VAL-D'OR, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - Feb. 17, 2015) - Cartier Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ECR) ("Cartier") announces that it is conducting geophysical surveys (OreVision and Magnetometer) over the extensions of the Pusticamica deposit on the Benoist Property situated between the Bachelor and Langlois mines. This follows Cartier's successful results of one test line over the deposit. The new surveys cover the deposit and the lateral extensions over a distance of 3 kilometers.

The surveys are conducted on a 40 line-km grid that covers a 2 km by 3 km area with the favorable altered and gold-mineralised unit ("rhyolitic lavas") that host the Pusticamica deposit (Figure). The surveys extend in a north-east to south-west orientation in order to detect other gold-bearing zones along the lateral extensions of the Pusticamica deposit from surface to depths of up to 450 m as demonstrated by last month's test survey.

"The objective of the surveys is to detect new targets peripheral to the Pusticamica deposit" commented Philippe Cloutier, President and CEO, adding "Finding new gold-bearing zones with grades similar to intersections of the Pusticamica deposit would add to the economic interest of the project".
