Winter Drill Program 
TORONTO, CANADA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/18/13 -- BacTech Environmental
Corporation ("BacTech" or the "Company",
(CNSX:BAC)(OTC:BCCEF)(WKN:A1H4TY) is pleased to announce that it has
awarded a drilling contract to Rodren Drilling Ltd. of Winnipeg,
Manitoba, for its Anderson Lake winter drill program. The program
will begin today. All permits for the drill program have been
On February 12, 2013, BacTech Manitoba Corporation signed a
Memorandum of Understanding ("MOU") with HudBay Minerals Inc.
("Hudbay") (TSX:HBM)(NYSE:HBM) for the Anderson Lake tailings site
located in Snow Lake, Manitoba. Anderson Lake hosts tailings from ten
past-producing mines in the area. Pursuant to the MOU, BacTech is to
conduct a drilling program to obtain samples from the Anderson Lake
The purpose of the drill program is to quantify the grade of gold and
silver in the tails, as well as establish an oxide gold/sulphide gold
ratio with special attention to refractory type sulphides for the
tailings. The Company expects to drill 25 holes over an area of 728
sq meters at 100 meter intervals.  
The tailings were created through deposition from a number of local
mines including, but not limited to, the Chisel, Photo, Stall, Spruce
Point, Osborne, Rod, and Anderson Mines. Assay results from the drill
core will be reported once received. BacTech is interested in the
identification of refractory sulphide ounces as possible feed for the
Company's bioleach plant to be built in Snow Lake.  
Hudbay has over 60 years of mining and metal production in the Snow
Lake area. The Snow Lake-Flin Flon "Greenstone Belt" of Manitoba and
Saskatchewan is one of the most prospective areas in the world for
volcanogenic massive sulphide ("VMS") polymetallic deposits. It is
also the largest paleoproterozoic VMS district in the world (Symes et
al, 1999) and the richest Greenstone Belt in Canada per square
kilometre (Franklin, 1995). BacTech continues to investigate other
opportunities in the Greenstone Belt that have potential to be
additional feeds for the proposed Snow Lake bioleach plant.  
The Company also announces that, pursuant to the stock option plan,
the Board of Directors has approved the issuance of 750,000 options
to purchase common shares of the Company to certain directors,
employees and consultants of the Company. The exercise price of the
options is $0.20. They are subject to a four-month hold and have a
term of 5 years. The total number of outstanding options under the
Company's plan is now 4,150,000, or approximately 8.5% of the
outstanding shares.

generated within the ARS into the surrounding watershed. The Company
continues to field enquiries globally with respect to additional
opportunities for remediation.
