Mega Precious Metals Intersects 55m of 3.33 g/t Gold Including 15.0 g/t Gold Over 5m, Expands Multiple High Grade Structures Near Surface at Monument Bay

June 11, 2014

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - June 11, 2014) - Mega Precious Metals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:MGP) ("Mega") is pleased to announce an additional four (4) holes from its 29 hole, 4,784m winter drill program and six (6) holes from its OCAP (Old Core Assay Program) on its high grade gold and tungsten Monument Bay Project, located in Manitoba. The success of the winter drill program continues to expand multiple high grade gold/tungsten structures to surface within the porphyritic dyke host rock and associated shear zones at the Twin Lakes Deposit.

Highlights: -- Mega's 2014 drill program has now encountered multiple high grade gold and gold/tungsten structures near surface within broader gold mineralized zones with multiple occurrences of visible gold ("VG") -- TL-14-532 intersects 55.0m of 3.33 g/t gold including 15.0 g/t gold over 5.0m plus 14.0m @ 0.16 WO3 -- TL-14-527 intersects 37.6m of 3.06 g/t gold including 5.32 g/t gold and 0.12% WO3 over 17.0m -- The OCAP program continues to define broad gold zones coupled with multiple gold/tungsten shear zones that were previously left unassayed

-- TL-02-99 intersects 20.0m of 2.38 g/t gold along with 0.98% WO3 over 2.1m -- TL-03-123 intersects 19.0m of 1.56 g/t gold along with 4.64 g/t gold and 0.27% WO3 over 8.1m -- TL-13-503 intersects 24.5m of 1.00 g/t gold including 2.35 g/t gold and 0.17% WO3 over 8.5m -- TL-11-427 intersects 43.0m of 1.66 g/t gold including 5.71 g/t gold over 10.0m plus 0.03% WO3 over 14.0m



Holes TL-14-532, TL-14-531, TL-11-439, TL-11-466 and TL-11-427 have successfully extended multiple high grade gold and tungsten mineralized structures up to or near surface at the western portion of the potential Twin Lakes open pit. These higher grade structures in the west and central portions of the pit constrained resource demonstrate gold equivalent grades that are comparable to the high grade structures found in the eastern area where previously released hole TL-14-526 intersected 61.0m of 3.44 g/t gold including 6.64 g/t gold over 30.0m plus 8.0m @ 0.21 WO3. (See Figure 1, 2 and 3).

In the central portion, holes TL-14-527, TL-13-503, TL-02-99 and TL-03-123 were focused on identifying additional near surface high grade gold/tungsten mineralization through the expansion of the high grade mineralized cores.

The 2014 winter drill program has encountered vein grades X thickness that have improved since the June 2013 Twin Lake Resource. Collectively, these drill results continue to identify near surface high grade gold/tungsten mineralization, within a broader gold mineralized zone all within the upper 5-100 m of the deposit. Subsequent drill programs have the potential to identify additional high grade structures within and between the high grade starter pits. (See Figure 1)

Glen Kuntz, P.Geo, President and CEO, stated "We are pleased that our winter drilling and OCAP programs are delivering multiple high grade gold and tungsten intercepts. These results either correlate well to or are better than the estimated grades in our June 2013 gold-only resource estimate. Overall, these gold/tungsten results have the potential to change the economics of the project and we continue to be excited at the continuity of the multiple high grade gold/tungsten structures along strike and at depth. Our goal is to include as much of the 2013/2014 drilling and OCAP program as possible into an updated gold/tungsten NI 43-101 resource estimate in Q3 2014."

MZTLD equates to Main Zone Twin Lakes Deposit Tungsten Current Spot price is $42,000/tonne. Gold assays capped at 88.0 gpt as per June 2013 NI43-101 Report. The Company has not determined the economic cut-off grade for and metallurgical recoveries WO3. Down-hole thickness, true width varies depending on drill hole dip; most 2014 drill holes are intersecting the vein structures perpendicularly therefore down hole width are close to true width.

More than 12,000 m of new drilling (2013/2014) and over 8,000m of historical core from 64 drill holes of the OCAP program has yet to be incorporated into a new resource. Mega expects to provide an updated NI 43-101 resource during Q3 of 2014 which will encompass gold, tungsten and include the results from the metallurgical testing program. The Company has limited deep drilling at Monument Bay which is located in an Abitibi style Green Stone Belt and has the same style of gold and tungsten mineralization as the Hollinger Mine in the Timmins Camp. These types of deposits are known to extend beyond 2,000 m. The current Monument Bay pit constrained resource covers a strike length of 8 kms.

The 338km2 property is located on Crown property 570 km northeast of Winnipeg and 340 km east southeast of Thompson, Manitoba. The nearest communities are Red Sucker Lake First Nation, 52 km to the southwest, and God's Lake Narrows First Nation, 100 km to the west.

Mega currently has winter road access to its camp from local communities. Manitoba's Current Northern Development Strategy is building all-purpose roads and infrastructure improvements within the region. Once these are complete, Mega will have all purpose roads within approximately 52 km of our project area. The current power lines which connect Red Sucker Lake First Nation and God's Lake Narrows First Nation have very low electricity rates (estimated at $0.02-0.04/kWh) and are approximately 48 kms from our project area.

Technical Information

The design of Mega's drilling programs, Quality Assurance/Quality Control and interpretation of results is under the control of Mega's geological staff including qualified persons employing a QA/QC program consistent with NI 43-101 and industry best practices. A detailed review of Mega's QA/QC procedures is filed in the NI 43-101 report dated June 17, 2013 and on SEDAR.

All drill core is transported by Company personnel from drill site to our camp for logging, sampling preparation are completed. Sampling intervals are defined after core logging and determination of scheelite content by examination under short-wave UV-light. One half of the core is sent for analysis, while the other half is retained in the core boxes for future reference. All samples are shipped to Accurassay Laboratories in Thunder Bay, Ontario and analyzed employing the appropriate gold fire assaying technique. For QA/QC purposes the Company as well as the lab submits standards and blanks every 20 samples. Samples are analyzed for W by XRF and Assay results for tungsten are reported by the laboratory as W%. WO3 values are calculated using a conversion factor of 1.2611. BC Energy & Mines
