Gold Potential of South Area of Chimo Mine Property

Val-d’Or, September 23, 2014 – Cartier Resources Inc. (TSX-V: ECR) (“Cartier”) presents the gold potential in the South Area of the Chimo Gold Mine, that is presently closed.  The Chimo Mine proprerty is situated at the south-eastern extremity of the Val-d’Or Mining Camp in Quebec.  The compilation and interpretation of the historical data(1)indicates :  i) two new gold-bearing zones, ii) the presence of several gold mineralized zones and iii) that several characteristics of the Central Area are found in the South Area.

Drilling results below un-mined zones have reported economic type intersections such as :  15.5 g/t Au over 3.3 m (Zone 6) and 11.2 g/t Au over 3.5 m (Zone 6B).  The two new gold zones outlined by drilling reported intersections such as;  6.0 g/t Au over 13.0 m (Zone 6N1) and 7.5 g/t Au over 5.2 m (Zone 6P2).  The discovery of Zone 6 was done in 1986.  However, follow-up drilling and mining was delayed to 1995, just two years prior to mine closure.  To this day there has been little exploration drilling in this area.  The potential of the area is indicated by the presence of several characteristics seen in the Central Area gold mineralized zones (smoky quartz, free gold, graphite and structural setting).

« This area’s gold exploration and resource potential is similar to that of the Central Area » commented Philippe Cloutier, President and CEO, adding « the success of future work in this area could stem from drilling the direct extensions of the unmined gold zones as well as exploring the new gold zones and targets discovered along the prospective structures ».

The recent news releases on the Chimo Mine property presented the highlights of a yearlong compilation and interpretation of data.  This information will be used outline the overall potential and various alternatives to advance the project.
