Aldridge Minerals Reports Positive Drilling Results from Yenipazar Project

Aldridge Minerals Inc. (TSX-V: AGM) has announced the results of its recently completed Reverse Circular infill drilling program on the Yenipazar Au-Ag-Cu-Pb-Zn Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide deposit in central Turkey.

This program was designed to convert the currently inferred resources, 3.15 Mt in the southern part of the deposit, to indicated resources. Mineralization here is generally of lower grade than in the central and northern parts, but has yielded some very good intersections described below. Mineralization appears near-horizontal in this area, and the intersections should represent approximately true thickness. "These positive results continue to validate the potential of our project," said Jacob Willoughby, President Aldridge Minerals. "As we continue to evaluate the results of our drilling program we will provide an updated resource estimate in the fourth quarter."

Highlights: - 34 RC infill holes, totalling 4,358 metres, were all drilled vertically. - All holes were drilled in the southern part of the Yenipazar deposit along 6 different east-west lines. Two of the holes were abandoned due to technical problems but were repeated (YP-343B, YP-354B). - Each of the 32 holes encountered above background mineralization. On one particular line (Line 4362800), mineralization was shallow in 9 out of 11 holes at between 14 and 100 metres depth. - The best 14 holes are listed in the table below. The best intersection was in hole YP-343B, which cut 34 metres of grading 1.28 g/t gold, 35.67 g/t silver, 0.29% copper, 1.89% lead and 2.92% zinc beginning at a depth of 60 metres. - Seven holes were drilled along Line 4362880. Mineralization was commonly observed between 50 and 120 meter depth of all holes but only 1 interval (82-84m) is above the NSR cut-off value of 15 US$/m. This was expected as the adjacent line to the north exhibited similar mineralization. - Representative material from 5 large diameter (8.5 cm) PQ holes was drilled for metallurgical testing. Assay results are pending and anticipated in Q4.
