Integra Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE: ICG) ("Integra" or the "Company") is pleased to announce additional results from its winter 2014 Triangle Zone definition and extension drill program at the Lamaque Gold Project ("Lamaque") located in Val-d'Or, Québec. The Company has now completed over 22,117 m of drilling in 58 drill holes on the Triangle Zone in 2014. The Triangle Zone, located in the southern part of the Lamaque project, contains the Company's highest grade indicated resource. Results announced today are from 10 holes, representing 3,900 m of the 2014 program. Integra has now released 23 holes out of the 58 drilled for a total 9,600 m. The Company currently has five drill rigs operating on the Lamaque Project.

"These latest results continue to confirm the continuity of the deeper high-grade zones at the Triangle deposit which in the previous resource estimate were primarily reported as inferred resources. These results demonstrate both the potential to grow the resource at Lamaque as well as the Company's ability to convert inferred resources to the indicated category. The current program at Triangle has also tested the east, west and south limits of the Triangle deposit, all of which remain open and continue to show potential for resource expansion, with the majority of assay results still pending," commented Company President and CEO, Stephen de Jong. "Drilling at the Triangle Zone has also validated the geological model the Company used to determine the resources and develop the mine plan in the Company's PEA." 

Triangle Definition and Extension Drilling Program

The Triangle Zone winter drill program focused on both reducing the drill spacing for the upper portion of the deposit, and testing for lateral extensions in order to increase the overall resource base. Although drilling has intersected multiple zones of high grade mineralization to over 1,000 m vertical, the Company has opted to focus its efforts on near surface resource expansion, above 600 meters, and further increase the level of confidence in resources incorporated into its preliminary economic assessment ("PEA"). Deposits with similar geological characteristics in the immediate area, such as the neighbouring Sigma Mine, have been mined to 2,000 meters within a host rock that is known to continue at depth.

Drilling at the Triangle Zone has reduced drill spacing to approximately 35 m centers for the upper portion part of the deposit, above the 600 m vertical level. Drill holes had previously been spaced 50 to 75 m apart. This drilling also aimed at confirming the continuity of the gold bearing horizons interpreted in the 2013 resource model while at the same time being used to upgrade, or convert, as much of the inferred resources as possible into the indicated resource category. To date, drilling has definitively confirmed the mineralized horizons structural continuity, providing further confidence in the Company's geological model and in the Company's ongoing ability to continue to convert resources to the indicated category.

This 2014 program also tested for extensions of the Triangle Zone in all directions in order to increase the Company's near surface resources. Any new resource calculations will be added to future economic evaluations. A number of the drill holes disclosed today tested the deepest part of the Triangle zone, and based on assay results available to date the program has been successful in proving the continuity of those zones. Considering the results of the winter program, the Company will be aggressively pushing forward on an updated resource estimate, which it anticipates will be completed in the second half of 2014.

2014 Lamaque Drill Program

Planned drilling for 2014 at the Lamaque project has been increased to a minimum of 45,000 m. This includes the current 24,000 m definition program at the Triangle Zone, definition drilling at the Fortune Zone (8,000 m), exploration drilling at Plug No. 5 (5,000 m) and Mine No. 3 targets (6,000 m), and geotechnical drilling at Parallel, Triangle, and Fortune (2,000 m). The Plug No. 5 and Mine No. 3 targets are not currently included in the Lamaque Project's total resource and pending the outcome of the proposed drill programs the Company may conduct resource estimation on these targets in the latter part of 2014.

Project and Company Profile

Integra's Lamaque gold project is located in the heart of the Val-d'Or gold camp in the Province of Québec, Canada, approximately 550 km northwest of Montréal. Québec is rated one of the best mining jurisdictions in the world. Infrastructure, human resources and mining expertise are readily available.

The Company's primary objective is to continue to prove up additional resources while advancing the existing resource towards production. The project is divided into three main clusters of mineralization, the North, South and West Cluster. The North Cluster consists of the Parallel, Fortune, No. 5 Plug, and No. 3 Mine Zones and is located approximately 1 km northwest from the South Cluster, which includes the No. 4 Plug, Triangle and Triangle South Zones. The Sixteen Zone and No. 6 Vein form the West Cluster.

Qualified Person

The Lamaque exploration project is under the direct supervision of Hervé Thiboutot, Eng. and Senior Vice-President of the company, and Francois Chabot, Eng., Operations and Engineering Manager of the Company, both Qualified Person ("QP") as defined by National Instrument 43-101, and Alain-Jean Beauregard, P.Geo., and Daniel Gaudreault, Eng., Geo. of Géologica Inc., both independent QP as defined by National Instrument 43-101. The Company's QPs have reviewed the technical content of this release.

Quality Assurance - Quality Control ("QA/QC")

Thorough QA/QC protocols are followed on the project including insertion of duplicate, blank and standard samples in all drill holes. The core samples are submitted directly to Bourlamaque Lab in Val-d'Or for preparation and analysis. Analysis is conducted on 1 assay-ton aliquots. Analysis of Au is performed using fire assay method with atomic absorption finish, with a gravimetric finish completed for samples exceeding 5 g/t Au, or a metallic sieve assay for samples containing visible gold. When available the gravimetric or metallic sieve assay results are used for the reported composite intervals.
