VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwired – Sept. 4, 2013) – Falco Pacific Resource Group Inc. (“Falco” or the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE:FPC) is pleased to announce that it has identified several high-grade gold mineralized zones which are open to depth and along strike proximal to the Company’s former producing Quesabe gold deposit in the Flavrian Gold District, Rouyn-Noranda camp, Quebec. Compilation of over 50 years of exploration data in the Quesabe area has led to the generation of a 3D model for gold mineralization along two major trends in the Quesabe area that intersect in the vicinity of the Quesabe deposit. Several drill ready targets have been identified, including potential high-grade extensions of the Quesabe main deposit. The Company is preparing a drill plan to test a number of these targets.

Falco controls over 80% of the Flavrian Gold District, which includes the recently announced Beauchastel option (see NR13-08, Aug. 15/2013). The District hosts a number of former producing, high-grade gold deposits including the Beauchemin (1,714,317 tons at 4.82 g/t gold), Elder (2,024,425 tons at 5.33 g/t gold), Silidor (2,959,091 tons at 5.08 g/t gold) and Quesabe deposits. Between 1949 and 1952 Falco’s Quesabe deposit produced 90,000 tons at an average grade of 10 g/t gold making it the highest grade former producer in the District. In 1995, prior to the implementation of NI43-101 Cambior reported a remnant resource at Quesabe of 450,000 tons at an average gold grade of 7 g/t in two lenses. A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify this historical estimate as a current mineral resource and the issuer is not treating the historical estimate as current mineral resource.

Model Details

Falco’s recently completed compilation has allowed for generation of a 3D model (video link) to guide future exploration in the Quesabe area. Eight distinct gold zones were identified and new mineralized envelopes rendered based on 285 historical diamond drill holes (including 80 underground holes) and over 7,000 assays.

A longitudinal section looking north along the Quesabe fault mineralized corridor (Fig. 1),  illustrates central steeply dipping gold zones, including the Quesabe deposit, straddled by shallow dipping zones to the west and east. The majority of historical drilling has been limited to depths of less than 250 m from surface. With the recent acquisition of the Beauchastel Property, the Company now controls over 5 km of the Quesabe and 2 km of the Beauchemin mineralized fault systems.

Some significant historic drill results are presented in the table below.

Drillhole Significant Intersection Operator
QB-21 3.9 g/t Au over 2.9 m Quesabe Mines Ltd. 1946
QB-28 6.6 g/t Au over 1.5 m Quesabe Mines Ltd. 1946
QB-48-34 20.3 g/t Au over 3.6 m Quesabe Mines Ltd. 1948
SU-81-40 5.8 g/t Au over 7.9 m Sunburst Exploration 1981
SU-81-5 10.3 g/t Au over 4.7 m Sunburst Exploration 1981

All reported intercepts are drill intervals as insufficient data has been collected to determine true thicknesses at this time.

Dr. Michael Byron, Vice President Exploration, (P.Geo.) is the qualified person for this release as defined by NI 43-101 and has reviewed and verified the technical information contained herein.

Investors are advised that no assessment of the potential for profitable extraction of the above tonnages has been made. A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify any of the historical estimates as current mineral resources or mineral reserves as defined by NI43-101. The Company is not treating the historical estimates as current mineral resources or reserves as defined by NI43-101. Further compilation of the historic geological and drilling data, resource modeling and confirmation drilling will be necessary to convert the historic estimates outlined above to NI43-101 resources/reserves.
