— 50% of survey already completed
Rouyn-Noranda, Québec, Canada – November 19, 2014 – Visible Gold Mines Inc. (TSXV: VGD) (Frankfurt: 3V4) is pleased to announce it has contracted Prospectair Geosurveys Inc. (“Prospectair”) of Gatineau, Québec for a detailed helicopter-borne magnetic (MAG) and time-domain electromagnetic (TDEM) survey of its 100% owned 167 EXTENSION project in the region of the Plan Nord in the province of Québec. The survey began on November 13, 2014 and so far approximately 1,977 linear kilometres, representing 50% of the survey, have been covered by Prospectair.  The entire survey is expected to be completed before the end of the month of November.
The MAG-TDEM geophysical survey will consist of a data acquisition program over a total of 3,955 linear kilometres on two different survey blocks at 100 metre line spacing, see map at .

Upon completion of the heliborne survey, Joël Dubé, Eng., a consultant specialized in geophysics, will generate anomaly-picking and interpretation maps.  These products will be key in providing prospective guidance on potential diamond drilling targets. A preliminary map will be available soon after the survey is completed and final maps, data and report are expected within two weeks of completion of the data acquisition.

A Eurocopter EC120B aircraft equipped with the lightweight ProspecTEM system and a Geometrics magnetometer will be used to carry out the survey.  This cost-effective geophysical configuration is well adapted for reconnaissance surveys with the objective of delineating conductors to a depth of about 150 metres while maintaining excellent spatial resolution.  Detailed heliborne MAG-TDEM surveying technology offers excellent penetration results for detecting discrete conductive anomalies as well as mapping lateral and vertical variations in resistivity at depth.  Given the conductive and magnetic nature of the angular mineralized boulders found by Visible Gold Mines along Road 167, the MAG-TDEM heliborne technology offers an adapted data combination, thus maximizing chances to discover the sub-outcropping sources of these boulders.

In addition to the results previously announced in its press release dated November 11, 2014, Visible Gold Mines is pleased to announce additional results from five boulders found in the area of KM150 of its 167 EXTENSION project.  See Visible Gold Mines’ website for an interactive map and pictures of the 167 EXTENSION project at

The following table is outlining the additional results of five boulders found at KM150:

Following the receipt of all sample results and of the MAG-TDEM geophysical survey, the Visible Gold Mines geological team will review the results and establish an exploration program in order to define the bedrock sources of these mineralized boulders. A batch of 16 new mineralized boulders were sent to Techni-Lab Laboratories on November 7, 2014 and results from these boulders will be released as they become available.

About Plan Nord 167 EXTENSION project

In 2011, when the Québec Government launched its ambitious Plan Nord project to develop Québec’s north, including the construction of a 243 kilometre-long all-season road that links Stornoway’s Renard Diamond project to the provincial highway network, Visible Gold Mines’ management decided to acquire the available mining rights along each side of the new road in order to have access to new outcrops and strippings generated by the road construction. Visible Gold Mines acquired claims by acquisition and staking and so the 167 EXTENSION project was born. Out of the 140 kilometres of new road available for mining exploration (the first 102 kilometres are a planned provincial park), Visible Gold Mines owns more than 110 kilometres. The road has been completed since October 1, 2014 at a construction cost of approximately $350 million dollars. The 167 EXTENSION project is 100% owned by Visible Gold Mines and represents with recent acquisitions up to 54,734 hectares or 547 square kilometres.

About Visible Gold Mines

Visible Gold Mines Inc. is a dynamic corporation aggressively searching for the next important gold deposit in the province of Québec, an area consistently ranked as one of the world’s best jurisdictions for mining and exploration.
