Mandalay Resources Corporation Announces Update on Youle Vein Drilling Program at Costerfield Mine, Australia


TORONTO, June 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mandalay Resources Corporation ("Mandalay" or the "Company") (TSX:MND) (OTCQB:MNDJF) is pleased to provide an exploration update from recent diamond drilling on the emerging Youle vein at its Costerfield operation in Victoria, Australia.

The most recent drilling results from the Youle vein since Mandalay's press release of April 3, 2018 further demonstrate that mineralization of the vein system remains continuous at depth. The currently known strike of Youle extends 600 m and has a vertical depth of 150 m.

Highlights from the recent Youle drilling include the following intercepts:

  • BC020: 0.27m @ 165.1 g/t Au and 20.7% Sb (30.2 g/t AuEq @ 1.8m mining width)
  • BC023: 0.16m @ 551.0 g/t Au and 25.6% Sb (54.3 g/t AuEq @ 1.8m mining width)
  • BC023W1: 0.38m @ 148.7 g/t Au and 8.8% Sb (34.2g/t AuEq @ 1.8m mining width)
  • BC031: 0.41m @ 108.1 g/t Au and 22.4% Sb (33.5 g/t AuEq @ 1.8m mining width)

Dominic Duffy, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mandalay commented, "The Youle discovery is extremely exciting for Mandalay, as our drilling campaign continues to demonstrate consistent, high-grade results that share a similar structural setting to the previously mined Augusta and Cuffley Lodes. Mandalay's current infill drilling program and related studies are being undertaken with the intention of delivering Mineral Reserve additions from Youle in our 2018 year-end Mineral Resources and Reserves update. The high grades, along with the fact that the Youle vein is in relatively close proximity to where we are currently mining, provides good potential for it to be the next viable ore source for Mandalay at Costerfield."

Mr. Duffy concluded, "The Youle discovery has the strong potential to continue Mandalay's trend of continuous Mineral Reserve replacement at Costerfield over the past eight years and demonstrates the remarkable prospectivity of the district. Mandalay will be looking to increase its brownfields exploration spending in 2019 with the aim of making further discoveries."

Infill drilling over the next six months is aimed at demonstrating the economic potential of the central portion of Youle, by drilling at hole spacing of approximately 40 m. The Company also expects to carry out extension drilling along strike and at depth with the goal of extending mineralization to a depth of 700 RL. This program is expected to comprise 37 holes.

Youle Drill Campaign History

Mandalay has drilled 39 diamond holes into the historic Costerfield mine area in three campaigns (2011, 2014 and 2017-present). The Company reported significant early results from the Youle drill program in July 2017 (see Mandalay July 24, 2017 press release) and in April 2018 (see Mandalay April 3, 2018 press release). Drilling was accelerated in late 2017. This program has continued over 2018 and Mandalay is accelerating its efforts to bring Youle into Mineral Reserves in the Company's year-end 2018 Mineral Reserves and Resources update.

Drilling and Assaying

Diamond drill core was logged and sampled by Costerfield geologists. All samples were sent to Onsite Laboratory in Bendigo, Victoria, Australia, for sample preparation and assay. Site geological and metallurgical personnel have implemented a QA/QC process that includes the regular submission of standard reference materials and blanks with drill and face samples submitted for assay. Standard reference materials have been certified by Geostats Pty Ltd. (see March 29, 2018, Technical Report entitled "Costerfield Operation, Victoria, Australia NI 43-101 Report", available on SEDAR ( and the Company's website (, which contains a complete description of drilling, sampling, and assaying procedures.)

Qualified Person:

Chris Gregory, Vice President of Operational Geology and Exploration at Mandalay Resources, is a Member of the Australian Institute of Geoscientists (AIG), and a Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101. He has reviewed and approved the technical and scientific information provided in this release.
