Cartier Discovers Extension of Pusticamica Deposit at Depth

Val-d’Or, April 15th, 2014 – Cartier Resources Inc. (TSX-V: ECR) (“Cartier”) announces recent results from its 2014 winter diamond drill program (Table below) which when factored with the 10.3 g/t Au over 5.0 m intersection included within an interval grading 2.4 g/t Au over 53.0 m in hole Pu-14-09 (February 27th, 2014 press release) confirm the extension of the gold-bearing system down to a depth of 650 m below the Pusticamica deposit  All of the diamond drill holes completed in the winter 2014 program intersected the gold-bearing Pusticamica zone and show characteristics (mineralisation, alteration and texture) typically observed in important mineralised systems.

“The continuity of the gold-bearing Pusticamica system at depth factored with the potential for increasing the historical resource warranted the acquisition of the Murgor royalty as announced last week and testifies to the confidence we have in the future potential for the Benoist project” ,concludesPhilippe Cloutier, President and CEO.

The Benoist property is 65 km northeast of the town of Lebel-sur-Quévillon, 25 km south-east of the Bachelor mine and 25 km north-west of the Langlois mine.
