Multiple Quartzite Zones Drilled; Drill Intersections of Up to 60 Metres Quartzite

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwired – Feb. 25, 2016) – Fairmont Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:FMR) (“Fairmont”) is pleased to announce 12 drill holes that were completed to the end of 2015 at the Forestville Quartzite Property have all been logged. See Table 1 for details on the drillhole locations, attitudes and quartzite intersections and Map 1 for a location of the drillholes and quartzite zones. All drilling was completed by the students and staff of the Le Centre de formation professionnelle de Forestville (“Forestville CFP”) under the supervision of Magnor Exploration. Analysis has yet to be completed on these holes, and it not expected to be completed until spring. Drilling has intersected up to 60 metres of quartzite in hole FOR 15-002 at Zone D, however the true thickness of this zone is uncertain as the other two holes drilled in Zone D both ended in quartzite. The three holes completed on Zone D visually appear to be some of the cleanest quartzite encountered on the Forestville Quartzite Property to date.

Zone E was identified by in outcrops of quartzite approximately 2.3 km north of Zone D and one hole was targeted to test the quartzite at depth. No quartzite was encountered in drilling at Zone E due to less than optimal drill location.

Drilling from Zone F, a large area of newly identified quartzite, yielded encouraging intersections of quartzite. Zone F is 5 km northwest of Zone A on a continuous topographic ridge that has been mapped and interpreted to be a continuous ridge of quartzite. Four drill holes were completed at Zone F. In one area it is uncertain if drilling intersected bedrock or a massive block of quartzite that has come down as a large single block. Backhoe stripping or additional drilling is required to confirm this.

In 1996 Vogue Resources tested Zone C with one hole directly in the zone, and one in close proximity to Zone C and drilled in close proximity to Zone B.

Results from Sigeom Report GM 54975 by Vogue Resources returned intervals as high as 36.45m of 99.15% SiO2 in hole LC199601. Results from holes LC9602 and LC9603 are very encouraging as well as they appear to be well west of the main quartzite ridge seen in Zones A, B, C and F, which may indicate a parallel quartzite zone or an increased thickness in the quartzite unit.

Michael Dehn, President and CEO of Fairmont states “Having completed holes intersecting material thicknesses of quartzite in Zones A, D and F, along with the historical holes demonstrate that there is a large target of quartzite zones over many kilometres of strike length on the Forestville Quartzite Property. With additional work we expect to be able to show volumes and grades of several of the zones and hope to be able to start permitting this year.”
