QUÉBEC CITY, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - May 25, 2015) - Komet Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:KMT) ("Komet" or the "Company") announces the first results from the VAT Leaching pilot tests.

Started back in January, pilot testing was undertaken as part of a complete and meticulous assessment of onsite ore processing equipment. The leaching process was completely upgraded and modified to use a percolation (Up Flow) system instead of a flooding (down flow) system. These pilot tests will carry on through the next couple of months and will seek to optimize this new process by systematically varying parameters such as debit, granulometry, gold grade of treated material and elution performance.

Testing was conducted using the waste material available on site (see January 29th, 2015 press release). So far, treated material graded an average of 1.75 g/t AU and recovery rates obtained from leaching averaged 66% with a cash cost of 340 CAD/oz (see table below). Three gold elution were made resulting in 1,9 kg of gold (weighted average of 20.07 carats or 84%) and generating a revenue of 75 809 CAD. President and CEO André Gagné declares: "With those surprising and encouraging results and the the gravimetry circuit pilot tests beginning next July, our slogan Produce to discover... takes on its full meaning." All the results are based on the analysis from the laboratory of SGS at Ouagadougou using fire assay followed by atomic absorption spectrometry.
