Tintina Resources Inc. ("Tintina" or the "Company") (TSX-VENTURE:TAU)(OTCQX:TINTF) is pleased to announce it has received assay results for fifteen (15) new drill holes from the company's flagship Black Butte Copper Project, located in central Montana, USA (see table 1). These in-fill drill holes completed in late 2012 in the Lowry Deposit Middle Zone together with earlier drilling results will form the basis for a new Lowry Deposit Middle Zone resource estimate, expected in Q2 of 2013.
The results from the four (4) 2012 drill holes highlighted above are among results from fifteen (15) new drill holes which will help provide the basis for a forthcoming Lowry Deposit Middle Zone (LD-MZ) resource estimate which is scheduled to be completed later in 2013. Two (2) holes, SC12-161 and SC12-163, continued to depth to test the Lowry Deposit Lower Zone (LD-LZ) and six (6) additional holes also produced good grade but thin intersections from the Lowry Deposit Upper Zone (LD-UZ), and these results are also tabled below in Table 1.
Jerry Zieg, Vice President of Exploration said: "We are very pleased to continue to report thick, high grade copper intersections from the Black Butte Copper project. The Lowry Middle Zone results will form the basis for a new resource estimate for the Lowry deposit which should become a substantial addition to our Measured and Indicated Resource inventory. We will then have the opportunity to incorporate the updated drill defined resources in a pre-feasibility or feasibility study currently being contemplated by the Company."
