Puma Exploration reached a depth of 1,290 meters with its hole FND13-02 and begins a third hole at Nicholas-Denys Project, New Brunswick


Rimouski, August 12, 2013 – Puma Exploration (PUM-TSXV) reports progress on drilling operation at Nicholas-Denys Property. Drill hole FND13-02 was drilled to 1,290 meters to test a surface soil Cu-Mo anomalies and an high mag geophysical anomaly at depth. Visual alteration and mineralization was encountered trough the entire hole with more intense fracturation and sulphide veinlets from surface to 100m and then from 300m to 850 meters.

Following the second hole, Puma decided to increase its planned drilling program to include two more drill holes in the vinicity of hole FND13-02. Hole FND13-03 is collared at the same location than hole FND13-02 but in north-west direction to define the fracturation patern in the center of the low mag area of the porphyry. The fourth hole is designed as a step out hole 200 meters north of hole FND13-02. (see map attached)

1,542 samples were collected over the entire hole FND13-02 and are being analysed for base, precious and speciality metals. Alteration study is also in progress to qualify and quantify the alteration encountered through the entire hole and from previous puma’s holes. Following the drilling operation, borehole geophysical survey will be conducted in the six deep holes drilled in the pluton since 2012.
