Advanced Explorations Inc. Collaborates with Government of Nunavut on Alternative Power Solutions

April 4, 2012

Advanced Explorations Inc. (TSX-V: AXI; OTC: ADEXF) announced that it has entered into an agreement with the Government of Nunavut to advance research on alternative energy sources for use in northern Canada. The Company continues to study energy sources for use at its Roche Bay and Tuktu iron ore projects located on the east coast of the Melville Peninsula, in Nunavut, Canada. The Company believes the application of alternative energy sources can supply power and reduce its operating costs for the future mine and allow potential production expansions.

Lynden’s Wolfberry Project Production Exceeds 500 BOE/Day

April 4, 2012

Lynden Energy (OTC Other: LVLEF; TSX-V: LVL) produced more than 500 barrels of oil equivalent per day, net to Lynden, from its 30 (12.86 net) Wolfberry Project wells during the ten day period ended March 31, 2012.  The highest daily production during the period was 595 barrels of oil equivalent. 

The Company is continuing with its aggressive Wolfberry Project development plan which calls for the drilling of 31 gross (12.97 net) Wolfberry wells in calendar 2012, of which 4 gross (1.75 net) wells have now been drilled, completed and tied-in to production.

On the Company’s Mitchell Ranch Project, two new wells have been scheduled for drilling in the area of the Spade #17-1 in June / July with the objective of developing the Wolfcamp zone that is producing in the Spade #17-1. This zone is at a depth of approximately 5,000 feet.

Gold Standard Continues to Intersect Thick Intervals of Gold Mineralization

April 3, 2012

Gold Standard Ventures (OTCQX: GDVXF; TSX-V: GV) continues to intersect significant gold mineralization, including in drill hole RR11-18, 77.8 metres of 1.63 g/t gold, including 33.5 metres of 2.58 g/t gold.  Both intercepts are between 326.1 metres and 403.9 metres in depth. 

“Early in our Railroad exploration program our drilling encountered large, thick zones of collapse breccias containing anomalous gold up to the one gram, or more, and these results led us into the NBFZ target area. Potential economically important high grade feeders that created the breccias and fed in the gold mineralization are thoroughly obscured by the non-receptive capping units, and in places post-mineral volcanic rocks. Gravity data combined with geochemistry provided good information for getting us close to the major structures and the possible flanking feeder zones, but it has now become the job of the drill and careful geological interpretation of drill core and assay results to further zero in on the high grade feeder zones. We believe we may have clipped one of these feeders (185 feet of 0.125 ozAu/st) in hole RR11-16,” states Dave Mathewson, Vice President of Exploration.
