VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/01/13 -- Pistol Bay Mining Inc. (TSX VENTURE: PST) reports that it continues to evaluate its 100% owned Summit Lake B property (Kitty Claims) as a result of significant interest received due to the recent Cooper-Gold discovery on Colorado Resources North ROK property in the Iskut area of northern British Columbia. The 1,394 hectare Summit B property is contiguous with the Colorado Resources North ROK property and 20 kilometres northwest of Imperial Metals Red Chris Copper-Gold project. Colorado Resources has announced a work program of step-out drilling. Pistol Bay's total land package in this area consists of three properties totaling over 8,500 hectares, much of which is adjacent to the Red Chris project.

Previous geological mapping, rock sampling and soil sampling (2010) on Pistol Bay's Summit B property has outlined two parallel zones, anomalous in gold and copper, over a length of 500 metres, along a northwest trending fault. These zones are open in both directions. Along the same fault, and 1.5 kilometres to the northwest, cat trenching exposed more copper mineralization. A composite grab sample from this trench returned 0.766% copper.
The B.C. Minfile description of the Kitty occurrence reports historic work including 9 bulldozer trenches over an area of 170 by 5 metres (B.C. Assessment Report 21416) and historic results from surface grab samples as high as 8.98% copper, 24.5 g/t silver and 0.045 g/t gold. Grab samples as high as 1.61 g/t gold and 0.6% copper have been returned from another showing approximately 50 metres southwest of the bulldozed trench area.
Grab samples are selective in nature and assays may not be representative of all mineralization on the property.
