Rad Property Exploration

November 1, 2013 Kettle River Resources Ltd. (KRR-V) announces that a geological mapping and sampling program was completed this past summer on the Company’s Rad property in the Greenwood Mining Division.

The Rad property is located approximately 13 kilometres northwest of Grand Forks, B.C. It is comprised of one MTO cell claim located on Mineral Tenure map sheet 082E.018 and is 100% owned by Kettle River and not subject to any underlying agreements. Three separate zones of skarn mineralization are known on the Rad property, the Shickshock, Ike and Black Tail/Jennie May. Skarn deposits are an important deposit type in the region. Examples include the past-producing Phoenix copper-gold skarn, 10 km southwest of the Rads property, from which over a million ounces of gold was produced, and the Buckhorn gold skarn near Chesaw, Washington, currently being mined by Kinross.

At the Shickshock showing, a shaft, several prospect pits and adits and numerous bulldozer trenches (dating from the 1970’s) expose massive magnetite (+/- pyrite, pyrrhotite, chalcopyrite) within a widespread zone of garnet-epidote-pyroxene skarn. The bulldozer trenches are now partially sloughed and overgrown.

The Ike showing is located approximately 400 metres southeast of the Shickshock showing. An old shaft and trench test a garnet skarn zone, within a large area of Brooklyn limestone. Widespread epithermal style quartz veining and silicification in limestone occur in outcrop and subcrop in the vicinity of the Ike shaft. One sample from this area (in a previous program) returned 15.4 g/t Au. The Black Tail/Jennie May skarn, in the eastern part of the property, is comprised of numerous open cuts plus 2 adits that test an area of amphibole-chlorite-epidote +/- garnet, pyroxene, magnetite skarn.

Apart from limited rock sampling, Kettle River Resources has not completed any previous work on the Rads property. None of the known zones of mineralization on the property have been tested by drilling and no modern trenching has been completed. During the 2013 program, areas of mineralization on the property were examined and 17 rock samples were collected for analysis. Samples were select grab samples from outcrop or from historic workings. All samples were shipped to SGS Minerals Services in Vancouver for preparation and analysis for Au (FAA313 method, 30 gm Fire Assay + AAS finish) plus a multi-element ICP suite (ICP40B, ICP-OES analysis following multi-acid digest).

Highlights included sample 5410 (1.3 g/t Au and 696 ppm Cu) from pyritic brecciated chert and skarn altered greenstone, with minor quartz veining northwest of the Shickshock, and samples 5415 and 5416 (1200 ppm Cu and 2530 ppm Cu, respectively) from the northern on-strike extension of the Shickshock magnetite-garnet-epidote skarn. The main Shickshock showing (bulldozer trenched area) was not resampled during the 2013 program, since these trenches are now sloughed and since results from 1974 sampling, when exposures were fresh, are available.

The best result from the 1974 sampling was 0.57% Cu, 0.234 oz/t Ag and 0.0125 oz/t Au. The depth extent of skarn mineralization on the property is unknown and detailed mapping is needed, in particular to the east and south of the Shickshock occurrence, to understand the relationship between this zone and the Ike occurrence to the south. Eocene-aged epithermal gold mineralization is also a viable exploration target on the property. Epithermal veining within limestone, with elevated gold, occurs in the vicinity of the Ike occurrence.

Further work is warranted. Linda Caron, M.Sc., P.Eng. is the Qualified Person under NI 43-101 who has reviewed and approved the

August 1, 2012   Kettle River Resources Ltd. (KRR-V) announces that, further to the company’s news release of July 9, 2012 clarifying technical disclosure regarding the company’s Phoenix tailings property, a current independent NI 43-101 technical report on the Phoenix tailings property has been completed and posted on SEDAR.

The tailings on the property are the by-product of open pit mining and milling from the historic Phoenix mine.  The Phoenix copper-gold skarn mine was operated by Granby Mining as a direct smelting operation from 1900 to 1919, then as an open pit mine with on-site flotation milling, from 1956 to 1978.  Milling operations, from which the tailings were generated, started in 1959. 

The report clarifies information regarding the historical resource on the property.  According to historical production records, from 1959 to 1967, 4.19 million tonnes of tailings, grading 0.15% Cu, 0.38 g/t Au and 3.8 g/t Ag, were discharged to the Tremblay tailings site.  From 1967 to 1976, 7.33 million tonnes of tailings with an average grade of 0.08% Cu, 0.31 g/t Au and 3.1 g/t Ag were discharged to the Twin Creek site.  In final years of the operation, when mining had ceased from the open pit but milling of stockpiled ore was ongoing, tailings were discharged into the pit.  Historical records indicate that the Phoenix Pit site contains 1.64 million tonnes of tailings grading 0.09% Cu, 0.17 g/t Au and 2.23 g/t Ag.  Some losses inevitably occurred for a variety of reasons, including a failure of the Twin Creek tailings dam in 1969, and the production records are an approximate indication only of the total tailings contained in each site.  They are historical estimates only and not NI 43-101 compliant resources.  The authors of the current technical report have not done sufficient work to classify the historical estimate as a current mineral resource or reserve and the company is not treating the historical estimate as a current mineral resource or reserve.

The report also clarifies details regarding the company’s 2011 informal study of the economically viability of a gold-only reprocessing operation at the Tremblay and Twin Creek tailings sites.  The study assumed head gold grades and tonnages indicated by historical mining records.  Historical metallurgical testwork was used for project design and recovery estimates.  The study concluded that, based on preliminary investigations, a gold recovery operation that involved regrinding and froth flotation of the Tremblay and Twin Creek tailings at a rate of 10,000 tons per day might be economically viable. This study was not based on a current inferred mineral resource, does not constitute a Preliminary Economic Assessment of the project, and should not be interpreted as such.  A market for the gold-pyrite concentrate which would be generated by a tailings reprocessing operation has not been determined.

The report has identified uncertainties regarding the head grade and recoverability of gold from the tailings and further work has been recommended to address these issues.  The Phase 1 recommended program includes systematic bulk sampling and metallurgical testing of the Tremblay and Twin Creek tailings to provide information regarding accurate head grade for different portions of the deposits, the relationship between grind size and gold recovery using froth flotation, and resulting concentrate characteristics.  Phase 2 is contingent on the successful outcome of Phase 1, and includes a full Preliminary Economic Assessment of the project, plus initiating environmental baseline studies needed for future permitting.  A current inferred resource estimate is required before the project can proceed to a PEA, and is included as part of the Phase 2 recommendations.

Clarification of Phoenix Tailing Reserves

July 8, 2012

Kettle River Resources Ltd. (KRR-V) announces that, as a result of a review by the British Columbia Securities Commission, the Company is issuing the following news release to clarify technical disclosure related to the company’s Phoenix tailings property. 

In a news release dated August 5, 2010, the company disclosed a resource estimate for the Phoenix tailings.  This information was also disclosed on the company’s website.  The Company is hereby stating that the tailings resource estimate is contrary to NI 43-101 and is unsupported by a compliant NI 43-101 report.  It has not been independently verified and should not be relied upon.

The Company has engaged an independent consultant to prepare a current NI 43-101 report on the Phoenix tailings and will file this report on SEDAR as soon as it is available.  A separate NI 43-101 report is also being prepared to update technical information regarding the company’s other Greenwood area properties, which will also be filed on SEDAR once available.  

Furthermore, the Company has initiated a complete review of its website, to ensure that all aspects of the site fully comply with NI 43-101 and with the principles of factual, balanced and complete disclosure.  Until this review has been completed and the website is updated and compliant, the company has suspended the website.

Peregrine Diamonds Ltd. ("Peregrine" or “the Company”) (TSX:PGD) is pleased to report that it has discovered two
kimberlites in the Lac de Gras region, Northwest Territories, Canada. The kimberlites, named LD-1 and LD-2, were
discovered when the first two land-based geophysical targets scheduled for core drilling were drilled earlier this month.
Lac de Gras, home to the EKATI and Diavik diamond mines, is one of the most prolific diamond districts in the world since
kimberlite was first discovered there in 1991.

The core drill is now being moved to the third of five total targets between one and two hectares in size that are scheduled
to be drilled before the program is completed in May, subject to weather and the onset of the spring snow melt.

The LD-1 kimberlite is located approximately 12 kilometres west of the Diavik Diamond Mine, and 40 kilometres northwest
of Peregrine’s 71.9%-owned, nine hectare DO-27 kimberlite, which currently has an 18.2 million carat resource that is
open for expansion. LD-1 was discovered when a magnetic low anomaly with a surface expression of approximately one
hectare was tested by core drilling. A core hole drilled at an inclination of 50 degrees from horizontal intersected
kimberlite from 76 to 168.5 metres. LD-1 is a texturally variable crater-facies volcaniclastic kimberlite that contains
chrome diopside, garnet and coarse olivine.

The LD-2 kimberlite is located 2.5 kilometres west of the DO-27 kimberlite. LD-2 was discovered when a magnetic high
anomaly with a surface expression of approximately one hectare was tested by core drilling. Angle holes were drilled into
the kimberlite at inclinations of 45 and 60 degrees from horizontal from the same setup, intersecting kimberlite from 14 to
74 metres and from 20 to 110 metres, respectively. LD-2 is a black, resedimented volcaniclastic kimberlite with about 5%
country rock xenoliths and containing coarse olivine and garnet.

Mr. Eric Friedland, CEO of Peregrine, said “Peregrine’s new discovery of kimberlites in Lac de Gras, a diamond district
that has seen some of the most intensive diamond exploration in the world over the last 20 years, is especially gratifying
and demonstrates again that we have one of the best diamond exploration teams ever assembled. Peregrine’s team has
also discovered two new diamond districts in Canada since 2007, Chidliak and Nanuq, both in Nunavut, a remarkable
achievement given the challenges of diamond exploration, especially in Canada’s Arctic. I anticipate that our team will
make additional kimberlite discoveries as we continue our program at Lac de Gras over the next month and undertake our
focussed 2012 exploration and pre-bulk sample drill programs at our advanced Chidliak diamond project on Baffin Island.”
Samples from the LD-1 and LD-2 kimberlites will be sent to the Saskatchewan Research Council Analytical Laboratories
for microdiamond testing by caustic fusion with results anticipated in the third quarter.

In addition to the 51,000 hectares of claims 100%-owned by Peregrine, the Company’s mineral interests in the Lac de
Gras district also consist of 32,200 hectares of claims in joint venture with Thelon Capital Ltd. (66.2% Peregrine, 33.8%
Thelon) where the LD-1 discovery was made and the 14,000 hectare WO Joint Venture. The WO Joint Venture (Peregrine
71.9%, Archon Minerals Ltd. 17.5% and DHK Diamonds Inc. 10.6% (Dentonia Resources Ltd. 43.37%, Kettle River
Resources Ltd 43.37% and Cosigo Resources Ltd 13.26%)) is where the LD-2 discovery was made. Peregrine holds
97.92% of diamond marketing rights for the WO Joint Venture. The DO-27 kimberlite is located within the WO Joint

Mr. Peter Holmes, P. Geo., Peregrine’s Exploration Manager, is a Qualified Person under NI 43-101 and is responsible for
the design and conduct of the exploration programs carried out by the Company on the Lac de Gras project. Mr. Holmes
has reviewed this release and approves of its contents.

About Peregrine Diamonds Ltd.

Golden Dawn Wildrose-TamO'Shanter Drill Results

2011-01-24 12:17 ET - News Release

Mr. Wolf Wiese reports


Golden Dawn Minerals Inc. has released excellent results from three additional diamond drill holes in the continuing drill program on the Wild Rose-Tam O'Shanter properties in the Greenwood mining district. Previously announced holes 10WR01 to 10WR03 were drilled at the Wild Rose property targeting the Wild Rose and Wild Cat vein zones, and were reported upon in a Golden Dawn news release in Stockwatch dated Jan. 12, 2011. As reported here, holes 10WR04 and 10WR05 are step-out drill holes that have targeted the northwest strike extent of the Wild Rose and Wild Cat vein zones as well as the wide, low-grade, bulk-tonnage gold-copper zone known as the Deadwood zone along strike to the northwest. Drill hole 10WR06 was drilled approximately 400 metres northwest of hole 10WR05 and the Wild Rose/Wild Cat vein zones, and targeted the Deadwood zone.

Holes 10WR04 and 10WR05 intersected narrow semi-massive sulphide and quartz vein zones that are likely the extension of the Wild Rose veins system and yielded grades of up to 5.38 grams per tonne (g/t) gold (Au) across 1.1 m core length (in hole 10WR04) and 1.85 g/t Au across 1.87 m core length (in hole 10WR05). Both holes were drilled northwest of any known mineralization associated with the Wild Rose and Wild Cat vein systems extending the Wild Rose vein system at least 40 m to the northwest. In addition to the higher-grade vein zones intersected in these two holes, both holes intersected wide low-grade mineralization with up to 0.32 g/t Au across 31.29 m core length (in hole 10WR04) that is likely part of the bulk-tonnage target Deadwood zone which is approximately 400 m along strike to the northwest. Summary results from holes 10WR04 and 10WR05 are presented in the attached table.

Hole 10WR06 has extended the known gold-copper mineralization associated with the Deadwood zone reported from historical drilling in the area and has confirmed the widespread nature of the mineralization as well as extending the higher-grade zone reported in historical hole 92-27 drilled in 1992. The intersection in 10WR06 lies within a target zone, the Deadwood zone, of about 200 metres in width and exceeding 2,000 metres in length. Mineralization in the latest hole, 10WR06, is predominantly hosted in an altered and brecciated diorite along with hornfelsed sediments and extends from the surface to a total depth of the hole at 182.88 m core length. Altered diorite with sulphide mineralization yields up to 0.19 g/t Au and 0.02 per cent copper (Cu) across 162.33 m core length in what appears to be porphyry-style Au-Cu mineralization. The main Deadwood zone yields up to 0.39 g/t Au and 0.04 per cent Cu across 55.7 m core length. The summary results for 10WR06 are also presented in the attached table. The summary results for the historical drill hole 92-27 are included for comparison.

Hole 10WR-06 was drilled approximately 40 m along strike to the northwest of historical hole 92-27, and confirms the presence and continuity of the bulk-tonnage Au-Cu Deadwood zone. The expanded drilling program, due to commence late January, is expected to continue testing this substantial zone.

 It is most encouraging that drilling to date on the program has encountered significant gold-copper mineralization of widespread low-grade nature along with higher-grade vein material within the lower-grade halos. The reader is referred to the company's website for a PowerPoint and video presentation illustrating the historical drilling and the target zone for current drilling activity.

Phase 1 of the 16-hole program is expected to continue with the drilling of an additional 10 holes within next few days. The reader is cautioned that historical drilling results are being confirmed by current drilling, and such historical results cannot be relied upon until reconfirmed. There are no known mineral resources on the property, and there can be no assurance that any mineral resources will be discovered on the property , and if discovered, there is no assurance that any mineralization may be economically extracted.
