Wildcat - Doe Run Canadian Exploration Alliance Approves Work Program at Island Lake Property

Wildcat Exploration Ltd. is pleased to announce that the Wildcat - Doe Run Canadian Exploration Alliance (the "Alliance") has approved a work program of approximately $500,000 at its Island Lake property, located approximately 4 km southeast of the former Heath Steele zinc-lead mine in Northumberland County, N.B.

The program, to be carried out in June through August, 2014, includes geophysical and geochemical surveys, mapping and sampling, overburden drilling and a total of approximately 2,500 m of diamond drilling.

Based on review of airborne MegaTEM data, 21 electromagnetic ("EM") targets have been identified as anomalous on the Island Lake property. A preliminary assessment of the targets has been made and Wildcat geologists will further evaluate them on the ground in June. EM and magnetic ground-based surveys will be performed on the best targets with a total of 21 line-km of geophysical surveys planned. The survey results will be used to identify the most prospective drill targets on the property.

The Alliance plans to drill at the Railroad Zone to follow up on mineralization intersected during 2013 (see news release dated September 9, 2013). Drilling is also planned at the Roche Long Lac area of the property to test down dip from previously intersected zinc and lead mineralization and to investigate a coincident magnetic and EM anomaly. Additional drill targets may be determined from the ground surveys in the current work program.

The Alliance is a strategic, base metal exploration agreement between Wildcat and Doe Run Canadian Exploration ULC ("Doe Run Canadian"), a British Columbia registered company (see news release December 11, 2012). Under the terms of the Alliance, properties are acquired and held by Doe Run Canadian, subject to Wildcat's right, under certain circumstances, to earn up to a 30% interest in one or more properties.

Wildcat's exploration program is managed by Tom Lewis, P.Eng., a Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101, who has reviewed and approved all technical information in this release.
