Canada Strategic Metals Intersects 3.03 Gold Over 25.50 Meters at Sakami Gold Project
February 4, 2014 (Source: Marketwired) — Canada Strategic Metals Inc. (“Canada Strategic Metals” or “the Company”) (TSX VENTURE:CJC)(FRANKFURT:YXEN)(OTCBB:CJCFF) and Matamec Explorations Inc. (TSX VENTURE:MAT)(OTCQX:MHREF) are pleased to announce the latest gold results from the recent drilling campaign on the Sakami Gold project. Nine drillholes have been completed during the program for a total of 1,605 meters.
The objective of the campaign was to validate and extend the historical zone funded by Matamec Explorations between 2000 and 2004 on the La Pointe area. A complete table of the drillhole collar location is present below.
To date, the Company has received gold assay results for holes PT-13-64 and PT-13-65. Hole PT-13-64, which was drilled to test an induced polarization anomaly, has identified two new gold zones, with intersections of 1.27 g/t Au over 1.05 metres and 3.62 g/t Au over 0.50 metres. Hole PT-13-65, which was aimed at extending and validating the intersection from historical Hole EX-22, intersected a mineralized zone grading 3.03 g/t Au over 25.50 metres, including 4.00 g/t Au over 12.00 metres. A table with the mineralized intersections and assay results is shown below.
The Company has begun receiving the results for holes PT-13-66 and PT-13-67, and is now in the process of compiling them. The results will be released as soon as this process is complete. A table showing both the mineralized intersections from the most recent program and the results of historical drilling can be found below.

The 2013 drilling program was managed by Consul-Teck Exploration of Val-d’Or, Quebec who designed the drilling campaign, supervised the program and logged and sampled the core.
Consul-Teck Exploration implemented QA/QC procedures to ensure best practices in sampling and analysis of the core samples. The drill core was logged and then split, with one-half sent for assay and the other retained in the core box as a witness sample. Duplicates, standards and blanks were inserted regularly into the sample stream.
The samples were delivered, in secure tagged bags, directly to the analytical facility for analysis; in this case Bourlamaque Ltee laboratory facility in Val-d’Or (Quebec). The samples are weighed and identified prior to sample preparation. All samples are analysed by fire assay with AA finish on a 30g sample (0.01-10 ppm Au), with a gravimetric finish for assays over 10 ppm Au.
Jean-Sebastien Lavallée (OGQ #773), geologist, shareholder and President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company and a Qualified Person under NI 43-101, has reviewed and approved the technical content of this release.
