Entourage Metals and Ocean Park Report Drill Results from Rous Lake Project, Hemlo District, Ontario

Entourage Metals and Ocean Park Report Drill Results from Rous Lake Project, 
Hemlo District, Ontario 
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/02/13 -- Entourage
Metals Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:EMT) (the "Company") and Ocean Park Ventures
(TSX VENTURE:OCP) report results of the drill program on the Rous
Lake property, Ontario from November to December 2012. The 2012
exploration program is part of an ongoing effort to identify
satellite deposits to Barrick Gold Corp.'s Hemlo Mine, located
immediately adjacent to the Rous Lake property. 
Drilling extended an early 2012 drill hole (RL12-02) from an original
depth of 668.0 metres to a final depth of 1373.0 metres, testing the
on-strike, hanging wall extension of the Main Mineralized Trend from
Hemlo. Drill results include: 


 
1.  Locally anomalous gold mineralization (50 to 215 ppb gold), associated
    with various rock types and structural settings, 
 
2.  Anomalously gold mineralized quartz feldspar porphyry ("QFP") units with
    sulfidation increasing with depth and up to 10% pyrite, similar to the
    Moose Lake Porphyry at Hemlo, 
 
3.  Drill confirmation of anomalous gold-in-bedrock mineralization
    underlying surface soil gas hydrocarbon (SGH) targets, showing the
    viability of this geochemical exploration technique, and 
 
4.  Drill confirmation of the on-strike extension of many of the geological
    characteristics and alteration features of the Hemlo mine horizon. 

 
Technical problems terminated RL12-02 prematurely in a zone of
increasing alteration, QFP sulfidation and anomalous gold prior to
reaching its target - the footwall extension of the Main Mineralized
Trend that hosts much of the gold mineralization at Hemlo. Previously
reported results from the upper part of this hole include 2.5 g/t
gold over 1.0 metre from 653.0 to 654.0 metres (see Entourage news
release of August 1, 2012). 
Results indicate the Rous Lake property is associated with extensions
of the deep-seated mineralizing system that produced strong gold
mineralization at Hemlo. The increase of QFP-hosted sulfidation at
depth indicates additional drilling and/or downhole geophysics are
warranted to define lateral or down-dip targets that may be
prospective for significant, Hemlo-style gold mineralization. 
The vertical depths achieved by RL12-02 of 1,250 metres are
consistent with the lower levels of gold mineralization included in
the known resource at Hemlo. A second drill hole was initiated early
in the drill program which would have tested the system at shallower
depth, however technical problems forced the abandonment of this
hole. 
RL12-02 targeted a coincident soil-gas hydrocarbon (SGH) and gravity
anomaly on the Rous Lake property, where two mineralized trends
merge; the Northern Arm Trend and the Hemlo-Heron Bay Shear Zone
(Main Mineralized Trend).  
The SGH method is useful in deeply covered terrains where
conventional soil geochemistry is ineffectual. At Rous Lake, over 200
metres of overburden including raised beach sand covers most of the
property. This geochemical method has been shown to accurately
identify known mineralization at depth through orientation surveys
and has contributed to recent gold discoveries in the Canadian Shield
and elsewhere. The SGH survey is a deep penetrating geochemical
method that involves the analysis of various hydrocarbons using a
forensic approach for identification. Recent drilling at Rous Lake
has tested only two of several SGH targets. 
Gravity breaks are associated with gold deposits in the Abitibi
Greenstone Belt (OFR 6189, Discover Abitibi), a major gold mining
camp with similar characteristics to the Hemlo Greenstone Belt. At
Rous Lake, the close association of SGH anomalies and a major gravity
break provide an attractive exploration target. 
A comprehensive quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) program is
in place to monitor precision and accuracy of the assay results. All
core samples are submitted with certified reference materials
(standards, blanks and duplicates). Internal standards and blank
samples were inserted after every sample that contained visible gold
for quality control purposes. Assay samples are taken from BQTW/NQ/HQ
core, sawed in half along the core axis with one-half sent to AGAT
Laboratories in Mississauga, Ontario and the other half retained by
Entourage for future reference. AGAT laboratories are ISO 9001
accredited. 
Entourage's exploration activity is under the supervision of John C.
Florek, P.Geo, Vice-President Exploration for Entourage Metals. Mr.
Florek is a Qualified Persons as defined by NI 43-101. Mr. Florek
prepared and approved the information contained in this release. 
Entourage Metals has active mineral projects in the Hemlo Greenstone
Belt and Southern Swayze Greenstone Belt in Ontario. Details on
