About Probe Mines
Probe Mines Limited is a base and precious metal exploration company with a portfolio of highly prospective mineral properties. Probe Mines recently announced commencement of a second phase diamond drill on its two new gold zones discovered in November at the Bristol Township Gold Project in Timmins Ontario. The two zones, which represent new and significant discoveries in the Timmins Camp, comprise an 11m intersection averaging 1.9g/t Au, including five sample s (5m) ranging between 2.71 and 4.15 g/t Au; and a six-meter intersection grading 2.4 g/t Au, with three samples containing between 5 and 6g/t Au (see Press Release of December 1, 2004). The gold zones lie less than two kilometers from, and along strike of, the Holmer Gold Deposit of Lakeshore Gold (TSX-V: LSG), which is reported to contain 724,000 inferred ounces of gold. Probe's gold zones share a number of geological similarities with it. In addition to the positive results from the Bristol Gold Project, Probe has recently identified three separate base metal-enriched horizons on the McFauld's Lake property, with a total potential strike length of more than 10km. As well, Probe Mines maintains a 5% net smelter royalty interest in claims covering part of Agnico-Eagle Mines Limited (TSX: AGE) Goldex Mine property in Val d'Or, Quebec, which is currently undergoing feasibility studies. Probe's shares trade on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol PRB.
