Spanish Mountain Gold Ltd. ("the Company") (SPA-TSXV) is pleased to announce the results from the final group of drill holes completing the in-fill drilling program within the Main and North Zones of its Spanish Mountain Gold Project (the "Project") located in central British Columbia, Canada. The results from the in-fill drilling program are designed to provide additional information to enable a re-classification from the Inferred to Measured and Indicated categories for gold contained within the Main and North Zones of mineralization at the Project. The program was designed to also test for extensions to gold mineralization laterally and at depth. The results of the drilling conducted to date continue to confirm the continuity of potentially economic mineralization in areas presently classified as inferred resources.

Brian Groves, President and CEO said today, "With the completion of the in-fill drilling program and new geological model, the Company will now focus on integrating the forthcoming updated resource estimate in the pre-feasibility study currently underway for the Project. We are encouraged by the presence of areas of higher grade gold mineralization at depth as indicated in holes such as DDH-988."

Highlights of Drilling Results include:

MAIN ZONE HIGHLIGHTS:

  • 39.50m grading 1.09g/t gold in hole 11-DDH-965
  • 61.00m grading 0.65g/t gold in hole 11-DDH-987.
  • 70.29m grading 0.53g/t gold, a second interval of 45.50m grading 0.54g/t gold and a third interval of 39.00m grading 0.96g/t gold in hole 11-DDH-963.
  • 34.50m grading 0.82g/t gold in hole 11-DDH-974.
  • 30.00m grading 0.77g/t gold in hole 11-DDH-979.
  • 116.50m grading 0.36g/t gold and a second interval of 45.00m grading 0.42 g/t gold in hole 11-DDH-964.
  • 102.00m grading 0.33g/t gold and 9.00m grading 1.32 g/t gold (near bottom of hole) in hole 11-DDH-988.

NORTH ZONE HIGHLIGHTS:

  • 82.50m grading 0.54g/t gold in hole 11-DDH-966
  • 50.00m grading 0.62g/t gold in hole 11-DDH-968.
  • 57.50m grading 0.41g/t in hole 11-DDH-972.

Significant assay results are contained in Table 1 appended to this news release. 

Discussion of Results

The 2011 drilling program on the Main and North Zones of the Spanish Mountain gold deposit has now been completed. The program was designed primarily to provide in-fill data for an updated resource calculation. The results from new zones of mineralization that have been encountered during this program will be included in the updated model. An updated geological model has been completed and will serve as the basis for the updated resource estimate to be completed in late October. 

Drilling of additional holes is underway to provide geotechnical data that will enable the optimization of pit wall slopes for conceptual open pit designs within the ongoing Pre-feasibility study for the Project.
Judy Stoeterau, P.Geo., the Company's Vice-President of Geology and the qualified person as defined under National Instrument 43-101, has reviewed the contents of this news release. All core samples are assayed at ALS Chemex Laboratory in Vancouver, BC.
