Endurance Gold Corporation (EDG -- TSX.V, "Endurance") is pleased to announce that the operator of the Pardo Joint Venture property ("Pardo JV Property") has informed Endurance the discovery of a new zone of high grade gold mineralization. The initial channel samples have retuned gold values up to 26 grams per tonne ("g/t") over 3 metres.

The Pardo JV Property is comprised of 16 claims located approximately 65 km northeast of Sudbury, Ontario. The operator of the Pardo JV Property program is Ginguro Exploration Inc. ("Ginguro"). Ginguro holds a 64.5% ownership interest in the Pardo JV and Endurance owns a 35.5% participating interest.

The new area, called the Godzilla Zone, is located approximately 450 metres south of the high grade 007 Zone, announced in August 2013. Initial five grab samples at the Godzilla Zone yielded gold grades from 1.3 g/t to 10.7 g/t.

The Godzilla Zone has now been exposed over a broad area measuring 150 metres north-south by up to 125 metres east-west. Three separate channel samples were taken along the north-south axis of the zone in order to begin to characterize the grade. These three initial channels ran 17.4 g/t Au over 3 metres, 14.1 g/t over 4 metres, and 26.2 g/t Au over 3 metres. Maps and photos illustrating the location of the Godzilla Zone and the location of the initial channel samples will be posted on the Company's website at www.endurancegold.com. The channels returned the following assays:

(3m channel 

17.4 g/t Au)


(4m channel 

14.1 g/t Au)


(3m channel 

26.2 g/t Au)

0.5 12.3   0.5 11.8   0.5 22.3
0.5 13.1   0.5 14.2   0.5 52.2
0.5 12.9   0.5 6.1   0.5 13.7
0.5 28.5   0.5 7.4   0.5 31.5
0.5 26.0   0.5 17.1   0.5 26.9
0.5 11.6   0.5 15.9   0.5 10.4
      0.5 22.8      
      0.5 17.4      

Due to the near flat lying nature of the sedimentary strata, it is not always possible to cut samples across the gold-bearing strata. Samples are usually collected either parallel or perpendicular to the interpreted paleochannel direction. Therefore, the channel lengths reported in this release represent the gold distribution over the surface area sampled and do not represent true thicknesses of the mineralized unit. The gold-bearing conglomerate tested at the Godzilla Zone appears to have a true thickness of approximately 4 metres.

Washing of the bedrock has revealed a coarse cobble to quartz pebble conglomerate having elevated uranium responses, as measured by a spectrometer. Mineralization is characterized by fine rounded detrital pyrite and local buckshot pyrite. The operator reports that the combination of these characteristics indicates higher grades of gold. Thus, extensive channel sampling is ongoing at the Godzilla Zone. A total of 210 samples, representing 105 metres, have been cut and delivered for assay and additional channels are planned to be cut.

The Pardo JV is encouraged by these initial test channels which confirm the importance of this new area within a larger target area. The Godzilla Zone lies within a north-south oriented trend in which the host conglomerates of the Mississagi formation have eroded and channeled their way through the underling strata, including most of the gold-enriched Matinenda formation. As a result of this erosion, the Mississagi formation in this wide channel became significantly enriched with gold in a long-lived placer river setting. This interpreted trend extends from approximately 700 metres north of the 007 Zone to 850 metres south of the Godzilla Zone for a total of 2,000 metres north-south. The width of this interpreted channel may exceed 500 metres in places.

In the preparation of this news release, Endurance has relied on data compiled and completed by Ginguro as the operator of exploration programs, and summarized to the Company. Robert T. Boyd, P.Geo. is a qualified person as defined in National Instrument 43-101 and supervised the compilation of the technical information provided by Ginguro and forming the basis for this release. Bedrock grab samples are selective by nature and are unlikely to represent average grades.

Ginguro reports that Pardo JV samples are transported in security sealed bags for preparation at AGAT Prep Lab located in Sudbury, Ontario. Prepped samples are shipped for analysis to the AGAT Assay Laboratory in Mississauga, Ontario. AGAT Laboratories Ltd. is an ISO 17025 registered laboratory. Samples are analyzed by industry standard 50 gram fire assay fusion with atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS) finish, and a gravimetric finish on samples exceeding 10 g/t gold. Results were reported as a weighted average of gold in the three fractions. Ginguro reports that they insert a certified reference standard or an analytical blank in every batch of 20 samples and that validation parameters are established in the database to ensure quality control.
