (ramp, ore/waste stockpiles, offices, etc.) selected for the development of the Triangle Zone. The program will consist of 1,200 m in 10 holes with all drill holes located between 200 m and 800 m west of the Triangle Zone deposit. Once the condemnation drilling is completed the same rig will be used to test a number of high priority geophysical targets in proximity to the Triangle Zone and No. 4 Plug. Details for this program will be disclosed in the near future.

The third rig is being used to complete the cementing program that was initiated last winter. The cementation of drill holes is necessary to prevent water from draining into underground structures, threatening ground stability and personnel safety during underground operations.

Apart from the cementing rig which should complete its work by end of August, the Company anticipates having a minimum of two diamond drill rigs operating on the property for the balance of the year. The Company may increase the number of drills operating on the property to complete a drill program or accommodate additional drilling as dictated by exploration. An additional 15,000 meters of drilling is planned for the balance of the year on a number of significant, untested exploration targets. This drilling will commence once the above mentioned programs have been completed.

"These programs are yet another example of the Company's commitment to advancing the Lamaque Gold Project rapidly towards development. Our objective is to be Québec's next gold mine and to meet that goal it is imperative that the Company initiates certain de-risking initiatives, such as condemnation, definition drilling and cementing," commented Integra President and CEO Stephen de Jong. "Drill programs for the remainder of 2014 will both help advance the project and provide a strong news flow as we continue to test new targets along strike of existing deposits."

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 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.

Qualified Persons

The Lamaque exploration project is under the direct supervision of Hervé Thiboutot, Eng. and Senior Vice-President of the company, and Francois Chabot, Eng. and Operations and Engineering Manager of the Company, both Qualified Person ("QP") as defined by National Instrument 43-101, and Alain-Jean Beauregard, P.Geo., Daniel Gaudreault, Eng., Geo. of Géologica Inc., both independent QP as defined by National Instrument 43-101.
