Table 2: Results from current RC Drilling (No top cut was applied to the assays). All intercepts are reported as downhole lengths, true widths are not known at this time. Click here for a full table of all results for this program: www.roxgold.com/i/pdf/Full_Drill_Table.pdf.
The RC drilling program followed up on results from the auger program conducted in the first quarter of 2013, which delineated anomalous zones to the west of the 55 Zone and to the north of the 55 Zone along the 117 Zone (Figures 2 and 3). The drilling at the 117 Zone intersected anomalous gold in a number of the holes and further work is planned to follow up on these results. Initial diamond drilling around this target including diamond drill hole YRM-13-K117-002 intersected anomalous mineralization including 6.9 gpt over 1.0 metres which will be followed up on in the ongoing regional program.
RC drilling at the 55 Zone West anomaly returned minor intervals of anomalous mineralization, however due to ground water and surficial challenges, the program was terminated ahead of schedule. Follow up work has been planned for this area as it remains a priority target that has not been adequately tested.

Roxgold is on track to complete the 55 Zone Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA") in September 2013. First pass mine engineering has commenced, on site community and environmental baseline exercises are nearing completion, infill drilling is complete, operational parameters are being defined and necessary test work is nearing completion. In conjunction with the PEA a new resource update for the 55 Zone is being completed by AGP Mining Consultants Inc.
Metallurgical test work programs at Met Solve Laboratories in Vancouver are nearing completion. In this program we are assessing overall recovery, gravity concentration, grind sensitivity, ore hardness and tailings characterisation. Preliminary results are being received and we are encouraged that they are confirmatory of the initial metallurgy program performed last year which returned excellent gravity and overall recovery metrics. In addition to defining the recovery assumptions for the project, we believe that this current round of test work will enable us to define what is likely to be a very simple processing flow sheet.
"We are pleased with the progress of the work," stated Paul Criddle, Chief Operating Officer of Roxgold, "and we believe that we will be well placed to inform the market of the quality of the project with the timely completion of the PEA."
