Integra Gold Increases Lamaque Indicated Resource to 756,280 ounces grading 7.1 g/t Gold

January 28, 2014 --
Integra Gold Increases Lamaque Indicated Resource to 756,280 ounces grading 7.1 g/t Gold



Press Release Highlights:

• Using a 5 grams/tonne gold (g/t Au) cut-off grade, the average indicated grade of the global Lamaque project resource increases to 9.8 g/t Au for a total of 569,410 ounces

• Resource estimations completed for two additional deposits at the Lamaque Project: No. 6 Vein and Sixteen Zone

• An additional 29,900 meters of recent drilling in four zones, namely the Parallel, No. 3 Mine, Triangle South and No. 5 Plug, has not been modelled yet or included in current resource estimates

• Three diamond drills currently operating on the project

Integra Gold Corp. (TSX-V: ICG) ("Integra" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has completed mineral resource estimations on two additional targets for its Lamaque Gold Project (Lamaque”) located in Val-dOr, Qubec. The new resource calculations were conducted by Geopointcom and will be included in an NI 43-101 Technical Report currently being updated by Geologica Inc. Further details on the mineral resource estimation parameters and results will be detailed in the updated NI 43-101 technical report which will be filed on SEDAR within 45 days. For clarification, all Integras Lamaque resources are separate from the adjacent Sigma and Lamaque Mines, which have collectively produced over 9 million ounces of gold.

Including the resource disclosure made September 2013 (see press release dated September 25, 2013), estimation has now been completed for six separates deposits at the Lamaque Project. These include:

• Parallel Zone;

• Triangle Zone;

• Fortune Zone;

• No. 4 Plug;

• Sixteen Zone; and

• No. 6 Vein

Mineralization at the Lamaque Project is found in multiple zones, all within close proximity to each other, including some zones within a few hundreds of meters of one another. The Company is currently building an economic model which will involve mining a number of these zones concurrently therefore alleviating excess pressure being put on any one zone to meet daily tonnage targets. The Company believes there will be significant advantages to this scenario as it will allow for flexibility while developing and producing material from Lamaque. This approach also gives the Company flexibility when assessing various milling options in the Val-dOr area, as it is not restricted to one specific daily tonnage target or metallurgical recovery process.

Resource Summary

The global Lamaque indicated resource has increased by 14% to 756,280 ounces and the inferred resource increased by 9% to 293,710 ounces. Significant potential remains to increase the resource base laterally and at depth in most of the deposits, or mineralized zones at Lamaque. Three additional targets drilled in 2012 and 2013, the No. 5 Plug, Triangle South and No. 3 mine, are yet to be added to the Lamaque global resource and late 2013 definition drilling at Parallel has still not been integrated into that zones resource.

The Lamaque Project continues to deliver with two more zones modelled and estimated and three additional zones pending. The resource estimate announced today demonstrates the projects tremendous ability to grow, and given our aggressive ongoing exploration campaign, the potential to expand the resource in the short term is promising.” commented Company President and CEO, Stephen de Jong. Integra is well financed, with $7 million in working capital, actively drilling, and nearing completion of a PEA which will outline the economics of the project. We want to be Qubecs next high-grade gold producer, and we strongly believe we have the right project and team to make this happen, in spite of the challenges our industry continues to face.”

Mineral Resources Update - No. 6 Vein and Sixteen Zone - Selected Disclosure Cut-Off (3 g/t Au)

Mineral resources disclosed today are from two zones respectively located 1.5 and 2.5 km west of our North Cluster deposits. These new zones are collectively referred to as the West Cluster.

Similar to other Lamaque deposits, gold mineralization is contained within quartz-tourmaline-pyrite veins. The host rock for mineralization at Sixteen zone is a diorite sill, an unit similar to other Lamaque deposits. The host rocks at No. 6 Vein are mafic volcanics, making it the third zone at the Lamaque Project, including the new discovery at South Triangle zone, found outside the usual intrusive host rock. The discovery of mineralization within mafic volcanics proves there is substantial potential for further mineralization at Lamaque that was never discovered by past operators, including Teck. Previous exploration often focused on mineralization hosted within intrusive rocks and/or within close proximity to intrusive rocks.

At No. 6 Vein, a set of three sub-parallel vein systems were modelled between 70 to 400 meters below surface, forming mineralized envelopes of up to 400 m by 250 m and which dip 30 to 40 degrees to the south. These vein arrays are open in all directions. A total of 12,436 m of drilling in 57 holes was used to complete the No. 6 Vein estimates.

At the Sixteen Zone, a set of four sub-parallel vein systems were modelled between 100 to 300 m below surface, forming mineralized envelops of up to 200 m by 75 m which dip between 10 to 45 degrees to the east. Two of these zones are open laterally to the south and one remains open at depth. A total of 14,074 m of drilling in 63 holes was used to complete the Sixteen Zone estimate.

The following tables provide a summary, by zone, of indicated and inferred mineral resources at the selected disclosure cut-off (3 g/t Au):

Project and Company Profile

Integras Lamaque gold project is located in the heart of the Val-dOr gold camp in the Province of Qubec, Canada, approximately 550 km northwest of Montral. Qubec is rated one of the best mining jurisdictions in the world. Infrastructure, human resources and mining expertise are readily available.

The Companys primary objective is to continue to prove up additional resources while advancing the existing resource towards production. The project has previously been split into two main clusters of mineralization, the North and South Clusters, which are located approximately 1 km from each other. The South Cluster consists of the No. 4 Plug, Triangle and Triangle South zones, and is located 3 km from the City of Val-dOr. The North Cluster consists of the Parallel, Fortune, No. 5 Plug, and No. 3 Mine zones, and is located 1 km from Val dOr. The two new added zones, the Sixteen Zone and No. 6 Vein, form a new Cluster that will now be referred to as the West Cluster in the future.

Qualified Persons (QP”)

The Lamaque exploration project is under the direct supervision of Herv Thiboutot, Eng., Senior Vice-President of the Company, and Francois Chabot, Eng., Manager Operations/Engineering of the Company. Both Mr. Thiboutot and Mr. Chabot are QPs as defined by the National Instrument 43-101. Alain-Jean Beauregard, P.Geo., Daniel Gaudreault, Eng., Geo., of Geologica Inc., and Christian DAmours, P. Geol., OGQ, are responsible for the completion of the 2013 resource updates; all three are independent QPs as defined by the National Instrument 43-101. The Companys QPs have reviewed the technical content of this release.

Quality Assurance - Quality Control (QA/QC”)

Thorough QA/QC protocols are followed on the project including insertion of duplicate, blank and standard samples in all drill holes. The core samples are submitted directly to ALS Laboratory Group and Bourlamaque Labs in Val-d'Or for preparation and analysis. Analysis is conducted on 1 assay-ton aliquots. Analysis of Au is performed using fire assay method with atomic absorption finish, with a gravimetric finish completed for samples exceeding 5 g/t Au, or a metallic sieve assay for all samples containing visible gold. When available the gravimetric or metallic sieve assay results are used for the reported composite intervals and for mineral resource estimations.
