Integra Mining Trials Underground Mining‎

Integra Mining Limited has released the assays of the follow up diamond drilling at its Imperial prospect. The assays returned high grade gold copper intersections at 6.2 meters at 13.43 grams per tonne of gold and 1.5% of copper.

The Imperial prospect is located 500 meters north west of the Majestic gold deposit. It is hosted in the same granodiorite unit that hosts the Majesti deposit and has a similar series of porphyry dykes. Results include 19 meters at 4.39 grams per tonne of gold, including 2 meters at 7.37 grams per tonne gold and 1 meter at 40.81 grams per tonne and 4 meters at 3.13 grams per tonne.

The Australian listed Integra Mining made the transition from gold explorer to producer in September 2010 when it made its first gold pouring at the Randalls Gold Project. The project remains the flagship project while the company continues to build up its mineral portfolio in Western Australia.

Integra Mining is waiting for regulatory and board approvals before beginning trial underground mining at the Cock- eyed Bob gold deposit. The trial hopes to demonstrate the potential for long term production from underground sources at the Randalls Gold Project as well. If the trial is successful the company will begin underground development at the Maxwells gold deposit. Maxwells is currently being operated as an open pit mine.
