Grab Samples from Jourdan’s Cache Property Returns Up To 5.68% P2O5
May 6, 2014 (Source: FSC Wire) — JOURDAN RESOURCES INC. (TSX-V: JOR) (“JOURDAN” or the “Company”) (www.jourdan.ca) is pleased to announce the results of grab samples collected on the company’s Cache project located 100 km northeast of Saguenay and 100 km southwest of Jourdan’s Dissimieux Lake Phosphate Property, in the Province of Québec, Canada.
The grab samples were collected during the prospecting program on the Cache and Hache projects completed in November 2013. The purpose of the prospecting program on Cache was to test areas near historical trenches outlined in the report “Rapport De Visite et Cartographie Sommaire Propriété Du Lac Périgny”, By Rejean Girard, IOS Services Geoscientifiques Inc., July 18, 2001.
A total of seven grab samples were collected within 300 metres of the historical trench 1 described in Jourdan press release (http://www.jourdan.ca/uploads/177.pdf) of September 19th, 2013 and shown below. Sample 265007 which assayed 5.68% P2O5 and 4.81% TiO2 was collected approximately 275m north of trench 1. Samples 265004 and 265010 collected approximately 150m north of the trench assayed 5.11% P2O5 and 3.85% P2O5 respectively. See Table 1 and Map 3.
These samples are located in the 800m distance between historical trenches 1 and 2, suggesting continuity between the trenches. The sampling was curtailed after just a single day due to weather conditions and additional sampling, including sampling of historical trenches is planned for 2014. Investors should note grab samples are selective by nature and may not be representative of average grades of the mineralization within zones.

Historical work on the Cache Property by previous property holders includes mechanical stripping in which 3 trenches were cut totaling approximately 50 metres of sampling. Trench 1 includes two sample intervals 11 metres grading 4.14% P2O5 and 6.43% TiO2 and 19 metres grading 3.41% P2O5 and 4.53% TiO2 (see Map 4). These two intervals are separated by 9 metres which was not sampled due to overburden (see Table 2).

Quality assurance / Quality Control (“QA/QC”)
Surface grab samples averaging 1 kilogram each were taken by qualified personnel from Jourdan. Samples were bagged, sealed and numbered on-site, and delivered to Jourdan’s Mississauga office by Jourdan staff. Blank samples, standards and duplicates were inserted into the sample stream and the full set of samples was transported to AGAT Laboratories in Mississauga, Ontario for analysis. At the laboratory facility, samples were inventoried, weighed and dried; crushed 75% to under 2 millimetres; riffled split with a 250 gram sub-sample pulverized 85% to under 75 microns; then followed by analysis using packages 201-078 Lithogeochemical Analysis by ICP/ICPMS Finish and 201-676 XRF Whole Rock Analysis.
