News releases 2014



Rouyn-Noranda, Québec, Canada – December 1, 2014 – Visible Gold Mines Inc. (TSXV: VGD) (Frankfurt: 3V4) is pleased to announce the completion of its previously-announced of detailed helicopter-borne magnetic (MAG) and time-domain electromagnetic (TDEM) Survey on its 167 EXTENSION project in the Plan Nord region in the province of Québec. The survey began on November 13th and was completed recently.

The MAG-TDEM geophysical survey consisted of a data acquisition program for a total of 3,955 linear kilometres on two different survey block at 100 metre line spacing, see map at Joël Dubé, Eng., consultant specialized in geophysics, will generate anomaly picking and interpretation maps.  Those products will be key in providing prospective guidance on potential diamond drilling targets.

Most of the high grade boulders we have found are highly magnetics and conductives. With the preliminary data we have received to date, we are able to define in many areas the correlation between conductivity, high magnetism, and high grade boulders’ location. We are very anxious to bring the drilrig on site. "We believe this is a very promising project" stated Martin Dallaire, President and Chief Executive Officer of Visible Gold Mines.

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 mining claims on more than 110 kilometres of that new road. The road has been completed since October 1st, 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 approximately 54,734 hectares or 547 square kilometres.
