Newstrike Capital Inc.-ZTEM Geophysical Survey Identifies New Exploration Potential at Aurea Norte, Guerrero, Mexico

Newstrike Capital Inc.-ZTEM Geophysical Survey Identifies New Exploration 
Potential at Aurea Norte, Guerrero, Mexico 
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 09/09/13 --  
Newstrike Capital Inc. (TSX VENTURE:NES) ("Newstrike" or the
"Company") is pleased to report that a recently completed ZTEM
airborne geophysical survey flown over the Company's Aurea Norte
property has successfully identified several high priority anomalies
on a parallel trend with its flagship gold deposit at Ana Paula. The
survey covered an area known as the San Luis Trend, an important
structural corridor over ten kilometres in length that has returned
anomalous assays from widespread near-surface gold mineralization.  
"Preliminary ZTEM results have identified several 'blind' exploration
targets that coincide with favourable GGB ("Guerrero Gold Belt")
style surface alteration in outcrop that includes iron oxide
alteration, jasperoid breccia, silicified intrusion and skarn with
associated anomalous gold values. The survey results will be used to
focus exploratory drilling along this prospective trend. In addition,
several new targets were identified outside this trend that will
continue to be investigated as exploration advances," said Gillian
Kearvell, V.P Exploration. 
A 5,000 metre exploratory drill program is expected to commence
shortly that will complement the exploration activity at Aurea Norte
over the past year.  
Geotech Ltd of Aurora, Ontario, Canada was contracted to survey
approximately 250 square kilometres encompassing 1,298 flight line
kilometres flown at a line spacing of 200m. The ZTEM survey is
recognized for its ability to map resistivity contrasts associated
with the structure and alteration typically associated with
porphyry-skarn deposits or with structurally controlled epithermal
deposits. ZTEM is capable of penetrating to depths from one to two
kilometres and is useful in identifying "blind" exploration targets
(a buried target that does not outcrop at surface).  
The objective of the Aurea Norte survey was to locate potentially
buried intrusive bodies associated with the GGB mineralization model
and to confirm controlling structures along the mineralized San Luis
Trend. The new anomalies identified by the ZTEM survey include
resistivity contrasts typical of buried silicified intrusions and
with alteration commonly associated with porphyry-skarn and
epithermal style deposits. See the company website for maps from this
Exploration activities are currently focused on advancing the project
pipeline around the Company's flagship Ana Paula project, The Ana
Paula project is located internal to and surrounded by the 59,587
hectare Aurea Norte property.  
The Ana Paula project is host to a structurally controlled epithermal
style gold deposit with a pit constrained resource(i) of 44.8 million
tonnes that includes 2.25 million ounces of contained gold and 10.8
million ounces of contained silver in all categories at a weighted
average grade of 1.56 grams per tonne gold and 7.5 grams per tonne
silver (NI-43-101 technical report filed May 8th, 2013, available on
the company website or at (i)(applying cutoff grade
of 0.45 grams per tonne gold equivalent (AuEq) defined by the price,
cost and recovery assumptions). 
The mineralization at Ana Paula follows a north trending structural
corridor that lies to the west of and is parallel to the San Luis
Trend. The deposit at Ana Paula was included in the ZTEM survey area
to provide a case study and model for ongoing exploration. 
The GGB is an established gold mining district that hosts to skarn
and epithermal gold deposits located in a mining friendly
jurisdiction that offers ample infrastructure, including roads,
power, water and ports of access.

NI43-101 has reviewed the contents of this press release. Drill
programs and all project operations are conducted under the direction

estimate and potential future exploration and development results and
results of studies in respect of the Company's Ana Paula Project. We
have made numerous assumptions about the material forward-looking
information contained herein, including among other things, that
prices of gold and silver will remain relatively stable, that
applicable permits will be obtainable and that any required financing
will be available on reasonable terms.. Even though our management
believes that the assumptions made and the expectations represented
by such statements or information are reasonable, there can be no
assurance that the forward-looking statement or information will

any future results expressed or implied by such forward-looking
Such risks, uncertainties and other factors include, among others,
the following: the inherent risks and uncertainty involved in the
exploration and development of mineral properties; the uncertainties
involved in interpreting drill results and other exploration data;
the potential for delays in exploration or development activities;
the geology, grade and continuity of mineral deposits; the
possibility that future exploration, development or mining results
will not be consistent with the Company's expectations; accidents,
equipment breakdowns, labor disputes or other unanticipated
difficulties with or interruptions in production and operations;
fluctuating prices of metals and other commodities; currency
fluctuations; the possibility of project cost overruns or
unanticipated costs and expenses; uncertainties relating to the
availability and costs of financing needed in the future; the
inherent uncertainty of production and cost estimates and the
potential for unexpected costs and expenses; regulatory restrictions,
including environmental regulatory restrictions and liability;
competition and loss of key employees; political instability in
Mexico; the availability of key equipment; the risk of disruption
from non-governmental organizations; risks relating to our common
shares and the public markets. Should one or more of these risks,
uncertainties or other factors materialize, or should underlying
assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from
those described in forward-looking information. Although we have
