Holes Ox13-54, 55 and 56 are shown on section D-D'. All 3 were short holes drilled to better define the east edge of mineralization on the section. Hole Ox13-54 intersected 55.7 metres grading 0.31% copper and 0.031% molybdenum (0.48% copper equivalent) from 4.4 to 60.1 metres depth, including 23 metres grading 0.42% copper and 0.036% molybdenum (0.63% copper equivalent) from 32 to 55 metres depth. Hole Ox13-55 intersected 62 metres grading 0.31% copper and 0.030% molybdenum (0.48% copper equivalent) from 45 to 107 metres depth, including 16 metres grading 0.40% copper and 0.031% molybdenum (0.58% copper equivalent) from 91 to 107 metres depth. Hole Ox13-56 intersected 77.9 metres grading 0.40% copper and 0.033% molybdenum (0.58% copper equivalent) from 6.1 to 84 metres depth, including 46 metres grading 0.47% copper and 0.040% molybdenum (0.70% copper equivalent) from 26 to 72 metres depth.
Holes Ox13-57 and 58 are shown on section E-E' and were drilled toward the northeast to total depths of 115.8 and 140.2 metres respectively. Hole Ox13-57 intersected 90.4 metres grading 0.34% copper and 0.033% molybdenum (0.51% copper equivalent) from 5.6 to 96 metres depth, including 42 metres grading 0.47% copper and 0.047% molybdenum (0.73% copper equivalent) from 54 to 96 metres depth. Hole Ox13-58 intersected 100.4 metres grading 0.25% copper and 0.025% molybdenum (0.38% copper equivalent) from 25.5 to 125.9 metres depth, including 40 metres grading 0.36% copper and 0.033% molybdenum (0.53% copper equivalent) from 61 to 101 metres depth.
Dr. Shane Ebert, president of Gold Reach, commented: "The results from holes Ox13-54 to 58 are similar to those from holes Ox13-45 to 53 and demonstrate that higher grades occur in a continuous zone along the east edge of the Ox deposit. This near surface higher grade zone has been targeted by several shallow drill holes along the length of the known Ox deposit, the results for most of these holes are still pending. The drill is currently drilling holes under the pond testing for an extension to the Ox deposit on the east side of the Damascus Fault. Several holes have been completed in this area and strongly altered rocks have been encountered containing potassic, sericitic and minor clay alteration, along with variable amounts of pyrite, chalcopyrite, molybdenite, and magnetite. Assay results for these holes are expected in 3 to 4 weeks."
Assay results for the first 14 holes drilled at Ox during the 2013 program have been received (holes Ox13-45 to Ox13-58). An additional 31 holes have been completed at Ox (Ox13-59 to 80) and are in the lab getting assayed. The drill is currently working on hole Ox13-81.
The current round of drilling is focusing on infilling and expanding three areas of higher grade near-surface mineralization with open pit potential at Ox, East Seel, and West Seel. Previous drilling in all three zones has intersected significant grades at shallow depths including hole S11-90 at East Seel which returned 194 metres grading 0.37% copper and 0.42 g/t gold (0.66% copper equivalent) starting at 22 metres depth (previously released), hole S06-42 just north of East Seel which returned 138 metres grading 0.85% Cu and 23 g/t Ag (1% copper equivalent) starting at 22 metres depth (previously released), and hole S12-108 at West Seel which intersected 316 metres grading 0.56% copper equivalent starting at 24 metres down hole, including 30 metres grading 1% copper equivalent starting at 74 metres down hole.

About Gold Reach Resources
Gold Reach Resources Ltd. has made an important new and strategic Copper Gold Molybdenum discovery on its 100% held Ootsa Property located adjacent to the 16,000 tonne per day Huckleberry Mine currently producing Cu Au and Mo in central BC.
Gold Reach's Ootsa property is an advanced stage exploration project containing the Seel and Ox porphyry systems both with compliant resource estimates open for expansion. The Company has recently added the discovery of the West Seel Porphyry where drill hole S12-118 encountered 128 metres grading 1.01% Cu Eq. consisting of 0.43% Cu, 0.33 g/t Au, 0.076% Mo and 4.76 g/t Ag within a much larger interval of 537 metres grading 0.65% Cu Eq. consisting of 0.27% Cu, 0.19 g/t Au, 0.055% Mo, and 2.69 g/t Ag. The Seel deposit contains 67.8 million tonnes of indicated resources and 410.9 million tonnes of inferred resources at a 0.2% copper equivalent cut off. The Ox deposit contains 52.65 million tonnes of inferred resources at a 0.2% copper equivalent cut off.
All drill core is logged, photographed, and cut in half with a diamond saw. Half of the core is bagged and sent to AGAT Laboratories for analysis (which is an ISO 9001 and ISO/IEC 17025 certified lab), while the other half is archived and stored on site for verification and reference purposes. Gold is assayed by standard fire assay methods with 45 additional elements analyzed by Induced Coupled Plasma (ICP) utilizing a 4-acid digestion. Duplicate samples, blanks, and certified standards are included with every sample batch and then checked to ensure proper quality assurance and quality control.
Dr. Shane Ebert P.Geo., President of the Company, is the Qualified Person for the Ootsa project as defined by National Instrument 43-101 and has approved the technical disclosure contained in this news release.
