CALGARY, ALBERTA–(Market Wired – April 12, 2016) – Margaux Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: MRL; “Margaux”) is pleased to announce the results from recent underground sampling at its Jersey-Emerald property located near Salmo, BC. The result of this sampling supports the potential for zinc, lead and silver resources remaining in the immediate area of the Emerald 4640 drift.
Highlights from the recent sampling include values over 10% zinc and 20% lead (see below table, samples 4640-02 and 4640-04).
On March 16, 2016, Margaux collected six samples (Table 1) from a historic 12.8 metre south-trending exploration drift (circa 1905). The drift, determined to be at mine level 4640, was discovered during the 2014 East Emerald Tungsten drilling campaign (see new release dated November 5, 2014).

Samples 4640-01 to 4640-04 were continuous chips along a band of galena-rich mineralization running the length of the drift. Sample 4640-05 was a chip across the 0.9 m wide galena-rich band at the face. Sample 4640-06 was a 2.7 m sample containing a lower sphalerite-rich lens near the floor of the drift.
The drift that was sampled is located approximately 150 m northeast of drillholes E1419 and E1420, which delivered elevated zinc and lead results (Table 2, from Margaux news release dated December 2, 2014).

The recent sampling at the 4640 underground drift combined with the results from the 2014 drilling support the potential for remaining zinc and lead resources on the property. This area of exploration extends northward along strike from the Jersey Pb-Zn mine.
The underground sampling was conducted under the supervisions of Mr. Perry Grunenberg, P. Geo. Who is Margaux’ qualified person for the purposes of National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects, and has reviewed and approved the technical disclosure contained in this news release.
Quality Assurance and Quality Control (“QA/QC”) Procedures
Samples were placed into sealed bags that were delivered by a commercial trucking company to the ALS Global preparation facility in Kamloops.
The samples were analyzed for all elements using ultra trace aqua regia digestion with an ICP-MS finish (ME-MS41). Overgrade zinc was analyzed by using the ore-grade aqua regia technique, and overgrade lead was analyzed by using the ore-grade aqua regia technique or titration.
