Mandalay Resources Drills Multiple High-Grade Intercepts Beneath Historic Costerfield Mine, Victoria, Australia


TORONTO, April 03, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mandalay Resources Corporation ("Mandalay" or the "Company") (TSX:MND) is pleased to provide results from recent diamond drilling at its Costerfield Operations in Victoria, Australia.

This press release refers to tables and figures. The accompanying Table 2 can be found at the end of this press release, whereas the accompanying Figures 1, 2 and 3 can be found in an exploration presentation posted on the Company's website at the following address:

Mandalay's recent and ongoing exploration drilling campaign on the property targets projections of veins beneath the historic Kendall and Costerfield mine, which was the largest historical producer in the district from 1864 to 1938 (Figure 1). Resulting intercepts demonstrate gold-antimony mineralization along a strike length of approximately 600 m and a dip length of approximately 200 m (Figures 2 and 3).

Highlights from drilling include the following six intercepts, which delineate a high-grade core of mineralization along the Costerfield Deeps projection measuring approximately 400 in strike by 150 m down-dip. The Company has named this emerging shoot the Youle vein after one of the three original prospectors in the district.

Mark Sander, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mandalay commented, "We are encouraged by the high-grade cluster of drill intercepts defining the core of the emerging Youle vein beneath the historic Costerfield mine. This setting is similar to the locations of the Augusta Lodes, the Cuffley Lode and the Brunswick Lode beneath other historic mines of the district, all of which Mandalay has converted to Mineral Reserves and has either mined or is preparing to mine.

"The drill hole intercepts of Youle reported in this press release contain some extraordinary gold and antimony grades that dilute to potentially minable gold equivalent grades over our minimum mining width of 1.8 m. As well, the strike length (400-600 m) and depth extent (150-200 m) of the intercepts are entirely consistent with the dimensions of orebodies we have found beneath the other historic mines in the district that have proved very profitable for Mandalay."   

Mr. Sander concluded, "There is room to grow this discovery along strike and down dip. The fact that Youle lies just several hundred metres to one kilometre from the Brunswick Lode, to which capital development access will be created later this quarter, suggests that there is potential to access the shoot quickly and for limited development capital. We plan to add additional surface rigs to the Youle drilling program to expand and infill high-grade mineralization as quickly as possible, with the goal of adding significantly to the Company's Mineral Resources and Reserves by the end of 2018."

Youle Drill Campaign History

Mandalay has drilled 27 diamond holes into the historic Costerfield mine area in three campaigns (2011, 2014 and 2017-2018). The Company reported significant early results from the Youle drill program in July, 2017 (see Mandalay July 24, 2017, press release).  Drilling accelerated in late 2017 after it was clear that Mandalay would commit to developing the Brunswick Lode, which will halve the distance to access Youle from then-limits of mining at Cuffley, and after significant advances were made in the understanding of the local mineralization. This program continued into 2018 with new results reported here leading to preliminary interpretation of Youle mineralization as a downward offset of the historically mined Costerfield Lode (Figures 2 and 3).

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 (, which contains a complete description of drilling, sampling, and assaying procedures.)

Jumio Introduces Liveness Detection for Web to Better Deter Fraud During Account Onboarding19.7.2018 14:00Pressmeddelande

New identity proofing functionality ensures that the person behind a Web upload verification is present and the person actually creating a new online account PALO ALTO, Calif., July 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jumio, the creator of Netverify(TM) Trusted Identity as a Service (TIaaS), today announced the addition of Liveness Detection for Web to better thwart fraudsters' evolving and sophisticated attempts to assume another individual's identity. With identity verification, Jumio's approach is to first verify the government-issued ID (e.g., driver's license, passport or ID card) and ensure that it is authentic and has not been doctored. For mobile SDK customers, Jumio then requires the user to take a selfie which enables the company to compare the person in the selfie to the person pictured in the ID document. Since Netverify is an omnichannel solution, Jumio also supports identity verification via desktop webcams. This channel enables our customers to reach large market segments who a
